    So what's the deal with "Heart of the Valorous"

    A week or so ago a couple interesting tidbits made front page news. One was an increase in drop rate for all the items needed in the Legendary Quest chain as well as an increase in rep gain as I recall, and the other was this Heart of the Valorous buff that increases VP gain by 100%. Well now it has been revealed that there will be purchasable vp from the isle (though 100 vp for 3000 coins is not even remotely worth my time, especially for those on a pvp server) but no word on the buff or the other things.

    Are these changes coming with the next lolpatch or were they just files found by datamining that Blizzard maybe considered adding but instead only implemented the lousy 100vp token?

    How is anyone here supposed to know ?

    Wowhead mentioned that the Heart of the Valorous was active on PTR so at least this buff is in testing along with the 100 VP item.

    Thanks, hadn't heard that so good to know!

    Ideally, it's so you can gear up your alts, thus to avoid player burnout. I think it's a great addition!

    Heart of the Valorous was initially "always on" but later last night it disappeared. It might have just been intended for Test of Valor, or its bugged, who knows. Don't have a toon on the quest to test.

    I wish they would just increase the valor limit since they are making it easier for us to get valor points. I mean we'll hit the limit in just a couple of hours and be bored even faster. They should either raise it to 3000 or just remove the damn limit and make it like the justice points where it's an overall limit of 4000. The 1000 weekly VP limit is just so annoying especially as someone who is working on gearing up their third 90. Also I don't see a point in the limit anymore since we won't even have JP or VP in WoD so why not just go all out and get rid of the VP weekly limit?

    I thought it would be the new valor buff for capping on one toon. I hope that it ends up being that.
    My shaman I guess if you want to see it or something.

    I dont think anyone necessarily enjoys running H scenarios to cap valor weekly... if this allows you to cap in one SoO normal run, im totally ok with this. VP capping is just time consuming, they arent really dumbing anything down or making anything "easier" (since many people are complaining about the nerfs)

    Sent in a tweet for confirmation, just so folks know. Have a feeling it was hotfixed and not intended to be always on.

    I always just run scenarios, make a decent amount of gold and they usually average about 15 mins in total.

    Sometimes you get surprisingly cool items as well.

    Takes me 4 days to cap valour if I do it lazily, one dungeon, one scenario and one HC scenario, pretty easy, could do it in less if I could be arsed farming epoch stones.

    Glad they're giving me a use for all my worthless valour though, my poor paladin has nothing to use It on seeing as she'll fully upgraded everything (Except some boots which I really want to get rid of for flex or pvp boots).

    It's not hard to figure out this buff is just a catchup mechanism for the legendary quest. It will only function during the 3k valour quest.

    So, why couldn't they have just changed the quest to only require 1500 valor ? They already changed it from 6k, instead of putting in a buff before.

    Not saying this isn't the case, just it's strange.

    My first post in this thread still stands ... all we have is speculation at this point. Maybe even Blizz isn't sure what they're gonna do.
