youll never 'GET RID' of elitist attitudes in WoW
some people need to feel more legendary than others to feel special
their lives are so crappy they need some form of superiority to justify their lives
so they look for that justification in a game because they cant find anything worth living for in the real world
Name one legendary that has not involved grinding ..... either repeatedly killing the same bosses etc or has many multiple steps grinding raids to get the things to make parts of it..
Thunderfury never took skill to get just be very very lucky IF both halves of the bindings drop, I raided MC back in the day every week for 12 months and then since have 5 chars exalted and then some but still have only seen one half of the bindings drop.
If thats not grinding I dunno what is.
At least with the cloak it seems achieveable and not quite to dependant on some random luck 1% drop.
Science has made us gods even before we are worthy of being men: Jean Rostand. Yeah, Atheism is a religion like bald is a hair colour!.
Classic: "The tank is the driver, the healer is the fuel, and the DPS are the kids sitting in the back seat screaming and asking if they're there yet."
Irony >> "do they even realize that having a state religion IS THE REASON WE LEFT BRITTEN? god these people are idiots"
A legendary to me is:
- An item that overshadows every single pieces of gear for that slot at the time it was created.
- An item that is rare enough to justify it being overpowered.
- An item that requires your guild to have progressed far enough into a dungeon
- Requires a time investment, through RNG or just long artificial gating, which limits the amount of it your guild can acquire.
- An item that people will notice
A legendary to me is not:.
- A requirement
- A common item (Let that sink in for a second...)
- Achievable through LFR
To me the cloaks felt like it was legendary just so people would try to get into raiding through LFR. It feels forced and the fact that it is so commons doesn't make it anything special. After grinding for the cloak, I got my cloak and didn't care about it. It's just like the Sunwell Legendary bow that was Legendary only so they could remove the arrow requirement and adjust the DPS... At least the legendary bow required you to progress through a whole dungeon with your guild and was very rare.
