    I play a 6k+ GS bear tank and a 5k- GS DK tank. You do get all sorts of crap when you land in a random dungeon or a VoA group as a less than imba DK, because people assume you will loose agro and...

    Short answer, no.

    Longer answer, yes it can be an easier way to replace a really bad item, but it won't compare with the real thing. Wrathful bracers, for example, are really popular, but not as...
