    Badges getting messed up

    ok, blizzard announced there will be new badges in uld, "Marks of Conquest" (10man) and still unknown name for 25 man, the point is, that the only place you can earn these badges will be Ulduar, a place with 14 bosses that is uhm.. 13 badges for 13 bosses and Yogg-saron giving 2 badges (as it is in Naxx) current Valor and Heroic badges will become somewhat usless as long as Ulduar hits, as there is no way you can convert lower tier badges to higher ones. So if blizzard will not add additional encounters (5 man heroics, ZA style instanses) that will drop new badges, a player will need months to gather badges for single item. dont you think its a bit long? :-\

    Maybe they will scale the cost of items accordingly or maybe the items you can get will be that much more advance. We will just have to see

    blizz confirmed in a blue post that valor is being used for ulduar 10 man and the new vault wing 10 man. conquest badges are only for 25 man ulduar and 25 man wing of new vault.

    Badges were a great idea in TBC to keep people from being completely left behind, but it seems like the concept has been lost to them now.

    They want to avoid crossing multiple tiers of loot with the same badge, like back in BC.

    Maybe items will be cheaper like gems that cost 10 Badges of Heroism will cost 5 Conquest?

    Besides, if they keep the current cost of Teir gear then it would take you 4 weeks of full clears to get enough to buy the first tier piece (15x4=60, the cost of T7.5 shoulders) I dont know about you but it took me more than 4 Naxx clears before I got my Teir shoulders (Stupid warrior ones keep dropping) Besides, most of the current badge gear is pretty rubbish compared to most drops you can get in Naxx, I only bought an off hand and trinket myself with badges.

    Do you have a link to that one? Cause I must have kind of missed that.

    @Evil, He's talking about new badges not valor.

    Also, gogo 1000 Emblems of Conquest achievement -_-

    If they add even more content that drops valor badges I want some BoA valor stuff added tbh

    You know, 4 years ago i nearly farmed a whole month for the 20 arcanite bars to get a single blue item, namely the Arcanite Reaper. It also took me about 7 month to complete my T1 set in Molton Core. I had much more luck in BWL and got my T2 set in about 5 month. But since time has changed. Now you get free guaranteed loot just after x downed bosses... think about it and don't complain
    Please correct me if I'm impossibly sexy for no reason.

    ulduar 10 = emblems of valor
    ulduar 25= emblems of conquest

    reason? blizz dont want to have tbc all over again where some heroic farming scrub could reach almost bt quality lvl

    If you're implying that it was easier for a "heroic farming scrub" to get raiding gear during TBC compared to how it is today, you are completely wrong.

    It's easier today, lulz.

    completely disagree. people who aren't lucky enough to get into a raiding guild have to resort to pugs if they want gear. some people are just bad at rolling. this makes loot distribution less unfair. i love the fact that ulduar will have new badges. it will make elitists QQ a bit less, considering they already do that enough -.-

    Because the content is puggable. When we start seeing the REAL raiding you wont see scrubs rolling around in top end gear. In BC people who war farming post-nerf kara for badges were getting the same gear as people who were farming Illidan quality wise.

    Tokens (that's the common name for Badges/Emblems/Marks/etc.) is not getting messed up. The token system is perfectly fine, and you're not meant to keep farming content for tokens you have no use for.

    Tokens are good since they provide a somewhat easier gearing up, and ensure a reward for the raiders for every boss, not just each 10th kill.

    Iknow alot of scrubs want to get higher level gear without working for it. That won't really happend, so stop whining / argumenting / asking for it.

    Agreed :P

    The badges system is indeed working very well. I like the fact you can get PVP gear or BoA items for your alts etc.

    Word on the street is that Ulduar won't be a noob-walk in the park. Taking a stroll around Dalaran you can see everyone and their uncle in full valorous t7. For God's sake, I have 2 alts in full valorous...
