Maybe I just notice it more because I actually raid (Heroic) this expansion, but I feel like there are so many ways high end gear is thrown at us so that the current raid gear is almost invalidated when the tier isn't even over yet. Arathi + Doom's Howl dropping 370+, 370+ for stomping a couple of mythic dungeons, 385+ for Darkshore and the world boss there, 370+ on alliance side for killing a bunch of horde players, 370+ for doing 4 world quests (This one scales, but the effort required is non existant).
In my opinion, doing something so easy as a Warfront should NEVER give anything even remotely close to current mythic quality raid gear. I know the gear is supposed to be relevant when the new raid drops, but why not just increase the ilvl when the raid is actually there? I got a 385 bracer from my warfront and I actually didn't get excited for it, but instead felt something more closely related to shame because I didn't think i deserved that item in the slightest. It was the same empty feeling that one might experience when you cheat yourself good armor and weapons in an RPG, or activate god mode.
Stop throwing gear at me Blizzard! I want to earn my gear, work for it, not have it given to me just because i logged in.
