Mar 27th 2008 2:31PM The term "welfare epics" is nothing but snobbery at its best. I currently have 3 70s on mannoroth, and while one is mostly season 3, the others have a smattering of S1 and S2 arena gear.
Did I not "earn" those epics by fighting my ass off in battlegrounds? They sure were not handed to me for free.
This term was constructed by people that feel guilty for spending three (or more) entire nights of their week raiding for items they may, or may not even get.
Yes, I agree they are easier to get than BT or ZA gear, but to say that they're free or nearly free is insulting to those that work to get them.

Massive HOTs, stealth, snare removal AND cyclone (Which seems to have no diminishing returns when its cast on me over and over). Suck it up and be glad that's the only nerf your OP butts are getting.
