Blood Pact: How to spend your initial valor points as a warlock


Every week, WoW Insider brings you [hide]Blood Pact[/hide] for [hide]affliction[/hide], [hide]demonology[/hide] and [hide]destruction[/hide] warlocks. For those who disdain the watered-down arts that other cling to like a safety blanket … For those willing to test their wills against the nether and claim the power that is their right … [hide]Blood Pact[/hide] welcomes you.

With new raids come new items that we can toss away our hard-earned money on. Only in this case, that money is valor points. The sad part about this raiding tier is that Blizzard reduced the valor point cap in order to force a stricter limit on how players gear up in this new raiding tier. The devs don’t want players getting the new gear too quickly, and so they limit us by creating a stop-gap in our ability to get the non-dropped items.

In reality, this isn’t all that much of a bother. If Blizzard wants to create these types of gearing gateways, then so be it. The one issue that I do take with it is that this really places that much more importance on luck as a factor of early gearing. Tier gear cannot be gained via drops, except for the pieces which drop from Baradin Hold. Further, it isn’t token pieces that drop but the specific items themselves — oh, yes, and there’s PVP gear to contend with on the loot table. Getting the drops from inside Baradin Hold saves you 3,850 valor points, which is four weeks’ worth of dungeons. That’s a big deal.

Regardless, let’s talk about the things you should be spending your hard-earned points on.[hide]Continue reading Blood Pact: How to spend your initial valor points as a warlock[/hide]Filed under: [hide]Warlock[/hide], [hide](Warlock) Blood Pact[/hide][hide]Blood Pact: How to spend your initial valor points as a warlock[/hide] originally appeared on [hide]WoW Insider[/hide] on Mon, 11 Jul 2011 14:00:00 EST.
