That last paragraph is the part that rankles me the most. Blizzard has said that class quests are a questionable use of resources because only a small portion of the playerbase will see that content. That's a terrible argument given the effort that goes into legendary questlines. Anybody can roll up a new class to see that class's unique quests. Very few players will ever have the chance to see a legendary weapon's questline, even after that content is outdated.

Here's to hoping that the legendary quest line for the "Fangs" was a sneak attack at the "we can't afford to develop any quests for only one class" mentality. After all, if the quest team goes back to the whoever designs their schedules and gantt charts and says "look at how many people de-shelved their rogues for weapons that will be obsolete in 6 months", perhaps they'll get permission to do some more class-specific quests.

I will eternally be amazed at how even tho they are number one Blizz can be so stupid at times. Class quests and simply updating the character creation screen with more options and keeping all character races withthe same number of textures/polygons, THIS is a questionable use of resources???Hmmm Blizz so you would rather pile on tons of time for raids, make a few new highly detailed ENEMY models to fight that a small perccentage of your over 10 million player base will ever see because they do not like raiding. Then when you do haul it out all the hard core whiny raiders cry because they speed through it like a kid who eats all his halloween candy in one night and wonders why he is sick the next morning? Oh so THAT is a GOOD use of your resources eh?They seem to have to be beat over the head with this stuff, like finaly allowing transmof to happen. Having your character unique and personal is the reason we play this. Giving us pathetic choices and not getting off their asses to at least give all models texture/ply graphic equality is rather lame. Hell the feamle worgen have ONE face to choose from and ONE choce of hair colour......WHAT?????Had to rant but after seeing what Guild Wars 2 is offering and even on their "beast" races to not give females a ridiculous big breasts look that every wow race has because it does not fit the logic (Tauren females being minotaur people do not need big human bosoms to look "female" and will not even start on the worgen. Just look at the male/females of the Charr race in GW2 to see what we could have had...)I wish I could post something that these Blues will actually see, seems they need a reality check. I love what mists is bringing but if they do nothing to the character creation screen and drag their arse on updating the models....

I completely agree with the comments about the legendary questlines - I came in here to post about this very thing.Does anyone who's not an owner of a legendary from 4.2 actually know who Tarecgosa is, or why Kalecgos, the blue dragonflight etc are here? Who that tree was, or why there's a dead dragon who lives in a staff??Similarly, do any non-rogues know where these fancy daggers are from?If rogue representation is so low then giving them an exclusive legendary questline is both contradictory and frustrating. The average raid was all but guaranteed to have an eligible caster for Tarecgosa. Not everyone's running around with a rogue in their raid.And as far as exclusivity goes, these rogue quests are the worst. I love stories, and I feel like I'm missing out on a significant chunk of what's supposed to be on offer.

OUfan it is not even close to that simple. Roll a rogue, now get it raid geared, now be good enough at being a rogue that a raid team will want you, now find a raid team that doesn't have a rogue who is already getting the daggers, now hope that raid team is good enough to work with you through the questline.Oh and on top of that make sure that none of the scheduling of that conflicts with your life or your main.Yeah, all you need to do to see that qust in game is "roll a rogue"

The quest chain and daggers aren't going anywhere, so there's no reason to break your neck getting to 85 and raid geared. Take your time leveling, see some content you missed on other characters. Wait til level 90 and pug the raid portions of the quest chain in MoP greens and dungeon blues. People still run just about every raid for mounts, achievements and Transmog gear so you shouldn't have any problems finding people to run it with and, at that point, should be able to 5-8 man most 10m fights. If it's the story you're interested in and not the ZOMGDAGGERS, then you won't be missing anything by waiting other than the (judging by our rogue's nerd raging in vent as she worked on the Karazhan portion of her quest chain) brutal difficulty. I plan to farm up another Dragonwrath on my Druid, Shaman, Priest and Mage (yes, 4 more times - I have an Orange Text fetish) at some point just because the Nexus event was so much fun. I'm going to wait until the content is ridiculously trivial though.

Revynn:I guess you could use that exact same logic with regards to the nerfs being made to raiding content and the like. "Just wait until it's severely outdated, and then it'll become marginally realistic to experience!"Come on now. That's just not solid thinking at all.
