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 ;D
It's ONLY fun with friends.
Fixed that for you
Unless you're a masocist for pugs.
