I guess that takes the worry out of me going to those new 5 mans before I would be ready for them.

It drops ilevel 232, so arguably you should be fine with 219 or 226 gear. After all the basic idea is to equip drops rather than DE them because you have no use for a downgrade.

That said, getting most (but not all) of the 3.2.2 emblem gear (ilevel 226), crafting all four pieces of tank-plate and getting everything needed from five-mans (Essence of Gossamer, Black Heart plus all that ToC 5 hc has to offer) I landed at 34k+ health unbuffed on my alt pally tank. Said tank gems for socket-bonuses, 100% hybrid-gems for non-blue sockets, so I guess I could squeeze out another 80:ish stamina if I wanted, but I don't :D

This should definitely be enough, but sure, a wipe or two per instance, with four other people in similar gear, should be considered a fair enough cost for the neat upgrades these instances reward you with. At least if the entire party is comparatively green to the content.

Regarding that gear check thing, does it only do that if you pick the "Random dungeon" option?

May be turning my account back on tomorrow. Getting paid. My brother, who is so addicted to WoW it's scary, leaves me voice mail after voice mail each morning about WoW as he drives his son to school. Part me of me is interested in them and part of me gets turned off to ever play WoW again. Haha. Still wiht 3 weeks of school break upon me, I am more tempted than ever.

Does Cataclysm have any release projection whatsoever?

Thanks.


I don't know if you were serious about Cataclysm but DAMN I hope you were. Next Christmas would be perfect for me. Seriously. I'll be completely done at Animation Mentor.

I doubt they would take that long though.

Anyway thanks again for the info. =)

Well, mostly when using the LFG tool we've had me tank and healer and 1-2 decent dps, we've filled up with dps from the LFG. The other day we got a gearscore 3200 DK for Pit of Saron hc, so I dunno about the gear check thing. But that's the only time it happened for me, but I've yet to get the achieve for pugging with 10 random people.

My brother warned me the game has turned into a numbers game more than ever. That whole gear score thing. Yuck. I couldn't care less about numbers.

Does anyone play video games to...oh I don't know...have fun anymore?

For me (theorycrafting) numbers are what make the game fun, though gearscore is definitely not one of those.

[edit]
missing one word can change the whole meaning :s

to me, gearscore is just an easier way to say "I am in full T9" or "I am in 5m heroic gear"

I suppose I should ask how I even read/use a gear score and what do I want to look for or whatever?

Even though I don't care about this stuff, I'm sure others will so I guess I better know it.

We got it around WotLK's release, but it didn't start doing a ton of damage until... 3.2?
