"Anyway, I welcome the reset. It helps close the gear-gap that has formed, and levels the playing field for people who haven't been 70 for as long as others."I think that's one thing that bothers some people. A new 70 and a long time 70 both get reset. EXCEPT... that's not really true. I'll have a LOT easier time in Northrend on my fully epicced rogue than the new 70 rogue in greens and a few blues. So I don't mind the reset. I *do* wish that some of the things I was replacing epics with were blues vs greens. I dunno, it just seems the epics are less... well.. epic. But really, it's no big deal. Gear is just a way to make your toon more capable, nothing more.

Yeah my new character with her crappy gear is going to have a hard time in Northrend for like 5 quests (2-3 hours) until I'm basically wearing tier 6. Next?And for the healers and all our epic gear? I have a resto druid - I don't level resto with healing gear - so actually I'm kinda starting out where I left off when I hit lvl 70 :( (asides from which welfare drops I got out of kara when no-one else wanted them).

Sure... because you won't be wear the equivalent of T6 in 5 quests. The HFP quests don't put you in the equivalent of T3 after all... Read above... top level epics lasted many folks well into their 60s in TBC and I imagine that very good epics from TBC will last us well into our 70s in LK. Might be 73, might be 76. What the gear reset does, though, is give people who DON'T have raid gear a way to move directly from quest greens and some blues to upgrade. I'm not sure I agree that mobs at 71 in Northrend really should be that much more challenging than the 70s in Outland. After all, it's a one level difference. For consistency reasons I think the difficulty should be smoother, but, meh. It will be what it will be.
