Eh? What dungeons have you been running? The gear you get from the bosses is comparable to epics to the degree it's sometimes difficult to choose between them. The 5-mans are the most fun I've had in BC so far (Karazhan is cool but raiding is always more serious-minded than 5-mans). Heroic modes drop the same loot (unless you're running a sub-70 instance) as normal, except the last boss drops one epic also.

Damn it....This thread is like being at Thanksgiving with the family. First everyone's nice (Good Double XP Weekend), then (Vanguard Sucks/So Does WoW back and fourth a hundred times), then (Oh, I'll show you my game if you show me yours), then (Your game is cool...no...YOUR game is Cool....No Your Game is cool)....I think I'm getting to be schizo off this thread...ROFL...

All kidding aside, it's good too see everyone is getting along and realising there are good and bad to any game based off choice and taste...

No I meant pre-heroic bosses. That gear is not much better than quest rewards. The gear you get in the heroic mode is awesome

BTW check this game out. http://community.ageofconan.com/wsp/...&selected=null

This is where it is going to be at for me. I am so jazzed about this game. It will be DX10 and blow Vanguard away in the graphics department.
Thanks, man.

Age of Conan looks incredible. A DX10 MMO? Oh hell yeah.

Downloading some videos now...

The videos just look amazing--especially the 3rd one down. DX10 is going to completely change the face of gaming.

WoW doesn't need DX10.

It needs to come with sunglasses in the box so you can't hardly see it and don't feel the need to vomit from looking at the crappy PS2 graphics.
