Hello fellow COR!
I am writing this because I am having a problem acquiring a specific piece of gear for my level 30 COR, and being as much of a completist as I am I will not join another party on COR unless I obtain a Beater's Aspis first. As you can see here none have sold on the AH for more than 6 months now. I have gone to great lengths to obtain one even going so far as offering people who would join me on a BCNM 30 (Toadal Recall and Dropping Like Flies) run to keep everything but the Beater's Aspis if it drops, but, to no avail. Nobody I know is willing to even try these 2 level 30 capped BCNMs, and the months keep going by with not a single one on sale. I know this because I have been verifying the AH everyday religiously, since August 2008, when I reached level 30 on COR.
Anyway, on to the meat of the post:
Has there ever been a time when you didn't go forward with leveling a job because you never obtained a certain piece of equipment?
