I don't see an issue guys. They are getting rid of war hero and elite war hero so ou won't have any epic gear at level 50 to melt lvl 30s with.
Uhh, they're getting rid of the ability to buy them from vendors, but people who still have their WH/EWH sets will be able to keep theirs. The new sets are specifically for level 55. The old sets won't be buyable anymore, but they're not being deleted from the game.
I wonder how many just won't buy the expansion to remain a level 50 twink forever?
