Yeah, I know. And even worse still, is the fact that a couple pieces are more geared towards a bear/tank, with very little in the way of DPS stats. But really, I dont see my other option. Should I just run regular instances and try to get better blues, and then go back to heroics, or what? I barely get upgrades to drop for me in Heroics, as it is 70% plate, 20% mail, 5% cloth, 4% caster leather, and then that 1% cat leather, lol. Or at least that is what it feels like. Plate seems to be dropping like candy compared to everything else.
