The legendary item system is the #1 negative of LOTRO today. It is so monumentally egregious to all but the hardest of hardcore grinders that it literally drives away players. After level 50, you can't avoid using them without seriously hampering your abilities, yet you have to grind like mad just to find one that's actually half decent. There is just way too much randomness for it be even remotely fun. Who ever thought of this incarnation of Legendary Items should be fired immediately. For those who haven't purchased MoM yet, don't. At least wait until they've fixed the current LI system.
