after playing arena tournmanet periodically in my free time (the wrath s8 one)
i pretty much lose all motivation to play when every tryhard that plays that game for 15 hrs a day
has full wrathful and are stuck at retard ratings while im chilling in relentless because theres a rating requirement to buy gear.
although i hjavent invested very much time on it, and im not the best season 8 player anymore, im still a lot better than people i meet in solo que more often than not and im pretty stuck at teh same rating so teh likelihood of me hitting 2k or w/e the hell it is for full gear just makes me log off
we cant as a community, ask for class blanace, and make gear with better stats only be available to people iwth better rating. that's actually the dumbest logic imaginable
your best bet is to find a warlock or something and get gear from 2's
also solo q is really rough at 1500 mmr
But that's how AT stays up $$$ from gear donations
You could also try to look for someone with a VIP account. I have a few sitting around if you want to play w/ some time for fun.
edit: Just realized you might be boomkin
In that case, good luck getting gear b/c balance is easily one of the worst specs in wrath. It's possible though. Marm got rank 1 on balance druid i think, but he's also marm.
