5.4 Legendary Quest (Spoilers)

Well, people in the Timeless Isle thread are going to ignore this to continue their pissing contest, so I'll make a new thread, as more information on the Isle, and the Legendary quest line with Wrathion has been released.

Patch 5.4 - Legendary Quest Line Update
Wrathion is back again in Patch 5.4, first asking you to meet him at the Tavern. He has learned of the new Timeless Isle added in Patch 5.4 and wants to further augment your cloak by "time-locking" it.

You will have to head to Timeless Isle and collect 50 x Timeless Coin for one step in the quest. While you are doing that, you also have to defeat the four August Celestials of Pandaria in combat, which likely requires a group.

Once you have completed both steps, you head to the Seat of Knowledge so that Wrathion can augment your cloak once more. This will likely use the upgraded cloak models added a few patches ago.

After having your cloak upgraded, there is one final quest to kill Garrosh. Wrathion reveals to you that this was his plan all along, but he has no more rewards for you. The Golden Lotus may have a reward for you though, but the current rewards on the quest are just placeholders.

So far it's nothing special, and there's no reward. Hopefully, this changes as this quest line has been irritating at some parts.

I just want a mount, pet or title from this.

Something that would have made it worth my while after the expansion is over.

Legendaries have never offered permanent titles. Dragon'swrath gave you a mount(Yeah I remember that). But that was the only one.

Those rarely happen. Too much drama over shadowmourne and tarecgosa I'd be surprised if they try that again

I don't think I've even done the whole "sigil" thing from 5.0.

I'm not much of a raider, even using LFR, so the "spam the raid and collect 378432787823478342 items" sort of thing isn't something I often complete. Same reason why I never really sought similar types of weapons when I played Final Fantasy XI.

Except those were class restricted.

Everyone could get the Shadowmourne mount because it's tradable and the Dragonwrath staff doesn't count toward any mount.

Not drama per se depending on your group, but getting sharable gifts isn't the standard for legendaries. I'd be surprised if there was even a cool visual effect like the fangs.

Yeah and the Staff did actually have a mount.

I didn't say it didn't have a mount, I'm saying it didn't count towards a mount.

Like it didn't count towards any mount achievements since it was a spell on the staff, not a learnable mount. Unless that's changed.

Oh joy, more RNG quests. 10 more weeks until I'm done with titan runestones at this drop rate...

Shadowmorne gave you a whole bunch of stuff.

Eh, As long as i get something decent from this quest-line ill be OK with it.

But really it's been a pain in the !@# collecting all this stuff so it'd best be worthwhile.

I wonder how "time-locking" a cloak could enhance its capabilities. Remove magical energy leak? Probably. Or something like that. Also, how one upgrades an ilvl 600 cloak to be even more broken.

It's also been stated that we're all getting legendary weapons after this is all over, but from the way it looks like it's being handled, it's is going to be extremely underwhelming, something among the lines of Thori'dal, which didn't have any lore associated with it. "Oh, hey, thanks for stopping that civil war and helping restore the exploded Vale, here's something we dredged up from our vaults which probably exploded as well. Hey, looks like you can use this, take it and go away. Forever."

@DaveKosak I have no reward to offer you. I have already done everything in my power to ensure that you succeed. -Wrathion. Not rly or? :(

@nivramo He says that AFTER he arms you. With a Legendary. Don't be greedy! ;)


That pretty much confirms its a legendary cloak.

Meh, for some reason I just haven't really cared about the legendary quests of this expansion.

I do however like that at least Wrathion continues to get lore.

I like this model of quest line (something everyone can get, not just select members of specific classes). However, this ending seems... meh. I was hoping for some awesome weapon or something cool like that.

I never for a second thought we would all get really amazing weapons. I knew it would be something small.

I guess that's why I prefer the other types of legendary quests. Yes, I completely understand why some people like the MoP ones because everyone can get it. But maybe that's why I don't like it as much. Everyone can get it if they grind enough.

And this is coming from somebody who has never owned any legendary weapon.

Ugh. I hate being the guy who QQ's, but a cloak, really? I've gone all-out on this legendary quest and put a buttload of time in it. Is this really all there is? I was thinking some BA looking weapon or something. I mean, think about it:

-Sulfurion, a powerful mace embedded with the elemental lord of fire's power
-Thunderfury, a weapon so mighty it forged 1 million memes
-The twin blades of Azzinoth, blades that look so wicked people go out of their way to get them, even though you can't xmog your weapons to look like them
-Thoridal, the hunter weapon which first introduced unlimited ammo
-Shadowmourne, an almighty axe forged in the darkness of Northrend, imbued with the power of the fabled Lich King
-Tarecgosa's wrath, a staff with the power of the aspect of MAGIC's consort. Allows you to turn into a DRAGON.
-Fangs of the father, almighty daggers which hold the strength of both the twilight's hammer and the aspect of death.

-....and. A cloak. That has a ilevel that will be irrelevant in an expac.

I've been doing the legendary quest because I was expecting some cool weapon or piece of armor. Something that, expansions later, I could pull out and impress some new friends with.

But instead, a cloak.
