Please tell me a pvp trinket isn't necessary for the champions. I thought we got away from the Required PvP for raiding gear bullshit in TBC. I also don't know where I'd put gouge or blind on my toolbar, but I can learn to use them, I guess.

It's not required to have PvP trink but it helps. My guild has me (and usually a warlock) focusing the druid healer when we get him, alternating our his cc's and my KS/Blind/Kick, and having my trinket helps me get out of roots or whatever else CC the Faction Champs throw at me.

Trinket is, thankfully, not required. It can help occasionally, but it's certainly not necessary! We've downed Champs several times in PvE gear (although several people do switch to a PvP spec, eg. Shadowfury Warlocks).

PvP gear is not required, but i think i remember reading back in BC that it was assumed everyone would have the trinket. Hence fights like Winterchill... Heck, DKs get one to start with. Now i hate PVP, but i dont think its too much for a raiding guild to ask for a member to run one wintergrasp and get the pvp trinket. The only fight we really have problems with is the faction champions, because most of us are not PVPers. We usually have 2-3 rogues raiding and weve had good success with each of us taking the 2nd and 3rd healers and keeping them locked down while everyone focuses on the first healer.

"I also don't know where I'd put gouge or blind on my toolbar, but I can learn to use them, I guess."sigh. You have no idea how hard it is to be a raid leader when people say stuff like this. at least you guess you can learn how to use your abilities, which is more than some
