Valor point vendors now have a piece of armor for every slot, mitigating that whole "no shoulders drop except tier shoulders" problem that warriors had this recent patch, among other classes. You will be able to fill every slot with new gear from valor points but will not be able to purchase set pieces. The new gear ilevels for Dragon Soul are as follows:
- Raid Finder drops ilevel 384 (just a bit better than normal Firelands).
- Normal Dragon Soul drops ilevel 397 (just a bit better than heroic Firelands).
- Heroic Dragon Soul drops ilevel 410 (the best around).
Brace yourselves for what could be some of most exciting updates to the game recently with patch 4.3. Review the official patch notes, and then dig into what's ahead: new item storage options, cross-realm raiding, cosmetic armor skinning and your chance to battle the mighty Deathwing -- from astride his back!
