Is the Legendary worth trying for?

Mage
I mean, I am in by no means a superb raiding guild so I'd hafta go it alone probly . Do you think I should even bother trying for it at this point given its so late in the xpac? Thanks
no.

if you're just starting on it now, itll take so long to get, you'll be level 90 before it happens.
likewise, should i try for the legendary daggers for my rogue alt? THose seem more plausible or is it in the same scenario?
I say yes, but mainly for the transformation into a giant blue dragon! You never outlevel that.
also Im havin trouble gettin better ilvl gear what should i be doing to get better gear? Heeroic FL? Heroic 5man WoE For FGDL? OR DS Where can i get better Stuff farming which areas?

My suggestion would be run the Well of Eternity to get the trinket off Mannoroth then after that just run the Raid Finder should pick up a few 384 pieces that way and possible your tier pieces, once you're gear improves a bit you could try getting into some pug DS runs or possibly even into a guild needing a mage.

Also even if the legendary is long off i say go for it anyways, nothing really compares to that feeling when you get yourself a shiny orange :P
Thanks Tsuin! You gave me just the info I was lookin for bud!
Go for one more piece of time-lord's. Then you get the haste bonus which is awesome. 2005 haste req. - 500 from the 2 piece = 1505 left which is cake.

Well maybe not the legendary daggers, but for 10k gold you can easily get a great pair of 397 daggers, easy!
Just to put it in perspective, the legendary staff in 10 man takes about 18 full clears of FL.
That's almost 5 months doing it weekly. And you can't solo it so you need a group to do it with you all those times that doesn't include a mage on the same step as you.

"Long way off" doesn't really describe how painful it is.
I would say don't even waste another minute thinking about it. It would be a monumental effort at this time and you'd need 6-7 other people willing to dedicate 18 weeks of their time to help you.
whoo doggy.. that is alot... I might just give it a whirl just to see how it goes anyways.. How long in comparison do the rogues legendaries set take from start to finish?
I'm still getting mine.. Its a Legendary which is all that matters. What else will your guild that raids three nights a week and clears DS in two do the next night..
It's a nice thing to have. Realisticly, it's going to take you months if not a year to get. I say a year b/c there's an xpac coming and you'll miss resets. clearing firelands every week for 6months is something you'll get very tired of.

The rogue daggers are much easier to get, time-wise.
Go for the daggers
Do not go alone on the staff. It was hard enough to convince the guild to get our first Legendary without the support of a good guild group, I don't know how you would ever do it. Believe me, I've been trying.

Still roughly 15 weeks in 10 man.

Sleep, play Diablo III, spend time with wife/girlfriend/spouse, play the test server, watch a movie, work on alts, do some chores...

It was painful just getting my group to do FL 2 times once DS came out and no one else really needed anything out of there. I don't see how you could get a group to carry you through it 20 times just to get a legendary that by the time you get it won't even be BIS.
No, the legendary staff will be replaced around lvl 87 by a blue, I replaced my staff I have now and its BIS at lvl 86 from a quest blue.
