Topic All my hard work was wasted
I consider myself to be pretty hard core wow player. I put in long hours doing:
Running LFR every single week.
Getting Valor Capped each week.
Getting the legendary gem
Getting things enchanted and gemed
I had FULL LFR gear by the start of 5.2 and I was ready to look for a serious raiding guild since my last guild failed.
But, they made getting LFR gear so very easy. I thought finally I'll have an advantage when I start to pull away with my solid gear. I'll be able to finally find a good guild. But, now when everyone has good gear it doesn't really differentiate me from anyone else. All my hard work was wasted.
You could be in full 522s, but believe me when a guild/pug leader armories you the first thing they look at is the character audit. Focus on getting fully gemmed/enchanted (doesn't need to be the most expensive stuff) and that alone will put you ahead of the crowd.
