Well some of the new VP gear will be behind reps, but not all of it.

Do we actually know this or it's just speculating

It's what GC said in response to one of Nooska's tweets.

well, and to put a more positive spin on the words: it's possible (but I imagine unlikely) none of it will.

One of the things I just realized... Gc said that 5.0 was not getting gradual nerfs because the vp upgrades were sort of a gradual buff to the raid... I wonder what will happen when the upgrades are removed

Access to new LFR gear could serve the same purpose, depending on ilevel.

I actually prefer that model. I should really finish up the blog post on that topic. I started it a month ago and then got distracted by other things.

From Twitter, including a tweet of mine GC actually replied to.

- 5.0 Raids will continue to drop valor, although not as much as it currently does
- There will be TWO reps in 5.2, one from the dailies, the other one is probably from the raid itself a la ICC

Yeah, two reps - the Horde/Alliance factions and Shado-Pan Assault inside the raid.

Edit: Looked it up, was in the initial patch notes before christmas: Kirin Tor Offensive and Sunreaver Onslaught.

Tanks don't solo well, don't pvp well, and raid spots are rare. Responsibility aspect no different from healers.

Disagree. Tanks solo phenomenally well. They are also near mandatory as flag carriers for RBGs.

Guess GC has a definition of "phenomenally" quite different from mine

They solo incredibly well, in that they never die. Which kinda makes sense, because the mobs are tuned to not even endanger a clothie. It is just that you can't kill faster than the respawn timer because the mobs don't do enough damage to give any meaningful amount of Vengeance, and you can never pull more than 5-6 together to try and get some Vengeance because the damn things go on evade if you run too far. And if you can only ever pull 5 mobs anyway, why not go Retribution and be done in a tenth of the time?

My point exactly

And i have done all the leveling and then 56+ dailies each day when capping reputations as protection (yeah,i hate myself),so i can't avoid laughing when he says things like that one

Pvp....I don't even care anymore at this point....

Yeah, I haven't set foot in a Battleground since a few weeks before MoP released and have only defended myself out in the world.

I levelled as Retribution, I did daily quests as Retribution. It took long enough as it did without any self-made hindrances.

A certain amount of sarcasm may have been used when writing that post, at least in the first sentence :)

Paladins be a whiny bunch.
