So I've seen alot of discussion about the new legendary trinket and how it's unfair for arenanet to lock it behind raids, and I just wanted to throw out my opinion on it
Legendary trinkets were introduced into the community pretty recently, and their inclusion was met with overall positivity. The very first legendary trinket was implemented to be earned almost solely through living world season three, and it was once again met with overwhelming positivity.
So what's different about the new legendary ring? It's another legendary trinket locked behind a specific aspect of the game, raids in this case, but it's caused a far greater outrage from the community then the trinket that was attached solely to living world season 3... The complaints all stem from one simple argument, the legendary trinket shouldn't be locked behind a game mode that isn't accessible to the while community, and shouldn't be made exclusive to those who raid.
I completely disagree with this argument for a few reasons, and these are the reasons I think it's okay for the trinket to be locked behind raids
1.its one out of five trinkets to come... The first trinket was locked behind living world season three maps, and is something I'll never have the desire to work for, and we can assume all five of them will come from different areas of the game . One from the living world , one from raids, one from PvP , one from fractals,ect. So why is it such a problem to everyone that one comes from raids?
People have been saying it's not okay to lock one legendary trinket behind an area of the game they don't play, while simultaneously failing to look at the fact the first legendary trinket was also locked behind an area of the game that some people don't play as well. I seen in one post someone say, .... This ring belongs to the living world map... Well, the first trinket belonged to the living world. The second belongs to raids, the third maybe to WvW, the fourth maybe to fotm.
Before bashing arenanet, and telling them they're shooting there own foot, take a step back to look at the system, the implementations of the trinkets so far, and what's to come for the remainder of the legendary trinket set.
Before complaining that you'll never be able to get it, ask yourself how much it means to you, and if it really means enough to you, you'll have it in no time I promise you.. I never thought I'd raid, but here I am recently finishing my legendary armor. It's accessible to all of us if it means enough to you ..
I hope this post does some good somewhere in the community thanks for reading.
