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.
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?
