A welfare epic would be a very good item that you can get without putting in time or effort. The only ones I can think of are auction house epics, and possibly BoP crafting epics. The only effort needed is that taken to get the gold. If you got gold, you got lewt.However, I don't think that even those are welfare epics. You could put that 1k of gold towards an epic flyer, consumables for raids, etc. So the opportunity cost is high. Same deal with BoP craftables. The main compenent there is still gold, because leveling the skill only takes you following a good 1-375 guide.Some epics are easier to get than others, but those are the exception and not the rule. I don't think that you can really have an entire set of great gear without putting in a good amount of effort. In general, such epics just serve as a way to let people get a foot in the door for upgrading their gear.
