Okay so I updated to Patch 3.2, fixed my UI (that was a pain in the ass!), tried the new 5 man dungeon (do away with mounted fight part plz), and found that everyone and their mothers are doing Heroics now.
I got like five invites within the 30 minutes I was on while trying to get Quartz to work. “Why?”, I was wondering. Ooooh… they got upgraded to [Emblem of Conquest], and [Emblem of Heroism] and [Emblem of Valor] no longer drops.
Hmm… I have 137 x Emblems of Heroism still, what could I get with these? Oooh! New gems! *runs over to AH to check prices* Holy crap they’re going for around 130g each. I also have 88 x Emblems of Valor, which I can turn to Heroism, which I can turn to Gems, which I can turn to Gold!
But there was something else I had my eyes on for quite some time now, which would cost me 200 x Emblems of Heroism. The [Reins of the Wooly Mammoth]!
So here is my problem: Should I get 2,500g worth of Gems, or get the mount?
As you can see from my screenshot, I am one broke Mage. So I could use the gold and/or gems instead of buying them. Then again, I’m not raiding much anymore, so I won’t need to re-gem too often.
With the new patch, the only way to get Emblems of Heroism is to convert Conquest too Valor, then Valor to Heroism. That seems like a real waste of Conquests. So stocking up on some Epic gems now would be a good idea.
If I do that though, I might not get my chance at the mount again for quite some time. Hmm… decisions, decisions…
Right now, I’m leaning towards getting the mount. I’ll ask some of my friends to see what they think.
What do you think?
