MOP legendary quest line

I stopped playing WOW just before 5.1 hit and didn't come back until 5.2 hit. I was pleased when I got my first weapon with a sha-touched socket. Not long after, I replaced it with a higher ilevel one without such a socket. As I look at the loot tables of Throne of Thunder, I see no sha-touched anything.

So I'm confused. Do I need to keep running MSV for the sigils or is the quest line already obsolete?

The quest line has gone on to include a legendary (or just really good) meta gem, and I believe you can put a socket onto weapons in ToT as well.

Sha Touched Weapons and the gems for them are obsolete, yes.

But there are more quests after that reward you with relevant rewards, including the Eye of the Prince, a meta socket you can place in any 5.0 or 5.2 weapon. And ya, as mentioned, the legendary meta gem.

Come 5.3 (I think) there will be an iLevel 600 cape to be earned and supposedly 5.4 will give us Legendary Weapons.

Thanks for the replies. So I should keep plugging away at MSV to get the sigils to be able to do the follow up quests?

I've been using Jinya Orb of the waterspeaker on my priest (with gem+prismatic slot gem) and have refused to replace it with everything i've seen so far from 502-522. Melee weapons may differ.

The first reward you get can potentially be obsolete in the case you've gotten a weapon from ToT already.

However, you have to go through that particular questline to continue on and get the more up-to-date rewards as well as future rewards.

*Minor spoilers ahead*

Next reward is a free weapon socket to any weapons from ToT/Sha-touched.

After that is a special meta gem.

5.3 is giving us ilvl 600(!) capes.

5.4 will presumedly give us a full-fledged weapon.

The two big ones are the cape and the weapon. So yes, keep running MSV/HoF/ToES. Currently, MSV drops power sigils, HoF drops wisdom, and ToES drops both. I believe that 5.3 changes this so that all three of those drops both types.

New question. Do you guys think it might be best to just chase the legendary questline on my "main" instead of being stuck with a series of alts who all have to do every RF each week just for sigils? Or do you suppose the 5.3 changes will make it less time consuming chasing after sigils?

5.3 will make it less time consuming.

Blizz has stated that you can toss the Sha-Touched Weapons from HoF and Terrace, and replace them with a ToT Weapon.

They only said keep the Sha-Touched Gems, as they would be making a comeback (maybe some Sha-Touched weapons in Siege).

It'd be best to do it on all characters, but try it more often on the character you play the most.

Unless they're upping the drop rate on Secrets of the Empire, that's not exactly true. Depending on your RNG, the derping of the Valor cap is meaningless. I've been on the Secrets quest line since 5.2 launched, done every ToT LFR (and numerous normal kills) up to today, and am at 17 secrets.

6K valor or 3K valor, the collections are still going to take some time.

After the Secrets, one gets to collect 12 Titan Runestone that only drops from the last 6 bosses of ToT.

1/12 so far in two weeks.

Yeah I know, I'm just trying to get through secrets at this point. Went 3 weeks and got 1. :( Ahh well, RNG is an insufferable *itch sometimes :)

So if I'm full up on Wisdoms, then I can skip HoF until 5.3 goes live? There are no gear upgrades in there for me and the effort:yield for gold/sha crystals is otherwise too high for my tastes.
