Quite frankly, regardless of how Blizzard ends up going with the badge system, Naxx raiders *shouldn't* be able to get T8/T9 quality loot just from doing Naxx.Why?Because doing higher level content loses a lot of its glamour and incentive if there aren't significantly better rewards from doing so. I know it was fairly annoying to work my way up from Kara to T6, finally get my hands on the healing mace off Kaz'rogal after weeks and weeks, and then have the new items become available off the badge vendor and seeing people who would flounder in a T6/Sunwell environment getting gear that's almost as good as my own. Basically, was there really a point to getting that mace in the end, when one become much more easily obtainable via heroics and Karazhan?And personally, I feel a 10 to 1 upgrade ratio is fine. You've got to remember that it's not just Naxx you're getting those badges from - it's every single heroics. Y'know, all those heroics you keep doing after you get all the loot you need from them, in order to complete achievements and get rep. Having an upgrade system with the badges meaning heroics will remain viable for quite a bit longer than they would otherwise.
