    Them being an RNG drop means nothing when you consider their droprate and who they were dropping from. If you got them from 5 mans you might have a point, but not when it's from Illidan.
    Rare =/= special

    Getting them was pure luck and having loads of free time. No, there's nothing special about it.

    The cloak is one of the most visual and noticeable pieces of gear on your character. Having the possibility of hiding it doesn't change that, combined with the fact that very few people hide their cloaks.

    Uh, rare DOES mean special. Rare things are considered special IRL. How else do you make something special in game? Cause the Legendaries now sure as hell aren't special.

    Not really it was far to easy to get.
    Id much prefer a legendary that was much harder to get and almost required winning the lottery.
    Even if that made it so I never obtained one.
    Always been more the journey rather than the goal to me, and especially so in wow.

    With the current system its just;
    Oo shiney -> ah thx shiny stuff -> now what
    /meh
    /do other stuff

    Rare stuff irl is special because it costs a shitload of money.

    Rare stuff as in you just have to be lucky to get it? Nothing special about it.

    You make something special in-game by making it take long-lasting dedication and effort to get your hands on. Which is what we're seeing more and more of.

    While I did like the whole premise of going through a long series of quests/ raids to attain the final reward, I do think the whole concept of a Legendary item has been eroded now with everyone getting one. Maybe it would have worked out better as a better-than-raid-lvl epic?

    Yes, everyone wants to see content. But 'Legendary' should refer to something prestigious and rare as well as powerful. Before any one even begins to accuse me of being elitist, I've never gotten one Legendary before and am completely fine with not having the item. What I did mind was not being involved in the quests.

  7. #307
    Let's put it this way; I have 5 characters at 90. ONE of them is getting the cloak, I'm not doing this chain again. I also know several people who have given up and won't be finishing.

    when I see someone with the cloak, I know exactly how much time and effort they put into it (NEVER DOING THE WRATHION FIGHT AGAIN EVERRRRRR). They didn't just get a lucky drop from a boss 20 levels under them.

  8. #308
    Haha no. is that even a question. Never have legendary's been an armor slot item, except for that molten core POS neck piece. Legendary's are legendary because of how awesome they look, and making weapons outa that gives it an unlimited possibility of exception. But with the story line behind it, and the suspence of the black princes story line, it kinda turns out to add up. Why would a mere mortal (the black prince) be able to give out the best weapons in the game so far. I liked out a boss could drop it, it made me wanna do that more. Add more Legendary boss drops blizz!!!

    Those cloaks heavily make me remember asia grind mmos (MU Online anyone? http://images.mmorpg.com/images/scre...line/11975.jpg)
    Its funny cause its in line with the rng grind to get them

  10. #310
    The quest line is one of the best there has ever been in terms of legendary progression. However I think it would have been a lot better if there were harder solo challenges which required you to gear up to progress through it rather than just collecting 20 of whatever from the raids which is gated by RNG.
    I think they can make a system where it won't have as much RNG gating and can reward skill without excluding the casuals.

  11. #311
    I'm fine with it being a cloak. I'm not find with it not being legendary as everyone has or will have one.

    You mean like making it to Illidan before you even get the chance for the lucky RNG?

    Really? Considering most of them were RNG drops anyway? That meant you farmed the same raids for months on end? Let's see.

    Sulfuras
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=17182

    So, What we have here, Is RNG random drops, a shit ton of mats, And more RNG drops. To form a mace made out of RNG.

    Thunderfury
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=19019

    Yet again, More random RNG drops from bosses that you have to farm for MONTHS on end. And a long questline for more RNG drops.

    Warglaives
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=32837

    Nothing but a pure RNG drop

    Thor'dal
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=34334

    Nothing but a pure RNG drop

    Val'anyr
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=46017

    Nothing but farming the same bosses over and over again for months on end, which equates to RNG drops

    Shadowmounre
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=49623

    Nothing but farming bosses over and over again for months on end, Not quite as RNG as some peices ALWAYS dropped.

    Dragonwrath
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=71086

    Again, Nothing but farming bosses over and over and over again for months on end, Again not quite as RNG because you always got something at least.

    Golad and Tiriosh
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=77949
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=77950

    Again, Farming DS Bosses for months on end for fragments from bosses, still not quite as RNG as you always got some per boss.


    Legendaries were NEVER FUCKING SPECIAL. Okay? Sorry your special little snowflake has melted. Get the fuck over it
    Probably the only reason people think they were special was because only one person was getting it. Each guild chose that one person to get it first. Sure, with the cloaks everyone can get it leading to a "non-special legendary", but at the very least people won't be leaving guilds and leaving the entire guild without the legendary that everyone worked towards. Dragonwrath and these cloaks are better as you have more people working on it rather than just one at a time, so it doesn't become such a huge loss if something happens to that person.

    That's the point of legendaries. Not every class can use them. You guys had your legendary in Sunwell. I for one, am disappointed it's a cloak. Something more unique would be much more fitting other than an item 95% of players will be running around with within a few weeks of 5.4.

    I like the singlular quest line across all patches.Not sure if it should be legendary. I'm glad it wasn't a weapon as that would have been really awful to have half the server plus alts with legendary weapons (like Firelands).

  19. #319
    There is nothing legendary about a cloak you can get without stepping foot in to an organised raid

    "Legendary" this expansion means "please stay subbed the entire time so we can milk you".

    People checking out the new patch finishing LFR then un-subbing until something cool comes around is a problem for Blizz.
    They need some carrot to keep you there week in week out and since dailies, rep farms and such weren't compelling enough they had this nice backup plan.

    They know players are suckers for gear so it was long legendary chain with minimum catchup (mostly there to hook returning players with the hope that they're not hopelessly behind)

    Epics are not epic, so legendary is the new epic that everyone can get (but small caveat: you have to stay subbed the whole expansion dude, then you're legendary to us - kachink $$).
