    Item upgrade for 5.3

    What do you guys think of once 5.3 goes live everyone will have 4k valor points to spend on upgrading their gear up to 16 times. In pure ilvl that is 64 item levels. Which would probably from a dps pov be a dps increase by ~20k. HC bosses will become a joke? What u guys think?

    Item upgrades are capped at 8 levels (twice for Valor and once for Justice).

    It won't make anything a joke. Just slightly easier. Like he said, it's capped at 2 upgrades. Sure if a warrior or dk could make their heroic thunder forged weapons 605ivl that would make it a joke, but that's not possible. Assuming you're at 0/2 upgrades on each of your 16/17 slots you could do 4 ilvls on each slot, for an upgrade to your average iLvl of 4 points. Going from 518 to 522 won't suddenly have every group downing Ra-Den.

    Even with the same average upgrade and doing weapon, helm, chest, legs, trinkets, shoulder, hands (generally most important) twice won't make the push either. It'll simplify certain things but won't make anything face roll.

    Still, stuff like dps check or gear check in overall will be non-existant once this comes out imo.
