I have all the legendaries for my main spec fury and got a legendary for arms spec. I don't play or use or never selected to change my loot type. I haven't heard anything about the game giving legendaries for other specs once you have them all for your main spec but it looks like it does.

It was a 7.2.5 undocumented change.

They probably felt it was about time that regular players would be approaching the legendary cap for any given spec, and running into the issue of changing lootspec to get different legendaries, but also messing up their relic/trinket/etc. loot table.

Makes sense. I missed that change it actually seems like a fairly big change that should have been documented for the reasons you stated.

I could have sworn I read it somewhere in black and white, but it wasn't in the 7.2.5 patch notes when I checked them before making post #2, nor in the hotfixes notes for the week following 7.2.5's deployment.

Trying to remember.

From the 7.2 Q&A with Ion
Q: With a good number of more active players having all Main Spec legendaries, how do you plan to do this without having to micromanage loot spec?
A: Plan for 7.2.5 is you can stay in a spec and if you have all the legendaries for a spec, if you get an additional legendary it will randomly drop for another spec. If you want legendaries for a specific spec, you'll have to be in that loot spec. For example: If you are a Ret paladin and have all the Ret legendaries, if you get another legendary to drop it will randomly be holy or prot.


Not sure why it didn't make it to the 7.2.5 notes, but from your experience, this system is clearly working.
