Seriously, this column's definition of "casual" is pretty insulting.First thing I tell anyone playing any class new to 80 is the order you can count on gear while still owning your own soul, by source:1) Emblems. The only barrier between you and emblem gear is time.2) 5-man loot. You can have a daily shot at this. Run with friends to increase your chances.3) The auction house. Sadly this dynamic goes from "entry level" (currently largely obsolete given the current state of the two previous sources) to "OMG expensive", which isn't an issue to all, but is to many."Banking" on raid loot, of any level, as a "gearing up" mindset is erroneous and horrible advice. Looking at Garfrost and saying "he has my *item*"is an entirely different and far more sane ballgame than looking at a current raid boss with the same idea.What this article refers to is not casual, but soul-suckingly chained to dice you only get to roll, at best, once a week. That's not a road, that's a destination. It is this lack of "respect" for raid content that is at the core of so many problems with WoW and its community.Cataclysm can't come fast enough.omedon666.livejournal.com

CRAFTING! *facepalm*Thank you, titusx, for reminding me of the other reliable source... Which is SORTA covered by emblems and the AH, but not completely.
