First off let me explain why this subject is important to me. I am, what some people would call "the enemy" or more commonly "a casual player" I dislike PvP and I do not have the time to commit to raiding (add to that I never had any luck what so ever the few times I tried the LFR and by that I mean wipe after wipe after wipe, quit never return.
I won't give you the TL;DR version of why I became a casual player but when I was playing (I am currently un-subbed waiting for MoP) I put up with all the nutters and great people you meet in the 5 man random queues as I had a goal and that was to get the badges, or as it stands now VP/JP so I could buy my characters a set of amour from the vendor. Before Cataclysm released I could buy for my characters a full 5 piece set of the 10 man version of tier 9 armour set/s.
For me that was great, I got a set of armour that allowed me to a good Paladin tank in normals and heroics, I looked quite snazzy (imho) I was happy and quite contented to pay my subs, play the game, level characters and get them their tier 9. I never asked for anything more, no special mounts or titles just an armour set for my characters.
Cataclysm put an end to that, I could buy 3/5 of the items but had to raid for the rest (uggh) so each time Blizzard released a new tier of raiding, I could buy 3/5 pieces but never a full set. The end result was I found it gave me less and less reason to run 5 man (normal or heroic), so I logged in less and less and eventually un-subbed a few weeks ago.
I have been looking forward to MoP, new areas, new talents and all that jazz, but no Pandadins! boo Blizzard poor show! But at the start of Lore's most recent Weekly Marmot - How MoP's New Legendary Just Might Work, I heard something quite disturbing at the beginning. No more VP gear?
So for you guys who are more in the know than I am does this mean at max level there is no gear that I can farm points for?, no set items (even if it is 3/5) that I can buy. Of this is the case MoP is pretty much a bust for me from the start and I doubt I would even bother the buy the expansion. Please tell me this isn't so
