30 Valor per Heroic seems low... is that the random queue reward or just a per-boss reward? If it's from the random, is it still limited to 7 times each week?
I think the amount of valor points rewarded is still going to be tweaked for quite a few things. Right now it seems low, however I plan to do all the dailes available every day on atleast two of my characters. It will be very grindy and a ton of work. Of course that's after I get my first 85 to 90, I will do all dailies and inbetween if there is any time I will level the second and do dailies.My main goal will be getting exalted as fast as possible with every reputation on one character.
Think it would be possible if there was a way we could buy gold in-game in MoP? I mean, if you're really wanting to make this game easy, give us a legal way to blow our RL paychecks on WoW gold so we can get all the cool stuff.
seems like the first 3-4 weeks we are going to be swarming ( and wasting) a lot of VP over the 1k cap. Everyone is going to be doing dailies to get to Revered in at least the 4 factions with epics, and we will be doing heroics to get our basic dungeon blues.I think the good news is probably that if you do the dailies, you can then ´pick´ which heroic you want to do for a particular drop you need. In the past (for us casuals).. it really was a tougher decision, and we ended up doing mostly randoms because of the VP. If we are going to be capped for VP anyway, might as well do the dungeon I like, or the dungeon I need the most items from.
Yeah, i'm hoping they increase it
I hope we can cap w/o doing dailies. I hate dailies. I did so many of them in the Molten Front BS that I never want to do another one ever again. The only one I do anymore is my JC daily and that's only because it's the only method to get JC tokens (which also is stupid btw -- 1 per day, seriously?). I will be very annoyed if they do another MF like grind where the tokens are non-transferable between characters on the same account. I had close to 200 some leftover on my main when he was done with all of it and had to do it on alts to gear them up which meant more time wasted doing the same stuff just to unlock the vendors when I could've had it done a lot sooner had my alts been able to access the extra tokens my main had that were now useless. I think every token should be able to be used on any character on the same account. I'd even accept a reduced amount (like say they are only worth half on other toons) if it meant I didn't have to grind the same stuff for all 10 toons.
Hopefully this also means they'll be lowering the JP cost of BOA items, as that JP cap also makes it impossible to purchase a handful of them as it stands right now.
It is 75 heroics or 450 dailies to get a piece of gear like a helmet or chest.http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6247836724?page=1Someone was estimating, a bit optimistically, that you should be able to get a piece of gear after 30-40 hours of work assuming your pug can clear the new instances in 15 minutes. You also need the rep with these factions to get the gear, so will probably want to do a few dozen dailies for each of the five factions regardless. Note also that some crafting recipes like the leatherworking leg enchant or the belt buck for blacksmiths require rep with a particular faction.If you can commit to grinding 25 hours a week per toon, not counting additional grinding for Spirits of Harmony for crafting, you probably will be fine.
