Welfare Epics (whinging me)

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 12:57 pm

I’ve read a bit about “welfare epics” before, this site but they’ve not really meant anything to me. However I think I get it now. Flowersz has been slowly improving her gear and might just about be Karazahn ready in a few more weeks, hospital and 6-12 more dungeon runs. But I’ve now seen a couple of guildies hit level 70 and been Kara geared almost instantly!

This has happened more than once, symptoms and in most cases they seem to be wearing Gladiator’s XXXX gear. These seem to be the “Welfare Epics” that are talked about. They’re not easy to get, you have to do a lot of PvP, but I can’t say it doesn’t make me a little envious to see other toons hit Kara so soon after leveling. There’s absolutely nothing I can do about it either, I only have 2 options: 1)PvP for a few weeks to earn the required pieces, or 2) do dungeons for a few weeks.

Since I started writing this post I’ve been having a quick look and it’s come as a surprise just how many of our new Karazahn players are in Gladiator’s gear, far more than I expected.

I’m having a bad day, can’t you tell?
