    [WoW] I finally made it to 80...

    Where can I get good gear that isn't through PVP or requires me to give my evenings raiding? Are the heroics any good for gear compared to raids?

    I know it's all pointless but... I'm just that sad.

    When I use to play I used Loot Rank, Loot Rank Templates. Select your preferred class and it can even retrieve your character from the armoury, it will show you exactly where you can get your improved gear from. You can also set the preferences so it does not display raid or PvP items.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm not a PvP or Raid player either ... and it is frustrating that I have to get lucky or spend a lot of gold on stuff. I've only got one level 80 (been playing since close to original release with a short break to get a life) and it is frustrating that some others treat you as a newb just because you are not wearing the best gear ... and you don't even get into any dungeons either because of it.
    I'm concentrating on achievements right now ... just in case any of them can't be done after Cataclysm is released.

    I am getting kicked from heroics because my gear isn't good enough and I can't be bothered with going onto comms to talk to people about game tactics to do raids. I did PVP this weekend because it was the call to arms and extra honor so all my gear is PVP but it's poo for PVE.

    *ding* grats!
    I never used to do PvP but when my rogue hit 80 I had good times going to WG and getting all stabby on mages/priests etc. It can be quite good fun when you get into it but I totally agree on the raiding, I don't have guaranteed solid blocks of time to invest in a 25 man raid or something so I miss out on that part, plus the beauty of WoW I find is just being able to pootle around doing your own thing.

    I can't even buy worthwhile gear on my server, I can't get the plans for decent blacksmithing either. I've been kicked from heroics and non-heroics, it sucks! I stopped playing before Burning Crusade, started again just before WOTLK then gave up because it was effort and just came back into it now - must be the cold weather!

    @nikaso - death knights are not so sneaky haha

    I know how you feel on the no raids no PvP thing. I tend to take a break mid-expansion then hit the cap after everyone has far surpassed me. :P

    I joined a casual raid guild filled with friends instead and enjoyed it far more then the hardcore groups I was in. That way I got round the Holy Paladin trap in early Burning Crusade, while everyone had a sucky time chain casting one spell I was hitting things.

    I've not been playing very long, but from my experience I'd say do random normal dungeons in mode to build up some Justice Points and buy the the appropriate T10 gear from Dalaran vendors.

    You get kicked from normals? That's just plain nasty.

    Can't your guild run a few HC's for you to allow you to pick up some easy JP's?


    I've got an lvl 80 Orc warrior and a lvl 59 'lock both on Karazhan, when the next patch comes out I'll start a Tauren hunter on Azjol Nerub.

    I am an 80 DK (horde) on Aszune and I am enjoying the daily quests. I have not had the pleasure of doing an ICC raid yet, they all just laugh at my gearscore....

    I'm enjoying the daily quests in Northrend at the moment ... only really just gotten into them with my 80 (alliance) DK on Earthen Ring. I now run a guild ... consisting of me and my alts so am finally getting the benefits of the guild bank. Now I am also trying to build up my alts so I have access to the different professions rather than lvl to get into different dungeons / raids.
