Now that we have a world of Warcraft lounge, new players can come to this section and learn a thing or two. One thing I have to say is never leave a socket empty and always get your items enchanted when you get the opportunity. If your doing a raid 90% of the time, raid groups will not take people with no sockets or enchantments. Sometimes you might have to give a person a small amount of gold to put an enchantment on your piece of gear, but it's definitely a profit because these raids will give you 5x the amount of gold you spent on your upgrades. Hope you learned a thing or two.
