Yeh this lego is trash. Idk what Ion & co is smoking, but I want some of it.
Most of the legendaries they've created are literally trash in comparison to what we already have access to. It's like wasting time in design that's never gonna be competitive enough for players to actually pick it.
It honestly feels like a trap legendary to sucker those that don't know what leggos to pick to use. Seems like a waste of soul ash (that you still can't refund by trashing the item). I wonder if other classes are seeing their covenant specific leggos being just as useless and if so...what was the point in wasting resources in this?
they are obviously going to make available the ability to wear a covenant and class leggo. I don't know why they just don't come out and say so. anyone with a brain cell can work that out.
Nerf the only viable Mage spec in raids and keep buffing Warlocks over and over until we are all Warlock players :)
Just have a look at rogue legs Mage at least has some cool effects
I don't even take this as a power in torghast
Covenant Legendaries are probably worse than the spec specific ones by default, since they can be used by all 3 specs (yes, there are some of the baseline ones that already do this, but still).Another thing I was thinking is that if we ever come to wear 2 legendaries, the second one could only be a covenant specific one?
So far non of the new legendries for any of the classes seem useable....so why make new legendries! Looks like it's just wasted effort.
This is why people mock the high end players - can't think of any reason for these to exist? For real, are you that utterly blind to the players who don't exclusively care about competitive content?I'm going to be making these on most of my alts, because I don't play them at a high level and I don't need them to be competitive, but I do enjoy mucking around with their offspecs and I don't particularly want to spend 15k soul ash to make 3 different legendaries to do that.These legendaries let me craft one legendary for the character that will work decently for all 3 specs. They tried to do this with the generic legendaries, but they had to be tuned so weak to avoid them being OP on the 1-2 specs that could use them well that they ended up useless on everyone.
This covenant legendary thing is another way the dev team put themselves in a corner and shows how little they actually understand about their own game. On one side, if you create new legendaries, you wanna make them strong enough to be relevant when the content releases, otherwise it's pretty pointless to release them to begin with. On the other hand, you have covenant balance within classes that you don't want to upset too much. For example, you don't wanna have an insane NF legendary on mage, since NF is already pretty much OP and doing so would polarize the playerbase and force them even more into a clear-cut best covenant scenario. Long story short, there is no way that covenant-specific legendaries will ever work. Either they will be undertuned and therefore irrelevant, or they will be BIS and force people to choose the covenant they are associated with. What are the devs even thinking.... doesnt take a degree in game design to understand that this is a bad idea...
They should create covenant specific legendaries to allow a spec to be able to compete with the same spec on a different and more favorable covenant for certain situations. In this example allow ST frost mage to be able to compete with say a Venthyr frost mage.
