I just hit my 3000 VP today on an alt after doing Throne of Thunder on normal already this week. I don't need to do LFR unless it can still drop secrets of the empire. I know that all versions of the instance can drop the secrets, but if I already did Throne in normal without the quest, can it still drop it in LFR this week since I just started the quest? Hopefully I asked that question clearly. Thanks for any info.
The way I understand it, If you are on a new portion of the quest line and haven't done LFR then you would be eligible for loot/Secrets. I could be wrong because I did it quite awhile ago when we still needed 6k VP so I am not positive. Love to see the answer. The best idea I have seen is queue for Lei Shen and see if he drops it, then you will know.
