Will those 496 rings be purchasable with Valor or gold?Cheers.I remember somewhere that said Bliz was adding VP gear to the two factions. I'm guessing the rings are what they were talking about.As for all these Arcane Mage nerfs, they're definitely justified. An Arcane Mage I regularly raid with can beat me in static DPS even though he's 10 iLvls below me, and with only his 2p bonus. Now personally, i'd rather he not get nerfed. More DPS = faster kills = more loot for the guild. However, for people who can and do regularly whine about even slight class imbalances, I can see why they're making the changes.
To those crying about nerfs, I say compensate with skill. Downvote away!Forums don't have a rating system though ;o (No I wouldn't have downvoted).

Will those 496 rings be purchasable with Valor or gold?Cheers.All of the items from the faction-rep in 5.2 ( ie, the one you gain by doing dailies) are bought using gold. Do you really think the devs will make you grind an entirely new faction to Exalted only to have to spend VP to buy a ring that is lower ilvl than even the current 5.2 LFR. In other words you need to get exalted with the faction, spend 1250 VP to buy a ring that is 496 while LFR is dropping 502 stuff?Compare that to the 5.1 reps, where you only had to grind to honored to spend 1250 VP to buy a ring that was 496 while LFR was dropping 483.The gear you spend VP on will be on the other reputation (shadow pan assault) and is gained by killing bosses in the raid. the gear you buy is 522 ( ie, higher than LFR).
Woo! More Arcane nerfs! I love being useless!Woo! More Arcane nerfs! I love being useless too!I mean ignoring that arcane has been in the top 3 dps specs for a few months now, and their mana management is completely trivialized...But oh no, now you guys man only be like...in the top 6 dps instead!I started playing on Mage back in old days and Mage has always been in top 3 dps but the difference was that they died so ....ing fast. And i'm about 5th in dps and thous mages in top3 are using Rune of Power and I use Invecation which is getting nerfed badly. From 25% damage buff to 15% is a big nerf... And I love Arcane spec but yeah I have fed up of using only 3 spells. Its so damn boring.
Do you really think the devs will make you grind an entirely new faction to Exalted only to have to spend VP to buy a ring that is lower ilvl than even the current 5.2 LFR? I don't know. That's why I'm asking the question.And, they are equivalent to the Shieldwall rings, which are bought with Valor. But, I agree that it would make more logical sense for them to be bought with gold.Cheers.
LOL - Just saw on mmo-champ that they are actually purchased with Valor - 937 Valor.Cheers.
I can't wait for all that will be happening. A new war, between factions, and between all servers, in the quest to unlock all that is The Isle of Thunder! I will be there on day one. After my dailies are done, I will be hunting . . . So watch out.
RIP: Justice Snare.You will be missed.Oh well, still using justice for all my face-smashing needs.But talents!
