PTR 4.3 (Build 15005)

Priest T13 on a Male Troll

LFR Tier 13 Priest set

Build 15005 was deployed on the PTR servers recently. They have changed the drop rate of valor points in raids.

Dragon Soul bosses, both 10 man and 25 man, now drop 100 valor points (Down from 115 and 135)

Firelands bosses will be reduced to 50 vp per boss since they are no longer the highest tier.

I just checked and as of right now heroics still award 150 valor points.

That’s all subject to change of course.

We’ve made slight adjustments to the Valor Point (VP) drops on the 4.3 PTR which testers can now see. In both 10- and 25-player raids, bosses will now drop 100 VP each (down from 115 and 135 respectively). We’ll also be changing Firelands raid bosses to drop 50 VP per kill upon release of the patch.

This change is being made to further emphasize the desire to kill bosses for the items they drop. In the 4.3 raid, tier sets can only be earned from boss drops, and as Raid Finder will allow for just about anyone to get a chance to kill bosses, we think there will be less need for Valor overall. We want to try to match the lower desire for VP with a slightly slower acquisition rate.

We appreciate your thoughts and constructive discussion on how these changes may affect you and your guild once 4.3 is released.
