@splodesondeath I wouldn't say that rage is the only gear based resource. Really, energy is the only one that's (almost) not gear based. After playing feral kitty for a while (with bear off-spec) I changed my druid to a boomkin. I had almost a full sp set from heroic drops that no-one else needed. I couldn't do daily quests w/o running oom & spec'd into as much regen as I possibly could. Now I have over 30K mana in raid & the only time I run OOM is in the rare event that I dps a heroic & am simply spamming hurricane. The only reason I've spec'd OOC is because of set bonuses.On my warrior who's taken advantage of free triumphs, so is therefore essentially raid geared, I have to make judicious use of charge & intercept to stay ahead of itchy dps or I don't get there first & can not generate enough rage to generate the threat to generate the rage... ... ...@windstalker668 thanks for that clarification...I realized that I might have been misinterpreted which is why I restated it in my 2nd comment, to further expound...Personally, I like the feeling of running heroics in raid gear. Raids are fun because they're a challenge, heroics are fun because they're a race & the only challenge is when you pull that extra pack.When you're overgeared you should also be over-resourced. It shouldn't be a matter of do I have enough [insert resource] to get through this fight. But, rather, does the tank have enough skill to hold all of these packs while the dps aoerolls them down.Geared to content every encounter should require management of everything to overcome or there's no skill involved.
