    My luck was so crap on the first part and ive no doubt this will be the same.

    From what I am reading here, it sounds like your luck is already better than mosts for this part of the chain.

    That's why they nerf it to 3k valor in 5.3

    ^and to counter that they added in a rng quest that takes just as long or possibly even longer, i would rather they just straight up made it a vp grind rather than some sugar coated blue post about not repeating the 6k valor quest only to be hit with another one that's just as long or even longer.

    I'm confused. Why would anyone subscribe just to valor cap for that quest?

    Yea but still got a way to go, rng could make it so i dont get another one for a week or 2 or more we will have to see as its not consistent.
    Same could be said about those with 0/12 , next week they could get 3 or 4 who knows.
    I dont raid with the guild im in , i gave that up last year so those that do run lfr and guild raids have better odds than others. (assuming they drop of the same boss in lfr and normal/heroics in the same week, that i do not know).

    Me because I wanted to keep up with the quest chain. I'm crazy right? :P
    I was pretty much done with everything reps @ exalted and I dont raid with a guild so I was done could have canceled sub and wait but this valor quest kept me active as 6 weeks is just too much to be behind.

    OT: 3/12 first week.

    Currently at 7/13 after... 4 weeks? Can't really remember.

    Also slacked and missed some chances as I sat out some bosses and didn't bother doing them on LFR but 7 isn't too bad I guess.

    But, well, this long quest is tied to current raid content. And award is really, really great (while award for valor quest is equal to 0.5 profession bonus) , so why should it be easy to get?

    did some LFR this week, sadly still on 1/12 so far.

    Because the quest was designed to be done in current tier(patch), not when next part released. By next part i'm talking about 5.4 and new raid with new "legendary reward".

    I'm pretty sure patch 5.3 is 2-3weeks away. I wanted to get atleast 8 before the 5.3, but so far no luck at all.

    I'd count yourself extremely lucky especially if you were skipping bosses. I'm at 2 after 3½ weeks of clears, which was 22 boss kills that could have dropped one for me. Based on this thread and what our raid group has gotten, droprate is probably something like 10-15%.

    so its VERY random

    I was in that first round of quest-completers (not sure exactly how long ago that was), and I've gotten 0 every single week... except for 1 week where I got 3. I hate this quest with a passion.

    Theres a player in my guild who needed 1 Secret for his meta, that was 2 weeks ago, he managed to go 2 weeks with 0 drops, tell me how that doesnt suck. Too much RNG is just plain bad.

    On other news, does anybody know where the Runestones quest lead you to ?
    I was at 15/20 over 2 weeks ago... got 2 each reset, stuck at 19/20 on this. While a mage in my guild got like 6 this reset, at least. He was way behind on the 5.0 chapters even. Seriously? Very low % chances for some legendary gems is extremely poor design
