This bothers me too. There's gotta be some internal switch or catch-all default case that they can flip or fix en-masse. What I'm sure has happened is that things were developed inconsistently early on, and then the pattern expanded, compounded by the age and current scope of the game.
It's hard to know exactly what the issue is. It could easily be clarified by a blue, and we'll probably just be told it's something on the list to fix, but it'll be a while.
Will we be continuing to use and upgrade our Sha-touched weapons in 5.2, or are there new ones to get?
My understanding is from Blizzard tweets is that you'll be replacing your sha-touched weapon eventually. Such is life with gear, it gets replaced!
Do you think we'll get a "normal" legendary weapon in last raid tier of MoP, or are we going to continue helping Wrathion level up his Jewelcrafting?
I'm working on the assumption that it's going to be a Wrathion thing. I'd be pretty surprised if we get a random drop or auxiliary quest at some point. It makes a lot of sense with the design goal of the Wrathion quest line. Want a legendary? Put the work in, the entire expansion.
Do you guys have a big list of MoP mounts?
We don't... which is really something we need to do for the next expansion. I'll add it to my ever growing list. But hey, this lets me plug my friend Dan's MoP mount guide over at his site.
What's everyone's Valentine's Day plans?
I'm cooking a very healthy Asian meal for my wife and me. Think Bennihanna's, but with healthy rice.
