Reforging is simultaneously one of the best and worst features to be introduced to the game. Unfortunately what was a great concept has turned into "let's let you get capped on the things you need (read: uninteresting stats such as hit and expertise) then suck away your gold every time you get an upgrade."Bliz should get rid of it entirely. Let tier pieces give you the stats you have to have to do your job, then let off set pieces, weapons, etc... provide you with the interesting stats you need to make decisions about.

I really don't see your concept on how it is one of the worst things to come to wow. Gold is so easy to come by now that reforging should barely be making a dent into your piggy bank (unless you are constantly spending it on stuff). Plus, reforging stats for something more favorable is FAR more attractive than replacing my gems to hit caps. Even if I am the only person here who disagrees with you on WoW Insider, it is far too late for Blizzard to just remove it from the game. It has become too much of a staple for people, no matter if they like it or not.

@sejastwd -Nobody forces you to use reforging.If you have access to the best gear in the game and think you do not need it - DO NOT USE IT, but please don't try to take away a feature that players HAVED used (for good or for bad).I am not a raider and I have reforged at times, to achive certain stats (like the hit cap I needed for the content I play).The equivalent to what you say is that the AH is a gold sink (since people spend gold in it) so let's take it out. Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it?This is on top of the fact that gold sinks are good for the game overall by lowering the inflation rate (but this may be too technical for someone who just wants the "simple life" of tier gear that is so easy to get ... ).
