I agree that it would be good to expand the pool of dungeons that reward more VPs; it would make it less tedious -- although in terms of grinding out points, give me ZA over deadmines every time! I've been wondering how the 3 new dungeons will work in terms of points, gear and also the LFD tool.Now that I've agreed with your main premise, I'll disagree with your expansive statements about how people level, gear up and head straight to Zands though. No one in my guild of about 20 active players (about 12-14 casual raiders) gets to 85 on a main or alt and immediately starts Zands. That's because they don't level using "best practices" (/eye roll) so they aren't JP and honor capped when they hit 85. It is because Zand PUGs still can be horrible experiences - especially if you are only in 346-350 gear. It is because while leveling they didn't learn and practice all their abilities and rotations so want the easier dungeons to work out kinks. Even then, no one has finished their VP set yet. I'm probably furthest along and I have 3 more pieces to buy for my main set - neck, ring and relic. (I know we aren't a progression guild and progression players, but how many really are?)I'm sure there are lots of people who level and gear in the way you assume but I bet there are more who don't do it that way. Which reminds me of something I've also been wondering about lately: what percentage of players have attempted a heroic FL boss? A regular FL boss?
