Meh, the conquest changes aren't as big as everyone thinks.I'm an average raider - ie, if you looked at me 2 months before ulduar came out I'd have mostly BiS, but nothing special now days. I have 1 piece of 8.5 I can't use due to set bonus issues but meh.With the EoC becoming the standard, even if my 150 odd badges I have on me currently all got changed, I'd buy the 2 set pieces and that would be it - the rest are sidegrades even with the higher ilvl. The non-tier pants for instance have like 112 stamina on them.. I'm a rogue! I don't CARE about stamina and it's chewing up the item budget.The other items in there are much the same. The EoC badge system is basically thus: if you can't get the upgrade any other way, it's better then nothing (minus the tier pieces of course).. What it'll mostly do IMO is kill the market for runed orbs - sell all you have ASAP cause those things are going to drop down to 100g a piece within a month or 2 of 3.2... even if they don't, they sure won't be 1k+ anymore. Cash in while you still can!Personally I'll just clear naxx 10 (3 hours, 15 badges), naxx 25 (4 hours, another 15), OS 10 and 25 (, VoA 10 and 25 and in the space of one week I'll have almost 40 badges just from raids.. run Gun'Drak and a couple other heroics with my raid (less then an hour per instance) for a few days and there's one set piece.. do it again next week, or just run the heroics a few more times and there's my second. Then I'll just run the daily heroic for the triumph badges to build up.So yeah, it'll get me a bit more damage but it's nothing spectacularly game changing. Good move from blizz IMO.
