The gear fetishists have spoken. The news is actually very good news. I dont want a new tier until 2013. This arms race mst die.
It is extremely easy to gear up with 61, especially if you have multiple toons that are raid ready and you're willing to spend the money to transfer the mods through BoL gear. I have 1 toon that is fully bis, a 2nd that missing a few mods (only come from camp legs), a 3rd and 4th that need hilts/barrels. Also one of the toons only been 50 for two weeks now.
