I normally enjoy your columns, but I felt a little shortchanged here. When I saw the title, gearing your *casual or alt* shaman, I assumed you meant casual as in "Not raiding ICC 10 and 25 every week."To me, Casual means heroics, badges of Triumph, and Frost badges from random heroics and VOA.Think about it, if someone is raiding Icecrown, do they really have any problems getting geared up?

Love your columns, Rich, but this is right, after reading this I just felt depressed at the things i will never have.

Oh... je je je... I have most of the things he stated on that list, the 264 lvl ones... XD. I even have the Bracer in heroic flavor.He didn't mention the crafted gear, which is very good... and keep that some of those items are BoE... so... if you are not a serious raider but a serious AH seller... you might get some good loot there too.Any way... just wanted to rub it in. Whats the point of having a gear score above 6,000 if you can't rub it in someone else's face. XPJoke... of course.

I'd generally call anything within the first wing of ICC and maybe fester/rot fair game for casuals because they can generally be cleared in a pug and aren't terribly difficult to allocate time for. I definitely wouldn't have minded him mentioning the ToC or ICC crafted gear as well as gear from the ICC heroics.When I gear my alts I like to think of it as "what can I accomplish on my own or with a little help?" This ends up with me only really aiming for crafted gear and ilvl 232 (t9/ICC heroics) items with a few 245s from emblems of triumph. When I can either find a pug or get an alt run with my guild I can fill in some slots with ICC gear, but it's definitely just that - filling in.
