This is great news for us with alts, I really didn't look forward to grind reputation on several characters.But I bet this will cause yet another " too casual friendly" debate.
That was fast.
I am disappoint.
Awesome! I generally don't rep grind on alts. So, I'm happy.
I'm not surprised this happened. Keep in mind Valor gear will (for now) still need reputation.
I don't see why it would be part of the "too casual" debate.....by the time you got the rep up most of the gear would've been useless seeing as JP is 450 and heroic gear is 463. If they change the valor then that debate could happen
Well, that thankfully didn't take long. When they had first announced that even Justice-level gear would require reputation, I knew it was a really terrible idea; giving players who chose to level mainly through instances nothing to spend their Justice points, not even a cursory selection of gear from a Horde/Alliance vendor, was just asking for trouble. Even doing one or two of the factions while you leveled wouldn't have helped, since gear of each armor type is spread out among all of the factions.I don't know who came up with that bright idea, but thankfully someone convinced them to change their mind.
Crafted 450 PvP blues are the exact same as 450 PvE blues, so it's either grind rep or spend gold to get into heroics. Personally, I hit 440 iLevel about 15 minutes after hitting 90 and then capped my JP about 20 dungeons ago. This is good news.
If you are confused about findind Lo Pin, the 2nd trader in Townlong Steppes (like I was) his name is spelled wrong. His actual name is Commander Lo Ping Commander Lo Ping
It just had not make sense to farm rep, at the point you have enough rep to buy these you already have better one from heroics.
This makes me happy, because the 4000 JP I had saved stopped being useless, and tonight I'll be able to start on heroics.
well that was quickly :P
A little clarification please, I'll be hitting 90 this week so I haven't been looking at rep gear just yet. I want to make sure I'm spending my JP points wisely.I was confused with the "Shado-Pan and August Celestial factions will no longer require Golden Lotus faction to purchase this gear."They are they removing the rep requirement "period" for the gear, had to be honored to purchase the gear before so now you can just buy the gear when you are 90 with JP points. correct?When I reread the comment from Blizz it seemed like you used to need Golden Lotus rep to get the other factions gear. As I look at it you get JP gear at honored (different pieces per faction).
Thank you, its what I thought but wanted to be 100%:)
