So, my mage is ilvl 381. Getting beyond that requires, A) Mythic runs, or B) pre-made raids, or C) grinding BGs/PvP.
All of these rely too heavily on other players. I wait on average 45min to join Mythic group (somebody always leaves half-way through, it seems). Raids–same deal just longer wait. BGs/PvP is a s***show. The WQs and Assaults give duplicate items.
Since higher gear is needed to get more opportunities, here I sit yet again behind the ilvl wall. Every expansion it seems. Or, by the time I can purchase high end gear (gold, medals, etc.) a new season starts and I’m back behind the wall.
Are there other methods I’m missing that avail higher level gear?
