here's the problem : capped points and item costs.how much 'hero' does a tier piece cost in cata? if you need to run 10 heroics to get 2 elementary tier pieces from a vendor, will older tiers be cheaper or set about the same value as the latest season/expansion pieces or is it more like 20-30 heroics per tier piece, i.e 75 EoT items.if you get a nice number of points, lets say 20 per boss, avg of 100 per heroic. using the old system an item cost is now going to be somewhere around 750 to 2250 hp's. if you multiply that, you get 200 per boss, 1k per instance. 20 instances later, 20k hp, and you can buy a helm.and the daily hero/valor is still present -- how much valor will you get per day if you're not raiding content, or need to get valor gear to get into the door in a raid group ? if it's anything like the current arena points system, expect a long wait at 50vp/day or 50vp per boss for a relative item cost of 2500vp per tier piece. if they make it 500vp a day/boss, it's going to be 25,000 vp for tier pieces. it is not going to be more accessible, it just makes it like carnival/arcade prizes or microsoft spacebucks/points.
