So patch is pushed back at least a week then.
For most people, it really depends on how fast the raid reputation rewards get unlocked. If you are going into the patch with 2k valor, and the rep takes 3 weeks... then meh.. it doesn´t matter at all because you are going to be capped anyway before you can spend it.For alts that have upgrades coming from the 5.1 rep or even from one of the 5.0 reps.. then this will just be a holiday sale when 5.2 drops.I think this is a nice change, but IMHO, the math really is pretty insignificant except for those who would have barely missed the LFR cut-off who can now use their VP after the patch to buy the discounted old rep stuff.
Great news, but I really think the perfect solution would have been to cut our Valor points in half.But whatever. Don't look a Gift Horse in the mouth.Happy Shrove Tuesday.Cheers.
excellent choice imo. ty for the change. i been running around alts and my maain going omg i need to buy this buy that get rep here there, item upgrade this ..not enuf time..now can relax and get back to the game
Will I be refunded the valor I spent yesterday, after hearing that it would be reset?Edit: Oh, I see now that I've gotten to the end that the idea is for us to just cap it out again. Zarhym says it's possible to cap out again before 5.2, but I'm only seeing how it would be possible to get to 2k if you're at 0 valor.
More of what we've come to expect from Mists of Pandering.
Great. I already spent the valor I slowly built up over months on 3 different toons I don't play often. Capping valor every week for three weeks to earn it back is going to be fun!
Either Zarhym made a math error, was speaking loosely, or the patch is coming the second Tuesday of March (same day that Heart of the Swarm releases). The only way you could guarantee that someone at 0/3000 today could be at 3k/3k when the patch hits is if we had three full weeks between the announcement and the patch.At least my raiding characters are already near the valor cap, but I feel bad for people who are genuinely 0/3k, because I think it's far likelier that 5.2 is coming the 26th or 5th than that it's launching opposite HotS.EDIT: Though I'd actually be quite happy if it were delayed to the 19th of March, plenty of time for my guild to farm everyone better weapons and trinkets and for me to enjoy the HotS campaign on launch day.
Would be fair if they would do the same with Conquest Points. Its not fair that Blizz favor PvE ppl...*PvP Player*
D'oh! Can I have my 750 VP back please?
There is no point in being at exactly 3k valor by the time 5.2 hits. The only thing you can buy right off the bat is a 522 neck for 1250 valor. Bracers and rings are available at friendly for 1250 each, but getting those will require clearing normal modes the first week if you hope to buy any of it the second week.Keep upgrading!
