    Basically with this quest you are equipping our whole raid with best in slot items.. got a dps check? Big deal, we have 20 people with the best weapon(currently known) in the game.

    Make this quest finish-able by 2-3 people per GSB clear.
    Or figure out another way to deal with it.
    This is.. Silly. Let's just go ahead and face that right now. What you are posting is silly and you are a silly, silly boy.

    First off, these are not best in slot items. These are situationally best in slot for fights that have 0 raid damage. Notice the lack of endurance; if I found one of my guys wearing this trying to meter crush on a progression fight, I'd probably throw them out of the raid for a rep and tell them to stop being dumb.

    Secondly, who cares? So an entire guild can get good weapons for t3 raids after beating Greenscale once. So what? It's not like we're going to stop running the instance since the drop rates are terrible elsewhere. It's not like we instantly win fights we weren't winning. As encounter complexity and ae damage become commonplace, weapons with endurance trump the hell out of balls-to-the-wall dps weaps.

    It's fine.

    There's endurance on some of them, and endurance isn't needed depending on your spec/class, plus when it is you have enchants/essences. Saying a weapon is bad because it's lacking 30endurance but has MUCH better DPS stats is kinda dumb, however you're gonna argue about it. I do agre that it's fine though. Wish Hylas shield was on this quest and he would drop useful stuff instead too.

    That quest chain is poorly designed and should reward you much better earlier on. I glad to hear that there's at least some sort of payoff for spinning your wheels on the earlier stuff.

    The guy that created the actual quests should be fired. I've been moderate about most things, including broken quests, but the Saga chain almost made me quit the entire game because of how poorly designed it is. It's not even remotely on par with Onyxia or any other chain Blizzard created back in the day. You don't get rewarded immediately like the WANTED quests in Drought and most people don't even do the chain, so it's near impossible to get a group for without begging guildies who probably haven't even gotten to the second part after Freemarch either.

    So basically, for the guardians, the quest is ending with nothing but the necklace and the helm and a broken heart, and the defiants get another quest to kill greenscale and get the best weapons i've seen so far in this game? This **** is broken

    The staff looks bad *** though, and stats wise it would beat a 1H+OH from Greenscale because these weaps are higher level than Greenscale loot. But yeah I guess it's missing some options for looks and what not. No daggers for rogues, the tanking weapon is so generic it's kinda terrible for everyone, no shield. I'm not sure they can have more than 6rewards in a quest though. I think they should have given like a token to buy from a special vendor that only opens once you complete it, or made branch quests, like exclusive quests which each give a specific reward, so they could have made sets too(quest rewards 1h+totem, 1h+shield or 2h). Oh well, maybe for the Saga of the Abyssal when they open Hammerknell ^^.

    f that wtb less focus on everything, i swear the next tier of raiding better require like 400ish or they need to reitemize more items into having less focus >.>

    Its just hard to find good spellpower gear from t2's to replace focus gear.

    Sounds to me like a proper vanilla quest chain, what was the question?

    So let me get this straight. We're complaining about 1 of our of 13 to 14 slots that can have a best in slot item. And one of them we get from a long quest that requires a raid?

    There's a problem in this, right? It's there. I just can't see it.

    You forget the part where Defiants need it to be competitive.
