The requirements for legendary weapons are absolutely absurd

This need for instant gratification is getting pathetic. Full relics in FFXI took 2-3 years to complete pre-aby. Lu Shang required catching 10,000 moat carp with a hard cap of 200 fish/day. Ebisu is a whole other level on top of lu shang.

A legendary item is actually hard and time consuming to get? Oh no!


There's nothing really hard about getting the Legendary Weapon outside of running the Explorable Modes for Tokens. Everything else just boil down to being time consuming, which I would be okay with if not for the Lucky Clovers.

The fact that there is an entirely RNG based section to acquiring the Legendary Weapon simply to make it take longer to get is really what kills the entire thing for me.

This

The mystic clover thing is just retarded IMO. Your talking about wasting 150+ skill points, over 500,000+ thousand karma etc (AND THATS IF YOU GET THE 33% CHANCE)

Could be more, could be less, could be why I never go for one...

I'm sorry, please define "a lot" for me. "A lot" and "a couple" do not seem synonymous.

I am amazed at the number of people I have seen in game or elsewhere that complain about the time it takes to acquire a legendary item. If you don't want to spend the time getting one THEN DONT. They are not in anyway necessary. They exist SOLELY for people who enjoy a grind.

There are plenty of great looking weapon skins in the game. Most legendary weapons are ugly as sin anyway. Surely you can find at least 1 skin you like as much as whatever legendary you want.

The instant gratification mentality is ruining mmos.

There is a very very very large gap between instant gratification and the requirements for a legendary weapon.... there's definitely a happy medium or two in there
