Having finally gotten the required sigils, and the quest item from ToES, I continued the Wrathion quest. He sent me off to kill a bunch of alliance until I was exalted with him, but I'd already gotten to that state via other dailies including IoT prior to this stage of the quest..... So the turn in was immediate.
However, now I have to collect 6000 valor, and the counter is starts at 0. Just wondering why 1 requirement is counted since it was attained before reaching this stage of the quest, but not the other (since I've certainly attained 6k valor in this expansion)
I'm not adverse to grinds much, but I must admit I did sort of twitch at this (especially since there's no real other reason for me to continue focusing much on valor until the next patch hits). And seeing what else is in store as far as this quest chain, I'm .... way waaay behind, will have to run ToT a ton more even though I have no real reason to go back aside from secrets of the empire (which I haven't seen a single one of yet), etc.
Meh. I guess the point of this exercise was to have started it in a timely fashion, and don't leave the game for any length of time
