If Blizzard were to create a legendary polearm, they could go and make 2 versions; 1 strength and 1 agility, without swapping out the name, looks or history behind it. They would still be able to keep the weapon proc, if it was something similar to the thunderfury proc (didn't give you a specific stat buff, but just something that everyone can have use for), since then the agi and strength parts would be the only things they would have to alter about the 2 versions. If they did then feral druids, hunters, paladins, warriors and DKs could all use it, that is much more variety than any of the other legendary weapons that has passed through this game.

Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian.
Priest only. 2H, not optimal, but those stats were very probably > any 1h/OH.
Not to mention, Alliance DID have Paladins, and there were also a ton of those using this weapon, but then again, it had nothing to do with anything being said in this topic.
YES!! we need one. All melee's had theirs (sulfurus, skillmourne, glaives) healers (mace from Ulduar which name i cant spell and cba pasting from Wowhead) and inc one is for casters. I havent played vanilla but did atiesh have agility version? that one could count as our legendary but ferals were so broken that it ain't worth mentioning...I demand we ferals get what we deserve: a legendary stick!

Atiesh had a AP version. The mace was amazing for healers. and well, sulfuras at the time was strong as hell and maybe not useful for druids, but people are saying a enhance shammy could use one? Talk about wasted weapon slot spaces, shut up about whats useful for you if you are going to take that argument route.
Complaining about no specific agi legendary for you while feral form? Well guess what? Rogues may have had thunderfury, glaives, and the bow from Sunwell (rolls eyes). Great that combat rogues are covered and a bow they would use more as a joke then anything. To bad combat is one (and possibly the least played) of three specs. Where's our legendary dagger for the specs that matter, the specs that the majority of rogues play? Simple, blizzard said they didn't want to make one because they couldn't effectively make it epic looking/feeling (or what ever... it was a pretty retarded excuse).
Fact is, Legendaries are most likely for the most part a roll of the dice. Yah they do try to flip flop back and forth a little to not simply favor specific classes. But I think the main decision on one is what quest line they could bend around the legendary and how they can make it graphically amazing and how it fits into the current tier of raiding and thats about it.
Do you guys have a chance at a feral legendary? Yah, I'd say you have just about as much chance (and as about much right to claim) a feral legendary as do dagger using rogues, any enhance/elemental shammy and any non-dk tank has, all of which have not seen any legendary that would even remotely help them.
I understand your desire, and am on board with you on wanting a legendary for my class. But thinking you are owed, deserve, and/or demand a legendary over others is pretty damn self centered and selfish.
When it comes down to it, cross your fingers for the Emerald Dream. Least then you most likely will have a chance, where as Blizzard has straight up said they don't wan to make a legendary dagger and Rogues are SoL until Blizzard back tracks on their current thinking.

I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.
