    They mesh well with the game itself but not a community that thinks everything outside of raids is a checklist they have to finish first.


    Sadly a very large chunk of the remaining WoW playerbase aren't really interested in MMOs and would probably prefer MOBAs
    A game without obstacles or challenges is not a game, it's a sandbox.

    Hard to look at them favorably in any light...pretty much every legendary I've ever obtained was low to bottom tier...definitely never even had a single BiS legendary.

    I like the random chance for a piece of awesome gear.

    However, I don't really like the amount of them and that some of them are just greatly superior due to their effects for your output/survival.

    Definitely another reason why I won't play an alt, or even another spec.

    Honestly?
    Completely indifferent.

    Maybe I played this game for too long but I can no longer get excited about stats etc, because of the knowledge that, in the end, it doesn't matter and will get outdated far too quickly.

    I don't think I've ever been vocal about legiondaries so here I go:
    I like them.
    I hated people who whined about not getting the perfect legendaries. I tend to avoid whine threads on the matter as of today because they make me so angry. I miss tons of legendaries and I have all the trash ones, so I come up with creative ways to make the best of them. Others prefer to bugger others because "I have all legendaries except one I would need slightly more, WTF Blizz".

    It feels unrewarding.

    RNG really sucks and the way this game is heading is the more RNG the better for the devs to keep us all hooked.

    My DK finally hits 110, I run caches and bosses on him...first legendary is the worst one...like seriously...WORST. I don't even feel like playing him, I want to delete him. That feeling should NEVER happen when you get a legendary. If we could use unlimited legendaries like Diablo, I guess I wouldn't care so much...

    Also it is SLOW once you hit 5-6 of them the rest come so damn slow. Pace needs to speed up so by now those doing usual stuff should have all. I am not running hours for chests just to get them all faster...talking on my main here too. I think I have 6 now.

    Damn it's only been a year already? Jeez, I hope they announce the next patch after Argus or expac soon

    It is still the worst idea Blizzard has ever had, by far.
    The legendary system together with a few other mistakes brings down what would otherwise have been a pretty cool expantion and puts it below WoD in terms of fun and quality design.

    The funny thing is, you're actually better off deleting him and leveling a new one. It takes less time after all.

    Legendary dependent specs show how lame is this system.

  12. #92
    They sort of trivialize the concept of a piece of gear being considered legendary in the first place, but I'm ok with them. I think the wear-limit can make them situational, which is nice.

    I'm not sure the expansion would be any worse, or less interesting, if they didn't exist at all, however.
    And it's squeezing all the air out of this goddamn cave I live in.

    Setting aside the idea of a legendary being a possible reward for, say, cracking nuts in Valsharah, I think they should have done these as two different levels of legendary:

    1) Powerful legendaries that make a significant difference because of the effect/proc on the item should have been a quest reward item for a chain that took a significant investment of time and effort.

    2) Legendaries that are nice to haves and mostly useful because of their item level should have been done as they are currently - a "WOW"! surprise reward that drops randomly.

    I really like them. Just remove any damage increasing aspect for next expansion and the dps can finally quit their bitching about "BIS".

    You also need to run Emerald Nightmare, Trial of Valour and Nighthold, LFR/Normal/Heroic to optimize your chances, I think that's when you obtain one per week.

    Below WoD? Really? You got a weird concept of the terms fun and quality.

    I wish they had Diablo 3's legendary drop rate. Only one of my characters managed to get a third legendary after all this time and it's honestly too much effort to try "grinding for them." In D3 you just run the equivilent to an M+ and you will absolutely get at least one every, single, time. It's just the question of how long until you get the one you want and if it's upgraded.
    Soothing Mist:"Healing them for a minor amount every 0.5 sec, until you take any other action."
    Jade Serpent Statue: "The statue will also begin casting Soothing Mist on your target. healing for 50% as much as yours. "
    [What's half of minor?]
    "Statue casts Soothing Mist at a nearby ally for toddler healing."

    Hated. Hated the concept, the RNG of them and the implementation. Would trather have had some kind of token system where you could select the ones you wanted. Not get 5 useless legendaries that made you rage when you got them

    They're fine now after they made the changes to how legendaries work. Hopefully this legendary system continues into the next expansion.

    The problem with legendaries is that the classes were designed and balanced around having specific ones.

    That would be the equivalent of requiring level 100 to raid effectively but shutting off XP at 99, and then "randomly" giving certain players the ability to hit 100.

    I say "randomly" because it was highly suspicious that early on it was only Mythic players, and twitch streamers that got to take advantage of the "bad luck protection" bug that enabled users who already received a legendary to get 1,2, or even 3 legendaries within the first month while 99% of the active player base hadn't even received 1.

    Many of these players have a full arsenal of legendaries to play around with/theorycraft. Meanwhile some of us are still hoping for that one GD legendary that makes the entire spec/design work.

    This is beyond false. As someone who has moved from playing LFR exclusively back into organized raiding, I can tell you that this demonstrably false.

    I am still working on fucking "Anger of the Half-Giants" the go to/must have for any Havoc spec. I hadn't received a legendary for MONTHS... and I just got my 3rd. The new 7.2.5 legendary ring.

    I am most certainly NOT working on Off Spec legendaries.

    This is the ENTIRE problem with the system. Some people... like yourself. Have been extremely lucky and have been able acquire multiple legendaries and are actually able to CHOOSE which when suits them best... or even more lucky to be able to swap them out for a given situation/fight/strategy/application. In which case I can imagine you are having a fucking blast... there are a great many of us still that are not that fortunate.

    What are you even talking about? They work the same way they always did and some classes are just not viable without their best ones.
    RNG decides if you can play the game at all in this expantion and it sucks.
