Much like Conquest cap system, this is nice.Players now has two options of gearing their alts, doing M+ runs or doing PvP contents which is fair.
Sadly it would have been more like conquest if you could buy gear and upgrade with something else, this is so much worse than conquest points in my opinion.Would need some PvE equivalent to honour points for it to be similar I think, buy a M+ gear with Valour, upgrade with another currency.
Waiting for Valor to be also used as currency for mats or something like that. As some players don't focus on M+, this currency is wasted on them.
Very interesting being Fury Warrior this expansion, not only you are fewer DPS doing spec, but also you have to spend the most valor to upgrade yourself 2x2Handead weapons as the most expensive upgrades. #sadstory
Valor should have been used to purchase items, not just upgrade.
I genuinely don't understand why does this work like conquest... I was soooo hyped for this leveled an alt to start doing dungeons since I don't need gear on main and then realized i gained 2.6kout of total and once i reach that i will be unable to upgrade a lot of my low ilvl gear... What is the point of making this system if you cap it so hard that lower ilvl gear cant be upgraded it is basically only useful for if you say have 207 or on-wards item that you want to upgrade... Pure miss by my opinion and considering how hyped I was for it and how disappointed i am now that I realize how it works... All they had to do is let us farm say 3000 max a week and that it considering we also have caps to how much we can upgrade whether we did all 5s,10s... its just off-putting knowing I have to get lucky with drop in 1st place then I cant even upgrade my gear as time progresses... Its not like If they let you farm 3000 per week max will instantly result in everyone being 220 in 2 weeks....Now once again I don't see point in playing considering I don't like PVP in SL (yes I know many like it but i don't really like the "press the combo and 2 shot someone" type of play), this could have worked really well but not being able to buy exact items you want + multiple caps you have to cross over just doesn't do it for me. I don't want free gear I just want a way to be able to gear thru playing something more then doing 15 dungeons getting 2 upgrades as it happened to me last week with new character and now that i realized how valor works as well am just completely disappointed :<
Blizzard is way too careful on gear upgrade this expansion in a level that I feel generates more disappointment than anything else.
