Tyren on the WoW beta forums had this to say today regarding comments about some Epic items not being very good.
|Please keep in mind that Epics are not really the top level items in the game. In fact, you could consider them upper mid level.
Legendary and Artifact items will appear in the game after raid content has been fleshed out. And there are lots of plans for interesting items :)
Having said that, Epic items will be getting another look sometime in the near future, though not in the upcoming patch.
