I'd love to see emblems become BoA.At the moment my hunter and my DK are my 80's and I have a few lower level characters.Sometimes I like running heroics and at other times I like levelling.At the moment though both my Dk and Hunter are at the point that I don't benefit from collecting emblems so I am exclusively levelling.Only problem is levelling gets boring after a bit but since there isn't any benefit from my doing heroics I can't mix up gameplay.If emblems were BoA I could go mix it up with levelling and heroics instead of just grinding levels. It'd give me a bit more variety in my day to day routine.

I suspect it would actually reduce variety. Instead of running your 75 through some nonheroics, your fresh 80 through some early heroics, and your main through the frozen halls heroics, the best way to get loot would be to exclusively play your main and faceroll all the heroics to farm emblems for your alts. Why play the alt himself if doing so only decreases the rate at which you can earn upgrades?

@ LilBansheeThe reason, I think, they haven't made emblems or emblem gear BoA, is because they *Want you to learn to play that character* It'd be almost worst that eBay'd toons. Sure, you quested, perhaps even instance leveled since level 1 (or 55 for a DK)... but unless you get in the played time and get some experience and develop your knee-jerk reactions of when to use your "OH SH*T!" buttons, etc. it's just not going to be the same. When my Paladin hit 80, I immediately amassed a large quantity of Holy gear in regular ToC (depsite being prot) so I figured, I would heal heroics until I got good enough prot gear to tank. While I did ok, (I'd had holy as my dual spec since 68 so it wasn't like I hadn't done it before), there was a few times i knew that if i had just known a little more, been a little more prepared, I could have prevented such and such (death of a player, a wipe, stunned a mob heading for a clothie, etc.)That said, I think that it wouldn't hurt to let outdated level 70 Badges of Justice to be BoA... it's a tad bit of a grey area honestly, and since some level 80 classes can solo a good chunk of BC content, it might be too much to ask. But given it take time and effort or friends to help ya farm them up if you don't have any, it just might be permissable. Frankly, I wish they would, at least for the "crap" original Badge gear like trinkets and emblems, cloaks, etc. since I know when my various alts hit Northrend, they still had Carrot on a Stick for a trink cuz they had nothing else due to luck or circumstance, and idols/totems/relics are virtually nonexsistant for some.
