Nothing Good Comes
Easy...Or Does It?

Byron "Messiah" Mudry reminisces about the time when epic gear was hard
to get, and meant something? Now it seems like everyone and their dog
has a full epic set. With the proliferation of epics on every player
out there epics have lost their flare. In the last Blizzcast Blizzard
came pretty close to admitting that the current system is a bit too
easy, and gave some hints on how it is going to be corrected in the
Wrath of the Lich King. However players may not be happy with the
changes. Are we all too addicted to our free epics?

who you talk to the ease of getting any specific kind of gear varies.
Traditionally though it is viewed that reputation and crafted gear is
the easiest, followed by PvP gear as you never have to win anything
(other than for the certain pieces that need a arena rating). Next up
in the heroic and badge gear, and then raid gear being the most
difficult to get.
