In Ur Heroicz, Stealin Ur Tier Gear

As I’m sure most of you are aware, there was much gnashing of teeth and/or offering up of sacrifices to Blizz when the changes to emblem drops were enacted with patch 3.2. The serious raiders don’t want it to be so easy for others to get gear that they had to work hard for, while the more casual, and especially the more alt-addicted, among us are cheering because we can get upgrades by doing what we do best .. heroics.

Now, way back when, like say … February and March … Juna was doing Naxx in a regular group.  There was one mage in particular who caught her attention, and it was part of the reason that Roz got leveled so fast … those glorious missile barrages, the sparkly T7 shoulders, and the top of the damage meter … yeah, I was smitten and had to have my own.

Fast forward to April 13 … Roz dings 80. By April 25, he had cleared Naxx….and he’s pretty much worn the same exact gear ever since. *sigh* The Naxx group broke up shortly thereafter, pugs were sporadic and rarely able to even get to Loatheb or Gluth (the two bosses that drop the shoulder token) and once Ulduar came out … well, good luck even finding a group for Naxx. 

But now? Well … any serious raiders who are reading this may want to look away now. I’m not joking here, go on, I don’t want to give anyone an ulcer.

Last night …. I took 23 Emblems of Conquest …. and I DOWNGRADED them to Emblems of Valour. Yes I did, by golly! I nerfed those suckers so fast they didn’t know what hit them. And I bought my damn T7.5 shoulders and I don’t CARE that I didn’t have to raid to get them. Because I did raid … and they never dropped … I never even saw them once. And if they had … I’d have been rolling against rogues, druids, and the infinite army of death knights that are in every raid. So screw you, RNG. I got what I wanted, the one item I have lusted after since my mage was born. Huzzah!

Doesn’t he look sexy?

    lol…I like your writing style. This story made me laugh because I am about to downgrade some conquest badges on my mage to get the T 7.5 sholders and I couldn’t agree more with you.

    Added you to my blog roll…keep up the good work!

    I am seriously considering downgrading my triumph and conquest emblems to valor

    to purchase BoA stuffs for my alts.


    Hi my name is Pie and I am an altaholic.

  6. Eldadres Says:

    Not to burst your bubble, Pie, but you can not downgrade Triumphs.

  7. repgrind Says:

    Thank you for the compliment, Doc. I added you as well. =)

  8. For The Pie Says:


    You can, there’s a “moneychanger” in the sewer by the innkeeper who will exchange them for conquest.

  9. Eldadres Says:
