Thank you Blizzard

In patch 3.2 "Any dungeons that drop Emblems of Heroism or Valor, such as Naxxramas or Heroic Halls of Stone, will now drop Emblems of Conquest instead."

Wow.

Let me start off by saying "I sympathise 100% with everyone who put the effort into progressing through heroic Ulduar to earn their conquest emblems the hard way." Your feats are not cheapened by patch 3.2.

That being said... thank you Blizzard.

I'm somewhat ashamed to admit that in recent weeks (after the discovery of warcrafter.net) this druid became preoccupied with gear scores and server rankings. Once a casual player, I found myself raiding more and more, keeping my evenings free to try and pug into any Ulduar/VoA/EoE runs that I could, all in the pursuit of newer flashier sexies. The game was no longer a game, it was one big farming session, all for the satisfaction of reaching higher and higher scores on some website that had little to do with... anything.

Somewhere along the line I lost sight of what made WoW fun to play in the first place. Now that Blizzard is handing out conquest emblems like candy on Halloween, I realize that the satisfaction came from struggling through long and difficult boss fights (before several nerfs) not from the slight upgrade from 213 to 226.

It's time to get back to healing. Forget about topping recount lists or being the best geared druid on your server. Focus on being the best healing druid on your server and it won't matter what everyone else is wearing (or how they got it).

Thank you Blizzard... for the wake up call.
