how important is legend?
« on: September 10, 2018, 04:01:16 AM »
i managed to make a legendary warrior and a barbarian last wipe and after some testing the upgrade seemed very minor.  is this really a thing i need to be doing? 

or am i missing something and it actually is really good?  should i avoid classes that i cant get to legendary like dk or druid?  any advice from someone more experienced?

I would say the skills/spells, and innate bonuses you get for legending (and the ranks you can buy thereafter) are definitely worth legending for... I'd tend to agree with you for warriors that it doesn't really feel like you get any super overpowered spike at legend but for almost every other class your overall character strength goes WAY up. And being legend also means you can make exotics!

Now there are some legend things that suck like legend punch rank and slam skill... but other skills and spells like adrenaline rush/legend lay/nightfall are so good for so many things that any legendary character with those skills can do so much more than if they didn't have them.

I remember when paladins got legend strike, the damage gained was so much you could obliterate with store weapons... not so much now but there are definitely still classes with massively overpowered legend bonuses out there.

To get a clearer picture between non-legend and legend, one needs to only take a look at the Shaman class. Compare pre-legend shaman to legend shaman and you can easily see the power spike.

interesting so some legend classes are not as legendary as others. 

ok thanks for the input guys.  might skip legendary on my basher this time and try for auto haste!

Legend warriors come with Assault and Fortress. Assault is an offensive skill, fortress is a defensive skill. I've mostly not seen much benefit of Fortress in the groups I've been in, since usually my warrior is bashing and not tanking. Assault is pretty terrific when it goes off though as you can do a tonne of damage in a round. Also, Legendary Warrior bash and punch are pretty awesome and noticeably better than non-Legend.

But yes, some of the improvements in the Legendary version of a class are much more noticeable.

ps. If you spend 600k coins and 30 ranks on haste you may end up disappointed.
