Improvements to the Legendary system are coming in 7.2 along with three new world bosses.

Upcoming Legendary System Tweaks

Many players are benched because of RNG surrounding Legendary items in Legion. Blizzard is trying to ameliorate these issues with improvements coming to the Legendary system in 7.2. We'll have to wait a few weeks as next week, content pushed will focus on quests and itemization comes later on.

I have thoroughly enjoyed most aspects of legion. I consider myself a top tier raider, however im not able to play at a high level because of the rng on top of rng legendary system. Ive been benched in 2 guilds because of it and ended up taking a break for 3 weeks due to frustration. Many others and myself included have had the displeasure of receiving 3 utility legendary in a row. This has to be the most terrible experience, I've had in all the years I've played wow (since early vanilla).

Blizzard, id really like to stress this, ill say it again. I cant begin to explain to you how terrible it feels to players, who have received 3 non dps increase legendary in a row. How can this amount of in-game tragedy be allowed? It is disgusting. You have created an incredible expansion, don't you have any pride? Why hasn't something, anything been done about this? Please, respond! Anything!

There are a fair number of additions/tweaks in 7.2 to the legendary system. They've not been introduced on PTR yet but they are coming and this is something we will be actively seeking feedback on. Some of the issues that you highlight are things that we are hoping to ameliorate with these changes.

Please have patience with us as we roll out new quest/feature content on PTR next week and then move into rolling out the item/reward/systems changes. It is a bit of staged progressive rollout to focus testing and feedback but there are additional changes coming. 

Please continue to supply feedback throughout this process though. :)

New World Bosses

Three world bosses have been added in 7.2. No loot assigned yet and the Dungeon Journal entries are also incomplete at this time.

I can't help but feel Brutallus is a play off the starcraft unit Brutalisk. The pitlord model is already very large with four legs and such. However, even his arms have the blades like a brutalisks scythe arm thingies. My below picture (300 hours in photoshop) gives a crude parallel. Really should have found  a pitlord from the side but its just for a quick image to sorta support what i'm saying. Blizz likes to give nods to other things and sometimes themselves. So, I like that WoW has a starcrafty world boss :)

Edit: Added a little picture of Mag to showcase body similarities. Four Legs, two arms, and facial tusks. But then brutallus has his Kargath closeplay arms that really make him appear brutalisk inspired.

P.S. Zerg unit shown is in fact ultralisk but close enough :)

If anything, it is the other way around. Brutallis has been in the game since Sunwell.

ha omg you are right, I completely forgot about that fight. He's not new he's just brought back for more fun. Seems almost appropriate considering the 7.2 content was compared by devs to be similar to the isle in BC. Excellent catch :D

OP

There are a fair number of additions/tweaks in 7.2 to the legendary system. They've not been introduced on PTR yet but they are coming and this is something we will be actively seeking feedback on. Some of the issues that you highlight are things that we are hoping to ameliorate with these changes.

This legendary system is... for lack of a better term, a strange duck.  It allows everyone a chance at something, and at times seems to crush the already weak, and super-power the already top-end players.  I suppose its the very definition of RNG. 

Our guild is no different.  Some of our best players get the best legendaries, and while I wouldn't say I'm the best, I'm far from the bottom of the list.  I would currently be sitting at 3 'utility' legendaries, if not for their total re-facing the Chain of Thrayn. 

Sitting in like #8 server-rated guild, it doesn't affect me as much.  I can see easily how it could affect a hardcore progression raider. And painfully so.

At the very least, it is an interesting aspect of this expansion.  Not done terribly.  Not done perfect.  But it sure makes for one heck of a conversation piece...

Blizzard tries to come up with a new way to remove the grind behind legendaries and people still complain.

They have no intention of making them all DPS increases. The players are the ones adding that framework to them.

Just play the game and if you get one then great and if you don't get one then no harm done. It's no different than the RNG surrounding any other piece of gear.

      Method are the first guild in the world to earn the Hall of Fame: G'huun (Horde) achievement. Blizzard clarified how it works and who will be able to use the Famed Slayer title.
      Hall of Fame Achievements
      Battle for Azeroth introduced new raid achievements to the game and if you're among the first 100 guilds worldwide to defeat the final raid boss of a raid tier on Mythic difficulty, you will be granted a title. In this case, it revolves around G'huun and the Famed Slayer of G'huun title.
      Hall of Fame: G'huun (Alliance) Hall of Fame: G'huun (Horde) After 100 guilds of each faction earn the achievement, cross-realm Mythic Uldir will become available.
      Famed Slayer Title Clarifications
      In order to use the title, you need to be in a guild that has earned the Hall of Fame achievement. On top of that, the Cutting Edge: G'huun achievement is also required.
      If you're wondering what happens if you leave a guild that has earned this achievement, chances are you probably won't be able to use the title, since you'll no longer meet the requirements. This makes perfect sense and prevents guilds from selling the title. Some exceptions could apply and the title may not be removed if you actually were in the Mythic group of 20 players that has earned the Hall of Fame achievement for a specific guild (needs confirmation).

      The wipe count for all of Uldir, including the 285 on G'huun!
      And here's the World First G'huun kill video try from the stream:

      Here's the kill clip:

      And it's Method with the World First! Re-clearing took a while and they took some time to do a Heroic as well, but as soon as they returned to G'huun they were on their way to the kill, taking only a couple of hours on the boss to down it, showing just how important that extra loot and Vantus runes are. We'll also be adding a clip and the full kill from the stream asap, so stay tuned for that!

      It seems Limit's decision to extend the lockout really did cost them, but they were consistently around 1% prior to their reset, so you can't really blame them for their decision:


      Method's second try after the re-clear was their best ever, 3.3% in fact, so it was inevitable that they'd get it fast. G'huun marks Method's 10th ever endboss World First, making them the No.1 guild in history, with Nihilum in second with 8 and Paragon in third with 7. Technically you could decide to count Nihilum and Ensidia's kills together, putting them at 11, but they decided to rename instead of merge into a new Nihilum, so you shouldn't.
      Gingi did have an interesting point as well, that Method's streaming may have actually turned out to be an advantage, as Limit could have made their extend decision partially based on seeing how close Method were to a kill because of the stream.
      In any case, huge congratulations on this amazing achievement, as Method prove they're the best once again. This race has also shown that Limit is back in a major way and the next raid(s) will be incredibly exciting!
      Method down G'huun only a few tries after the reset, gets their 10th endboss World Fist!

      As you'd expect, Method's kill got a LOT of attention, with over 180,000 people watching through all their streams on Twitch, and they also got many congratulations from all over the place, including WoW devs and the official account itself:
      Then there's Game Director Ion Hazzikostas' two congrats and raid race related tweets:
      And here's that Hall of Fame page, for some (bad) reason segmented into Horde and Alliance:

      Exorsus also joined in the congratulations:

      The race is getting insanely tense, as Method have re-cleared and we found out Limit have been having multiple sub 1% tries and their decision to extend the lockout and only progress on G'huun without getting the extra loot may have cost them. However, Method are only getting under 2% after their re-clear so it's still anybody's race as Limit may also be progressing again after sleeping. Limit's attempts:


      It's the best time to follow the livestream as we're almost sure to see a World First kill any time now, and all Method streams together have over 180,000 viewers at the moment!
