I don't need or want better gear. I get that raiders need to get valor capped. Is blitzing an instance using the character skill to overcome a challenge? Are you considerate in thinking you 'helped' the LFG team or just after your vp and they can like it or lump it?


Blitzing the instance means I've surpassed the skill necessary to do it. Well, assuming the instances were a challenge in the first place, which they aren't.

lol, I'm certainly not achievement point capped... but there are ppl with no pvp achievements and are still friendly with GL complaining about the patch? Seriously?

I mean wtf do you do that you can't wait for this patch....

I'd love to say I'm surprised but I'm not. Just another example of the developer's playing favoritism to PvE players vs PvP players. There is no real excuse for them to be keeping the valor pts as valor..they can always change the item costs the way it did in the past but whatever.

The part that upsets me and i know lots of other PvP players is the unequal treatment we take. So now in 5.2 there will NOT be a justice points cap yet for honor points they are keeping the honor cap. Makes sense? I think not.

I'm very cool with them changing Conquest pts to honor pts, that makes sense..so people cant have the best gear right off the bat, but the whole remodeling of the pvp system in 5.2 is so that people can catch up mid season with new toons or alts.

So instead of my conquest turning into honor pts allowing me to get more pvp gear off the launch to catch up faster...its going to turn into useless gold. I'm bothered greatly by that. I don't need gold..I need gear.

Blizz developers need a wake up call and actually start to think things out more. They say they are making changes to do one thing..then make other changes that hinder the previously stated.

PvP players are people too, and deserve the same consideration as you obviously give to PvE.

...so what youre saying is I still need to rep grind my alts to get last-tier gear instead of being able to justice grind it out.

Awesome, blizzard, and this is why I'm leaving.

What I want to know is what we're going to do about Justice points


Spend them on some of the sexier older tiers and/or battle pet stones


Ew, eff that.... I guess I'll just have to outside and have real pet battles.... /sigh

this announcement, and even if you have 0 Valor currently, you still have enough time to cap out at 3000 Valor before patch 5.2 goes live


so we have 3 weeks still ? can only get 1000 valor per week.

thought the patch was coming end of the month..? thats only 2 weeks from when this post was made.

Nice math bro

I am having a happy day now.
But I hope there's no rep requirements for the valor stuff. I:

Pay attention. They said the 26th was their target date. It wasn't set in stone. And by the looks of all the bugs in PTR, I really wouldn't be surprised if the patch comes out in the middle of March, or later.

Are you serious?

The post basically says that the "end of the month" thing is wrong and that there are at least 3 weeks left (at the time of this posting) because otherwise you couldn't max Valor.

There's nothing wrong with his math - the error is in your comprehension skills.
Lol @ all the baddies begging for a cap increase on VP. Learn2WoW.

I am having a happy day now.

You're the reason this game is going to !@#$sville.

Oh, thanks Blizz. I had stopped doing dailies altogether and going back to my Loremastering because the only reason to it was to get VP points to get my 496 gear, and LFR wasn't and still isn't the next step.

Happy grinding again for me.

omg get rid of the weekly cap PLEASE!!! this is ridiculous...

If they increased, then the more hardcore players would shoot out the starting gate and get way ahead of the rest of the people.

Having the cap where it is makes it just low enough for those of us that tend to cap every week and just high enough for casuals.

Seems to be fine to me. If you're really waiting 3 weeks to upgrade 1 piece..you're doing it wrong :P


In the original post about valor in 5.2 they said "This time around there won’t be a soft cap"
I still want to hear the official ruling on that but it sounds like the 1000 per week thing is gone and only the 3000 hard cap will remain.

Lets hope this is the case as the 1000 per week is far to easy to reach and as of this writing I am already capped on my main and it is only Wednesday. While the Valor of the Ancients buff is nice I would like to continue to do dailies on my main for the rest of the week though I won't because I dislike doing anything where I would normally gain valor points and won't because of having already reached the cap.

That, combined with 25% less VP cost will make getting greta items a lot easier for those of us who put in the effort each day/week.

The it's just normal/heroic runs to drop better upgrades… sweet!

So instead of converting the valor and offering the current valor items for justice points... the current valor items, will still cost valor (in a reduced amount). Well ...justice ie easier to get. Also if it cost justice, that would make the justice points more valuable and useful. Now JP will continue to be useless for gearing up. Now we have to continue to spend valor points on gear instead of doing upgrades. Everythting is still going to cost valor points. What are we all saying thank you for?

Uh, you can't do upgrades after the patch anyway. The upgrade NPC is being taken out when 5.2 goes live.

Pay some damned attention.
I was looking for the notes on taking out the upgrades. Are you just taking the NPC away or is upgrades that we have now going back the way they were. Or we get to keep just cant upgrade again until NPC comes back.

Thank You Blizz, I was just crying about that to my guild today about that. Now I truly look forward to the new patch.
