Realistically only people who have played through the entire expansion will be able to get this legendary. If you miss one patch you're not likely to get it until after 5.4. I missed a few weeks and i've just only started titan runestones.
Every other legendary questline has lasted one patch cycle, if it's okay for that to be a legendary then why isn't a cloak which takes much longer to get a legendary?
They're legendary cause they're time consuming, not because they're rare.
Not everyone will have it. So I'm not sure what your point is.

The color of an item used to refer to the rarity of an item. That is no longer the case and hasn't been for a long time. The color now refers to the quality of the item and nothing more.

You want legendary items to be legendary? Fine, only one person can have the item per server. If they transfer to another server they lose it, if they quit the game delete their character it doesn't matter. Nobody else can get that legendary item. There you have your precious Legendary Item is now truly a Legendary Item.
I guess the OP hasn't seen the new Glyph of the Weaponmaster for Warriors, legendaries for everyone =p
Legendaries were just drama and led to lots of guild poaching so I'm glad they're gone
I am playing the worlds smallest violin right now. I am also crying crocodile tears.
Legendary or not, everyone who attempts it has to go through all the same content and has put equal work in order to attain it. People complain about LFR and yet those same people who grind through normal/heroic still run LFR just to cap valor and also themselves get more drops required for those quests. Everyone is working just as hard as the next and STILL need to be able to beat the scenarios and those with better gear from normal/heroic have an easier time doing it.. I have zero sympathy. I also call you out for a minus 50 DKP
The only reason people argue for exclusivity on legendaries is selfishness. Legendaries used to write your own meal ticket into the best guilds if you won the lottery and got one to drop. They'd take total rejects just because they had a thunderfury, and then they'd train you to play properly.
So no. Nuts to that.
Eh, gear inflation is silly anyway. Both ilevels AND gear rarities.
In Vanilla, most people were wearing GREENS for gosh sakes! If someone joined your raid or dungeon group or BG, you'd lambast them for having lousy gear. You can't have your cake and eat it too. If we went back to Vanilla where Blues (?!) took serious work to get and MOST RAIDERS didn't have a complete set of purples, then sure, make Oranges rare as hell.
But we aren't at that place. It's only a color and like 0.5% difference in stats, but people want to be decked out in purple. Even blues are seen as lousy - in Vanilla, Blues were the holy grail of "casuals" (what passed as casual at the time). Dungeon sets were a thing - and an awesome thing. Even just having a full set of your class dungeon set was an accomplishment.
Though I kinda want to ask the OP if he's ever legit gotten a legendary before Wrath. Or before Cata. Or before Mists. Because often people complain about this but they, themselves, aren't even "good enough" (or lucky enough) to get the thing.
If ilevel and Blues/Purps/Oranges weren't things with the COMMUNITY (everyone expects you to be in full Purples now to invite you to anything!), then it wouldn't matter. But design the next expansion where the majority of people are in Green with a few Blue pieces and the really rare Purple? They have a cow!
Yeah, in that case it's entirely stupid. Now that I think about it, I can see you being right. I don't see a blue and green piece in Mists that has the same ilevel. Point taken.
While I'm at it, I'm also pissed they got rid of the "useless" "...of the ____" stuff. I want a 2 handed caster mace for my Dwarf Healadin, darnit! Varigan's Fist doesn't transmog onto a 1 hander! XD (I know, I know, I've heard legends that there's one from one boss of one of the raids, but I'll believe that when it drops into my bags.
