I have no idea how many times people have complained about this, but I’m going to do it again. I’m tired of these retarks demanding ridiculous amounts of gear/achievements to go anywhere. (btw, that’s retard + jerk and I hadn’t noticed before now how much the “ret” from retard is like a certain spec of a certain OP class… anyways)
Demanding achievements from ulduar to get into ulduar is self-defeating. Not a single pug out there spamming in trade of LFG chat will let you come if you haven’t been there before. How are you supposed to get the achievement in the first place? If you ask them, they’ll say “go with your guild.” Well, I don’t know of any raiding guilds that will take you in without gear/achievements yada yada. They might make an exception for you if you have absolute best Naxx 25 gemmed/enchanted then maybe you might be able to get into an uld 10. You’ll still be “undergeared” in everyone else’s mind because they of course have hard mode gear or even t9 already.
Here’s the thing, when ulduar first came out no one could possibly have t8 or achievements already. Guilds had to do it the hard way in their nax gear, because that was all there was. But now that they have done it, now they demand that everyone else be as geared as they are or better because they just want to get it done easily/quickly and get their badges/loot/egos. This system really really does not help new players who are just hitting 80 to get into the raiding scene.
Solution? I have no idea. I thought I was done grinding when I got level 80, but no, now I just get the chance to grind emblems to get gear just to be allowed in a raid. Gnomeaggedon had a great post about this that I enjoyed/agreed with/cried at http://gnomeaggedon.net/2009/09/04/emblems-of-everything-fail-me/
Maybe I’ll just take Gnomie’s advice and level a shammy. Or a lock. I have seen some pretty sick animations of what I *think* is conflagrate, anyway some gigantic ball of demonic fire from a warlock that makes the inner mage in me envious.
