Sadly, a lot of cool gear has been removed that would be great for "mogging".
Perhaps at some point they'll bring the skins back as something else.

We can always hope...

On my very first account I had this... wish I could get it on this one. Unfortunately, you can't get it any longer. Even if it was available, people would !@#$% that the quests to get it are "too difficult". It was the mark of someone who knew how to play the class, and I miss owning it!

I'm glad I still have mine. It's an ugly POS, but it's a mark of skill for an old time raider.

Much like my tabard is a mark of how long I've been playing.

My Rhok'delar is definitely a sign of how long I've been playing and how good of a Hunter I was in vanilla wow...

I wish I still had mine, I have long though that is should be required that all hunters pass those quests before they are allowed past level 60.

I couldn't agree more with this statement.

Sadly that sexy beast no longer exists to get.
Luckily, I still keep it, my staff and my quiver on me at all times.

Waking up every 2 hours only to have Winterpsring taken by someone who never heard of "Jump Shot".

Or a random Rogue who decides to "help", as you approach Everlook.

/sigh

I agree. It was an accomplishment, that is for sure. I still have mine!

I do agree it sucks for new players not to get this quest or accomplishment (transmorg the gear). However, it is a good thing that it's out. It shows who is from original WoW, who did MC, and who completed the quest. However, I would be for bringing it back, if they added Hunter quests (and other class quests) that scale with level. If an expansion comes out, the way to get the quest remains the same, however, doing the quest the mobs scale with the player's level, abilities, and talents. I think every max level there should be some sort of Epic quest (level 60, level 70, level 80, level 85, level 90, etc).

I also wish WoW took something from EQOA (Everquest Online Adventures) and added Epic quests that you get for your class (when you hit max level). In EQOA it was levle 49 epic quest (max level was 50). When you completed these quests you got some of the best gear in the game. However, these quests took days, weeks, months to complete. They were also very difficult to complete.

That's pretty much the design intent of the new legendary. It's just not class specific.

Apparently devs have deemed class specific quests are a waste of time to develop. *mumbles something about green fire*

No one would complain that it was hard. I got all 4 demon heads on my hunter at 70 and it was CAKE then. Unfortunately, I have the stick and no sinew from Onyxia, and ergo, no bow/staff :(

Oh goodness, this thread pains me lol. I quit the game before I ever got it, then came back in Cata after they made all the quests obsolete and removed them from the game.

As much as I would love to see it reimplemented, I doubt they will. And there'd be a ton of hunters who would QQ about how hard it was to get back then and how easy it would be to get now. I can see why they'd be mad, but.... Slightly selfish for new generations of hunters :P

It would also be nice to see armour upgrades (a la Tier 0 to Tier 0.5) or even weapon quests (like the Battered Hilt) available. Wrathion's quests look like they have potential, but there's very little storyline (so far) and too much mindless grinding (ogres in Blackrock Spire notwithstanding).

I just wish they'd add some sort of quiver visual back in so I wouldn't feel awkward transmogging mine. It looks really weird to just pull an arrow straight out of your back -- I mean, it could be worse, but it's really distracting to me.

PVE was/is easy...nothing to be good about. And getting the staff/bow was nothing more than jump kiting while your friends kited away the pathing mobs.
