My next upgrades...

I hit 45 badges last night so my first purchase will be...

Savage Gladiator's Dragonhide Helm

Now I won't do this unless I don't get Shroud of Darkness from Heroic Violet Hold before we get to 25 man Naxx or maybe the tougher content in the 4th quarter of 10 man Naxx.

For now I am going to hold on to the badges until I really need them, my current setup is more than capable for 5 man heroics and at least up to Patchwerk in 10 man Naxx.

I really need to keep running Heroic Utgarde Keep...

Bindings of the Tunneler would be a small upgrade but one nevertheless.

I also need to try to keep running Heroic Azjol-Nerub to get Essence of Gossamer which is going to be essential after the 3.0.4 armor change (Notice I didn't say nerf)

It really sucks that there is really no good option for a second trinket unless you are a JC, Alchemist, or Engineer. My 2nd slot will either be some sort of expertise trinket or other DPS trinket like the Mirror of Truth unless I can somehow afford Darkmoon Card: Greatness.

My DPS set keeps improving little by little after getting Sharp-Barbed Leather Belt last night.

With so little upgrades to my gear from Heroic drops I have been fortunate to have a group allowing me to gear up for spellcasting. I am really excited about have a decent set for maybe trying out some sort of dreamstate build as DPS / off heals.

Yeah dont forget random drops are part of what makes the game fun, keeps us all tense and makes us want to play more and and more....

Remember the days when we had every piece of gear in the game, millions of gold, and literally nothing to do on our mains we hadnt done a thousand times before??? I'm glad I'm at a stage where running a heroic may still give me an upgrade for my main. Enjoy it! These times will be over soon enough....

Having said that, the loot gods have been as fair as they usually are: averagely generous in heroics, massively generous in naxx (which always happens when you first set foot in a new raid). Again, trying my best to enjoy it, and not be jealous of other people's good fortune with drops.

So far I have been extremely happy with my luck... I guess that is easy when you remember running Black Morass 20+ times, seeing the hourglass 7, and losing every roll... not to mention trying to figure out why a warlock would roll on it... lol

I have to also attribute my good fortune to some of the most selfless and giving guild members I have ever met. Getting my DPS bracers that are BoE drop from CoT in the mail from a group that could use them was just a small example of the generosity in my guild. Having people that put the guilds progression and it's members ahead of the mighty gold is really cool.

Fortunately when my main is done farming heroics I have a level 70 lock, 67 hunter, 60 DK that need leveling.

I am very unlucky so far... Im running azjol nerub every day for the past 8 days and no trinket drop.
The ring from draktharon keep also dont drop nor the head from VH.

About the trinket... the badge trinket is a very nice avoidance trinket.

Also, about the "Savage Gladiator's Dragonhide Helm", its available to sell? I havent found it anywhere. Wintergrasp maybe?

Arcanist Ivrenne in one of the corner shops in front of the Silver Enclave for Alliance or Magistrix Lambriesse in the right most circle area in the Horde sanctuary.

I am most likely going to have to get this as well since VH has not dropped my helm.
