Calm down. While you had the best up to that point it really isn't the best (some of your gear is actually pretty old) Most people when the expansion came out had item level 264 equipment from wrath raids and could go right into the new dungeons. It wouldn't make sense to make the new dungeons tuned for people with level 72 gear such as you are outfitted in (your equipped item level is 149). They would have been facerolls for people getting done raiding in wrath. So to tune it for that, they had to make the new dungeons a step up from the raids that people were just doing.
I was told by people on here several times that the lower level raids became all but extinct with the last expansion. Now nobody wants to put a lot of time into level 70 - 80 raids when that gear won't last very long.
This may have been a smooth transition for people who had already maxed out their toons before the expansion when lots of people did the 70 - 80 raids because they were the highest level raids and had the best gear, BUT now almost nobody is doing those raids because of the new higher level raids, so I can't get the same gear. It's kind of hard to run raids alone.
Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining because it is going to be hard to get to 85 and/or take a while, but by creating this huge rift space between Expansions they just created the first ever day of my WoW life where I AM NOT HAVING FUN ANY MORE.
Yeah I like doing a lot of Dungeons and now that has been taken away, the WoW PvP (battlegrounds) is broke completely and now with the huge expansion gear differential Questing is not fun either because my gear SUCKS and a friggen Crab is kicking my !@# as a level 80.
With not doing battlegrounds because of all the BoA Gear people totally making that suck and not being able to do Raids because nobody wants to do the Raids from the last expasion, I have the best gear I could get from Quests, random loots, Dungeons and the AH (except items listed for like 5000 gold) and now it's totally crap.
Yes I'm pissed and I think there are other games out there that would be fun until those games start expanding too much and destroy the game for any potentiially new players.
