Gear choice have seemed almost non-existent in cata to me. Once you have access to whatever current ilevel tier you were working on, it just didn't matter. And there was usually only one option per tier. MAYBE two. The only difficult choices were "okay which tier piece is worst and has a better same-ilevel replacement so I know which 4 pieces to pick up for the 4 set" and those were still usually BLATANTLY obvious.
