I was doing some thinking over the weekend, and I realized that I have no reason to run the new 5-mans beyond getting the achievements. I don’t need the Valor points after my normal raid week, nor do I need the gear.
I’m wondering if Blizzard intentionally made their new 5-mans in 4.3 something that raiders can skip?
Here’s the deal, if you do LFR and clear all the bosses, you get 500 Valor points. Each normal raid boss you complete gives you 100 VP. If you’re doing the first 4 bosses in Dragon Soul and Alizabal, you’re getting maxed out before you even get to Ultraxion.
I like that Valor is normalized between 10 and 25 man raids now, and I like that if you’re in game, and doing something, you’ll get maxed out valor points. What I don’t like though is the fact that Blizzard has created these 3 amazing heroic dungeons with some great stories in them, but hasn’t given a reason to run them, assuming people are running LFR and being moderately successful in normal mode raids.
What do you think?
