AMG Wats yer gear skore?!?!

Having played through Ulduar enough to know that gear doesn't mean jack shit unless you are doing hard modes, I often become enraged when I see the following in trade:

LFM 10/25 Uld pst with spec, must have xxxx gear score.

I mean, come on. This is lol raiding at its best. Harder than Naxx, yet so easy an idiot can get epic'd in a week. Don't believe me? Fair enough, most people don't.

However, I am not the only person that thought this. Enter Greedy Goblin. His guild got so upset about this nonsense that they went all out and got themselves some ilvl 200 and below BLUE gear. Not one epic. None. Zilch. They made sure they were "undergeared". The result?

This needs more exposure. Especially since everyone who can't down Yogg complains about "gear".


  1. To be a bit fair, and a little more in perspective...they didn't LEARN the fight in that gear, which would have complicated their endeavor immensly. While I don't want to belittle their achievement, it is one thing to go into to something that is on "farm status" undergeared and just work a bit harder at already known mechanics, and quite another to be trying to learn the encounter from scratch without the gear to make errors in your learning process =)

    Just my 2c on it though!

  2. Too true. But to be fair again, this is in response to people saying you CAN'T do the fights in this type of gear.

    But you are right, and if you were learning these fights, you'd get the gear.

    It also reminds me of the first guild that cleared BT in T3 gear.

  3. LF Group 10/25 must have xxxx of a clue... lol

    I'd love to see a video of when this was done too :)
