    Impossible to get into pugs

    I play on Kazzak EU and I have been taking breaks now and then during MoP so my gear is kind of lackluster. Now on my server people want 530-550+ ilvl to join their pugs. I mean, wtf? How am I supposed to get that ilvl when LFr only offers 528.

    Anyone else have this problem?
    Bang bang

    LFR + Timeless Gear + Ordos/Celestials

    2/2 Timeless gear is 543, so if you fill every slot with it, you will easily reach 530.

    Pugs died a while back, blizzard killed them with their LFR garbage.

    Players with high ilvl are always considered "skilled" and that is totaly wrong. Since i saw hundreds of players with top Normal diff gear failing god damn hard that is very wrong. The only reasonable part of that is they consider all are good at raiding because they know the fight and it will be faster to complete the desired run, I am ok with that idea, however ppl with 510 gear looking for 530+ is just bullshit.

    Hah, and those raiders wonder why so few partake in the activity.

    This item allows you to upgrade 496-tokens to 535-gear, its a random drop from rares/elites on Timeless Isle.

    You can also buy them for Timeless Coins if you have enough, I think they cost 50k coins each.

    Haha, join the club. Maybe we should make our own pugs and call it "The 525 club".

    Burden of Eternity will convert a timeless token into a 535. Additionally, you can spend VP to upgrade your LFR gear (Esp. for weapons) from 528 to 536.

    Alternatively, Read some strats, and try your own. Wing one is pretty easy in flex. Shamans will probably stomp you a couple times in wing 2, but otherwise, it's pretty easy too, with a decent strat.

    There you go.
    Last week I killed Huolon, the ship and Archiereus about 15 times EACH, that's 45 kills. No burden of eternity. I blew 20k timeless coins on the chests in the cave, dunno how many chests I opened considering you also get coins back, maybe 60 or so, but I didn't find one damn burden.

    Good news though, I managed to stealth my way into Ordos' backyard and looted the blazing chest for 1 burden. Fucking yay for me.

    you shouldn't use coins on the chests anymore, it was nerfed dramatically.
    and getting lots of 535 gear from the isle isn't as easy as these people make it out to be, be prepared for lots of farming unless you have awesome rng.
    You can also get a 2nd burden from the quest lines on the isle.

    The 3 bosses have a 1 hour spawn rate. You can keep track with Rare Coordinator add-on http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/rarecoordinator
    Also on my server if you write "raretimer Huolon" (ex) in general chat in Timeless Isle 3 people will instantly reply with their add-ons, so you know which one will spawn next and where it is.

    Won't help that much as burdens seem to be extremely rare drops.

    On my alts that have lower ilvl I simply tell the raid leader "I will do competitive DPS, if I don't, then I will leave the group without complaint."

    60% of the time, it works all of the time.

    Yeah and the raid leader kindly accepts having to go back to trade chat to look for a replacement and making the raid wait. Suuuure.
