4.3 Legendary(Confirmed)

Unread post by Kurenio » Tue Jul 12, 2011 8:57 pm

The New info

The Legendary is a dagger.
Link to the article


==============================================================

EDIT NOTE: It would seem that the interview that this was from was taken down. It is possible that his was an old interview which never should have been posted.
J. Allen Brack, Lead Producer of World of Warcraft: There's one more piece which is an announcement that we're releasing a rogue legendary weapon. Specific for rogues, so it will be a dagger. There will be some sort of quest, traditionally we've done these quests that players need to participate in order to create the legendary weapon in this case we'll be focusing on rogues that will try to make that happen.

The Escapist: Do you know what it's called yet?

Brack: We do not?

The Escapist: How does it fit into the lore?

Brack: We haven't decided on the name and how it's going to work, we just know that we really want a legendary weapon to come out of this tier and we really want it to be a rogue dagger. That's really all we know at this point. As time goes on we get a lot more lore, a lot more story, an "in" to the creation of all the legendary weapons. We really did a lot with the legendary axe that you got out of Lich King and then we've had other legendaries with the Cataclysm tiers that have.

===================================================================================

First I would like to say there isn't much information on this legendary. When more Information becomes available I will update this thread, but for now its pure speculation on the little information blizzard has given us.

This is Currently the only Information we have about the 4.3 legendary.
Q: Will we see a tanking Legendary sometime soon? – Pedoso (NA)

A: The tanking community both loves and hates when this question comes up, but it received a lot of votes, so we’ll answer it. The answer is not soon, but probably eventually. The problem with tanking legendaries, of course, is that the shield-users and non-shield-users tank with different weapons. That’s not a deal breaker, but it is a consideration. We could allow the legendary to be transformed from a one-hander to two-hander or we could just design an item for a more narrow audience (such as a shield). The 4.2 legendary has fairly wide appeal, and the 4.3 legendary will have much more narrow appeal. We don’t want to fall into the trap of making legendaries too formulaic.
Now due to past legendaries and this statement I have narrowed down what legendary it would be. It is a 50% chance that it is a hunter weapon.

List of what it can't possibly be and why.
1. No 2H Strength weapon due to Shadowmourne in wrath.
2. No healing weapon due to Val'nyr in wrath.
3. No tank weapon due to blizzard stating that it is not.
4. No caster dps weapon due to them just getting one

List of what it might be but it completely unlikely.
1. A 1H Strength (weapon this is unlikely due to warriors and death knight just getting shadowmourne).

List of what it most likely will be.
1. A rogue dagger (Unlikely due to them having warglaives, the QQ that would ensue, and it seems a little to narrow)
2. A rogue/enhance shammy axe/mace
3. A feral druid/hunter polearm (won't be a staff due to a staff legendary just came out).
4. A hunter ranged weapon (see rogue dagger but replace warglaives with our legendary bow).

Now 2 and 3 are the most possible in my mind as they would be the best fit for the information we have been given. Both enhance shaman and feral druid have been long due to have a legendary.

Now.... /discuss

if it is a hunter legendary please make it another bow. hardly any hunters got the last 1 due to rogues and warriors ninjaing it. and bows always have the nicer models. and this time let it be like shadowmourne. a class only quest. not some drop that everyone can ninja.

If it was a hunter range weapon it would most likely be a bow or crossbow. This is due to the art design team preferring them to guns.

(Emphasis mine.)

Do we have any actual word on this or is that just wild speculation? :/ I prefer bows personally, but Dwarves did get the short end of the stick recently with a lack of gun upgrades. A gun would be quite fair, really.

Well the qoute at the top is word that we are getting a legendary and that it is not a tanking legendary. The rest is just me speculation on what it will be due to what we have. The outcome of that is 5 possibilities 3 of which are extremely unlikely, but I believe blizzard said the reason the crossbow that drop from FL was changed to that due to the art design team preferring to design bows and crossbows. In all honesty they should just change the dwarf racial to be 1% crit with a ranged weapon and change bow/crossbow/gun to just "Ranged" so it would be Ranged/Thrown/Wand/Relic in that slot.

Roc'Delar 2.0. I like this idea.

Mainly because there's a small part of me that's still bitter that I could never get 1.0 because by the time I finally beat Onyxia on Arit, they'd had taken everything out. I was livid.

But if it were bows/crossbows then the trolls would get the benifit, would they not?

I honestly have no idea what the troll racial is, but it stands that the art development team would rather develop a bow/crossbow then a gun. Thats why FL trash drops of crossbow now instead of the gun that it originally was.

If Im right, their racial is +1% crit with bows and crossbows, so making it another bow or crossbow would once again benifit the Trolls...so thats why I went crazy capsing about guns...lets the Dwarves get the love with a Gun.
As long as its a hunter weapon in general, I'm happy. If its a gun, Im CAPSING ALL DAY LONG!!!!

And bows only benefit one race....

It's completely reasonable that we be given a choice, unless those two racial buffs get changed to something else. Some people like guns, others don't.

Besides, the art department has come up with some pretty fantastic looking guns before. :)

Then that just means they'll have to develop a bow AND a gun, and we get to choose.

Which gives me an idea, either during the quest line or at the start, you can choose to have a different race help you, like 2 choices for each faction? dwarves and Night elves for alliance and Trolls and Goblins for horde. Dwarves and goblins get you the gun, and night elves and Trolls get you the bow/crossbow...No? Meh, worth saying anyways...

Yea, like that kick ass gun from Ulduar that looks like a steam engine or the 5 barreled gun from one of the auchindoun dungeons.

I actually quite like this idea. Seems very lore-correct, and would make you wonder what you missed for the other half of the story. Thus, I'd just have to run 2 Hunters through it! xD

Yea! depending on what race would make what you do during different, but at the same time still rather the same. The only major differences would be from Dwarf to night elf, or goblin to troll, while goblin and dwarf, and night elf and troll would only have minor differences due to faction!

EDIT: Wait...wait......maby they would all be mostly different, Dwarves are quite different in gun making then goblins would be, unless they both involve gnomes in there making, ask for the trolls and Night elves, i have no clue. Now i need to think this through, or not....giving me a headache :(

Trolls do not receive any bonus from crossbows, only the regular type of bow works with their racial. There currently is no race that gets any manner of bonus from wielding crossbows.

Just give it a right-click effect so it turns from a gun to a bow to a crossbow and back again. Make it do the Transformer transformation sound when used. Bam. Best epic ever.
