Yet, you fought tooth and nail for 3 levels.
why stop at 460, when you could just keep nerfing it?
Yes because having to run 10 or 20 more heroics for that one last piece to get into LFR would have been frustrating as hell.
There are 15 gear slots.
Hypothetically if you do not have any gear over 463, hypothetically of course. To get an average ilevel of 463 you would require 15 pieces of 463 gear.
Now with the ilevel at 460 you could have 8 pieces of 463 and 7 pieces of 458. This gives a HUGE buffer for bad rng.
People will still get as much as they can, but at least they wont be locked out because the RNG just isnt smiling on them.
Also as far as I know this doesnt change LFR at all, just the gear entry ilevel.
Like it or not I was right on this one, Ive been saying through this whole thread there was NO WAY they were going to let what was going on in LFG continue.
You're ignoring the 12 other ways we mentioned to get gear.
Crafting, PvP(CQ), raiding, Galleon, Sha of anger, Those 5 man epics (they're more common than you think, I've seen 3 swords now), Darkmoon trinkets (They'll be out).
all of these nullified by "omg you have to have full blues!"
On the good side, you mentioned nothing else is bothering you, so we won't get a topic tomorrow that gets Elder coins nerfed for heroic, or Challenge modes no longer track time if it's better than someone else's, so they don't feel bad?
Or will the topic of next week be you asking for Stone Guards LFR to be nerfed to only be 1 dog at a time?
