Increasing the drop rate for Old LFR's yes that would be helpful, but still we're going against RNG there.. there's still a chance of you not getting loot per week just to catch up.
As what with someone said able to purchase malev gear with HP, I hope that's true since there's still no solid post that they will be converting patch 5.0 vendor VP/Conq gears down to JP/VP once 5.2 hits.
What really my question is now, will they be converting current Valor gear too down to JP? Or will they still be VP along with new VP items that will be made on 5.2.
If they will bring it down to JP, that's good enough catch up mechanic for me.. That's exactly what I want to happen actually, not new dungeons and shiz.. at least you still need to work on them on dungeons to grab those items... The next question is, will we be able to upgrade those 489 epics using JP too?
Would be nice to upgrade them with JP indeed. But in all honesty... as a non-raider (just LFR) I don't get much gear from LFR - yes last Xmas I got lucky and had about 3 tier pieces and something more. But until that moment I didn't get much. Seeing my luck in LFR, I decided that all my VP would go towards getting epic pieces. But ofcourse now that I finally have some loot from LFR, I can almost start wondering what to do with my VP now. I still need 2 trinkets 1 ring bracers and a helmet. Thats a lot of VP. On the other hand, if I buy anything - my luck would be just that LFR would hand me that slot of loot next ID - and I could have upgraded instead.
I guess I will just do LFR and safe my VP for the time being.
the only catch up mechanic I wish they'd make is a leveling catch up mechanic.
I have almost 40 toons, and I'm sick and tired of leveling already, but at the same time, it's hard to resist the urge of creating new characters.
I wish leveling would get faster the more level max characters you had, on an exponential order. so if you have a level 90, leveling a second one is almost the same deal, but if you have 10, leveling your eleventh is much faster.
You do realize that you are quite the deviation from the norm, right?
