ie: the darkmoon relics, which were BIS for almost everyone before upgrades.


I hear it doesn't effect items with procs... so your darkmoon trinket would get some additional base stats but the proc would remain the same
If you are an active raider, why would you waste the VPs? Seriously, why? I see this upgrade thing being something that caters more to casuals and LFR loot.

I hate dailies and I don't raid outside of LFR, so what else could I use my VPs? I upgraded my DMF trinket.

Notice Conquest can get 2x more per week. That is because they can't get into a higher raid to get better gear. If they aren't 2200+ ranked, they are stuck with the first tier and so should be able to upgrade it faster.

"active" and hardcore raiders are the ones who will be investing the time and energy to upgrade theirs loots. If anything the casuals will balk at the cost.
It's not supposed to be REQUIRED that you upgrade all your gear right away. It just gives you another option for using your VP.
For me, this happened just in time as I had run out of uses for VP from 5.0 stuff...
It's now just waiting for raid drops, or getting pieces from the new dailies.
The only exception is if I poured my VP into OS gear.

You will hit a point where you will have no more use for VP until the next content patch, and you start getting BiS pieces. THEN you will see that it is worth every VP to upgrade that piece even further, AND to see that upgraded piece last even longer into the next content patch.

Think about it.
