    Legendary solution...

    Now I know a lot of people prefer the old model of legendary's, and some who enjoy the new approach. Well how about the best of both worlds. Have an expansion long questline ending with a legendary, and a legendary for a specific class. You could even call it something else. A higher tier than legendary.

    Legendary quests should never have been doable in LFR. Im hoping with flex around now if they decide to follow a similar path next expansion it will only be Flex/normal/heroic since they'll never make it be "heroic content only" as legendaries should be.
    If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.

    Yea I can agree with that. I can not think of a name but a new grade of gear beyond legendary would be a good idea imo.

    Shrug. I kind of prefer this method of legendary. Previous ones were shitty in that you were or weren't eligible to go for one on something as arbitrary as what class you chose to roll. I mean it worked great for the Rogue legendary in that you got a super cool rogue themed quest chain, but I think they can provide that sort of content without having to give out an OP legendary at the end, like they did with the Warlock green fire chain.

    Not that the rogue legendary was OP, they were actually not that great.

    This is nonsense really, every single legendary has been completeable in NM so it's never been based on difficulty. They're just a grind/RNG and little more.

    Did you read what I said or just kneejerk to post your two cents with a pointless factoid not being challenged? I said they'll never make it "heroic ontent only" as it should be. Key words "never" and "should". Im quite well aware than legendaries in the past have been obtainable through normal content and now can be obtained from the cesspit that is LFR. They SHOULD have only been obtainable from heroic content since the inception of heroic content in wrath.
    If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.

    making the legendary such a long grind only penalises returning subscribers who feel they cannot catch up and will therefore be at a disadvantage for a very long time and may infact just give up

    Now this is really nonsense. There's a huge gap from LFR to normal mode for starters. Hell even getting into a raid good enough to down many of the bosses, for example, was a lot hard than hitting a button to queue up for LFR lol.

    I remember there being artifact items. Only for GMs if I remember well. It could make a nice addition to the game. I like your idea OP.
    Don't be sad because of people, they will all die.

    But how many guilds were going to put returning players at the front of the line for drop legendaries ?

    yea but I see it as a reward rather than a penalty. A reward for players sticking with the questline the whole expansion. To get a nice cloak with cool procs. I like the model even though it is a long time. Though as a I mentioned before a new grade would be fitting. God tier weapons or something.

    Just saw the artifact mentioned and I like it. This would no doubt please the players who enjoyed the previous models.

    People are made of stronger stuff than that and contrary to what everyone seems to think there's never been a time in the past when most everyone gets a legendary. This time won't be an exception to that either. It's true that with patience everyone who really wants one can probably attain one. Most won't. Most players have never had a legendary. It will be surprising if 1 in 5 get the cloak.

    They survived that then and they'll survive it now.

    You need to do a lot more then just hitting a button and queue up for LFR to get the legendary cloak.

    I feel obligated to say "now this is really nonsense" again lol. Have you done normal mode raids? In LFR the mechanics are almost non-existant, and you can /afk if you want to. That's why a lot of people refer to it as a "welfare legendary". Guys that do 30k dps, can get this legendary, as long as they just do LFR for the week. Is the grind long? Definitely, but doesn't change the fact that it lacked challenge.

    Oh rubbish, you don't have to do a single bloody thing that requires any challenge at all. Stop patting yourself on the back. At least the Shadowmourne quest required testing mettle. 3 man a bloody elite in Krasarang and do some BGs, grind valor. So hard. Funny your bullshit meter doesn't work when you spew it.

    lol ... legendaries are not the reason they left and sure as hell won't be the reason they come back (if ever).

Fun can't be quantified with straight-up data, and trying to use statistics to measure fun is a dangerous logical minefield.

    Exactly lol. The guy will probably respond with "well you could just get warglaives if you killed Illidan" or something, ignoring the fact that going through Kara, Gruul's Lair, Tempest Keep, SSC, and then through Black Temple, all the way to Illidan was about 10 times more difficult then the current legendary. His bullshit detector is at max level every time he logs in and posts lol.

    You need a lot more then 30k dps to do the final challenge. Don't lie.

    Which part? Where you collect 5k timeless coins or where you kill the 4 different celestials? The coins part comes easy if you just run around and kill rares... really the coins come from any part of the isle. For the 4 different celestials, just do them in a raid. Honestly, all you have to do is tap one with one attack, and if you die, you still get credit for the kill, even if you aren't in a raid group.
