Upgradeitis

Upgradeitis: The condition of a WoW player after a length of time with no upgrades to their gear set, Can Result in loss of desire to play WoW

I had been suffering a bit of this disease lately. My tanking gear had not improved in 3 weeks, I was being asked to DPS things instead of tanking them. I didn't feel like my normal sexy tank self. So I took a page out of my Fiance's book. SHOPPING SPREE!!!!!

I always try and save the different currencies in WoW until I start feeling the effects of a mild case of Upgradeitis, That way I have the cure ready and waiting for that rainy day. This week I have been pretty busy with RL stuff, so my WoW playtime naturally is suffering. When you only have an hour to play you really cannot get all that much done. No heroic daily, No heroics period. So I have been logging on to spend my various currencys.

Over the course of a day or two I bought:
an epic ring with honor
an epic trinket with Wintergrasp marks
an epic tanking ring with Emblams of Valor
and depending on how the bids go, a sweet epic tanking cloak at quite a discount below market price from the AH
I also got the tanking legs from 25 man vault.

Guess its time to grind some more gold for enchants and gems.

Another case of Upgradeitis averted. I should be so fresh and so clean for my boss crotch session in Naxx this weekend.

Boss crotch session. . .LMAO obviously the doctor doesn't tank :P Thinking of it that way makes it blatantly obvious why shield slam generates so much aggro, would you rather be slashed in the leg or have someone slam their shield into your two best friends? (and I don't mean your pals in the winebago)

Spaceballs comments aside, when I get upgraditis, I log into an alt, although I'm not really a "raider" by any stretch

Hilarious, I always wondered why the guy doing less damage had the boss so pissed off at him. Its not about how much damage, its about what part(s) the damage is done to. Everything is so much clearer now!
