It's good news for all of you transmog enthusiasts: Legion dungeons and raids are being switched onto the legacy loot rules. This is admittedly quite a bit earlier than expected as with the legacy loot introduction, it wasn't until Battle for Azeroth was released and people started hitting level 111 that people could access legacy loot for Warlords dungeons. It is highly likely that this is a move that has been made in response to current events around the world, and while I certainly can't spend my time in lockdown gaming how I'd like (10pm being a very late hour and having a very exuberant solo child to entertain does that), hopefully some of the rest of you can take full advantage of this very welcome change.
With scheduled weekly maintenance the week of March 31, we’re enabling Legacy loot rules in Legion raids and dungeons.
We’re reached that point in an expansion where the content from the previous expansion no longer requires a full group, and the rewards are primarily sought by transmog collectors. With this change, Legion raid and dungeon encounters will drop a fixed quantity of class-agnostic loot. Today, if you and one other player enter Emerald Nightmare on Mythic difficulty and kill Nythendra, it’s unlikely that you’ll receive any loot, since drop rates normally scale to the number of players. After this change, Nythendra will always drop 5 items from her loot table, regardless of your group size.
Dungeons and many of the lower-difficulty raid bosses in Legion are already soloable by well-equipped Battle for Azeroth characters, though some bosses, especially on Mythic difficulty, may still require you to bring a few friends. Nonetheless, this should amount to a great increase in the availability of Legion transmog gear.
