The "reining in" you speak of is exactly what has my circle of heroic running buddies turning all of their frost emblems in for primordial saronite (which auction for "raiders with way too much money" prices), and taking a much more relaxed approach to gearing our many alts. Grinding heroics for a month and a half for a 6ilvl upgrade helm is just nuts when the first item with mastery will likely be a "cataclysmic" upgrade. This late in the game, it's all about "good enough is good enough", and hoarding cash for the next big moneysink/riding level for us.

@PicOh, we know, most of us also have other games to entertain us as well, but for the WoW portion of our time, a few more stats are inferior to a nice gold hoarde for when the expansion hits, considering we have all these alts to feed. It also extends the "fun and challenging" lifespan of the 5-mans we enjoy running. :)That's really a funny part about the arms race to be honest: everyone rushing to be able to say they've done everything. Cataclysm's so far away, relax people! ;)

I think a relaxed approach to alt-gearing is healthy. Does your alt really need to be able to 10k DPS instead of 8k? Not really.

You know, i was saving up for one of those 50 EoF cloaks, but making 4k gold instead is quite tempting. It's not like I raid and I'm already overgeared for heroics.....Hmm, primordial saronite it is!
