Grrr.. Updating my guide will be a nightmare.I wish Blizzard would ask me first before making changes like this :)Cheers.
This will make gearing alts even easier, Blizzard really making it easy this xpac
I like what they have done for JP vendor, alts can gear up faster than before..
What's wrong with Ao Pye in your screenshot? Is she sick from having to drop her prices?
Oh noes less honor for justice? I'm glad I just grabbed my last Black War mount from Orgrimmar using justice to honor transfer.
At what rate do you earn JP, and where? It's only dungeons bosses, and... scenarios boxes(?), or something right?Maybe my play style is just different from other people, but I think the VP>JP change will make it harder to gear up my alts. The lower cost will help for sure, but looking at the earnings on my main during MoP, I've earned a lot more VP than JP. I was JP capped for MoP (due to the down conversion), I spent some upgrading my Archeology weapons, then re-capped, then spent some running up my LK reps and I bought the mammoth in Dal, and I haven't re-capped yet. So that's what, 8 thousand or so? This whole expansion. Where with how easy it is to earn VP now, I've acquired a whole lot more than 8 thousand VP.Other than the cost reduction, I don't see how this is a good change (again, for me). But then maybe I'm just not the target audience, since I don't like (most) of the MoP dungeons and therefore don't run them often. I can see how it would be easier to gear up for someone chain-running dungeons, since there is no weekly JP cap and you get more JP than VP in a dungeon clear, but for someone who liked the MoP system of not having to rely on dungeons for JP/VP gear, meh. My hunter just hit 90 a few days ago, and I'm thinking how I'll gear him up in the new system and comparing it with how I geared up my other alts. I'd probably just end up cheesing his ilvl (with gear in his bags) even more than the others in order to get in to LFR without having to run dungeons, since the others all had at least one lower VP item (plus the 522 neck when it came out). The 5.4 system actually seems more like how it was in Cata, which I thought they were trying to get away from, heh.
perculia this is one clear guide. very nice."All other epic items that currency cost"I think this is a typographical error that is meant to be"currently" instead of "currency."
Perc,Are they adding anything to be purchased with Valor in 5.4?Cheers.
u sound like a new player, in every expansion it's always the same; by the end of it or last patches all the previous content becomes cheaper, so ppl can get in the level of the rest faster or for alts characters
Discount 5.2 valor gear! In multiples of 5! No more buying a piece of gear and ending over with 2/4 Valor Points! Cheers for the devs!
The best way to get JPs is to run Heroic Dungeons. You get 120JP per boss.Cheers.
You get 60 jp per scenario out of the box at the end.
