Storms Wake emissary: a one hand dagger.

General Discussion
For my lock, useless as I dont have an offhander to go with it, for my ret pally useless as ret uses 2 handers...why arent these weapons spec specific?
Weapon and trinket WQ rewards have never been spec specific.

Just to be clear, he asked "why?" not "how long"? I'd like to know the "why?" as well.
For my rogue it is a one handed axe.. They've said before the rewards are class specific, not spec specific..

Now that I don't disagree.. would love to get a decent off hand for my rogue.
You outgear any wq rewards in minimal effort that don't act of god titanforge anyway and weapons can't titanforge so who cares?

I do. As do others.

If Blizzard wants us out in open world then there need to be consistent and useful incentives to do so.
Probably because the weapons are set on a predetermined rotation and not generated daily, which means there's no way of taking spec into account. That'd be my guess.
Could be worse, you could be a rogue and get an axe instead of a dagger.

And here's another valid question: why not? Except for newly minted 120s none of the world quest gear is going to be an upgrade, and even those new 120s won't need those items for long.

If you're going to complain about RNG then complain about the useful stuff. There are plenty of other things that could have some attention paid vs. one single aspect that is only going to be useful for a few weeks at best and then never again.

And to answer your question, because that's the way that it's always been since emissaries were implemented. A precedent has been set and they're sticking with it.

RNG doesnt factor into making a reward for an emissary spec specific.

No actually, back in Legion when we did an emissary we got a CHEST with gear and other materials in it, not a set reward that is more or less scrapper material.

A dagger is of no use to me unless theres an offhand to go with it.

A dagger is useless to a ret pally.

So what I am asking is : why arent these rewards spec specific?

As for outgearing, I go back to the issue of making world content viable with suitable incentives...unless the idea is to have us sitting in Boralus and queuing for instances with an empty world as a result.

Legion offered us a viable alternative gearing path, it offered incentives and events and items that made people WANT to spend time in the zones instead of running laps around Boralus waiting for queues to pop.

How many times have people complained "the world feels empty"?

Frequently.

I've gotten a whole bunch of Polearms and Staves---on my BM hunter.


Looks like it isnt just me.

I'm guessing it's to encourage people to try other specs. No other reason really makes sense.
Hey, it's free Enchanting Mats as far as I'm concerned...

It seems like its Blizzards way of throwing players a bone for gear for their off specs. I thankfully have gotten gear for both ret and prot from WQs so when I swap specs I have gear I can use for them because of this.

Your logic makes sense, however if people want to gear off spec its easy enough to switch to that alt spec in loot specialisation. Reward should be based on that, hell, even if its the spec you chose last when you logged off before emissary quest rotated. Getting gear you can't/won't use from emissary is just a piss off, and lazy design.
Your Paladin did not get a 1 handed dagger.

He either got a 1 hander suitable for holy or a 1 hander suitable for prot, or the ugly duckling a 2 hander for holy.
I'm getting a fist weapon as a Warrior.

Emissary rewards have been screwed up since BFA's launch but they haven't fixed it for some reason.

Really I got a crossbow today that was "upgraded" with avoidance - that makes zero sense.

Yup, just got that one too. Really useful...not.

He got a 1 handed dagger.

With loot spec set to retribution. I dont need an offspec as I am already levelling a prot pally, prot pallies use swords, axes, maces, they have NEVER used daggers and no didnt get a 2 hander either.
