Wonk has a very good point, but puts it across badly.In order to do 'your share' in Ulduar raids you need to have raided Naxxramas. In order to raid Naxxramas you need to have done heroics / crafted epics / bought BoE drops off the AH. All this comes down to 1 word: Effort.Currently Ulduar 25 bosses drop 25 Emblem of Conquest (1 for each player).In 3.2 heroic bosses will drop 5 Emblemt of Conquest (1 for each player).No heroic boss is difficult enough or requires enough from players in terms of skill and gear to warrant dropping 1 Emblems of Conquest, let alone 5.I do raid for fun, but, just like Wonk, I put a lot of work into getting my character this good. It isn't right that someone should need to put significantly less work into theirs to get to the same level as mine. In more abstract terms: No character running heroics for gear should be able to do and become as well geared as a character doing the 2nd tier of raids. Alternatively: Running heroics should not enable anyone to skip an entire tier of raiding.@Chunkchunk: You seem to be under the impression that completing any heroic in WotLK requires hard work. Even in blues this isn't true.I'm not bashing Casuals here. If you're not playing the game as much as me, for ANY reason, that's your choice and I respect it. I'm bashing the bad players (not ones that make occasional mistakes, the people who are genuinely bad at this game) don't deserve good gear full stop and will get good gear because of this change.
