    Blizzard should make it possible to do the MoP legendary cloak quest line again

    With Wrathion actually being used in the game now after not being used for many many years, why did they remove the questline in the first place? It was a really fun one aside from all the grinding. Just make the legendary cloak unavailable at the end if it bothers people.

    MoP cloak and WoD ring quest lines should be able to be done on alts as long as you have the achievements on the account. Just because I decide to start a new character after those expansions shouldn't mean I'm not allowed to obtain the items that I have obtained just because they removed the content.

    If you weren't around for the quest then yeah, you shouldn't be able to do it.

    Then nobody new would get to experience the questline.

    Can you explain the logic in this?

    Nobody understood why they removed it in the first place. It was a stupid and pointless decision.

    Well..I don't understand the decision (nor would I ever do the quest line again) - but there is a history of removed things and we could debate until we are blue in the face if it was a "good" idea to remove them or not.

    I understand removing rewards (to encourage people to play current season/expansion), but removing content (that include Mage Tower scenarios) is really stupid and pointless.

    I personally don't really care about the MoP cloak and WoD ring quest lines, but still it makes no sense why they even removed them in the first place.

    What reward? A cloak that no longer does anything? Or in the case of WoD a ring that no longer does anything. Why does anybody care?

    Honestly though the questline isn't going to feel very epic anymore. At the time it was fine because it was spaced out over the entire expansion but now it would just feel like busywork.

    Arbitrarily removing quest lines like the MoP cloak has always been stupid regardless. It, the Garrosh heirlooms, and other 'limited time' rewards exist only because Blizzard's devs are a cynical bunch and fear of missing out is their favorite tool to keep people around. I say put the removed quest lines back in, and use the stuff like CM sets, CM weapons, Pandaria phoenixes, Mage Tower appearances, and Garrosh heirlooms as evergreen rewards for challenge content. Update the mage tower for an evergreen challenge content instead of taking a good idea and abandoning it as 'seasonal,' again to use FOMO tactics.

    FOMO and artificial scarcity in a video game are development tactics that deserve to burn. If they're worried about trivializing the rewards, reuse them for new challenge content and introduce more rewards; let players choose what they want much like the vicious saddles.

    No.
    Leave all of the unobtainable titles/items/mounts unobtainable.

    Why in the world would anyone want to go back and do completely pointless grinds for no reason? I didn't even know it got removed because why the hell would I ever try to do it again? I did it once, that was more than enough.

    Regardless, some stuff in game should be unobtainable. Just like you can't get the Hand of A'dal title anymore if you didn't get it in BC, there's nothing wrong with certain things in game being unique to the time period they were released in.

    You should be able to do the questline but you cant get the cloak from it. Happy?

    Nah you should they were easy and blizzard has given people mythic raid appearances. Stop removing brain dead content while allowing people to get the rewards from challenging content years later. It's hypocritical and just makes no sense.

    No the cloak should be obtainable that shit was braindead during mop. If the cloak doesn't come back remove mythic and elite pvp appearances after they aren't earnable anymore.

    Than do it for mythic+, mythic raid, and pvp stuff. Stop trying to time gate brainless shit.

    If we're at it, can we put all seasonal PVP Elite rewards back in as well?
    I'd love to get my hands on some set variants that I am unable to currently get.
    I don't even have the audacity to ask for it in exchange for Marks of honor (although that's what they should be worth).
    I'd try to get them while struggling as much as those who got it during some past season. (attaining that required rating).
    There's your content right there, Blizzard.

    After an expansion ended, (currently) bosses still drop elite gear from past mythic raids, for FREE, like it makes any sense this way...

    Oh yeah..mage tower. Tricky maybe? Build around artifacts and legendaries (to a degree...ofc also skill) - sure..you could now timewalking scale it...but maybe they thought it would then be too easy and belittle the achievement of the ppl who got it?

    But indeed....there was no way I could get it on as many speccs as I wanted....so I feel bad that it is removed, but I guess I can see why they did it.

    As someone who managed to get 33 Mage Tower skins, I will say that my "achievement" (I clicked buttons) is not at all diminished by your ability to get said skins. Of all those appearances I think I use maybe 7 of them.

    You sir, (or ma'am), are an exceptional snowflake... people like you are only myths. A player who finishes high end content, and doesnt need the validation of others of what you've accomplished in a video game.

    I just want the damn cloak to show the wings again when I transmog it. Like what is the point of having it as a transmog, if it doesn't carry over the cool effect?
