Feral tank set, Feral DPS set, Heal set, and at least a little bit of a Boomkin set. Could be a LOT of badges lol!Seriously though, I would love to see this system taken one step further:Raid bosses drop no gear, just badges, but not the badges we have now. There would have to be Tier 4 badges, Tier 5 badges, etc. It does seem pretty silly that we can run Karazhan to get Tier 6 quality gear.This would have to be taken even one step further I think. Killing Lurker over and over should not result in Vashj's loot. There would have to be a boss specific token also required for some pieces of gear.

I agree that would be a good way to do. Keep the bosses having some (but not many) loot drops but have them all drop T4-T6 level "badges". You do the system like the Badge system in place now. T4 stuff stuff requires T4 badges, T5 requires the T4 badges. Also have the ability to turn level badges into higher level ones, say 5 T4 badges equal 1 T5 and 5 T5 = 1 T6. Heck, might as well do Dungeon badges for the D3 stuff.It allows for steady progression and gives you the ability to do get t5 and t6 equivalent gear from doing lower level stuff, but it just takes awhile. I have a sneaking suspicion that they are heading more and more in that direction. It would definitely open up raiding to more people. No more hoping for a random drop and having people in various states of gearing in a raid. People will be closer together in gear/

Yes, 1,000% yes! Badges/tokens for gear is the best way to go. If they want to throw in a random orange drop at the top level, that's fine by me, but for the regular people hacking away in a raid day in and day out badges are the way to go.

I like that idea too but that would just be adding grind upon grind. Now instead of excitement right after a boss kill and everyone yelling over vent "what dropped, what dropped???" people will starting saying, " great 4392 badges to go till I can get Epic X"
