So, not sure about anyone else, but I was under the impression that blizz wanted to get away from Valor being used to buy gear and replace it with the ability to upgrade gear ilvl with it. Now the daily factions offer epic gear at the cost of valor. Was anyone else under this impression? Regardless, if they put in epic raid level gear that you can purchase with valor at this tier, I guess we won't see the removal of valor gear this xpac. Mixed emotions on that.
