"And I am sorry.. but after paying for the game itself, and paying 15.00 a month, being able to see the content you PAID for IS a RIGHT, as much as you hardcore elitist raider jerks deny it. This is an game. A game is supposed to be fun, not work. "As someone who has both raided and taken breaks from raiding to just "mess around", pvp or try (and fail) to level fishing, I'm a bit baffled by this attitude of entitlement that some people have. Sure, you pay for the game and you have the right to see content--at the level you put in the effort though.Just because I buy really nice tennis shoes and play pick up basketball games on a weekly basis does not mean I have a right to be in the NBA playoffs, does it? And just because I have some reasonably nice soccer cleats and pay dues to participate in city league games doesn't entitle me to be in the World Cup, does it? No, of course not.Those of us with more extensive raiding experience are posting our opinions, and our perspective is just as valid as those who are saying use the least or nothing at all (in the case of enchants). You are the min, we are the max, just like weekly basketball pickup games or city league are the min and NBA playoffs and World Cup are the max. Shall we now complain about elitists in those areas as well?With attunements dropped in all the content, quite honestly this person could jump into Kara and realize he actually loves raiding and wants to check out 25 mans. In that case, he might just want to enchant his gear reasonably well (and at very little cost with dailies so abundant), and he might just want to use blue quality gems. That will actually increase his options, especially if he plays on a server where pug Gruul's runs are common--the gear check before being allowed into a run like that will go much smoother if his gear shows thoughtfulness and intelligent choices.
