    Help comfort me

    I changed my loot spec midfight from "fire" to "frost" so I can get a frost relic. After the fight was done I got a frost legendary. That could've been the fire bracers or the fire belt. I'm so stupid for changing my loot spec midfight.

    Actually, if you had many fire legendaries, the chances of getting another one in that boss were much smaller than getting a Frost legendary. The bad luck protection calculates your chances of a Fire-spec relic separated from your chances of getting a frost one.

    This right here, you actually didn't hurt your fire chances if you got a frost specific because it's all handled on a "can i use" basis

    Like other posters have stated, they have separate rolls.

    If you have more fire legendaries than frost legendaries already then chances are you wouldn't have gotten anything at all.

    But the real question is: if you don't want frost legendendaries then why even want frost relics at all? Makes zero sense.

    Feels bad.

    had a fail moment just now on my 101 priest, had a boa legendary token and used it without checking my loot spec so now have a disc legendary. Ah well at least was +300 ilev.

    Don't worry, you didn't miss out on anything. Even if you never change specs, you'll eventually get all legendaries for your class and after that even tokens for alts.

    Comfort yourself with food!




    OP, not end of the world... I've forgotten to have my loot set to my off spec... was on current; gotten 5 legendaries so far for a spec I don't use!

    Oh and I guess you already have all the good frost legendary, yeah in that case that sucks lol.

    In 2 weeks time you aren't going to want the belt nearly as much, so don't be too upset about that.
