This is totally right. I don't look at dps meters during the majority of heroics (if monsters are blowing up in record time sometimes I look just for a laugh). Gearscore for heroics is ridiculous. For Halls of Reflection I can understand why people want a tank geared to a certain level (the trash in that place hits harder than the bosses in regular mode ToC and you only have one healer) but for heroics that launched with Wrath, we *all* used to do those in blues and greens, and there is no reason someone with blues and greens should be looked down upon now. If you think you can't win heroic Nexus because your tank only has 24k unbuffed health or because your dps only does 1.5k then the problem isn't your teammates' gearscores, the problem is your confidence.

"but for heroics that launched with Wrath, we *all* used to do those in blues and greens, and there is no reason someone with blues and greens should be looked down upon now. "This cannot be stressed enough.25k health on a tank is not "low" for heroics. It's not even low for Naxxramas.Yet more times than I can count, I've heard in almost every run someone bitch to me or other tanks that--for example, my 30k health--is too low. Many times kicking that tank even when they are performing admirably.IMO the "bads" aren't the ones who jump into heroics in blues and greens. The "bads" are the ones who are so secure in their incompetence that they simply refuse to do any content that they or any member of their group doesn't SIGNIFICANTLY out-gear.And yes, someone in an average ilvl of 200 in epics and blues does, in fact, significantly out-gear the Wrath-classic heroics.
