But then raises the question of, will we still have to have the rep? I don't like dailies. I do them, occasionally, I would much prefer raiding.
ed: Talking about valor gear changing to JP.
I would assume not because they realized after MoP launched that requiring rep for JP items kind of cancelled out the point in JP items.
I expect that all the current VP rep gear will have the rep requirement removed when it is sold for JP and the new VP gear will need rep from new factions.
