    I think going back to 8 set pieces would be amazing.

    You could only get 4 of them from badges, the other 4 only as loot drops. The "best" two set-bonuses would be for 2/4 set naturally, but the 6/8 set bonuses would be worth the time investment to max out the set.... maybe more cool visual or aesthetic things rather then straight up stat boosts.

    An 8 piece set wouldn't be any harder to acquire then a 5 piece set plus bracers, boots, and a belt. Nor would it feel any more epic.

    That being said, I like the aesthetic set bonus idea, but we basically already have that now.

    they are just spouting out crap for us to use in a few months to call them hypocrites. The new point system introduced is the exact same one as whats being used now with the conversion of badges to points. epics will never be epic /thread

    "Epic gear should feel epic"?

    ...You know what? It's not worth talking about it. It's purple font gear with slightly higher stats than blue font gear, that's pretty much been the constant.

    There you go
    Seems slightly silly to me.

    EPIC items felt EPIC in vanilla for a few reasons.

    1 . Pve required alot of grinding. It was also probably harder in a sense. You would generally only find really hardcore guilds capable of outfitting all raiders in epics , because almost no one was able to raid the harder content.

    2. Most the epic items had unique arts. Was alot less reuse of models which made them feel different.



    Now blue , purple w/e it makes no diff really. Once raids are on farm , which according to their casual friendly philosophy should be quickish , people will be epicced out again anyway.

    I do agree with the change, just don't think that all the blizzard haters of this expansion will be as pleased as they might think.
    yup
    If it's true that our species is alone in the universe, then I'd have to say the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little.
