...That's why they should just add a legendary shop at this stage.


No we dont need a legendaries shop that isntantly lets you buy the best gear of the game. We need legendaries to become legendary again.
Lower droprates for them or like WoD a long questline to get them. Also not so many different kinds of legendaries.

And most importantly make them so some speccs do not require them to become a valid specc for their role.

But honestly a legendary shop just defeats the purpose of gearing up for anything and would make raiding or high end pvp pretty irrellevant to do

but as theyre now legendaries a shop wouldnt even make them much less legendary, and questline like mop/wod or shadowmourne was best way for legendary

So what you're saying is half-a weeks of IRL work time is spent on gaming, purely for Legendary.

You do realise that a very few folks have the luxury for this? :)

This is the issue, stop shoving it down peoples throats that its "Easy".
It is - if you have A LOT of time.


People who spend more time in game get more rewards, it's worked this way since 2004.
TL:DR:

Do EVERYTHING.
Do Repetetive content
Do "old" content
Spend 20 hours a week (A 2nd job, therefor)

If you have the ability to do the above; GZ on legendary.
Otherwise, if you have a life outside of WoW, or an ACTUAL 2nd job, maybe also a family on top of that, nope...!

I've been a hardcore raider even in Vanilla, I if anyone knows how the game has worked, and it has never been this stupid and casino like.

Gambling is an addiction, one you're currently defending.

There is nothing wrong about people getting more rewards for more time spent. The problem is that we don't have a guarantee that we'll get anything for that time. Make it grind - fine. Don't make it rng on top of grind. That's the most awful game design, implemented only by asian f2p games.
The point I wanted to make with this post was to create awareness to the fact that the more time you spend getting legendaries, the faster you'll get them. I see a lot of people who just don't think it's possible to increase your chances of getting one, while it totally is.

Of course if you don't have enough time or motivation to use these methods, you're going to make progress slower. I just don't want people who have enough time to be scared of gearing their alts, in fears of it taking a year to obtain the 12 droppable legendaries.

What you do on your free time is your own choice, I just wanted to make it clear that by working towards getting legendaries you can have excellent results regardless of your luck.

Lol @ 20 hours. World tour takes 2 hours, max. m0 clear takes 90-120 mins, max. Emissary each day costs nothing. Do the 3 invasions that are up when you log in, takes 10 mins at most.

How is it a gamble? Gambling requires you to actually stake something.

verb
gerund or present participle: gambling
1. play games of chance for money; bet.
"he gambles on football"

2. take risky action in the hope of a desired result.

You basically DO have a guarantee though. Like, you do everything I listed, you get one a week. I don't know how to make it simpler for you.
You're still neglecting the fact tho:
People who don't have that much time CANT do -ANYTHING- to affect getting legendaries that can be -necessary- to have to perform well with X class.

The issue most of us have is getting the correct legendaries - and them being so stupidly-necessary.
The ones I have are game changing for me as a feral, for an example.

The moment I got the correct ones, I increased my DPS by 200k+, with 1 legendary alone.

It's ridiculous.
So please do re-write the guide to be less... biased.

"How to increase chance on getting a legendary:

    1: Have a lot of time.
    2: Do Mythics
    3: Do all raids on all difficulties
    4: Do All Emissarys


Doing Mythics will take you < Insert time > of time.
Doing all raids will take you < insert time > of time.

So estimated;
X amount of time is required to maximise your ability to get legendaries.
It still won't guarantee you getting the -right- legendaries.

Good luck in the casino.
"

Do fill in the X and the < > areas with the time you spend, and the research you've done.
THIS will help people.
What you've written is frankly condesending, cause I am quite sure majority of people asking are asking for a CHOICE of legendary to drop, less RNG and more Grind --> Reward.
Rather than Grind --> Possibly Crap, Possibly Reward ---> Grind again.

Thank you! :)
You basically DON'T have a guarantee though. Like, you do everything I listed, you get a chance to get one a week. I don't know how to make it simpler for you.


Fixed that for you.

its it 100% you do this and youl have a legendary evry time? no? then its not guaranteed.
Condesending babble.


Gambling:
You're putting money and Time at stake.
Money = Game time
Game time = Spent
Spent = Reward / No Reward based on RNG

-
It takes much longer than that to do ALL LFR + Normal + Heroic raids.
Claiming you can do it in 2 hours is... beyond improbable.
You'd need to have a full team of friends to que with, and a heckload of luck on finding groups.
LFR alone takes a truckload of time to join.

-
Basically have a guarantee =/= Actual guarantee
You're using Time to "Guarantee" -A- legendary drop, not THE legendary to drop.
Your time may not be as valuable for you as it is for others, not everyone has the insane amount that is necessary to execute the things you're trailing here and then brushing it off as if it's "Easy".
It really isn't that simple.

I have a hell-load of time, I admit I could possibly have unlocked majority of the legendaries by now on my main, and probably on most of every other class too.
I've not done it because I find the repetition to be so utterly stupid, and the time needed to do said repetetive content, stupid as well.
This is personal opinion, others may find it fun, but I haven't heard -many- who find it fun when the reward you seek isn't guaranteed for the extreme grind you put in.

A legendary shop is necessary, not one you just walts up to and buy from for nothing...
But a TOKEN system, you -GRIND- up a heckload of tokens, and then you can buy the legendary you deem necessary.

You are protecting gambling addictions, and making excuses for it, cause you're so far down the rabbit hole it's not plausible that others simply aren't interested in this insane RNG-fest and the amount of time you have to invest for a CHANCE of something.

If I was GUARANTEED to get my BiS legendary for spending 20h a week this week on a GAME: I would have a goal that is plausible if I have the time possible to spend.

You're basically insulting people for wanting a game rather than a gamble....
It's getting ridiculous.
Especially since gambling isn't allowed for below 18 year olds for a very important reason;
It's addicting, and it makes you blind among many other negative things.

So....do content to get Legendaries

One sentence vs many sentences.


This is all I need to read, not your essay of a thread.

The game has always been addictive. Loot has always been RNG, and people has grinded Raids and mobs in order to get the gear or the mount they're lacking.
This is not insulting either.

If you don't have time, well bad for you. Find another hobby then. It was even worse back in Vanilla. I had friends who played 24/7, which i couln't, and I was barely even able to play with them because they joined top end guilds.

I do however agree that the RNG system is bad, since some legendaries are BiS. But I don't see a problem with having higher chances of getting drop with doing more content.

And btw, it doesn't really take that much time to clear LFR tbh. You queue up while you're doing daily emissary, and once one pop you can do them back to back within a few hours.

Yeah, maybe next expansion.

Defeats what purpose?, relying on the RNG chance to get your BiS, otherwise knowing you won't ever be able to perform at 100% of your class as the legendary never dropped?

You can still only use 2 legendaries?

01/10/2017 23:01Posted by Oldmangeorge
And most importantly make them so some speccs do not require them to become a valid specc for their role.
That will never happen in legion as it's already far into legion.

Maybe if you actually raided, you'd understand what performance that legendaries affects people.

Everyone I know plays the game and gets at least one a week, angry people on forum say "i play LOADS and NEVER get ANYTHING". Hmm who am I likely to believe.

PS. People can check your armory and instantly know you barely play the game so you have zero argument.
Do everything in one week.
Get "rewarded" with trash legendary.

Oh thats too bad, just.. do it all again :3

Beautiful system
The legenda rng is as bulls hit as the rest and tweaked by blizzard to drop or not in a period of time.

When they released this new patch 7.3.0 in the week with boss invasion everyone was guaranteed a drop and that was good. Same it was once with the legendary I remember that most of the people got them from+ chest after they complain about the rng idr when exactly I think it was around 7.2.0.

Also now for ex my rng to to wb has come back to gold and a after that first wb invasion.

So yes that's what makes me think that how mush you farm if they don't want to you won't get it. I am not saying that playing and trying won't help but you have to take in consideration that fact mentioned above.

It's been months since got a legendary.
If you want a legendary. Do almost any end game content. Think we get it ;)

Few people you might know is not a proof of a guaranteed legendary.
Even with bad luck protection its still hard RNG. A guaranteed would require 100% which you cannot achieve, only perhaps over a period of many months(if not a year), but you cannot work around it with any mathematical calculations since don't know any numbers to begin with.
It's foolish to claim it being ''impossible'' that people don't get a legendary by doing all in the list, you cannot get to 100% in a week, so its more than possible, so there will be people who don't get a leggo in a month.

I did it all(except for norm, hc and mythic raids as they are far beyond me) on couple of chars, got nothing in 3,5 weeks and just left to do what i like to do - leveling new chars.

I took a break then came back and just did quest content the first week. In that week I got 2 legendary's.. the belt from a small Argus invasion portal boss, which is poor for me, and my much needed band aid bracers from one of those tiny legionfall island chests.. it was one I decided to swoop down and collect as I was there for an ap wq..

I think rng is rng.
