Opinions on what the legendary will be for 4.3?Personally, I think it'll be an agility axe or mace, for rogues and enhacement shaman, maybe with a str version for dks and warrs

Nope! I'm definitely hoping its a wand!!!! :p Though I guess an agi axe would be cool!

It'll be a legendary motorcycle. That flies.

Should be a bow or gun for hunters. Yeah. Actually I was having a nice discussion with some guildies yesterday. I suggested hunters should have a class ability to craft a bow. Blizzard would never allow it to be anything more than Blue quality and soulbound. But I can live with that. Mages should be able to do the same with a wand.

Hunters had a level 60 class quest for a bow/stave combo. I believe it still works, even in cata.I don't see an agility axe happening, but maybe a mace. No axe because then hunters might be tempted to use it, and that would be a wasted since it's little more than a stat stick then. Shame not to actually see the thing in a fight, you know? Anyway, they've got the bow from sunwell, in the same way tanks have thunderfury, and boomkin have MC hand of rag.Honestly I'd rather more quel'delar style stuff than another legendary. Quel was legendary in lore terms, and a big achivement for those of us who can't raid, and I don't see a reason it can't be strong enough to be/equal BiS for normal modes at least.

Blizzard have stated that they want to do a tanking legendary. Obviously there's very little overlap between the tanking classes in terms of equippable items and stat priorities, so it remains to be seen what they are going to do about it.I would love an item that transforms bears into Deathwing-inspired alternate models, a la Fandral's Flamescythe. Could you imagine a druid turning into a smouldering, elementium-plated bear?

@Calaana; if you mean the old lvl60 epic class quest that rewarded an epic bow, it has been removed in Cataclysm. Much the pity; Rhok'delar is an awesome bow, and the quest chain was definetly worth doing. Two of my hunters have the bow and quiver (now bag). Nowadays the closest you can get to the feel of that quest is going after the taming challenges at Hyjal.There might be something around lvl50 now, I hear there's a few class quests that got added to the game.

@noyouBlizzard has already let mages make their own wands back when you could with enchanting.Plus hunters have been able to make their own bows for awhile with engineering.Engineers have already been making blue and purple quality bows and guns, and the accessories that go with them for some time.
@kalaa, i think you mean kittys. In either case, its not true. No guild would even take a feral to mc in the first place, much less give them a legendary that could be so much better with other classes. So far, ferals are the only spec (and arguably enh shaman) to not have a legendary designed for us. What im thinking is an agility 2 mace that has a one time use effect to turn it into two agility 1h maces. That way, it would work for 3 classes

A tanking legendary weapon would be awesome. I'd imagine it'd have options though, similar to Quel'delar, to appease all tanking classes. One handed sword for warriors/pallies. Two handed axe for death knights. Polearm for druids.

Tank legendary-- at the end you get a staff, a sword and shield, a mace and shield, or a massive runed sword, depending on class. :)
I'd love to see an agi dagger but as it'd only really be used for one class, I doubt it'll ever happen...

Pretty sure Blizz has said they won't make a tanking legendary because it would be hard to balance.
9-11-2011 @ 1:12PM
@ NoyouOr or, give us uncommonly good looking masters of rang death a class ability to change our weapons from guns to bows (Xbows too I guess, but who wants to use those anyway?) transmorging is bringing that to us, but were not going to be able to get our racial bonuses out of it.
9-11-2011 @ 1:53PM
I got it, it'll be a two handed mace with tanking stats on it. The flavor text will be "Two-Handed is merely a suggestion," allowing Paladins and Warriors to use it in one hand.
9-11-2011 @ 2:36PM
This is probably a stupid question on my part, but is there any reason to think Blizz will make another legendary for 4.3 instead of just the one available for 4.2?With all the comments, I'm wondering if I missed something important that everyone else is aware of.
9-11-2011 @ 2:57PM
"is there any reason to think Blizz will make another legendary for 4.3 instead of just the one available for 4.2?"Somewhere along the way, when blizzard announced the legendary staff for 4.2, they said there would be one more legendary this expansion.I cba to go find the post on it though, but it's out there in the wild. It hasn't been datamined or anything yet, so what it is, or who it's for, is completely a mystery at this point.

"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."It's from the Tanking Q&A, though, which contained nothing important.
9-11-2011 @ 3:01PM
Im thinking it'll be a polearm/agi staff, for use by hunters and ferals. Personally, im hoping for the scythe of elune, with an effect to turn bear/cat druids into spirit wolves. I can see it now...Equip: Your melee/ranged attacks have a chance to summon a wolf spirit to aid you in battle for 15 sec. Stacks up to 5 times.brb, gotta change my pants.

@PyromelterThanks. The way everyone was talking I thought I must have either not seen the news or forgotten it. Your comment jogged my memory.
