Why do you *need* your weekly valor if you're not raiding? (And nowadays, if you're raiding, you're getting your weekly valor by the time you kill 4-5 bosses and do LFR.) You don't need 397 gear to do the heroics. You don't even need 397 gear to do Dragon Soul normal modes. And you really don't need 397 gear to do the joke that is LFR. I'm glad I don't feel the *need* to cap valor every week on any of my 9 85s, even though I do raid on one and may bring any of the others on the alts raid.I think Blizzard should just remove the valor point reward from 5-mans altogether now that they have LFR. Then people wouldn't *need* to do 5-mans, and they could have regular 5-mans for those that just want some just points, and heroic 5-mans that offer a real challenge for better gear. As long as normal 5-mans had good enough gear to get into LFR, it should be fine.It will be interesting to see if Blizzard can design "challenge runs" that reward skill, or if since they're timed runs it will be more along the lines of "who can AoE the best with the normalized gear levels".
