Yeah I mean previous xpacs NEVER had gear locked behind...oh wait, they did.
Cept now you're used to running heroics til your eyes bleed then buying a bunch of BoE valor gear with alts to boost your item level.
THEN complaining that you're bored and have nothing to do, and why are epics so easy to get anyway, look at all the people with vendor epics this SUUUUCCCKKSS!!
...cept when they're not easy to get coz then THAT'S A CHORE! I CBFed with all this stuff to do (Said I was bored? Wanted more content? Nah that ain't me) Why can't I just farm heroics and get all my gear (But just me, or otherwise everyone will do it and then the gear will be trash epics...)
