You don't even need it if you're raiding normal or heroic raids either as VP gear is inferior to normal raid gear. VP gear is even inferior to some LFR gear because the VP gear has terrible itemization.
VP grinding is going to be required going forward, because of the upgrade mechanism.
Which isn't tied to reputation as far as I'm aware.
