I wish the concept of a legendary was more fluid. Something along the lines of an item you craft to enhance an existing piece of gear, much like an armor kit. Perhaps even the potential to 'de-socket' the legendary and reapply it to another piece as needed. My primary legendary is my neck piece and I'm likely to craft my secondary as a belt. But watch my vault gear be a neck this week and a belt the next :P
Does anyone know if the memory is class-specific, or can I buy the Memory of Unity on my Mage, then craft a Unity legendary for my Hunter who hasn't gone through Zereth Mortis?
it's account wide
Here i was hoping we would see how much stats a 291 piece would have.I know rings have 160+160 secondary stats, but what about the other items ?
The Memory of Unity is unlocked in your Legendary "spellbook" and is account wide after you buy it. If you craft a legendary using it you cannot move that item around, you'd have to make a new one. Wasn't quite sure which you were asking about so hopefully that clears it up for you!
There is of course a fourth major thing to consider and that is gold cost. Especially if you are playing multiple classes, specs and content types, the cost of base items will add up. Depending on your realm, you could get two or three cloaks for the cost of one helm, so stat budget per gold is worth looking at if you don't want to spend millions on a stupid system that will be gone next patch.
Why is neck bad, as in not mentioned ? Comes with huge stats at 291 + gem slot. Of course no primary but then it doesn’t block a tier piece either.
Yeah sure jailer’s neck, m+ people like me will resort to wowhead to see it
So what about people who are not raiding and just doing M+? For now we'll have to hope to get lucky to get tier pieces from the vault. And eventually be able to synthesize tier pieces on any slot, so I'm wondering how much sense it'd make to keep legendaries off the regular tier piece slots. Or can't you get a tier piece from the catalyst in any slot? The guide at https://www.wowhead.com/guides/creation-catalyst-crafting-tier-sets-shadowlands-patch-92 implies that it's possible, but the comments in the guide say it's not.
