Kheldul at Hunter DPS Dungeoneer: Hunters rejoice! Or if you were looking forward to getting off the valor treadmill, drown your tears in a dark ale. Or three. You’re going to want a lot more valor — and soon.
With 5.1 we have the ability to upgrade existing equipment. Some equipment can be upgraded two levels and some only one. If you’re still stuck with some blue gear, you can get away with just spending 1,500 justice points to upgrade one i463 item to a i471 piece of gear. You don’t get to choose which stats get upgraded. This will keep everyone on the treadmill for a lot longer.
If you scoff at the minor upgrades you can achieve with that valor expenditure, don’t fret. Blizz has you covered with more dailies and another faction grind. I’ll be happy for the variety myself. For 6,500 valor and appropriate faction rep, you can outfit yourself with some lovely epic i496 gear; a nice ring, an on-use trinket, some decent shit-kickers, and a non-bullet oriented belt.
