"At present, if you wish to maximize your JP/VP rewards, there's simply no option but to run the Zandalari heroics. They reward more, and they have a larger pool of players."This may be true on your realm/battlegroup, but on mine, running Zandalari dungeons is an utter waste of time when you're only farming VP/JP:- Queue time goes from 25 to 35. Cata heroics have times of 10 mins or less.- You have a great chance of being grouped with bad players, wich happens very frequently. Most of them just drop group and make the wait even longer. Zandalari runs need some skill. With Cata Heroics I just sometimes have to explain the fight and give pointers, no big deal. And since I'm over geared for them there's little danger if someting goes wrong. But 90% of the time the run goes pretty smooth.- They are longer than Cata heroics, heck you have to mount to get around. A Zandalari run can last for as long as one hour and a half if you happen to be grouped with undergeared/learning players. A Cata run goes for 30 mins, maybe 45 if something went wrong.- In the time I queue for Zandalari and finish the run, I can queue for Cata H 2 times and get the same amount of points. If you happen to continue with the same group, you can do more runs in less time.- Cata runs are more forgiving if you make a mistake.- Variety.What I do is run one or more Cata H every night until I only have 3 Zandalari runs. Then, I run those 3 on the weekend and get my 980 VP. It works for me at least, and gives me lots of time to do something else, like pvp for example (you cannot queue for bgs if you're queued for dungeons).
