I love how people get on here and bash raiders for having no life. Why don't spend your limited playtime running a 25 man once a week instead of leveling alts and talking about Chuck Norris in trade. WOW is a game like baseball. Raiding is like the major leagues and non raiding is like t-ball. Get the picture?

WoW is not like baseball.

Can you possibly be more pompous?Raiding is fun sometimes, but it should not be the end all of WOW content. Blizzard realizes this, and is allowing those who don't have the time or desire to raid to acquire some decent gear. Anyone who has a problem with that is an elitist ass.

I welcome this change because I'm hoping that it will shut up raiders who feel superior and entitled to special treatment because of their gear. I'm not saying you're one of those, but hell, your comment was sure steering that way.Just because I choose not to sink hours into raiding does not make me a "t-ball" player.
You are right - WoW is actually interesting.

Thanks for summing up the arrogant, idiot raider mentality in one simple, easy to read post. I actually hope you don't realize what an utter jackass you come across as, because right now you're one big public service campaign that reinforces the reason why so many players think raiders are jerks.

There doesn't seem to be many people defending against the "OMG RAIDERS NEED A LIFE""RAIDERS ARE SOCIALLY INSECURE PEOPLE WHO NEED PIXELS TO CONVINCE THEMSELVES OF THEIR SELF WORTH"The reason people are mad is because it simply is not fair to nerf the amount of effort just to "make things more accessible".If you bought a car, and the next day it's price was cut in half, you'd be angry as well. It's the same premise. EVERYONE DOES IT.

@Darkthun - I got some bad news for you...when you buy a new car it depreciates about 25% of its value the second you drive it off a lot. That is the way of the world.

@Darkthun - And what if the price doubles? I bet you won't go there and pay the amount.That you feel angry and don't enjoy what you got is your problem so please STFU.

@ Elo "Why don't spend your limited playtime running a 25 man once a week instead of leveling alts and talking about Chuck Norris in trade."Because Leveling 'alts' is where it's at. And just like your raiding it takes serious effort. I see people with shiny 280% mounts everyday and want one and people probably wonder why I don't have one ...The reason is I've spent what you spent for that mount several times over buying the other mounts for 10 toons. EFFORT. And without AH price gouging I might add. Have just about every blue I've seen drop in one of my toons banks somewhere. Greens disenchanted or vendored. @Dartkun "The reason people are mad is because it simply is not fair to nerf the amount of effort just to "make things more accessible".With 3.2 and before I'm going to have to / have had to deal with the same thing. Raided BC pre raid / heroic nerfs on two toons geared well enough to get into the next tier except for having my toon of choice feral tank thrown completely off balance in conjunction with the release of the newest content. So I thought I'd have a failsafe should the same thing ever happen again in the form of other classes to fall back on. Anyway So yeah expansion came out and all of a sudden everyone could level 10-20% faster (?) and without the stress of having to constantly upgrade gear as they leveled. I didn't complain, should i roll ten horde I'll enjoy the benefit myself. When you people realize the benefit and ease of alts, you'll be doing so faster and cheaper (a HELL OF A LOT CHEAPER) than I did. again not complaining rolling horde I could benefit from this. And like that when all the current end game content goes sour for you and you want to level alts you'll be happy not to rely on RNG or loot allocation for SOME of the best gear. I really don't want to count but will 60% mounts x 9 100% mounts x 9 flying REG x 4 the prices of which will all be reduced substantially next patch. So I have a complaint after all my TG warrior feels like he's DW 2h nerf bats even though in actuallity they're deep thunder and stormherald with other higher end gear including swiftsteel shoulders ...tell me that's fair, that my level 68 balance druid likely out dps' him.
