Mists of Pandaria is going to make it easier for you to earn Valor points on your alts once your main character is capped for the week. The Valor of the Ancients buff increases the Valor earned on all of your characters on a realm by 50%, after one character has capped for the week. This comes along with another change to Valor points that limits the amount you may hold at any time to 3,000 per character.

Hey, I'm an alt-oholic and this sounds encouraging since I cant squeeze in the time to earn valor for every toon.

However, with 3 toons with actual used dual specs/offsets, I tend to hold on to valor, to not conflict with likely potential drops (if running the same 3 dungeons constantly, for example). With 2200 being the most expensive item at the new 3k cap... I'm gonna be a lil worried about my point spending flexibility.

Anyone else concerned about this?

I think it sounds great too since I'm an alt-oholic as well. The dual spec thing doesn't concern me too much though because my main is the only one who has ever really used both specs (ret and prot) and I always used my VP to buy my ret gear first, then started on my tanking set. I only buy VP gear if it's considered to be best in slot (or if I am having no luck getting a piece to drop), then there's no conflict with drops. This has always worked well for me, but someone else's mileage may vary of course.

I guess it depends on how the content flow or gear curve works out. I, too, am an altoholic with 10 85's on my main realm. All 10 have been LFR geared for months now leaving me bored to tears and basically not playing for the last several months except my 2 raid nights/week on my main.

If mounts and pets are to be shared (leaving no reason to farm them) and points are accelerated (leaving little reason to get them), then what, exactly, is it they expect us to do?

If Valor buys anything useful (which it currently doesn't, really) and/or they bump up the VP offerings along with the current gear curve, then it may be a different story.

Don't get me wrong, I like the idea that I can actually use all those 100+ mounts and pets on whatever toon I happen to feel like playing; I think that's really cool. And I like the "alt bonus" of making VP farming a bit easier. I just hope they will be giving us something to actually do. Here's hoping that whole challenge mode thing is fun I guess.
