I hope no one has the delusion that just because I write a blog I have everything figured out. I don't. I read alot, but still struggle with decisions all the time.
My current pondering is what to do with my Emblems of Conquest. As you may know, my guild raids 10 mans only. We've gotten some Conquest through Emalon PuGs, but the Alliance having Wintergrasp is a rare occasion on my server. Then you have to hope you luck into a decent PuG that can down him, even nerfed. Most of our Emblems of Conquest come through various Hard Modes we do. But sometimes we don't get the right people on for Hard Modes and can't do them.
I'm not complaining mind you. I'm just trying to explain that that for my entire raid group the Conquests badges don't come quickly.
I've currently got 19 EoC, exactly enough to buy the neck piece : http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45821.
I could also use them to buy Runed Orbs http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45087, to get the Blacksmith crafted Boots and Belt made, but I've only got enough to buy 1 Orb and those recipies take 6 each.
I know these badges will drop like candy next patch, but I'm trying to decide what to do with them today. Next patch will have a whole new set of gear for me to chase.
I'm tempted just to buy the Neck and deal with it from there since I'm still wearing Heritage.
