But this was one week ago, so it might be patched or capped.
Thanks smaikii exactly the answer i was looking for, and ye my concern when i first raised the question was indeed trash farming.
1st week: 3000-1250 neutral neck +1000
2nd week: 2750 -1250 friendly ring +1000= 2500 (and you can still buy the trinket or bracers) bracers=1250 trinket=1750
3rd week: 750+1000 -1250 (trinket or bracers) = 500
you can start with 2500 points and get all 4 items in the 2nd hardmode id

In more think that you can reach Friendly largely before the start of the 2nd week. it's more:
week 1 : 3000 -1250 (neck) - 1250 (ring) + 1000 = 1500
week 2 : 1500 +1000 - 1750 (trinket) = 750
week 3 : 750 + 1000 - 1750 (bracer) = 0
They are at 1750, not 1650 !!!
Gear and item upgrades will vary person to person but it's pretty much guaranteed to be the trinket and something else.
Also bracers, neck and ring are all 1250 VP. Only the trinket is 1750 from the neutral/friendly gear. Not much of a difference but it means people who are capped at 2500 will still be able to get all 4 pieces of gear in 3 weeks after 5.2's release.
Here's a little chart I made showing roughly what gear drops from each boss:

I find it quite useful so maybe someone else will too
Nice work jtmzac!
Ok, so I just skimmed this post. You could get a farm group and do trash to friendly without overcapping valor?
In that case, you could definitely hit friendly and buy the trinket and ring first week with bracer second?
Thanks in advance,
I'm not sure if valor you earn at 3k will count towards your cap that week. I hope not. Bosses do give 375 rep each (guild perk + 15% banner).
Yes, you overcap so you don't want to try and kill something that gives valor when you have 3k.
that is wrong. you cannot overcap. you can still get your full 1k after finishing the raid.
its been "tsulong" i have yet to see a sha touch heroic weapon...... T.T
