    True. I guess we'll find out.

    There's a new set of 522 gear from the new raid faction.

    Even if you could do that, prices for 5.0 and 5.1 VP gear is being slashed by 50% and 25% so you wouldn't get all your VP back.

    It wouldn't be an exploit if it worked. I mean...I have returned items that I bought before a raid, then sth better dropped right at the start and I returned it for a refund. But obviously for patches Blizzard doesn't want us to do this. Plus: You already get items that are now on rep vendors at a reduced cost in 5.2

    Question is: Will you have the desired rep to buy items fast enough? I mean..if you are Valor capped through the method the OP suggested, you still cannot buy a new item from that faction. You might just save yourself the hassle of some dailies in the next few weeks..or raids..or whatever to cap valors again.

    So, in short: the internet.

    clever use of game mechanics =/= cheating.
    It's Draenei. Drahn-eye. No Dranai, Dreani, Dratini, Dreaneai, Drayni. Except I play an Orc.

    Also why would they have implemented that? During previous patches valor had been converted so this "exploit" could only be applicable on 5.2.
    and there you have your answer. Valor was converted. Meaning you had 0 valor. If you sold back an item worth 2250 valor. you had 2250 valor insted of 0. Therefor. what you are trying to do. Is fixed by another issue

    You probably can now since there is no valor wipe however you will most likely get the new value back on the item. So if the item is 1250, you probably will only see 625 as that is the new price on the 5.0 valor items.
