I completely agree that the idea of wanted 'geared' players for naxx 10/25 or os10/25 is a silly idea.I had an unbeleiveablly hard time getting into a raid on my DK alt. I had decent gear....all crafted and heroic epics, as well as the mirror of truth from badge.I also had the sword from argent tourny seals. The rest of my gear was either heroic, quest or crafted blues. I would try to remind people that I had better gear at that time then they did on thier mains going into those raids...but it didnt matter. The only way I could get a group was have them look up my main, who is 4/5 8.5 and cleared all content except yogg (not counting hard modes either). An example of how silly it has gotten. The members of my guild that were not saved from the guild run got a partial pug of H VoA togather. I remember someone threatening to leave the group if i was not removed due to my gear. After we cleared VoA I linked the recount dps to him...the one that showed me in 'crap' gear beat him out on dps by about 1.2k, even though he was in his full naxx 25 gear.I just wish people would remember that gear is not the end all be all. Things like knowing the fights, knowing your class and your skill can far and away make up for any gear shortcomings a toon may have.
