I had no real time to play WoW for the last three months as I was working on a Christmas roleplay event for my guild, so I did not have the equipment for the LFR (Looking for Raid or as my guildmates say "Trottelraid" = idiot's raid) until yesterday.
Some of my guildmates were going and they decided I should accompay them. When I told them that my iLvl wasn't high enough yet, they immediatly asked what stuff I had where, gave me stuff from the raidbank (I am not raiding with my guild anymore as I do not have any time) to put into my bags and one even bought me two things with his valor points (because he has the max with several chars and does not really need them anymore) which were tradeable.
So in the end I had an iLvl of 372, exactly what I needed for the LFR.
And it was awesome to finally be able to raid again, even though it really is an idiot's raid - nothing compared to real raids. But most importantly I saw the new raid (which looks awesome!) and I really hope Blizzard is going to add all new raids to this so I will be able to see all future raids.
(Oh and I got two new pieces of equipment ^^)
Now I am going to visit the LFR every weekend with my main and I am already planning to equip my mage, so she can visit it, too! :)
Another little note - after 244 casts I got the new minipet (with my main; a twink already got it while doing the monthly fishing quest with only 5 casts <-<) from fishing at the Darkmoon Island, the very cute Sea Pony!
Now I've got 166 pets with my main. ^_^
