Not exactly. The cap is 1250. The max you can obtain through heroics is 980.

The math is incorrect. The "Tier 1" Heroics get you 70 VP per run for 7 runs, which means 70x7=490. The "Tier 2" Heroics get you 140 VP per run for 7 runs which means 140x7=980. 490+980=1470 which means you can cap for the week doing dungeons only.I would now like to direct you to xkcd.http://xkcd.com/386/

With Blizzard's own post saying the maximum is 980 per week from Heroic Dungeons, and that you'll have to complete raid content, it sounds like the "7 heroics" will count both regular Heroics and the new Heroics.So you want 980 valor points? Do nothing but Zandalari heroics. If you complete 6 Zandalari heroics and 1 regular Heroic, you'll only get 910 for the week because you spent one of your 7 on a regular Heroic.Granted, that's not explictely stated in the post, but it -is- explicitly stated that 980 is the most you can get from Heroic Dungeons. 980 happens to be 7x140.So this is my conclusion from the data at hand.

The implication, though, is that you can do a total of seven heroics, in any mix of the 4.0 dungeons and the 4.1 dungeons, before the rewards drop. To quote blue: "Collectively, you'll be able to earn up to 980 VP exclusively from Heroic dungeons, which in turn will count towards your weekly 1250 VP cap."So if you do 5 Zandalari dungeons and two 4.0 heroics, you'd get 840 Justice points.

It occurs to me after more reflection that Blizzard may just impose a hard cap on VP from Heroics of 980.So do 7 Zandalari heroics, or do 3 Zandalari heroics and 6 regular heroics, ect.

From the blue post:"In 4.1, you'll receive 70 VP for the first seven random Cataclysm Heroic dungeons you complete each week. Similarly, you'll receive 140 VP for the first seven random Rise of the Zandalari Heroic dungeons"It reads to me like there's a separate counter for each type of random heroic, so you should be able to mix and match as necessary to reach 980 VP.

Blizzard clarified later in the posts. There's a 980VP hard cap that applies to LFD only. Running Tier 1 and Tier 2 for VP adds up independently - you can run seven Tier 1 and then a few more Tier 2 and still hit the 980VP LFD cap. Going past 980VP can only be accomplished with raiding.

hope blizz does this with random battlegrounds and conquest points :D

Why were you downvoted for being right?1250 is the max you can get.980 is the max gain from heroics."Each week you can earn up to 980 VP just by running random Heroic dungeons. If you want to maximize your VP gains, you can still reach the overall weekly cap of 1250 by defeating raid level content."

I have no idea. I can only imagine someone either doesn't like me, or misread what I said.

I predict even slower queue times after this change goes live.
