What the hell are you doing?
This D3 gear drop table you’ve got has me scratching my head.
You’re making Arms/Fury Warriors do four different Heroics in order to get most of their Doomplate gear? This is their D3 stuff. If they’re running Heroics over and over… *What* gear are they using to get to, and maintain running, Heroics?
Feral Druids also need to visit four different Heroics. And none of their D3 drops in the Cenarian’s area of focus, the Coilfang Reservoir. Ain’t that a laugh?
Wouldn’t they simply be picking up their Tier 4 stuff running Heroics? (What do I know, I haven’t made it into a Heroic yet.)
Half as bad off are Enhancement Shamans and some Hunters. They’ve got to run two different Heroics in order to get the last of their Desolation set.
So the classes least likely to comprise a 5-man instance group, not only have to run these instances over and over and over to get their keys to run Heroics… then they have to farm Heroics. Who’s carrying these guys along? (Though last night in Shattered Halls, I tanked, we had a Hunter, Shadow Priest, Resto Shaman, and an Arms Warrior along, the Arms Warrior out DPS’d the Hunter. He’s got the 2-hand version of my Planar Axe. Yeah, we cleared the place. But he was taking a lot of damage, and he replaced someone who could have shed a little aggro.)
Mages, Warlocks, and Priests, providing they toe the party line (i.e. DPS, DPS, Heal), they get their D3 in ordinary instance runs.
Rogues, Hunters, Protection Warriors, Resto Druids, and Elemental and Resto Shamans, also don’t need to run a Heroic to get their gear.
There’s something wrong with this picture.
Why should the same ilevel gear be exponentially more difficult for a Feral Druid to get than a Holy Priest?
P.S. Holy Priests and Warlocks get 2 pieces out Shadow Labs. Hunters and Mages get 2 pieces out of the Steamvaults. Feral Druid has to run 4 Heroics and a Normal (and none in CFR) to get their gear, the Clothies and Hunters only need to run 4 Normals.
