I am restoration shaman and the only piece I have from reputation vendors is the spirit necklace from the Dread Waste funny insects. I got honored with them while I was leveling my way to 90. Now, I play on a casual guild that raids every now and then when we can get everyone online on one night I am really happy with our progression (MV) so far 2/6 (really good attempts on the third boss last night). I have not done a daily since 90 and I am not having any problems staying at top of the charts in healing on our raids.
Also I am saving all my justice points and valor points for the new item upgrades system that is on testing right now. Wich gives players an alternative of getting better without doing dailies.
What are your thoughts? How are you staying at the top of your game right now? Dailies, LFR, Heroics, Crafting?
