TBH I am on the fence about the conquest changes. I love that it will be "easier" to gear up, it will also level the gear differences. I just can't get past the fact that you get the same gear from botting afk in random BG's as I get for doing arenas 2-3 nights a week. My gear was my "reward" for putting in that time and effort.
Blizzard making people to leave this game trully... This is worst change i have ever seen :(Tell me atleast one reasson,why should i play arena or even rated battlegrounds? I wasn`t happy about changes for arena & bg gears,where only difference between conquest point gear & arena gear is color....Can u tell me please,why should i have honor points? If i can have for start some crafted pvp gear & then i can earn conquest every day by capping max per week playing any random or weekend battlegrounds? Seems like blizzard wanna make this game only for kids,where u can get anything u want,by doing almost nothing.... Shame on you blizzard........
Nice I'll finally be able to get BiS gear with my alts that are on a bad server =)
I don't think the actual hardcore players will complain about these changes. I'm just a casual player but I like them. It's just partial nerd rages where they feel they might lose their "I'm better than average" feeling as well as slightest advantage.
Given the DPS queue length in my battlegroup, this change could mean its quicker to run BGs for conquest and convert them to valor than just doing 5mans!
This'll be great, it's always hard to find an Arena partners for 2's, 3's or 5's that have the same Arena time flexibility as you. I'll be able to gear out. :D
I am still fairly confused and lost about the _VALOR_ change. Could someone who thinks they know summarize what tiers/item levels and Valor Points are associated with 4.3 raid4.2 raidLFR Raids (which I assume are either 4.1 or 4.2 or is that wrong?)4.3 heroics 5 man4.2 heroics (i.e. Zugs) 5 man4.1 Heroics 5 manand finally, the gear that should be on the valor Point Vendors (what item level and "slots")I am still trying to figure how what I need to do (if _ANYTHING_) on off nights when my 10 man is not going. It would be vastly helpful for someone to try to summarize the impending change so we all can figure out an efficient approach to gearing during the early weeks of the new raid content. If you need more specifics, I am having a hard time sorting through the blue posts to figure out if I am fully geared from 4.2 REGULAR whether I need to do ANYTHING on off nights or if, thus geared, the only things that will upgrade are 4.3 raid drops.
LFR gives 250 Valor Points per wing clear.140 for the new Heroics.Zandalari and Cata heroics should still be 70.
