    You are waiting for your cloak. It didn't take you much effort or work to get your item. Just time.

    That's the connection, and I agree with it 100%.
    Except that you actually have to work for the legendary. Admittedly not particularly difficult work, but it's not like it just gets handed to you without you having to lift a finger.

    RNG held me back way back with collecting secrets - had a stretch of a couple of months where I didn't get ANY off bosses other than Lei Shen.

    To be fair, i cant call this item "Legendary". Its far from the real meaning of Legendary. Yes it have some OP stats but thats all... legendary is supposed to be rare powerful item, not common as hell powerful item. But im not surprised, its the new Bli$$ard after all. They will do everything to please their customers (and attract more), no matter if they are hardcore raiders or casuals...

    This legendary doesn't require work, all it requires is an active subscription for a very long period of time. A big part of what used to be legendaries was your team giving it to you. Now that everyone can get it, regardless of difficulties, the legendary aspect of it is diminished anyway.

    So yeah - assuming RNG didn't screw you up, you would have it by now.
    I'm talking about having your legendary quest ready for 5.4, and just doing 5.4 stuff day one to get it.

    Yes the items might take some time, depending on RNG

    There is no legendary this expansion. Just a nice cloak with a unique colored name.

    The argument that it's easy to get is freaking stupid every legendary has been brain dead easy to get don't kid yourself and think it hasn't been all of them have mostly been farm this or grind this over and over.

    It doesn't bother me the term you can't help the ignorance of others who refuse to learn any better you just ignore them like you would a child crying over someone else touching his or her toy.

    Tell us again about how your guild progressed all the way up to Black Temple, downed Illidan, and gave you the Glaive when it dropped.
    Exactly.

    To get a legendary in MoP is just going through the motions.

    Terrible example. The guild didn't beat Illidan so they could get a legendary. They beat him because he was the current raid content at the moment. Getting handed a legendary because "oh, you're here and you can use this" is pretty "welfare."

    Doesn't matter or change the fact that it was easy to get just kill a mob over and over.

    They dropped the battle ground requirements for the quest chain? No? Oh... you had me interested there for a moment.

    Terrible response. No one said anything about how they only progressed to get the legendary. Where did you get that idea.

    Honestly, I feel that walking out to your mailbox to get a welfare check takes more effort than getting this cloak :S

    I have never had a legendary when it was relevant to the content... And that's perfectly find because it gave the items that much more value. To look upon someone with a legendary with Awe and admiration, hoping to some day be able to work hard and be graced with one of my own. A goal to reach out to...

    "Legendary" cloak? pft, heck no. Everyone is running around with them and the only reason someone would not have the cloak is either...

    1.) They are lazy.
    2.) They are new to 90.
    3.) They just did not care about it.

    There is literally no excuse to NOT have one of them on at least one character! It is the ultimate definition of welfare legendary! No work really required, just time. I honestly PRAY that they do NOT do this again. I don't care if I cant have a Legendary, what I do care about is that the Legendary items are, you know, actually Legendary!

    There was literally a line of people getting their cloaks day 1 of 5.4 with me xD

    People like to overly simplify things. What they really mean is, "Legendary that more people have than just me and 2 other guys on the server".

    No doubt they are the same people who thought having a random 1% drop chance on legendaries during BT was an amazing model to use and showed skill and dedication.
    Guilds could have killed Illidan over and over again and never get the legendary, meanwhile another guild could have been incredibly lucky and gotten it on the first attempt, then there's deciding who to give it to. They were rare yes, but they weren't a show of how much dedication you'd put into getting them.

    The feeling of obtaining this legendary is very underwhelming, particularly when you see almost every other character with one. Having said that, as long as this isn't going to be the norm for obtaining legendary gear, im ok with it.

    Wtf else do you expect?

    When you break down anything in WoW enough, people label it as easy.

    'oh pve is easy, you know what's gonna happen'. 'oh arena is easy, it's just rock paper scissors'.
