With patch 6.0 expected early October, there are some things which we know are changing. This useful post covers the basics for things which are being removed and so you may want to get now.


An interesting/important one - "Items can no longer be upgraded to 4/4 in Patch 6.0 as Valor Points are being removed. If you'd like to upgrade an item that you think will be useful while leveling in Warlords of Draenor, such as the legendary cloak, now is the time to do it!"



Closer to the time there will be more in depth patch notes.

Personally quite content valors and gear upgrades are going away - it's so irritating, getting an upgrade and not being able to use it for a week before you can afford to bring it up to it's glory :p

Oh yeah defo a god move by Bliz. Just worth noting to make sure you use them upgrading things you might want for WoD. The legendary cloak for example.

I'm sad to see reforging going though. Maybe it should have been made less important than it is now but not gone. It would have been nice to maybe make it a specialisation of blacksmithing.

Ha, that would be pretty cool.  Blizzard is lame and lazy - there are soo many fun things they could do to liven the game but heh...Anyhow, just read that upgrades for items already obtained will still be available.  A little confused bout the currency - looks like it will be a gold sink for the month?

Just read the post linked and it says that item upgrades for current gear and going to be bought for lesser charms of good fortune (Same ones you use for warforged seals) and all other valor and justice gear will be buyable for gold

Yeah, it's basically saying they are keeping the stuff you spend valor on (upgrades, vendor gear) but changing it to be paid for be lesser charms and gold. I'm happy with that change to be honest.

Now, question is, is it worth paying for the few weeks of play - though we should have some SoO mythic beta feedback in the next few days.  I'm a little concerned with the item squish and general ability at Blizz to do simple maths lol.  Guess it depends how willing we are to progress a bit further before WoD hits.
