Dec 17th 2009 10:08AM People who play alts over those who don't will have large advantage when new tier of loot comes out. Unless only previous level gear is change to BoA, then you will have people running instances with alts for badges & drops, inorder to power gear their mains.
I don't play an alt, and I think it would imbalance things if people could shift Frost badges to mains in order to get tier gear faster.
All that is needed is to make more BoA/BoE Badge loot, so you can buy it with your main, and send to alt. Each patch can add in some items from old content as BoA, in the form of heirlooms
