If you want the most dps from upgrading, upgrade:
1: Main Hand
2: Off hand
That's basically a listing of what items give the most stat budget. Rings obviously have a lot less stats, so upgrades on them don't give you as much as upgrading a chest.
Now, if you're looking to "Future-proof" yourself, and not waste valor while maximizing as much damage as possible. Just follow the above, run through it for all H-TF items, then do all your H items, then TF, etc. Although, I wouldn't upgrade rings unless they're at least heroic, they really don't get a lot of stats for 8 ilevels.

Reason: moved trinkets up one
The reason I didn't suggest upgrading OP's trinkets yet is because OP has several bis/near bis items and hopefully will be getting heroic Ji-kun down this reset, allowing him a chance at a Heroic Feather and Heroic Tier Pants. If no Heroic versions of those items drop OP then I'd suggest upgrading them.
Weps>Trinks>chest/legs give the biggest increase. That being said, moderate risk/reward based on what you have and what you expect to replace soon. In my case I'm more likely to upgrade my heroic legs than non heroic chest, for example.
I think my RL farted out his brains when he head banged horridon for 3 weeks. Would have farmed Jikun for 3 weeks and probably kept 10 good dps (who gave up after head banging)
That's it. If we still don't down H horridon this week, I'm gonna unsubscribe him.
We now run 3 fury warriors in our main team which means 4 warriors if we prot tank. There should be a special achievement for this..
Yeah, doesn't help that almost every night we've attempted Heroic Horridon we have to use a different tank from before. Last night we had our main Blood tank on Horridon the entire them (thank god for 2 Holy Paladins) then my Guardian Druid (OS from Resto) and, towards the end of the night, another Blood Dk (OS from Unholy and was our biggest damage on adds). Doors 1-3 I think are fine now, Warlords could die a little faster, but ugh, fuck door 4.
after upgrading 7 items to 2/2 this week i feel like the drop in valor makes a huge difference in my choice to upgrade a piece or not with 9 items left and 2 pieces upgraded a week id have to make a major jump in progression to really feel like i was dropping a huge investment into a piece i upgrade. a lot better then holding valor to cap and deciding if the 1k valor spent to upgrade an item was worth it each week like in 5.1
