    It makes content last longer though

    Nice changes. I think all heroics should have granted the same valor reward since they released the troll instances. So it will be nice to just run the LFR and a couple of random heroics to cap each week on my toons. The gear available from valor is nice as well. No more tier but everyone should be able to obtain some level of tier. The new gear options is also beneficial for the reasons that they stated. I won't be surprised if people complain about all the options but I like being able to obtain a near complete set without getting loot off of bosses.

    Make it even more complicated... I think, this hole thing is bullshit. You want gear? Go raiding. I mean, the real raids, not the raidfinder difficulty thing.

    Apparently there's a nice 37x weapon dropping in the new heroics.

    Overall decent change, though I'm still left wondering what LFR ilevel will be 384 or 391, or even as low as 378?
    According to the post, the raidfinder gear will be the same level as the LFD gear and Valor equipment... Not sure how happy I am about that, seeing as how you'll run out of options rather quickly, then LFR for valor doesn't even mean anything anymore.

    Basically, you get a full set of 397 gear and then, nothing... Unless you raid normal/heroic.

    This is a complete joke....Cap should be 2k and 5s need to be toned down. The ENTIRE problem with Cata has been the inequity and lack of forthought through the distribution of powerful gearing tools.

    Why do you think its ok to endlessly farm currency, especially when we always have a current item that is BoE, not too mention, farming all that is needed in a week, and then completely deserting the content after that.


    You know they don't want content to go stale that fast, also imagine all the tanks farming all they need, and then, a week later, their aren't any tanks to run, putting a lock on the dungeon finder completely.


    You have to think about how this effects all situations not just the fact that "you" want it.

    Their are more factors, but I'll save them for a counter arguement.

Currencies have their place, but we want them to be a secondary avenue of progression to boss killing.
    So this means the only way to get tier 13 is through raid drops? There won't be any on vendors?

    I agree, the cap on stuff is just annoying. Or if they insist on a cap, raise it. It's incredibly easy to cap out on valor points per already and it will be even more so in 4.3.

    That's not true, quote:

    While the Raid Finder will provide a lower difficulty for the Dragon Soul raids, and thus a lower ilvl of gear, the normal 10 and 25 raids will drop ilvl 397,

    So it's going to be below 397 at least, so you got the levels mixed up.

    Thing is though I can't imagine them putting a raid, even the LFR one, at the same ilevel as a dungeon, so my guess is above 378. That leaves 384 and 391 as the slots to fill.

    Sorry, but no one is going to give a crap about the Raid Finder or even LFG if they keep lowering the Valor Point weekly cap. Raise it up to 1500 and then you might give me a reason to bash my head against the wall with a bunch of bads a couple of times per week. Not worth it if you can't get a piece of gear every week, and waiting on dungeon queues is painful if your main spec is DPS.

    I don't mind valor point caps. I do mind that a 10man raider who clears Dragon Soul Heroic does not cap and has to do BH or some random content to cap.

    I prefer the way work before

    Why would they post this without letting us know the iLvL for gear drops in the new 5 mans, and in the Raid finder version of Dragon Souls, if they have the top tier ilvl's figured out, anything lower should be easy to smooth out.

    Only took them to the end of the expansion to make this obvious change...

    If you look at the datamined gear it's all 378, pretty sure that's a good indication as to what it will be.
