Valor upgrades are back and they are SO worth it. I ran all mythic dungeons and one LFR tonight, and went from iLvl 706 to 710. My DPS went up 8-10K. If we all upgrade our gear this way we will roll heroic HFC.
iLvl 711 now, for running some dungeons
I'm already INCREDIBLY tired of this - chain-running LFRs and timewalking dungeons and stuffing mythics in there has definitely honed my dps rotation, though.
I dunno, like @ryder said yesterday: "This is what I love about WoW... running stuff with guildies while on Mumble, hanging out, having fun". We had a blast doing valor farming over the last couple of days. With pugs it sucks, yeah.
Which is why I look forward to the xpac, because everyone will be leveling again and that is when I have the most fun. Not really the leveling, but having 4 to 15 people on the server at the same time.
Just wanted to reiterate this post. As someone just coming back from a long break. These upgrades are really valuable to get me back up to a reasonable ilvl.
If anyone wants to valor farm, let me know! I'm sure there's plenty of us who still need to upgrade stuff. It's more fun with friends
It's ONLY fun with friends.
Fixed that for you
Unless you're a masocist for pugs.
