    Nope. It wasn't uncommon for top guilds to have 5 full sets of Warglaives in their raid team.

    Also, by definition, WoW 'thrived' during Wrath of the Lich King. But hey. Facts and figures eh?

    Legendary item really isn't a legendary if it doesn't look like one. Which these legendary cloaks don't. They are just stat sticks that look like shit and will be replaced in one teir. Atleast old legendary weapons looked cool and still look cool after all these years. How rare they are doesn't matter.

    It was also common for top raid guilds to have none because the drop rate was shit. Atleast with newer ones you atleast know you are going to be rewarded with them after putting in the effort.

    It comes down to what your idea of a "legendary item" is. One way to look at it is that it's an extremely rare item that only a few people on a realm have it.

    Another concept of a legendary item would be the more character-centric, lore-driven perspective. Lore always revolves around YOUR character and is written in a way as if you were a major protagonist, no matter if there's 12.000 other people on the server who are getting the exact same illusion. It's not about how many people have it, but more like "this is the one super-powerful item your toon has been working on getting throughout the whole expansion, given to him by this super-important lore guy".

    Nothing wrong with either of the two. You just need to relax. The problem is that a lot of WoW players are like pesky neighbors, they keep peeking over the fence and comparing their car and swimming pool to yours. Just because you think the term "legendary" should be preserved for the showoff item that puts you on top of the special snowflake ladder, it doesn't mean it has to be used that way.

    Wrong. Its written about 25 alliance/horde heroes. YOUR character is the only one working for the black prince. However the last one it was the rogue of the 25 that was working for the black prince.

    If you manage to grind 6k valour, gather 10 sigil of wisdom, 10 sigil of power, 40 titanium bars, grind to exalted, grind 20 secrets , 12 runestones, unlock all of the isle of thunder, down a world boss, complete some bgs, complete multiple side quests and challenges, let alone what 5.4 has to offer then i would say you deserve the legendary. So how is having so many requirements in order to obtain it "everyone having it"

    I loved the idea of legendaries being limited. It doesn't have to be as limited as Atiesh, just be limited enough to make not everyone have one. As much as I hated Cata, Cata legendaries were nice. They weren't crazy rare as in most guilds has a decent amount of them, but they were rare since only dps casters and rogues could have them. This a legendary for every class/spec is kind of lame imo.

    It's not a legendary in my mind. I want a legendary weapon. Hunters still the only class to not have a legendary BiS, as well as having gone the longest of any class without receiving a legendary. Not to mention Thori'dal had practically no lore behind it at all.

    Point is, you don't get to define it.
    The difference is it was always widely spread in Diable which made it baseline to begin with.

    This legendary takes many hours to craft but is piss easy to get. Make it harder to pass quest by doing some hard group quest (a tank n spank boss to kill with 3 other people isn't really hard).

    Thori'dal was best in slot.

    Now legendary its just the new epic items... they are no so common but not so rare. They realy need to add a nou degree of high end item so u will feel like u have a "legendary" item, ho will be hard to get like Atiesh staf were, or have incredibile graphics like Thunderfury.

    They could just rename it to Personal Storyline Quest Reward. While it may be orange colored, it does not have any legendary feeling in it.

    Rare items are extremely common. Why do we still call them rare?

    Because it's just a label.

    Please god let them never return to the "grinding shards/fragments for one player" like Shadowmourne or Dragonwrath.
    While Diogenes was relaxing in the sunlight in the morning, Alexander, thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, "Yes, stand out of my sunlight". Alexander then declared, "If I were not Alexander, then I should wish to be Diogenes", to which Diogenes replied, "If I were not Diogenes, I should also wish to be Diogenes."

    So hypocritical. You were probably the guy who was complaining about all the "special snowflakes" since vanilla, because you didn't get to be one. Congrats, you got your wish.

    Can't stand other people with orange pixels getting more attention, can you?

    Going to the cliche "You just want to be a special snowflake!" only tells me that you're a very jealous, selfish and unpleasant person.

    I have to wonder if OP is concerned because it's available to every class and spec, or because anyone who wants to devote time to get it can?
    Can you be more specific Bobby?
    If it's a class/spec thing, then I dunno what to say.
    If it's a time sink= reward, then I ask how is it different then farming glaives, frostmourne, thunderfury or the others, I mean really, as long as you can organize a group and lock stuff, you too can have the hammer from ulduar/staff from firelands/daggers from DS.
    As long as you aren't completely retarded, and can organize a group, you can have all these for only time and a little effort.
    So how is it any different? All specs and classes can get it. Okay, I understand that, but at least not one specific group (casters/melee/healers ect) have an absolute edge for the xpac. So I don't see that issue as much of a loss. Other then that, I fail to see any real reason to support your feelings.

    You know there was a time when Legendary meant something and it usually meant something only to the guilds that could farm them and their "superstar" **INSERT CLASS HERE**. To everyone else in the game it was the equivalent of some moron sitting on Mirmidon's Head or Invincible outside the AH 24/7/365. Yeah, we get it, you're special.

    With the length of the legendary quest line in MoP spanning a year and likely 6 months of raiding if you started from scratch today it is indeed.... legendary.

    Trust me, having done the green fire quests and dueling the Prince, both are legendary worthy experiences.

    Yes, the legendary cloak is very accessible. It is also a major undertaking worthy of an orange.
