While current valor epics will be available for JP in 4.1, what happens with tier helms and shoulders?

Is this definitely the case? Is there documentation to support it? I may have easily missed it and would like clarification.

Think t7 and t8 they will probably still require the raid to get them

It's not in patch notes, but it was said numerous times when the justice/valor system appeared.With each new tier of gear, valor points are converted to justice, and previous tier valor gear will be sold for justice points. That way they introduce new tier valor gear without need for new "points", like we had a number of emblem tiers in WotLK.The question is, what happens with helms and shoulders, since they need raid-dropped emblems ATM.

Those emblems should still drop off the raid bosses that drop them now. I expect you'll still need them to purchase the gear.

"-------------------------------------Yes, this was always clear. But what isn't clear to me is: will there be a new tier of gear in patch 4.1? Essentially, my understanding was that when t12 comes out, existing valor points will become justice points, so people can't horde VP to immediately get t12.But I've not read anything about t12 gear in patch 4.1. Have I simply missed it?

It's always been the case that when a new .x patch comes out (3.1 [Ulduar], 3.2 [ToC], 3.3 [ICC], 4.0 [BWD, BOT, TotFW]) a new raiding tier and therefore a new gear tier (T8, 9, 10 and 11 respectively) has been released. Even though it's a fallacy to say that past is prologue, I think there's a very strong pattern. The fact that there hasn't been any information about the tier items not being released in datamining yet isn't necessarily something to be concerned about. It's always been the case that the tier items haven't been datamined till the end of the ptr testing because the devs need to know the full extent of class changes before they can make tier items, otherwise we get things like the holy paladin tier 11 that's completely useless because the changes they've done to holy paladins were after the fact. TL;DR version: don't worry, there will most definitely be a new gear tier in 4.1.
