Do you remember in Cataclysm, that you could finish a quest where the rewards were mail, leather, and plate, and you were a clothie? Well I do. I thought that was all gone with smart loot but it’s somewhat back again.
For instance, I really need gear on my resto druid and new hunter. I did my first emissary box. What did it give me? Oh, a relic I COULDN’T EVEN USE. So I did another quest, and another. Both gave me life relics and I haven’t even opened that slot yet. So dang annoying. My druid had the same issue where she got 3 relics in a row that didn’t belong to any spec I play (feral or resto). UGH.
