    This may be true for some/many? The truly skilled have cleared HMs with gear from heroic 5 mans in crafted gear and ONE normal raid lockout. That was 5.0. and it. hasnt much changed

    But ..yeah... for many many many very mortal folks your statement might bei True

    So, in short: the internet.

    I explicitly said that you can run flex by either outgearing the content or by running with your guild, so you basically repeated what I had said. If my guild's schedule coincided with mine I wouldn't be trying to pug flex. Also, this is an alt. When I run content with my guild it's usually on my main. But those are personal considerations.

    Running content that drops 540 gear in 530 gear isn't getting "carried." The raid leader exclusively accepting players who outgear the flex content is the one asking for a carry. In your case you admitted to recruiting geared people outside of your guild to "carry" the people in your guild. However, I still contend that if your players are in 530 gear they're not being carried through flex. 530 is more than enough ilevel to contribute to a flex run.

    Maybe the game would be better with more low DPS nice guys and fewer high DPS jerks? -- Ghostcrawler, Twitter, 6/29/13
