I for one totally agree with this post. I remember how much qq'ing went out when they released the SSO badge loot right before SWP came out. The hardcore raiders were like WTF i raided for 8 months for this gear and now some nub just hit 70 last week and is almost as well geared. Remember, fellow <now> hardcore raiders, everyone has to start somewhere. We get loot *far* faster than casuals, and we get better loot on top of that. Sure, my Torch of Holy Fire is now crap, but I replaced it with something much better, and just because some casual can roll into a heroic and walk out with a 550 sp wep doesn't make me any less, it just gives me one more person to raid with. If you had to go into Naxx and then ulduar and then Totc before you could set foot into ICC there would be no raiding guilds. Because not enough people would be on the same stage of progression. So Blizz giving out free purples to nubs helps everyone. That's my piece.PS My favorite quote : You can give a nub epic purple lewtz, but you can't hit his buttons in the right order for him.
Anyone else notice in the picture of the LFG, theres a image of warlock t4 helm where there should be a frost/triumph emblem?
You lied to me, Malgayne. I clicked the thread, and have no new gear in my mailbox.Sad panda time.(btw I apologize for my crude comment last week in the other thread) <3
Quote: "Just wait—before long, we'll be getting emblems for using the in-game voice chat!"Great idea! Maybe one emblem for every 5 minutes? ;DBut the voicechat does not work on random dungeon groups.But adding the extra emblems and the dragon is just silly. I liked Occulus. It was challenging and not just free loot at the beginning. But most people are just unable to read a tooltip to use the dragons properly. -.-
Im shocked nobody has brought up the fact that the LFD tool is also the thing to do for a 80 that wants to PVP too. Unless you are a hunter/mage/dk stepping into a BG for the first time is far better in full epics then the craftable blue pvp items, at this point in the xpac they suck and u will get one-shotted,epics will atleast let you kill people, until you get focused. The weapons are the key though, LFD lets you get high quality weapons/off-hands/shields etc very quickly, not to mention that enough badges will be earned to grap one or two epic pvp gearz. The trinkets and relics from badges are great for PVP. I have geared up 3 toons for pvp thru lfd and it never took me longer than 5 days so far and now all 3 of them are full bg epic'd and i have started Arena on my warrior now after only 2 weeks at 80 on him, LFD is awesome.
So how about some loots for reading wowhead...oh wait...
I think what's wrong with World of Warcraft (especially in WotLK) is the fact that Blizzard is following people. The proof of this is the Recruit-a-Friend. Ok... money... OKAY! But, for me, some of these acts (like easy gear) are just desperate ways to get people from private servers. What Blizzard wants? 1 billion subscribers? They have the world in their hands already! C'mon, give me THE GAME back!
Idk... how about gear for reading patch notes... Wait a second... the in game voice chat actually works? Go figure!
im not sure why then in game voice chat gets so much bs fori used to use it all the timei had problems with it but it wasnt sound quality and anytime i hear myself on ventriloit sounds like my nose is plug ed im betting most ppl who dis the in game vc have a bad sound card or a lousy comp/internet connection the new lfg thing is nice too bad u cant kick some1 from group now after finishing an instanceeven if they offline makes it kinda hard to re que with a good couple ppl from other realmsand the idea of waiting thru the first fifteen mins to boot a bad tank /heals is annoying some ppl just don't get the hint that they cant do stuff with there current gear and blame the group for there screw up
It's a Ptr image, the T4 Warlock helm was probably a placeholder back then.also..
I personally love this tool on my Tank, but hate it on my dps... It's a bit of a mixed feeling. On one hand, when i queue as tank i get a group in less than 5 seconds whereas on my dps, it takes about 10-20 minutes.
so you wanna say we are gonna get free loot if we use dungeon tool are we will have to get emblems again thil we get more and more and more and still dont have the best armor so we can go raids like ICC25HC
They might want to start handing out badges for player that play tanks successfully.Lack of good tanks is the biggest issue at the moment, imo.Queue time for Tank: 1 secondQueue time for Healer: 2 minsQueue time for DPS: 20-40 mins.And that's accounting for the hundreds of players that queue as tanks when they don't know a thing about tanking in order to get a group faster.I dunno how they could make it happen but it'd be worth it.Barns.
I agree . This is screwing me few times for now . Im playing wow more than 3 years ( 1.5 years on official Kil'rogg ) and they always do something easy . Example : First , naxxramas , it was pain to get into grp and also , you gotta pray to kill Anub . Than , they made the same badges to drop from normal instances ( i think they were named Badge of Valor ) . After they made Conquest to drop from normal instances ( 226 ilvl for everyone ! ) . Finaly they made Triumph ones little hard to get ( Only from ToC 10/ ToC 25 ) I was lucky that finally i can get a gear and nobody get better than me so easy . I was doing much raids , sometimes i didnt learn for school just to catch ToC 10 and now . The new system , badges etc ... That screwed me so much so i just stopped playing wow . If someone plays Horde on kil'rogg . My 2 chars are Jorexus and Zanmon , hunter and deathknight ;) Hope you like my post .
