Why I'm Glad Item Upgrades Are Being Removed In 5.2

no_more_valor_upgrades

Back in 5.1 we were given a new feature, upgrading gear from justice and valor points. Everybody loved it as it allowed key pieces of gear to be upgraded that were either already best in slot (BiS) or impossible to replace given your individual gear progression. 

That will all change in 5.2 though as Blizzard have decided that thee upgrades are only to be available in patches where there is no additinal raid content, if they even reintroduce it, this has sparked a lot of discussion particularly the other night in Exhumed's guild chat, so I decided to have a deeper think and post my thoughts here.

Deja Vu II- Not Learning from Past Mistakes

Smith Hauthaa, the Badge of Justice vendor, is in there.....somewhere
In a blue post (http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2228415544?page=10#183) yesterday Blizzard have announced that the daily heroic reward of 70 Valor Points is to be replaced in 4.1by a weekly maximum reward system. Their reasoning is that this will allow players who don't play every day but play lots on a few days will be able to earn the same number of Valor Points as someone who logs on and does the daily heroic. They also stated that they didn't want the daily heroic to feel like a job, which I admit it does.

Also in 4.1, the heroics will be split in 2 levels. Tier 1 heroics will be all those Cataclysm heroics already in the game and these will continue to give 70 Valor Points per run. Tier 2 heroics will be the new Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub instances will give 140 per run.
