Justice Gear Versus Dungeon Gear

I've noticed that Heroics in Pandaria are very very easy. i have yet to wipe to any Heroic dungeon that i have entered into. that is really disappointing considering they are supposed to be "Heroic". Furthermore, the reward for these extremely easy 5 mans is gear that is item level 463.

Justice Point Gear, which is obtained after some of the hardest rep grinds i have ever seen in the past 3 expansions (you have to get revered with Golden Lotus before you can even open up dailies for 2 factions?) is item level 450.

really?
Dungeons - Easy - 463 Item Level Gear.
Justice - Based on Reputation - Requires Honored with various factions (Can't even start Shado-Pan and August Celestial yet) - Hard (Comparitively) - 450 Item Level Gear.

What Gives? By the time you can get ANY Reputation based gear besides Klaxxi, we will be in raid epics or 463 gear at the minimum. so what is the point for Repuation based Justice gear? is it there to taunt us?

I believe the rep gear grind is more for people not wishing to run dungeons. As you've said, most are heading into heroics without needing a lot of time or gear and doing fine [which I totally don't have a problem with].

But you get more jp/vp running dungeons and if you do they are worthless.

ideally, if they are going to make Heroics this easy, and Reputation gear this hard to grind, they should make Justice Gear 476.

you could enter into heroic's on completion of the final quest chain of dread waste's, i was almost able to get into heroic's by 1 point. the last quest did it and got a blue which was enough.

I agree 100%. Justice Points have no value at all in MoP and at this point they may as well not even exist.

This would make sense, except you can't get JP outside of dungeons and scenarios. I really can't see a level 90 toon running the same 2 instances and being happy with that.
