Yup. They need to go. Pointless (ha) currency thats just an annoying part of the gearing paradigm now cause of tradition. How to get rid of them? Easy.
- Put all blue and entry epics behind faction vendors rep requirements much like BC/MoP for gold, not JP.
- Put Heirlooms up for gold as well.
- Old JP gear is converted to gold also.
JP is an annoyingly pointless thing to grind that no one wants to go get. VP and gold should be the only standard endgame currencies we have to worry about. If a specific faction has specific tokens? Fine do it. But JP just really serves no real purpose other than to annoy the crap out of people trying to get it. Who wants to farm 15-20 heroics for an heirloom or two or twice as many scenarios? Not I.
