    Why isn't the Legendary Quest Account wide ?

    I dont understand why Blizzard didnt do this. In Cata we had Dragonwrath and sorry to say but a Caster without it was usless. Now its the same with the Meta/Cloak.. You cannot switch your Class in this last Content Patch because it would take you what? 3+ Months to get the damn Meta/cloak. Trying Random raids with Alts .. "Sorry you got no Meta/Cloak"

    I dont say you should get it for free but actually doing the Quest once unlocks it so you can buy it on every toon you want or you decide to do the Quest and get it for free.. But this is just bullshit its the last Patch. Its nice that Blizzard gave us Ordos as a little extra but this doesnt realy help with this Problem

    A Char without Meta/Cloak is useless. Please dont deny this fact

    So you put the work in on one character and that entitles you to have a LEGENDARY item on every character? Yeah you'll find a lot of entitled players around this forum who agree with such a silly idea. As you can tell by now, I'm not one of them. We don't need Account Wide legendaries and it should -NEVER- happen. Especially to appease some overly demanding people who are a small minority.

    As far as I know the only raids people ask you to have the cloak for are the Ordos ones. And even then you don't need it on an alt as long as you have it on a character already. At least, I've had no issues getting raids on alts without it.

    Quite frankly, if the people you want to raid with require Legendaries on alts then they probably aren't worth raiding with. I can guarantee you right now that very little of them have the legendary on their alts and they're merely measuring up to the highest mark possible, probably to get carried through raids.

    If it was account wide... well like 80-90 % of players would have it..
    IMHO something like cutting in half all the necessary things to collect for every character you have completed legendary quest line on would be cool.

    I would say its not a bad idea to have it account wide. There is nothing exclusive about it, everyone and there fucking mother has one already. Would just save time/annoyance for people who would like to enjoy an alt.

    Legendary doesn't really feel legendary anymore, It feels like a dungeon quest where you get sweet loot except this time it took the whole expansion to complete it instead of 1 run.

    And 90% of the numbers are made up on the spot.....It wouldn't be that number of players that would have the cloak. I have met many players without the cloak, you notice them especially when you get a group for Ordos.

    As for accountwide Legendary, no. That is not the way to go. I can agree however that the chain is ridiculously long on alts. So a suggestion would be that they should shorten the quest chain if you have done it already. Maybe remove the reputation requirement or add a double rep item like with other factions, remove the valor quest part. Those two would be enough.

    The real question is why not? Just because you decide to log on another one of your toons somehow that means that all the time and effort put into getting it the first time is now worthless? When I do something in a game, any game for that matter, I would expect an accomplishment or achievement to stick with you no matter what you decide to do in the game. No one enjoys doing the same thing twice. Yes the first time was enjoyable, satisfying, etc. The second time is just a grind and let's get this over with. Also, the first time through a lot of us were getting additional awards. Achievements, loot, experiencing new content, so the effort wasn't that bad. Now though you don't have any of that. Pure grindy goodness.

    The Legendary questline isn't that hard you know. It's only...what; ten quests? So yeah, not hard. Not hard at all. It isn't like your running around all over Pandaria trying to grind a mob ten thousand times and doing hundreds of raids, it just requires a little patience that's all. It can be done in about 2-4 hours of work.

    Umm. They HAVE shortened it! Increased drop rates for the items and 6k valor says hi.

    I have the cloak on 3 chars, because I put in the effort, and really it wasn't much trouble nor did it take up too much time. You have had plenty of time to do the quest chain on alts, don't cry now because you didn't.

    I'm a casual player, and I have the cloak... all I have to say is NO FREAKING WAY. Why even call it legendary at that point? Why not just make it an overpowered green drop from the gulp frogs?!

    It's not like people who already haven't earned it would get one. Why it should be legendary? Well it would still be legendary because it's not like you somehow didn't have to grind for however many months to get it. You grinded the 3+ months to get one. Why wouldn't it be legendary? It is the same person playing that character. Rewards should be awarded to players NOT characters.

    I pay a ton of VP for a weapon... why shouldn't all of my toons get it? I pay a ton of gold for a piece of gear... why shouldn't all of my toons get one? Should all gear -- poor quality to legendary -- just go into one big bag so all of your toons can access it? See where this is going? If my toons cannot share an average item in the game why should they be able to share the best items?

    If you want it on an alt, go get it. DOn't get that entitlement and ask Blizzard to put it in your hands.
    When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.
