Aah, there is potential casual player pit here and I hope Blizz designers aren't that stupid that they actually make this mistake, again.Thats of course limiting gear options for casuals and alts. Stripping vendors from good gear and making it only obtainable from raids (HC gear will follow but just at the end of the expansion unfortunately).There are lots of players who don't have that 1,5h - 2h slot uninterrupted game time and hence cannot raid but still would like to get good enough gear for their toons (doesn't have to be raid level gear either but close) to be able to join raids now and then.Heck, even getting to TolBar kinda raid for FarmLootBosses reguires gear that many players are not getting if this is implemented like devs say.I hate to see how they kick casual to the baals again after miserable Cata experience, didn't they learn anything? Rant over and out.

How exactly was Cata miserable for casuals? Let's see:1. Raid Finder implemented A. not only can you look like a raider, but you actually see all the content2. Heroics are back to 20-minute roflstomp adventures3. gearing up to ilvl 397 is time consuming, but relatively painless if you are dedicatedAnd I have a question for your statement. You mention that a lot of folks don't have the time to raid but would like to be raid ready if they get the chance now and again. So from time to time you DO have the opportunity to run LFR. OK, so go run it. It's not going anywhere from the look of things. I can't imagine they'll keep the LFR but make hitting the gear threshold so arduous that it will take months to get there.Cmon, if you're going to bash on something at least provide some decent arguments.
