A good point. and one which sparks a "that reminds me"I leveled two toons when Cata went live: a Warrior tank and my main, a Paladin tank.My Paladin is a Blacksmith (both are miners) so I was able to level my smithing fairly quickly. But I was more than a little put out to discover that I while I could craft DPS plate quite early on ... I couldn't make any tank gear of the same ilevel.So as a tank I had no choice but to enter my first Cata 5 man (a guild run) significantly less geared than my guildies who were wearing crafted gear. After numerous normal runs with the (to be expected) crappy drops my guildies were all desperate to run Heroics ... so I started LFDing normals to grind JP and faction rep to speed my gearing up.In other words I had to run the 5 man normals much more often than my DPS mates to end up at the same place they were.Eventually we got to the point where we started doing heroics - but by that time I was well and truly sick of the content.At the same time our guild imploded (due to unrelated issues) and after things had settled down I'd discovered a complete lack of interest in the PvE content. So now I'm doing BGs where I can gear as quickly (or slowly) as anyone else and not be penalised by Blizard because I choose to play Prot.
