Working hard for the summer and to find the Ethereal chest and shoulders resolve not even relevant for the upcoming expansion, might ruffle quite a few feathers.<br />Suggested fix is to raise the resolve on those two pieces to at least 70 or higher. They should be near T1 resolve in my opinion but no less than than fabled heroic drops in the upcoming CD expansion.<br />The "Cow Helm" should be raised slightly as well to perhaps 60 resolve.<br />Maybe even look at raising the ethereal ring setting to at least 60?<br /> <br />I know it was mentioned that the team was possibly going to revisit some items' resolve and I hope they increase them, keeping in mind the work and time put in to attain them. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" alt="BigGrin" />

I would also add the DC collection neck to the list.

Adding to this, if they aren't added, please add the Ethereal setting rings to those with updated resolve. They're a pretty substantial investment in terms of time, plat, status, and gems needed. It would be nice to have them relevant for heroics and possibly T1 raids. I absolutely understand replacing them beyond that point.

I do not understand why you people cry about old xpac stuff when its not "made to work" in the new xpac. <br /> <br /><ul><li>You KNOW this </li><li>You CHOOSE to waste your time doing it.</li><li>You CRY about it every xpac. Let them FOCUS on the new stuff.</li></ul>

No one here is crying, just asking is all. Some of these items took significant investment in time, effort and even money. We understand a gear reset, it's natural and needed. But bumping a few items that took more than moderate effort would be nice, not a requirement, but nice, if for nothing else than to make them valid until something similar can replace it. Getting the Ethereal items within the past month only to toss them in less than a month for an event that took almost five months to obtain isn't necessarily fun either.<br /> <br />Or at the minimum give us a path to upgrade them like the Tome and secondary in PoP maybe?

And the ethereals, as was explained to me a couple years back, is to help the more casual raider clear the xpac before the new one launches. Nothing more..Nothing less. It has turned into a "waste your summer" event that gives out game breaking items (Like runes) that instantly disqualifies you from raid guilds if you don't have them.<br /> <br />Anyone that says otherwise has them and doesn't know the struggle to find a raid group without them.

We are clearing into T4 at the moment and I do not see anywhere that we have a requirement that you have all of the runes. I play a defiler on raids and have only 1 of the runes - not the 3 combined - and still raid. Last summer I had exactly 0 pieces and still raided. We want people who can listen, pay attention to scripts, and work to better themselves - i.e. play a healer, know how to heal and cure dets, a DPS needs to put out actual DPS, etc. Now, it is probably true that you aren't going to go run off and join Dread Army or The Covenant without them but many guilds will accept you as long as you can play.<br /> <br />Sorry, I just see this statement a lot - "I cannot raid because I don't have [insert whatever special item / ethereal go released over the summer here]" That is simply not true
