The issue is they tied a expansion power feature to gold makingYou either get into the gold making game, buy tokens, or don't run leggosWhy would I farm mats then not just sell them for a token to bank game time?Blizzard wants me to spend over 2 months of game time worth of gold just to run two leggos.
Not sure the cost of legendaries on your server, but the ones I needed were 150-200k each. I need at least three to do the content I play, assuming I don't also want to upgrade Unity. So 600-800k. At 3k gold power calling, that's 6+ months. Not to mention the costs of all the other consumables I need for raid and keys, like flasks and potions.And to the comment of getting in on the gold by crafting leggos... No, I can't compete with the goblins on my servers. They are likely bots, or people with no lives, because they corner every valuable item and immediately undercut if you post.
lot of people seem to be conflating legendary effects with iLvl . do you *need* to spend your savings on twenty agility ? maybe. do you *need* to get the double effect? get it asap and build it up later when you *need* the iLvl .
Next expansion, player power better not be tied to gold making. The whales get richer, and I lose interest in a game that doesn't respect my time.
People, do not listen the Baghdad Bobs up there telling you that every thing is fine with the SL legendary system because it's not and even trying to gaslight you that you are wrong for complaining about the time and gold invested into these thrash we call leggos; these people are either trolls or give no thought that 90% of the playerbase has a real life to attend to, and can't dedicate more than 2 or 3 hrs a weekend, let alone every day.While Shadowlands as a whole is much better that Battle for Azeroth, it's still a very awful expansion with several systems that outright sap the fun out of the game, like Choreghast, the Covenants, and of course the legendary crafting. Despite what these people might tell you, people knew from the start just crafting the rank 1 leggo wasn't going to be enough, you were gonna be "encouraged" to get rank 4, either by friends, guildies, puggers, whathaveyou, which meant either invest a huge amount of time farming insane amounts of mats or invest a huge amount of time farming insane amounts of gold. Then in 9.1 Blizzard effectively kicked us in the nuts by forcing us to recraft everything again, because we would need the gear slot being used by a leggo in order to equip the shards of domination (AND ALSO, invest a lot of time farming the currency to buy the upgrades for the domination shards). Now in 9.2, all the @#! effort has been thrown into the toilet, because the domination shards are now effectively useless and worthless, and now you have to craft a 2nd one (and hopefully you dont have to recraft your 1st leggo now that you dont use domination shards), because even though you get a leggo belt, we all know either it will take a slot with better stats or you gonna get "encouraged" to have 2 leggos at rank 7, of which prices are easily between 75k-100k if you cannot craft them.People don't want to deal with this nightmare *!@# of a system. Farming mats, farming gold, wasting so much time, forcing people to engage with your content in order to deal with all that is not fun, and it doesn't matter if your content is fun because all that will make it unfun in the end and not want to bother with it anymore. It matters absolutely zero if the game is giving you lots of gold, cuz that gold in the end becomes worth less due to inflation.
I made 300k in the last few days just doing random 1 hour progenitor essentia farms. I just go to to the top right of ZM and go in a circle mining & herbing. In an hour I get 2-3 PE which on my server go for 8500-10k then sell any other mats I get usually getting another 10ish kMake sure you have the jiro genesii buff on at all times though!
I apparently missed something along the way. What’s the “Jiro buff” that helps with essentia, and how do you get it?Update: Found it: Gift of the Genesii
Still havnt been able to afford my first 291 legendary, working on it but its not easy.
Ilvl 261 umbrahide pants before the patch - 135kilvl 261 umbrahide pants after the patch - 340kThanks to the free belt, I'm now wearing two legendaries... with the same power on both. Lol. I just resent that Blizzard tied legendaries to player crafting, and thus let certain players determine the cost for legendaries throughout the expansion. Do I NEED them? No, because I don't raid. Would I LIKE them? Yes, because I enjoy obtaining more powerful gear in a steady fashion as the expansion progresses. Could I use an alt to make them myself? Sure, if I care to dump my time, energy, and savings into leveling the appropriate patterns and getting the necessary rep in ZM and... somehow I don't think I'd be saving any gold in the process.Ultimately, it would have been nice if legendaries had a set cost... better a gold sink you can predict than one affected by the open market.
