    I don't get why people say the legendary questline is so alt unfriendly. I have played my main since the very beginning of MoP, sure, and I got the cloak on him two weeks ago. But I have an alt that I leveled to 90 in 5.2, and it hasn't really been hard to catch up on the questline. They have massively increased sigil droprates, and you can get them from lfr and normal in the same week. They have decreased the valor requirement down to 3k. Yes, it will take several weeks to catch up, but you certainly don't have to have played the entire expansion on an alt, or done lfr every single week, in order to get the cloak. My alt just started collecting runestones this week--10 more to go.

    No one is saying they are entitled, its plain and stupid to try and force a gear restriction on one fight. For one piece of gear. And as for the raiding guild goes, other people have lives. We dont sit around all day playing WoW full time like you probably do, its not even fun enough of a game to if we did have full time raiding guilds. Being in a raiding guild doesnt make you cool, it makes you a nerd with no social life. So stop trying to make yourself sound badass.

    Its really sad to see people like you come here and be a total dick just for the sake of being a total dick. Dont you have something better to do? Or is your life that miserable?
    -Tells someone they sound like internet warrior
    -says how "big he is" and that "they wouldn't say shit to my face like that"
    -Complains about someone being a dick by being a dick
    -Fails to see irony

    Not even sure why people are arguing this. It's going to happen. Want to see the boss? Better get working on that cloak buckaroo.
    "BUT MY SERVER HAS NO PEOPLE" Mine either. Openraid is badass though.

    I have a life. I do not sit on wow all day. I am married and have a 6 year old daughter and work 50+ hours a week. We go out on weekends with friends and do social stuff. We are 3/12 heroic in throne now. If you are good you can manage your life well and still make time to enjoy the game as i do. My boss and i are in the same guild, he is the GM. So we set raid hours that work for us. 9Pm to Midnight after the kids are in bed. We are a little behind in progression due to replacing 3/4 of the guild for performance reasons, but we are crawling along. You can make time. Just because people raid does not mean they are lifeless.

    I think it's perfectly fine to have the cloak be a requirement for the boss. By the time 5.4 is released, my main and the 2 alts I care most about will have the cloak. If you haven't been doing the legendary questline on a character, do you really care enough about that character enough to have the boss matter to you?

    I was under the impression that creating content for players that required some effort to reach was one of the essentials to MMOs. Gating is an important part of MMOs, like it or not. If you fail to put in the effort on a main character, you do not deserve to do everything. If you unsub and resub constantly, you do not deserve to do everything. If you showed up a couple times a week and cleared on LFR, you get the cloak in time for 5.4 - barring unrealistically bad RNG.

    What's wrong with things being alt-unfriendly? The essence of an alt is that it does not have everything a main character has - hence 'alt'. If you're in a guild that requires alts for progression then you likely do not care because your progression outpaces the legendary items already in terms of acquiring them for progression kills. If you're mad because your alt can't have legendary things then you're simply feeling far too entitled for the time you put in on an alt.

    Ordos? Perfect design. Gate things, make people put a modicum of effort in to a character.

    You keep forgetting, that it isn't personal "reward", you can't do anything with that content after done with grind unless there are other people who have done this grind as well. And as such - it is rather penalty than any reward at all. You don't go and solo this world boss, you need a lot of other people who made through this quite extensive grind.

    People keep substituting term "massive gating" by "personal reward". I hope those who defend this deeply obscene design for Ordos, will be especially enjoying themselves on Thursdays+, feel their specialness when there will be no other people with whom you could fight this boss.

    So, how can it be compared to video game? Won't you feel hopelessly alone without all those "entitled" people on thursdays+? Your reward will be loneliness sitting near your precious "deserved" world boss with noone else near you. Just so happens that you actually need other people to kill it. By despising "entitled" people, be sure that you will have someone left to play with you and kill such "deserved" bosses.
    This type of entitlement misses the boat as to the concept of MMOs. If you cannot make friends to do content with, why are you playing an MMO? Massive grinds can be parsed from a slow, painful collection quest from those who actually stayed subscribed through the expansion. If I can't do it one week? Tough, I'm not going to unsub and feel that Blizzard owes me more pixel dragons to fight.

    TL;DR: This game is pandas fighting dinosaurs. Don't cry when you spent no time on your panda and you can't play with all the dinosaurs - that's the point of an MMO.

    Even if every single poster in this thread was complaining about this pre-req for Ordos (they are not), that is nowhere near representative of the greater population of "average" WoW players. Your "average" player actually doesn't raid at all, doesn't read forums, certainly doesn't post to forums ... your "average" WoW player won't ever realize you need the cloak to fight Ordos. They might not ever realize Ordos even exists.

    I feel the same way this guy feels about this. We worked hard for the stuff and deserve the exclusive content. Ppl just gotta learn that they aren't entitled to everything. If you want the legendary, actually put some effort into queuing for lfr to get your quest items. This quest is way easier compared to the pain that was the Shadowmourne line where it could only be completed on 25m normal.
