I still can't see why they haven't made it so running LFR drops the quest items for this (either at a reduced drop rate or only for alts on an account that has already done this quest with a main). There's nothing that skillful or effort based of trying to get past the rng of quest drops and Emerald Nightmare and Nighthold normal pugs (yes 880+ and 890+ ilvl for each of the raids respectively is totally a sensible requirement for players who only run normal :rollseyes:) plus it's the additional appearances of Keystone Master and Glory that showcase the real skill and effort that a player takes to obtain them. Also not to mention they are planning for the next artifact appearance to be only obtainable from individual player skill so that should count for something rather than trying to limit this one.
I really hope they decide to make this account wide at some point. Even if it's at the end of the expansion. I refuse to go through this long quest chain a second time.
If this were account-wide, Blizzard would successfully get me into normal mode raiding, at least for a while.However, given it's not and I want to unlock as many appearances as possible across all 12 classes before Legion is over, the idea of doing the quest chain 12 times has eroded all interest in even doing it once.
It would probably the best to get as many people as possible asking them to change it via the forums and twitter. They showed that they can listen - point was made with the elite pvp sets that won't make it life now.I think the best way would be to unlock the drops in LFR once you finished the questchain with your main character. That way you still would have the raid and mythic dungeon aspect, but it would take out some of the rng and "forcing into pugs" (because honestly, I don't want to get forced into rnd pugs with my alts just for the skin ....)

I feel like its unfair to make us unlock the first in the row in order to use the appearances of the other artifact appearances there. For some of us, a its hard to find normal raids to go on/ don't have time to raid. I've earned the other appearances, let me use them.
The problem here is that they gated 4 appearances behind one very long and tedious quest line, that I as a working man, with children, simply do not have time for. At some point in the next few months I will finish the Dungeon achievements and I already have Unleashed Monstrosities. Appearances I cannot use because I do not have time for raids, especially with that RNG factor.In the time I did have it did do 2 full clears and I have 2 essences.If Blizzard would think this through they'd switch up the requirements for the rest of the appearances, maybe put Unleashed Monstrosities first or something.
I really wish this was account bound.I main a BM Hunter....&....yeah...that gun is hideous.Would love the dragon bone sword for my Frost DK though.
Still waiting on a GM to get back to me because I couldn't loot the item from the Gul'dan chest for some reason.
The problem here is that there was a massive uproar when it was discovered it wasn't completable in LFR. Blizzard was smart and said they'd look into it to make us settle down but they really have no intention of doing anything about it, but the rage has settled, that's all they wanted. We wont get anything by just wishing it might happen.
The biggest part, namely the Glory of the Legion achievement is indeed account wide. "Only" Unleashed Monstrosities and Keystone Master have to be achieved at the alts too.
I'm hoping by the time Legion starts to draw to a close appearances will be made account wide so long as they were earned on at least one character. I feel there's no reason to make them account wide when it's still relevant content, it gives me something to do between raids, but for people who want to collect all the artifact appearances for every class it will be rather daunting. It's hard to ever actually make progress when you're constantly catching up multiple characters. I've already decided to not to get too enamored with the PvP appearances, because getting to prestige 50 a single time will probably push me to my limits, forget about doing it 12 times. But PvP rewards have never been account wide, bar a few. No reason not to hold out hope for eventual account wide unlocks for the PvE ones though, probably after the final patch, whatever it is. Especially because they'll be going away forever in the next expansion.
completely ignored this quest on my one raiding toon. (shadow priest) because the appearance didn't look much different from the base appearance you get for completing the order hall. Fast forward 4-5 months and hit 110 on my druid and dk. disappointed ill never get it on my druid or dk since those look awesome T_T
Blizzard aka WoW has no idea how to reward us. Part of my struggle with this game is all the hoops i have to jump thru while juggling umpteen quests; achievements ; scenarios; mythics; mythic+'s; raids; regular dungeons; affixes....are you getting my point. Blizzard never knows how to program to give appropriate rewards for character ilevel. In other words our accomplishments are for the most part ignored and the mess that is presented to us is the result. And yet every month most keep paying. There are so many issues surrounding the playing of WoW .. You either take it for what it is ....sadly...or find a new game with other issues.
Dear god when are they going to make this account-bound already
