I personally think any legendary besides the Greatswords and Hammer (maybe the sword if you like korean style FX) feels unfinished and untimately ugly. There are exotic weapons with MUCH, MUCH better skins and effects, and also cost about 15-30g which is one day worth of TP camp.
This also leads to my second thought: why the hell would anyone go for a one-handed legendary? All the offhand legendaries have no FX besides a tiny glow and the main hand ones are VERY lackluster. To top it off, the requirements for 2h and 1h legendaries are THE SAME, which makes no sense for anyone using common sense.
Just like the PvE experience becomes linear, boring and dull after level 40, I think ArenaNet had to rush their work on the legendaries to deliver the game faster, for whatever reason.
Do you guys think some of these lackluster legendaries will get re-skinned later on? I don't think it is a priority issue, but since grinding for legendaries is the only endgame GW2 have, it is a way to keep players interested in them around.... most of my friends who reached 80 and had no interests of spending their life in front of a computer to get better looking pixels, left.
