This gear check thing is really getting out of hand.I understand if you're pugging Kara, you're not going to be successful with out a certain level of gear. I think on heroics, depends - some people are looking to upgrade their gear in a heroic to get to Kara. People should have room to be more forgiving.Where I think this is getting crazy is I'm starting to see gear checks on some of the regular lv 70 instances like Magisters Terrace. People are not looking for skill in their players anymore they want I-win buttons. Which is starting to make pugging more of a pain.My biggest problem with instances in Burning Crusade is that blizz made some things a little to gear dependent and that's warped a lot of peoples thinking.

@ Geo LaraExcept in using MgT on normal as your example of people getting Armory'd, you are attempting to put MgT on the same difficulty level as normal Mechanar (which many will agree is easy as heck given a half-decent group) ; even well-geared groups who don't know the instance find MgT hard on normal. Not super-hard, but still a fun mini-challenge in preparation for the heroic. Without people who know what to do when the "OH CRAP" moment hits, a newly minted 70 would die if mobs started running around crazily.I refuse to continue the run if the group wipes three times before the third boss is even reached. If they can't handle the 5-pulls, there's no way they could handle Delrissa and the PVP-style fight or even Kael.Armory people for that instance, but that's it.The experiences that we gain in running the lower level stuff and learning to play our classes is what makes someone a good player. Blizz unfortunately has made it a bit too easy to level up to 70 without really learning the mechanics of what we're playing.
