I’m moving slowly in this tier of the expansion. We’re still only 1/7 in Firelands. I can’t bring myself to run heroics over and over. As a result, my flow of Valor Points is slow as molasses.
I finally broke 2200 this week, so I can buy any piece of VP gear. I’m debating between getting either the Dark Phoneix Tunic or the combination of the Morningstar Shard and the Necklace of Smoke Signals.
The combination of neck and thrown upgrades is a larger theoretical dps boost than the T12 chest alone. However, if I spend my VP on those, then it will take forever to get enough points for a T12 piece.
In past expansions, this is always the direction I have gone. As a result, I have never had a 4-piece bonus of a tier set. Maybe this time I should go with the tier piece, just so I am one step toward the set.
