Re: [MoP] Next Legendary

said by Nick D:

...I don't want to worry that the pissant hunter takes his items and ditches...

Why does it always seem to be hunters (a.k.a. "huntards") who get used anytime someone needs an example of an asshat in WoW? Are we really THAT bad? (Don't actually answer that, just a rhetorical question. )
...
I've always thought it would be interesting for "older" legendaries that are now obsoleted by current gear (i.e. Sulfuras, Thori'dal, Shadowmourne, etc), to have some kind of mechanic in which they could be "updated" to be commensurate with current gear. It wouldn't necessarily have to be horribly complicated - imagine that when MoP releases, several of the new raid bosses/dungeon bosses have some kind of item which drops infrequently (5% chance?) and is BoP, and that if you can collect one of each item, you are entitled to bring your legendary item to the arcane reforger for an "update". I just think it's a shame that there are hundreds of legendary items sitting in bank vaults, because "JimBob's Hammer of the Saggy Lawnchair" (a green quest reward obtained by killing 12 orcs in Hellfire) completely outclasses the hammer of Ragnaros himself. Plus, it would be insanely cool to see people wearing/wielding the old legendaries in current raid/dungeon/PvP content. My two cents.
...
PS (to ward off flames of fury) - I'm not suggesting this as a way to OBTAIN a legendary item - only as a way for someone to "update" a legendary item that they have already obtained in the normal fashion. Obviously it would need some careful thought if it were to be implemented.

I think the easiest way to handle that would be to let people TMOG their current gear to previous legendaries. You still have to have the item to TMOG it.

the most impressive looking weapon that i have seen, is that archy sword, that the name escapes me right now cause im old i guess, but the first time i saw one was on a tauren warrior and it just looked huge, like it could cleave a city bus in half.

zin rok is that right?

That would be better than nothing, I suppose. I'm definitely NOT one of those who is in to transmogging; to me, it would seem much cooler to ACTUALLY be wielding Thori'dal when tackling MoP raid bosses, than to be wielding a "Pandaren Bow of Fuzzy Tickles" which I had transmogged to look like the real thing. (And, not like I actually have Thori'dal sitting in my bank, it's just the example I chose, since my main is a hunter.)

/agreed.

The other option would be let it upgrade itself as you level ala BOAs.

The only problem is when you cap, there is more gear at that level that would outclass it, eg: if you hit 90 and iLevel blue gear at the time was iLevel 460 and your Thunderfury (Did some one say Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker?) became iLevel 460, what would happen by the time patch 5.4 comes out and gear is iLevel 520.....

that's fine. I think older legedaries should be novelties... rarities. I'd prefer the BoA model over TMOG. If they leveled up like BoAs, then they should stop at the first tier of raiding in a new expansion. Otherwise, why work hard to create new wpn art? The goal here, I think, is to let people enjoy their legendary weapon for as long as they play the game. Animations, procs, all of it... But current raiders should have something new to look forward to as well. New skins, new procs, new stats. I wouldn't want the old ones to be so good that their weilders never want any new gear. That would be bad for raiding overall.
