I had similar difficulty this weekend in just a Heroic Steamvaults. The tank mocked me the entire time for being under-geared. I'm a rogue in all blues and Midnight Leggings from Heroic SP (1300AP, 135+hit). Maybe I'm confused, but I thought that gear progression went: Regular -> Heroic -> Kara.Point being, if you have to PuG something, don't complain that someone is under-geared (or openly mock them). Maybe this isn't just a badge run for them, but a genuine attempt to gear up. If they are severely under-geared and in a tank/healer position, politely tell them so and offer to invite them again once geared.

We must be in the minority then. We actually enjoy bringing someone new to the game or an alt in horrible gear on a kara run or through a heroic.Why shard it if someone can use it? Does it really matter if you get a few less shards on a run, or it takes 15 minutes longer?You dont actually need 10 people to clear kara, and lets be honest 3 people can clear most heroics. A kara clear can take 2.5 hours even with 1 or 2 crappy geared people. 1 pally tank, a resto druid, and whatever other off healer(who can dps 80% of the time), and 7 dps and you are golden.Besides if you help out 1 or 2 people a run, you end up getting a little more respect on the server, and its amazing how easy it becomes to get results in the trade channel when you need something.A lot of times those players in blues are the ones driving your servers economy. Helping them get some gear that was going to become a shard, can pay dividends in return karma down the road.
