It's a damn good thing they're not converting Heroisms to Conquest come 3.2, and anyone who believes otherwise needs to step back and actually consider how this would affect progression. Come 3.2, Heroics and old raids are becoming equivalent to Ulduar in terms of gear (at least for a few pieces). I have no problem with this, as they're releasing Tier 9 gear via the Coliseum.If, however, they were to convert other badges to Conquests come 3.2, that would make Heroics and other raids equal to Ulduar now. People (including people who never even set foot in Ulduar) would just farm Heroics now for insta-226 gear when the patch drops. That's not progression, that's making early lvl 80 content equal to progression content, and that is not how this game works.I think the 3.2 Emblem change (as it is now) is an excellent decision on Blizzard's part and will help alleviate some of the gear gap that new 80s find themselves facing around this time. Converting badges to Conquests would just be messed up though.
