The Queue: When work invades raiding

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) will be your host today.

I've been very busy with both my jobs lately. Here at WoW Insider has been hectic (all for good reasons, mind you), and my gig at the Minnesota Opera has been equally busy (although also for a good reason). Being busy is good in jobs, much better than having slow periods... but... it sure as heck cuts into my raiding time.

My poor, poor, guild... they're without my pathetic warlock DPS. Whatever will they do?

Answer: almost get another 25-man boss down.

I should be busy with work more often.

lackinganame asked:

again i may have missed this but do we know if in 5.2 the current set of valor gear will no longer take valor points and will instead be switched to justice points like we saw happen to gear sets in the Cata days?

Patch 5.2 valor gear not tied to dailies

52 valor gear not entirely tied to dailies
Lead Systems Designer Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street recently tweeted the following:


This announcement will be music to the ears of many players who were not overly enamored with the gearing system at the start of Mists of Pandaria. Its focus on daily quests in order to purchase valor gear was a big change from Cataclysm, and not always popular, although it has many fans.

Ghostcrawler is likely, though not certainly, referring to the Shado-Pan Assault faction. The patch 5.2 PTR notes had the following to say about this new faction:

Join the Shado-Pan Assault in their singular drive to see Lei Shen, The Thunder King, defeated once and for all, and gain access to impressive Valor reward items. Reputation with this faction can be earned only within the Throne of Thunder raid dungeon.

From this patch note excerpt and Ghostcrawler's tweet, it seems fairly likely that the reputation for the Shado-Pan Assault will be earned, not from carrying out quests within the raid, but simply from killing bosses and progressing. This is very similar to Firelands' Avengers of Hyjal, but the rewards earned from it will hopefully not purely be rings, trinkets, cloaks and belts.
