2200 Rating Weapon Availability* Updated 2/22

Current Players in 25 man raiding guilds with access to at least TWO bosses that drop 372 PvE weapons: 10175


Problem with this number is it assumes everyone in a 25man guild has access to those bosses and not just the active raid group (which given the changes to guilds grabbing everyone they can to level is a BIG assumption).

Current players in 10 man raiding guilds with access to at least TWO bosses that drop 372 PvE Weapons: 980


This number is probably reasonably accurate as most 10 man guilds tend to have smaller rosters.


You are aware he multiplied the number of 25m guilds by 25, and the number of 10m guilds by 10, right? lol?

So if anything, there are a lot MORE people with access because 25m guilds carry more than 25 raiders and 10m guilds probably carry a few more than 10 raiders.

I posted this in another thread but wanted to post here as well so everyone is aware:

I'll be brief and direct. The PvP item vendors were a little slow on stocking their shelves. They should have them restocked shortly (give or take a few extra if need be.)

They should have these weapons available very soon. We'll keep an eye on things should there be further delays.

Ever been in a 25man raiding guild? Most won't carry people for gear this early in an expansion/raid content. Their core people are still gearing up and aren't going to let a scrub who comes for a title/achievement have gear.

10man guilds generally won't carry ANYONE. They simply can't afford to and still down content.

Irregardless WoW's focus is PvE not PvP.

So the pve is to hard that peoeple cant down content fast enough....u know theres these 372 pvp weapons that might be able to help them....to bad their not in game. If ur logic is that you dont want pevers haveing to pvp.

"We of course don’t want players who are pursuing PvE content to feel as though they must engage in heavy PvP to obtain these weapons in order to be competitive or successful."

Yet you've also said that 2200 is mabey a bit to easy to get in Rbgs. Mabey just mabey you could take the easy solution and just let the pvers have the option of doing these not so hard Rbgs and what that 1-2 slot upgrade might help ur pve progession problem. Not like you HAVE to go get them (content pushing guilds who MIGHT require this have already cleared their stuff.) Not to mention i think 4/5 (random numbers) of the pve guilds would rather spend 4/4 nights working on progression rather then what 3/4 and have a 4th day where all ur raiders take off to pvp.

Its not like say proffs or reps that you HAVE to grind n level. I just dont get it ur pve is to hard....yet your disallowing them from having acess to 372 weaps that might help with progession this raid teir

They should be available now. We'll be watching just in case any further issues arise with these vendors.

One good lesson I've learned from working in the horror which is corporate America: Under promise and over deliver.

You tell us T2 comes around Feb 25th and release it Feb 22nd, you're a hero. You tell us Feb 22nd and release them just a couple hours late, even on the same day, you are on the curb.

I'll repeat it, print it out, hang it above your desk, somewhere you can see it on your yacht, near the mirror in one of your 15 bathrooms at home:

UNDER PROMISE AND OVER DELIVER
