One of the major ways for characters to gear up in World of Warcraft is through badge rewards. Badges are earned by running heroic instances or raids. Many players however do not have ready access to raids since their guilds do not run them or they do not have the time to dedicate to them. This leaves running many heroics, or chaining heroics, to earn as many badges as possible. Join Byron “Messiah” Mudry as he walks you through some of the best ways to earn massive numbers of badges. He also delves into how to have some fun if the task of farming for huge numbers of badges becomes monotonous.

If you are a class that can not tank or heal, or if you could but you choose not to, the next best thing is to make friends with a tank quickly. Join as a group with a tank in it and when you queue you get their short queue time as well. This makes getting through heroics all that much faster. Failing that you can queue in the LFG tool and simply go and farm something while waiting for the group to form. I find that I can get a lot of mining, skinning, herbing, etc done on my various characters as I wait for a group.

You can find all the details in our Guide to running chain heroics.
