Blizzard: We didn't like to force people to grind rep for shoulder/helm enchants

#1KarmicDragon1Posted 10/9/2012 5:11:25 AM
... So we're gonna force people to grind rep to be able to buy VP gear instead.

Flawless logic.

VP gear isn't at all necessary to progression. It's just an option for those who'd prefer not to LFR or raid regularly. The annoying part is the gating on the crafting recipes

It's almost impossible to get fully heroic geared.

Lies, my drood is missing only two pieces, and only because I'm not running the dungeons until i get my achievements in the others.

I though i put you in my ignore list after your repeated trolling in GW2 forums, i guess you just troll wherever the sun shines.

I was fully heroic geared by the third day of the expac. At this point I'm wearing 5 crafted epics and looking forward to some brain damage in LFR before main raid tonight.

I've done 35 heroic runs on my paladin and even with the two Brewfest trinkets, and the epic sword from one of the first two instances (in heroix mode), I'm still at ilvl 454.

Lies, my priest has been running 6 heroics a day and I'm still missing 9 pieces.

Your priest not being fully geared is not evidence of it being "impossible" to gear up.

For the record, my guardian druid has a 464 item level as of this morning, thanks to a tier piece dropping off Anger and brewfest trinkets from Coren. I only have two sub-463 pieces, my rings are the justice point ones.

Got 468 on my lock, but due to me being a human, wich lets me buy the shado'pan cloak already, having engineering goggles, a brewfest trinket, and tier gloves from the Sha.
