When i get a piece of gear, I try to make the most of it. For me, this means getting an enchantment for it.... reforging it... putting a gem or two in it and now i supposed it also means grinding out 1500 valor to fully upgrade it. For every piece? yikes!.
Lets see if my math holds up... 16 equipable slots... x 1500 valor per slot is... 24,000 valor to upgrade every item. At 5 valor per daily... that's 4800 dailies? Is this what Blizzard wants us to do? with all the people complaining about grindy dailies, this is what they decide to implement?
Blizzard got rid of helm enchants because it was "mandatory" and forced people to run dungeons who didn't want to. What on earth is this then? the helmet enchants provided a stat upgrade to a single item and were considered "mandatory" by blizzard. the new valor system provides stat upgrades to multiple items. Does blizzard not consider it mandatory?
For the helmet enchants you had to grind out exalted on one toon. every time you got an upgrade form then on, the enchantment could be had for 90g. EEZy-PEEZy. hell you could even mail it to your alts. With the new upgrade system, everytime you replace a piece..... 1500 valor. on mains, on alts on anything... 1500 valor.
I'm discouraged already.
