The new LFR will require an average ilvl of 480, so get crackin'!
Is that a mount!? Can it be a mount!? I want that to be a mount. GIMME DAT MOUNT
I'll just come back when you look like you're in a better mood...
♫Said if you want to call me baby, just go ahead now♫ (Two Princes, get it? Ugh just keep reading...)
Well at least they don't have robots full of blood. Nevermind.
Looks like I have some gearing up to do
Why are people mis-reading this:"With 5.2 fast approaching I’ve been wanting to get my thoughts together on how I should be playing in the last couple weeks before the patch."This doesn't say 5.2 will be in 2 weeks. It just says, when it's two weeks out, here is what you should do. That is, when they announce the Arena season ending, it'll be time to do this.Cheers.
This part :)
So I guess one can count on it not happening earlier than 2/26, but always a possibility of it going another week (or longer). At least they waivered from the "we never say" policy; seems being up-font is seriously necessary given what they are doing.I wish he might have mentioned Galleon... I play way more than I should, but I've seen the big guy twice since early Nov. last year. There was some very vague reference to spawn rates for World Bosses being increased in 5.2, but Sha can spawn half a dozen times each day, so currently that only leaves Galleon..So I have a TON of lesser charms, but I guess I can't bulk up on Elder charms... is it still that you can only have 10 in inventory? And does the "dropping from mobs in the new zone" mean quests & dailies? Or can one farm them by killing mobs in that zone?Al in all, gotta say I feel tons better to have some actual information so I can plan my strategies. I had already decided to spend my VP only on upgrades... so I now know what I can and can't do (up to a point). If it goes for another week after 2/26, I'll have at least another upgrade beyond what I can do by 2/26!Oh, currently Elder Charms work for Sha & Galleon... will that continue? I am assuming you'll need the new ones for the 2 new world bosses...
2 weeks to test, fix, and fine tune all 25M and HC modes, now that's fast
fack...need to finish the shieldwall and shado pan rep grinds so I can be caught up. I guess I should be doing my dailies daily, instead of once a week. :-\\ Daily burnout, here I come! (again).
So if you dont raid there will be no gear to upgrade to? as the valor reward gear is locked behind raid reputation. Not the best for people like me who don't raid. Would seem a reaction to the complaints about rewards locked behing daily rep, yet with this scenario you could always get gear from the actual raids. Now anybody who doesn't raid, doesn't get new gear. Not happy
So...you don't run Looking for Raid then? To get gear. As for the fact that it's 'locked'; most of the reps are incredibly easy to get to revered to purchase the items from.dont run looking for raidi agree reps are easy to get, but the only way to get the new improved gear is get rep that can only be got from raids. The gear currently available from kirin tor offensive, is lower ilevel than the gear from 5.1 faction operation shieldwall. So no gear incentive for people who don't run raids.
Yeah i get that, but its nice to have something that improves what i currently have, even if its just 496 gear that replaces the other valor 489 gear and has a new look
*Goes to corner and start to cry*
I doubt all VP gear will unlock unless you do normal/HC Throne
BTW John. Don't think of LFR as Raiding. Just think of it as a rather long Heroic Dungeon. Just do it.I know it is probably different for Tanks and Healers, but as Ranged DPS I just went in not having read up on anything. Just picked up things on the fly and followed the example of other DPS. LFR is only 3 bosses at a time, and doesn't really take too ling. Give it a try. You never know, you might like it.Cheers.
The part about this that gripes me the most, as with other expansions, is that VP will be converted to JP. Normally that would be no big deal. But this time, the VP gear will still be VP gear. AND... All that JP you have will be essentially worthless. My main is geared to 487 right now. All epics. JP is worthless to me now. What in the heck am I supposed to do with the JP in 5.2? Is there anything I can buy for my alts? I'm figuring it will all still be BoP. I get so sick of this.
