The first are Mogu Rune of Fate, which you can use in the Throne of Thunder raid for an extra shot at loot. The second are Timeless Coin, a new currency unique to the Timeless Isle. You can purchase many valuable items with these coins, including additional Timeless Caches. Finally, as you adventure across the island, you will inevitably come across Timeless armor tokens.These tokens work much like the Timeless Cache, in that using one of the appropriate armor type will grant you a piece of gear that fits your current loot specialization. However, unlike the Timeless Cache, these give you items for a specific slot. For example, you might find a token that’s specifically for cloth bracers, or for mail shoulders, or for a trinket, and so on. You’ll always know roughly what you’re getting when you use one of these tokens.Perhaps more importantly, they’re also Bind on Account. Pick up a token you don’t need? Got an alt you’d like to gear up, but would rather go exploring on your main? No problem. Thanks to the wonders of modern mailbox technology, you’ll be able to whisk that token off to any other character on the same account and realm, who can then use it to generate their own piece of ilvl 496 gear.Things don’t stop at 496, either. Particularly lucky (or persistent) players might find themselves in possession of a Burden of Eternity, an extremely powerful artifact that, when used on a Timeless armor token, causes it to create an even more powerful item rated at ilvl 535. Get your hands on a few of those pieces and you should be more than prepared to participate in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid.
Great compilation!But, what about actual 522 valor items from Shado Pan Assault? Would be cheaper on 5.4?
So if one is way beyond 496 gear, one can collect specific armor tokens that NORMALLY can make said 496 gear and apply this Burden of Eternity to create a 535 item? Or is it a different Armor Token?So Lesser Charms NOW makes the new bonus loot thingee (Warforged Seals) for SoO. Do those stack to 10 and no more? AND Mogu Runes of Fate, do those NOW stack to 20?
Pretty sure I read it was 35% less VP in 5.4.
Did I read that wrong or did it say that Valor upgrading is only 250 now...
Just to clarify a few things--the initial post was about a Blizzard blog highlighting ways to prep for 5.4, but there are some things I've gone into more detail on my own in Wowhead blogs. The end of the heirloom article explains the Timeless Isle BoAs in more detail, and on PTR pages, we've added a tab for users to see what BoA tokens create which epics.As for the currency conversions, the article did not mention Shado-Pan Assault changes, or that reputation items from 5.1 and 5.2 also now cost Justice Points. Those changes are still in the patch notes and on the PTR, I think it was just an oversight when writing it up.
Now if only I could connect for more than 3 minutes. e.e
