Well, that settles it for me. I don't want to buy the expansion so I can play a glorified slot machine. I want to kill things that drop legendaries, not spend my time farming shards.
Good luck to those of you who wind up buying the expansion.
A big piece of the pie that was missing was that we always intended for Kadala to be able to generate legendary items. More specifically she was intended to help give players more direct control over their ability to find specific items they were after. Not to the tune of "I want X item so I buy it" but we wanted players to have a degree of control by saying "Man I really want X helm, so I'll spend all my Blood Shards buying helms and try to get the one I'm after eventually".

They flip from pay-to-win to slot machine addicts win....
How did they go from Martens saying in an interview released November 13th, 2013
"Trading is a valid way to get items, but we know – and we’ve decided to put our stake in the ground – that finding a monster and killing it and getting the item is the most fun way to play. "
