So Purple should only be for high end raiding and not LFR so you can tell who has skill.
Old Purple = Heroic/Normal under the purple word now.
So having heroic/Normal shows you have skill.
If you didn’t raid you didn’t have old purples.
How can you tell if someone in LFR purple has skill? -> How could you tell in the old days if a person who didnt have old purple had skill so you would invite them in to raid to get purple?
I’m going to bet you gave them a test run to prove they had skill even if they had no purples?
If only we had a tool that was a lot like a raid where we could watch someones skills in action and determine if they were prepared to have purple gear (todays Normal/Heroic marked gear). You know, something like a raid but wouldn’t make us loose a lock out on a boss over someone who may not have skill.... Something with 25 players, many of the raid mechanics and is almost like a raid without actually being our guilds raid..... Something where people who are LOOKING FOR a RAID could all go to no matter what time of day it was even if all of your guildies were not on at that specific time....
