Now first thing a lot of people are thinking right now is, "there have already been threads like this," yes I know however things have changed since then so hear me out.
I got to thinking about this after I got curious and decided to check the wiki on Legendary Armour from PvP and WvW.
What I found out intrigued me, because the prices of the precursor armours were very similar to those of the Illustrious armour that BLING-9009 sells.
They require similar amounts of Marks and gold. So the big question is why can't the Illustrious armour be converted into a Legendary armour too?
Well first thing is that the PvP and WvW armours require a certain rank to be reached before they can be purchased.
HOWEVER we do have ranks in Fractals now too i.e. Fractal Savant etc
Second thing is that the Illustrious armour is the exact same as the first Ascended armour we could craft when it was first introduced., so it doesn't really work as a precursor armour.
However all ANET would have to do is introduce a new set with it's own unique look, and it would have slightly higher demands like instead of Fractal Relics it would require Pristine Fractal Relics to purchase. And of course this new armour would require a certain "rank" before it can be accquired like "Fractal Prodigy."
While if there were also a more lavish version just like the PvP and WvW do then it would require a higher rank i.e. Fractal Champion at very least.
And of course the Legendary versions of these armours would not gain any new looks but retain the one the precursor armour has just like the PvP and WvW do in order not to cause outrage from the Raiding community. So you can put it in a pipe and smoke it if you thought I wanted FotM to replace Raids.
So how do others feel about this? I mean if there already is Legendary PvP and WvW armour, then I don't think a similar Legendary armor from FotM would hurt much.
