I don't care if they do or don't put a legendary in the game, those gems alone make the quest worth doing!
For everybody who is confused about these "legendary" items I'm here to enlighten you. First of all there's no such thing as a legendary this patch but there's something you could call legendary gem, wich is the 500+ stat you found in the post.These legendary gems can only be placed in a gem slot called Hydraulic socket and these sockets are only present on sha-touched weapons wich can be obtained through all three sub-tiers of the raid Mogu-Shan Vaults. In other words, yes people who only do LFR will also be able to use these "legendaries" but on a weapon with a minor ilvl downscale.
mind you "this patch". These weapons will be upgradeable into better epics (and eventually into a legendary form). Wrathion will give us an item to remove the legendary gem.
That's an interesting way to go with it; legendary gems instead of legendary weapons.One good thing is that all classes can obtain it and benefit from it :D
The items color probably changes after the gem is inserted. Thats just my guess
everything looks horrible and worse - too much colors, really ALIEN shapes, most of those items look like if they were carved from corals.. even TBC items looked less outlandish than these... WHAT THE HECK happened to "simple" weapon concept like bamboo staves? :S Seriously, I like the wooden staff in the MoP intro WAY better than these...things..2h axe is so short it looks like WotLK 1handers and badly clips through female blood elf's leg (literally cuts it in half), I really hope they'll stretch it a little. Or we will just stay at Gorehowl model anyway, since the weapons themselves are epic, only gems are legendary, I guess they'll be transmoggable..I'm really disappointed that they still employ the same team of incredibly bad designers. I mean, no sane mind would create such stupidities. I expected great things of chinese culture, but I see these jerks screwed it again. Cmon, some claw of 2 years dead bird as fist weapon instead of cloth bandage around wrist? Coral plasma gun instead of arbalest? Dragon bones instead of sword? Piece of shell or coral instead of dagger? These guys want to make Blizzard fall, and Blizzard doesn't care about it.the ONLY things I like about MoP so far are rogue and warrior challenge sets and paladin tier 14... Sigh, I will probably buy MoP just so I won't waste Annual Pass completely (like I wasted last 3 months).
Everyone here is really jumping the gun here. As lots of people have said before, this is the First step in the chain, and we have no idea what the next step looks like or even the final model. each weapon looks pretty decent and any bugs with them are going to be fixed, that just isn't a priority at the moment. Just try to be a little patient before screaming bloody murder, read some of the previous posts before posting, and have some faith, yeah?
Can somebody enlighten me as to why the 1h SP sword has the crit / haste combo, but the SP mace was changed from that combination to crit / spirit?I understand its to cope for healers, but as a boomer who, unless it has been changed in MoP, cannot use the sword that is far more beneficial. There is also a lack of a SP dagger with a combination of stats that would be more than appealing to those of us who already find the hit cap with ease, assuming it does remain as easy to achieve as it always has been.
I am confused.Reading this quest line and looking at the images, it appears anyone and everyone can get these weapons/gems.Does not seem very legendary to me just seems like another quest line to gain an item.I thought legendaries were supposed to be awesome amazing and hard to get weapons so that only a few people go them not the entire realm including those in LFR
Reading this quest line and looking at the images, it appears anyone and everyone can get these weapons/gems.Does not seem very legendary to me just seems like another quest line to gain an item.First part of a quest line; still a lot more to go.I thought legendaries were supposed to be awesome amazing and hard to get weapons so that only a few people go them not the entire realm including those in LFROnly in LFR for Beta purposes, doubt it will still be there when it goes live.
That 2h axe reminds me a LOT of Soul Edge from Soul Calibur....
I don't think he's so much trying to profit, as he is trying to bring the Alliance and Horde together. However, it does seem that he knows more than he is letting on... My guess? Next expansion we will level to 100 and be able to choose a faction, I believe we will finally see Me'dan and have to fight Sargeras.
By the looks of it, the first step should be easy enough for everyone to complete.
correct me if im wrong but arent legendary items orange? not purple?...dont seem very legendary to me...More like a chain to get a decent wep!But remember - the prior "Legendary" weapons started out as Epic and had to be empowered to Legendary status (Toss in Yog's mouth, Kill Lich King, Rag's heart). I suspect the Sha-Touched is the same "step" on a path - Maybe to "Sha-Empowered" Legendary - but it starts with those awesome gems.

The two hander is an axe? AGAIN?WTF blizz. WTF.
