Get a rope
There are days where you feel like going back to the old west, where the law was clear, and more often was decided when someone said “draw” than when a jury said guilty.
Last night, I hopped on after doing a bunch of work around the house, and discovered that Sarth was the weekly. That is an easy fist full of badges. Saw a guy asking for more people for a sarth run, and wanted to whisper spec and stats. So I tossed out my modest boomkin spec and naxx25 gearing (around 4k gearscore) and said i was ready, willing and able.
Well, he kept spamming trade chat for LFM but modified his spam to say was doing sarth 3d and needed a minimum 5k gearscore/6k dps. A debate ensued over gearscore vs skill (once again the trade trolls took over) and someone else piped up saying that they didn’t give a rats hind end about gearscores, and were creating their own run. So, I landed a spot in that run and managed the volcano acheivement. No loot for me, but i topped enough badges to get me a third peice (the leggings) of my triumph badge feral gear tier set. (and I still have two peice bonus for feral pvp triumph set. I was stupid and didn’t know to go to the leather goods vendor with triumph badges, spending them at the triumph vendor instead.. /facepalm) so now 60 triumphs to go to finish my feral set, and I can start updating my balance set from naxx 25 to something more powerful.
On to the point of my post.. It does not take a bloody gearscore of 5000+ to handle sarth, I understand that you need a lot of dps to handle the adds on 3d mode, but people were doing it long before Uldar, TOC, and ICC gear was available. It is redonkulous to require levels of gearscore that are that much higher than the content you are trying to do. It like requiring a full raid for hogger.. (actually did that once for laughs)
In other news, saturday night, my guild started dipping their toes in the raid pool, wanted to snare some gear for some new 80’s so we did patchwerk and spider wing. we were all quite rusty (those of us that had been there before) and had some difficulty with anub. (no not a noob..) But after the bettle from hell dropped, the rest of the spider wing was a cakewalk. Patchwerk is also sorta ez mode, but we tried to face grobbulus afterward… not a good fight to cut newbies teeth in on.
Well, other than wanting to string up someone for having insane raid requirements, was a good night.
