There's another advantage to all of those heroics.
A bunch of emblems.
I've never been much of a gear person. The stuff you need to wander aimlessly around the world isn't much. But, once again, all of the sudden I find myself in tons of heroics and reaping the "spoils" of that.
I'm sure elitists would scoff at what little gear I have, but that's okay. I have fun in this game. It's never been a job for me ;)
These are my new bird shoulders. Somehow I think they fit my in-game personality pretty well.
