I'm not particularly worried about it, but I wouldn't mind seeing LFR gear being blue. Keep raid gear and rated PVP Gear epic, and make dungeon/lfr and honor gear blue.
Yes, but when they are of EQUAL itemlevel, the quality represents the strength... It's not like Vanilla epics are better then MoP greens, because MoP greens are higher itemlevel.

Indeed, same as me. Everyone think it's about snowflakes wanting to be special. I couldn't care less about that.
well its not. i mentioned having artifact items on heroic raids - i sure as hell would never see one myself! but it would add something to aim for. thats not being a special snowflake thats wanting to bring back the epic feeling.

Did you even read what I wrotte before that? I'm exactly defending that in case you didn't notice, thing is people think that's not what we are after. They think it's about to be "hey look at me i has pruplezzz"

I suppose it should really work like this, the top 5-10% of iLevel gear of any single expansion should be Epic. This should be dynamic and change gear from Epic to Rare when the next tier comes out.
01/08/2013 11:04Posted by DottieYou did see the items I linked, right? Same level Blue is much more powerful? When I mentioned them in the last thread about this I got shot down with people saying I was an idiot as they aren't the same as they drop in different areas.
I completely agree. I miss standing on the top of Orgrimmar bank and show off my gear. People would ask how did you get this , how how how ...
I miss helping other players to get their gear , i miss raid being hard , i miss explaining tactics and watch them as i told them , i miss having ashes of alar was actually EPIC thing , i miss farming 15 days to get artisan riding , i miss SW raids done with 80 people ..
*Keep in mind that there are currently no plans that I know of to change the way these tags are displayed, this is intended as merely a gathering of suggestions and feedback.
Reducing LFR gear to blue wouldn’t make a big difference, there’s plenty of other sources of high ilvl gear that would need to be changed to blue, and even if we did that and only normal + heroic would drop epics, we would never have the same level of rarity as in the old days, content is just so much more diverse, more regularly updated and players are way more skilled.

An idea I had would be to make thunderforged drops have a different color, since they're just about on the right level of rarity to make them feel special and powerful.
Ideally, we'd have a progression of four different colors (Normal, Normal TF, Heroic, Heroic TF) like on wowprogress, but failing that, a new color in between purple and orange to denote TF items would work out fine. (Especially now that orange basically means ‘quest item’)
Edit: Apologies if this has been mentioned before.
You could say the same thing about comparing last expansion’s epic items to MoP’s greens and blues.

It has just been mentioned above by Taepsilum. At least it kinda felt that way.
I think that's a move on the right direction yes. Epic gear shouldn't be named "Epic" imo as it doesn't resemble that word. Maybe only that colour gear (Heroic gear that is) should've have that name.
