Patch 7.2: Will Relinquished Items Fix Legendaries?

Further fixes for Legendary items underway. Relinquished items were introduced in the latest build of 7.2 (#23623). The items are unique per slot and have a chance to contain Legendary items.

Relinquished Items

The persisting problem with Legendaries is that you don't get the one you want or need. Not anymore though. Relinquished items discover an item appropriate for your loot specialization and not only that, they have a chance to contain a Legendary item, most likely on a slot-per-slot basis.

Example: Relinquished HoodRelinquished Hood may contain only Head slot Legendary items, such as Darckli's Dragonfire DiademDarckli's Dragonfire Diadem or Uncertain ReminderUncertain Reminder. Such slot restrictions increase the chances of getting the Legendary item you want. The question is what's the probability of getting a Legendary item?

Unidentified Legendary Items

Update: Unidentified Legendary items were considered, but they won't go live as bad luck protection for individual specializations will be implemented.

The previous build (#23578) added items that create Legendaries based on your set loot spec. This may represent an overall fix for loot spec problems. I think unidentified Legendaries will drop by default and we won't need to worry about loot spec.

Taken from here.

What do you think about the latest changes?

That may help a little bit I guess... except once you get an unidentified legendary token, even if you don't open it, I can guarantee it'll still use up your bad-luck protection and make your second (then third) legendary that much harder to obtain.

Sure you might technically be able to target specific legendaries a bit easier with those relinquished tokens... I doubt that was meant to remedy to the whole legendary rng problem though. You can try and only open tokens for the gear slot you want, but there is no way to avoid being randomly awarded an actual legendary token from doing... basically anything, and at that point you might as well just receive a random legendary directly.

Also it doesn't really help when your BiS legendary is a ring, and Brewmaster monks weep because they are literally eligible for two different belts.

Hopefully they ditch legendaries in the next xpac and just go back to having a legendary item quest chain. Super low chance of dropping items that are integral to maximizing your rotation was a stupid idea.

there's something I don't understand: 

As a BM hunter, I will focus on getting The Mantle of Command as example. As long as I don't get the Relinquished Spaulders item, I won't open any "relinquished box". Right?

What is the drop rate of these boxes?  What are the chances to get a Leg item in it? 

I really don't understand how introducing a new rng  system  for legendaries will fix the legendary rng issue... Am I missing something?

I like that we are able to aim now, this will make fishing for off spec legendaries better. There are many classes where I haven't bothered to fish simply because there are only 1-2 legendaries i want and I don't trust RNGesus, I've gotten Kiljaedens burning wish 3 times (on different toons mind you). So the new changes are a nice addition to the system.

My only wish is that legendaries were character/class bound and not spec. What I mean is that your helm would do one thing as frost but when you switch to unholy or blood it would do something else. I don't mind fishing for a couple legendaries, honestly getting mine has been really fun, however, its a pain needing effectively 6 legendaries (assuming 3 spec class) for one character. I wish the legendaries would be altered like WoD gear was where you can reuse same gear for different specs. (wait did i actually mention something in wod was good, ITS THE END OF TIMES)

*note I am aware you can still equip a offspec legendary to use as a stat stick, i'm referring to abilities being transferred, kinda like how tier set works, you have your bonuses but when you switch spec you have your other bonuses*

Nah that would be way too logical and we can't have that! D:

well heck using diablo as reference with the glorious cube there is a way to turn gear into other gear, so maybe even a simple re-roll system would be fine. Like the touched by a titan quest, get 50-100 essences of change or some junk to be able to re roll a legendary. Lots of easy ways to fix the system.

That would be amazing; the quest is still there and you can still do it even when you don't have any 910 legendaries anymore, might as well make it useful.

It would be better if you could just aim for a specific legendary from the start without having to risk getting a different one, but being able to reliably correct bad rng within a week or two (or three) would be better than nothing.

IMO this would fix about 2/3 the problem with the current legendary system.

and we see it already implemented in tier gear so it doesn't seem like it would be that hard to do. now people might whine that oh the pants are better for outlaw rogues then the other two specs but the fireback would be, at least you have a functional legendary that is a dps increase, it may benefit one spec more than the others but at least its usable. 

even then to some degree we have cross spec usable ones already, kiljaedens burning meatball for instance

I tweeted the idea to the warcraft devs just now, i'm sure they will ignore it like my petition to get tauren antlers, but at least i tried XD

ha sure enough they answered, granted a different person allegedly asked but whatever great minds think alike. they said that system doesn't make sense because the legendaries have lore/fantasy behind them........ i call bs.

      Today we have some nerdscreams and the raid setup from Method's Argus kill, stealth hotfixes for the encounter, overall endboss stats for all of Legion as well as the Exorsus World 2nd Aggramar kill video.
      The race to World First ended today as Method continued their recent dominance of Legion's raids and took down the probably final boss of the expansion, a mere 8 days after it was released (or 7 days after they started progress). We've already covered the WF itself, but there have been plenty of new stats coming after the kill, including the wipe count and raid setup. But first let's take a look/listen to the nerdscreams as the boss went down, somewhat less enthusiastic than usual I'd have to say:

      Method also shared what stealth hotfixes happened while they were progressing on the final boss, not mentioned in any official notes:
      We then have the raid composition for the kill itself, featuring 12 different classes including 3 rouges, 3 mages and 2 hunters:

      And on to the wipe count, it took 320 failed attempts to get the world soul down as we already mentioned, and here's a comparison table for all the Legion endbosses, including the time they stayed alive for:
      Raid / Boss WF Guild Wipe Count Time to kill (from region reset) Time to kill (from previous boss)  The Emerald Nightmare
      Xavius  
      Exorsus 19 17h40min
      +16h from US launch 2h43min  Trial of Valor
      Helya
       Method 223 2 days 7h
      +16h from US launch 2 days 1h  The Nighthold
      Gul'dan  
      Exorsus 247 11 days 6h
      +16h from US launch 4 days 22h The Tomb of Sargeras
      Kil'jaeden
       Method 654 19 days 5h
      +16h from US launch 11 days 19h  Antorus: the Burning Throne
      Argus the Unmaker
       Method 320 7 days 8h
      +16h from US launch 6 days 14h And finally, we also got to see Exorsus World 2nd Aggramar kill video:
      The race itself isn't quite over yet, as only Method have managed to end the Unmaker and finish up Antorus, and so the silver is still up in the air. Will Exorsus secure their expected second place finish or will the Asia guilds climb further up in this tier? Limit has also had the reset for two days now and seeing how crucial the gear from the 2nd clear is they still have quite the head start over Style War and Alpha. And let's not forget current 4th place holders Memento, who also might make it an all EU top 3. There are quite a few combinations that are open, so keep following Method.gg's live coverage to find out how it all shakes out, or check back in here when some more kills happen.

      There's a new PTR build up, bringing with it Ulduar Timewalking and an even larger focus on the new 1-100 level scaling mechanics. Blizzard are asking for help in testing the questlines in some specific zones as well, so get on there and test!
      Build 25700 (source)
      This week, we’ve implemented a new build that primarily brings bugfixes to the PTR. Our biggest focus for testing remains the new level 1-100 zone and dungeon scaling we’re introducing with 7.3.5. This is an extensive change to how loot, quests, and creatures work in the open world, so we continue to look for as much feedback as we can get about how things are working out.
      Thank you so much for all of the feedback you’ve provided so far on leveling in Azeroth. We hope you keep the feedback coming, and we’d like to ask you to especially focus some of your testing on the questlines in these specific zones:
       Blade's Edge Mountains
       Duskwood
       Hellfire Peninsula
       Icecrown
       Kun-Lai Summit
       Nagrand
       Storm Peaks
       Terokkar Forest
       Vashj'ir
       Wetlands
      Feedback on the difficulty, pacing, and most importantly, any bugs you might find while completing quests in the above zones would be most helpful. Please post your level scaling feedback here.
      We now have Ulduar Timewalking available for testing, and it should be available for the next four days or so. Please post Ulduar Timewalking feedback here.
      Also, a heads up—We’re planning a scheduled playtest of the new Seething Shore PvP Battleground. Get ready to Play With The Blues on the PTR on Tuesday, December 19 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. PST. The Seething Shore is a 10v10 race to gather Azerite on an island near Silithus, and we hope you’ll be able to join us there and test it thoroughly on Tuesday.
      As always, thank you very much for participating in the PTR!
      In case you need more info on what's coming with Patch 7.3.5, you can check out our ongoing coverage:
