There should only ever be one copy of a legendary per xpac, that would truly make the lucky recipient and the item deserving of the term legendary.
Not sure how the proc from your cape is any different from the proc off of madness weapons in DS which were far easier to get in all honesty. The only difference is the color of the item /shrug
And no I wouldnt say its easy to get, my character is pretty well geared but ive barely got any of the way into the wrathion quests.....Im still collecting sigils of wisdom and power due to them NEVER DROPPING! for me, I havnt even looked at what I gotta do after that
Treat those people who give you poop about your "welfare" cloak just like you would any idiot in LFR / LFD... ignore and dont give them a second thought.
Legendary implies it is rare like they have been previously in WoW.
So to me it is not legendary other then the color code when mouseovering the item.
Second sentence on WoWwiki about Legendary.Generally there are very few of these items on any given server.
Point is, historically speaking legendary has little to do with the color code but all to do with it being rare and powerful.
See where your reasoning is flawed?

@Kangodo: Yes. You had to Raid BT when it was actually Content. Which means - When Kael'thas hadn't been killed once. Yes it's not much. You just had to raid to get the Glaives. But did everyone kill Illidan when he was actually content? Often enough to get both Glaives, since the drop rate was and is low enough to make it work? No. Not everyone could. You had to rely on your group. You had to progress all the way up to Illidan, kill his sorry ass and then - grind. I don't think the Cloak was a bad Idea tbh. But it is welfare, since everyone with A LITTLE luck and time could get it. Even through LFR. People are mad or call it welfare just because of that. Because you don't have to do at least somewhat challenging raid content to get to it. It doesn't matter if it's a drop of a Boss. If the Boss is difficult enough it isn't welfare anymore. It's only welfare to decent players, with a somewhat skilled raid and with a better Raid Performance than everyone else that can carry the Legendary.
Short: Cloak Welfare because it's just simple grinding. Other Legendaries aren't welfare since it wasn't just your own sorry ass who worked towards the Legendary and you actually had to Raid.
