Lemme tell you all a quick story.
Way back in the day when I was like, oh, level 25 or 30 or so and first stumbled across BigRedKitty… he did a lot of talking about a little weapon called Legacy. How much he wanted it and how long it took him before he finally got it. I was still a newbie and knew very little about this game but I knew that this must be one heckuva weapon. I started seeing other hunters with it and thinking any hunter who had it must be one epic hunter. How I longed to be an epic hunter someday like that, but it wasn’t ever gonna happen, I was sure, because I was never gonna see Karazhan.
So all this time, ever since I was level 30, I’d longingly inspect those Legacy-sporting hunters, certain they’d forever be out of my league.
This is a happy day in Hunterland.
Edit: Well, I wound up doing even more gear-switching than I thought. I finally equipped my [Violet Signet] (I am 2% of my rep away from Exalted, by the way) to make up for the Hit Rating loss I got from equipping Legacy. Then I went to put my badges in the bank and discovered that you can only have a stack of 200 badges and I had 201. So I splurged and bought [Scaled Drakeskin Chestguard]. Next stop: Choco-Bow. In the meantime, buffed only with Aspect of the Hawk, I have jumped from 538 to 560 agility, from 1659 to 1705 attack power, and from 24.66% to 25.21% crit.
It has been a good day.
