Dec 31st 2009 9:45AM I will side with the author on this, because I too become disappointed when I see "poorly" geared tanks in my daily random heroic run. Not to say that he doesn't have the gear to do the instance. He does. The problem is that currently DPS is getting so high that a tank with lower level gear is incapable of holding threat. Often times I resort to standing around twiddling my thumbs because I'm pushing the 125% threat cap for pulling aggro, and my only threat reducing ability (Invisibility) is still on CD from the last time I was pushing threat.
And it's not like I'm using a high-threat spec. Arcane is about as low as it comes for a mage. It's just that once the gear level is there, you need someone that is going to be able to push out the TPS.
And as for the previous comment about the elitists who should go back to ICC, there are very limited sources of Frost emblems right now. Those of us raiding will take them anyway we can.

Search Admir vs Preystalker on Youtube.
You'll hear our good friend Preystalker the hunter yelling the same type of crap at Admir, the GM of Final Chapter.

Preystalker is a well known noob and ninja on our server. He's been known to start pug raids, and then make people pay him gold to get the items.
Jan 9th 2009 9:18AM Always drives me nuts when people consider the only way of getting Emblems/Badges is from Naxx/Kara. The five man heroics are there, there's a lot of them, and they give plenty of badges. Especially when combined with daily heroic quests. Personally I've already purchased all my 10 man gear emblem gear, and my 200 emblem mount, and I STILL have badges piling up. I welcome this change wholeheartedly.
