How about an extremely low chance to drop into your bags? I hate building a legendary. It was best when it dropped.
"It's clear this is another bash Apple thread. Such things are not conducive to a good discussion."
WRONG! Those are the BEST discussions!
I think the only problem here is the people that seem to think other people earning the same PvE gear--regardless of method--somehow detract from their own experience. Total fallacy, a dash of ego and a sprinkling of childishness all thrown together. Voila.
Somebody I had never met said in chat that they won a pretty snazzy chestplate from Ordos today--a boss which is arguably an easy win, yet one I hardly ever have both the time and inclination to get a raid group together for. Do I feel that that person didn't deserve that chestplate? Heck no. They got in the group for it and did their part. How much does his getting that chestplate affect me? Not at all. Zero. Nada. Zilch. So why in the seven hells should I resent the fact that he got it? I shouldn't, and don't. Good for anyone who gets gear that betters their character in PvE. That can only help them be better in future groups.
Now if all of this crying was over PvP gear it'd at least be more understandable since you're in direct conflict with the other people gearing up. In PvE, however, there is no contest between the players short of who has the bigger epeen.
Get. Over. It.
The elite in Krassarang should have been a solo scenario. They didn't actually have the tech for that until 5.2 though, so probably why they didn't do it. It was out of place, the legendary quest was a personal thing the whole way through except that quest. Which is probably why they nerfed it. While I don't think EVERY legendary should be like this one was, I did like this format. Though the solo scenarios should have been more difficult. I was expecting something difficult and just walked in there and 1 shot each of them. Was kinda a let down And I wasn't decked out in heroic gear, I had quit heroic raiding the day we killed heroic jin'rohk so I had no heroic gear (well atleast from 5.2, that toon STILL has heroic gear from 5.0 lol).

My God, what a horrible creation. People seeing what they want? Thank God they tried to shy away from that. I know it pisses me off when I'm in an heroic raid, yet in the back of my head all I can think is 'some casual player is playing a heroic dungeon and not wiping.' -Vodkarn
The principle problem with your point of view is that you completely fail to show any understanding of how anyone else outside of your immediate circle of friends experiences the game. Whether you lack the capacity or will to do so is indeterminate, but either way all your argument and attitude is doing right now is undermining the very small amount of credibility you still have left.... lol?

wowhead.com. Note that in order to disprove you point, all you need to do is read the comments by people claiming it was hard. And if you read the comments dating back to June the picture becomes pretty clear.
As I have already said, for most fairly successful normal mode raiders, this shouldn't be too difficult. But then again what legendary ever has been? For the LFR hero, based on gear limitations alone, it was always going to be a tough ask to have it done before 5.4.
No it's not a matter of the task being impossible to achieve, but it does require an extraordinary amount of effort, commitment and perseverance, all of which are attributes worthy of a reward like the legendary cloak and generally beyond the practical capabilities of most LFR "raiders".
Every difficulty is designed to be beaten... that's the point, determination buff was to prevent people from bailing after a wipe. In order to avoid a wipe, you go over strats and mechanics and you still learn the battle. LFR isn't made of dedicated raiders. Those who run it would never learn/experience the full fight unless they were able to bring the boss down. If you're stuck on low DPS and can't push Lei Shen into transition phase, you're never going to learn it. Moreover, uping damage, health, and healing does nothing if you can't master mechanics. Standing in lightning whip will hurt. A lot.
If you don't think a long grind should guarantee a legendary then why aren't you complaining about Shadowmourne or Dragonwrath, or any other legendary that required you to collect X of Y in order to complete it? The only difference between this legendary and the old ones are:
a) individual progress
b) varying difficulty
- The individual progress allows you to obtain the legendary despite the guilds wishes. I addressed this issue in an earlier post, but basically, it saves on drama and QQ.
- Varying difficulty is the difference between LFR and Normal.
If the legendary was available on Normal and up, I could just buy all the VP gear that I earned from HScen, Dailies, 5H, etc, and then upgrade it. Tada, I can now faceroll the normal mode and get the legendary just as quickly, with as much easy as LFR. What's the difference? The fight's are harder? Sure, but I can outgear it and ignore mechanics anyways, so what's the point?
You can't afk for a fight - which is what you're claiming all LFRers do; that they don't work for a legendary. That's simply not true. Whether I spend 15 minutes on an LFR boss, or 20 minutes on a normal boss, the effort was still put in. Whether I did the boss on LFR or normal, the RNG for the grind was still just as long.
Your point about level 90 is irrelevant.
Bottom line: Your argument is simply that casuals get the legendary when its current, and your sole reason for this is because you want to be a special snowflake. Why wouldn't you want potential PUGers to have better gear?
Since the legendary could be obtained just as easily in normal as in LFR, your main point about lack of accomplishment is moot.
Or are you against getting the legendary in Normal mode? In which case, you are part of the 0.000001% of players that does Heroic modes in his/her sleep in which case, your view is completely skewed on what an average player should do.
