    MoP Legendary Concerns.

    I was finishing the legendary meta quest for my alt shaman when it hit me !
    What will they do about legendary meta and cloak in the next expansion?
    Obviously the Meta Gems will be viable for t17 raiding, but the cloak is a bit doubtful

    Do you think they will nerf them, or make them scale worse over the levels ?
    I come across a wild river, that wonders through the trees.
    I stare into its running waters and fall unto my knees.
    In resignation to the forest, that's held me for so long.
    I close my eyes and drift away into nature's evensong.

    What makes you think that the gems will be viable next expansion? They'll probably be worse than the normal metas or nerfed.

    Reduced proc rate, like with old enchants.

    They send you a picture of the hours you spent farming the quest lines along with a picture of Ghostcrawler stomping on the meta gems.
    It would be dark inside my head...if not for the fires...

    Let's take Capacitive's example (melee/hunter meta) At 5 stacks, fires a Lightning Strike, which deals [280 + 75% AP] Nature damage.
    So I guess it will scale just fine IF it's not nerfed .

    They are flat percentage based bonuses, thus they scale.

    Odds are they will just not allow the legendary metas in sockets of helms outside the items range of MoP. The cloaks will likely get the reduced proc chance against targets over 93 like they've done in the past.

    Yeah but I doubt they'll work. Either there will be an item level restriction or a reduction in proc chance as you level up. Either way I very much doubt the meta will be useful in T17

    Sorry but since I was not in the legendary business before, what did they do to other legendaries on the following expansion ?

    The same thing that has happened to all other legendaries I suppose. Better cloaks will come out to replace the one we have. The meta will probably be changed so that it isn't usable on gear above level 90.

    For some the proc chance was greatly reduced. But typically the stats of newer gear simply far outweighed the procs of the old legendaries.

    What? They will just put an item level cap on them. It's not hard.

    Or, they will just remove the vendor from the game.

    They will just nerf the hell out of it for players level 91 and up.

    That works... until you get the one or two people with an inventory full of them.


    More likely, they'll just prevent them from being used on new items, like the Bonus weapon socket.

    The cloak will likely get DR when used above it's intended level.

    People used Ateish at the beginning of TBC, Warriors used glaives at the beginning of wrath. Its kinda cool if you ask me.

    Seeing as Nibelung has stopped proccing Val'kyrs at 84, it seems like procs of any kind don't activate anymore once you're 4+ lvls above the item's required lvl.

    Which means it will be nerfed.

    That was before they cared about such trivial things as 'balance' and 'working mechanics'. They won't do the same mistake again.
    “It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what.”

    I would guess they will go the same way as all legendary items?

    Get old and be last years gear?

    They'll just reduce the proc rate of the gems against next expac level mobs to really low amounts like they did with DTR iirc.
