The last three weeks I've been struggling to cap my Valor Points. It's mostly because I'm exalted with everything and everyone that can walk and talk and give out quests. And also I
Every day I do
I do a scenario almost every day, let's say I get 200 Valor Points a week from that.
I do about one or two heroic dungeons every week, not because I want to, but because someone asks me and I know I should do them. I really hate the word "should" by the way! Let's say I get 160 Valor Points from that.
I'll kill about 4 to 7 raid bosses every week. Let's assume those kills rewards me with 200 Valor Points.
And then I do Raid Finder part 4 at least once, which gives me 90 Valor Points. I'll do part 1 and 2 at the end of the week if I have to to cap.
All in all that is 720 Valor Points. That's less then 3/4 of the cap! I think all of this is quite a lot of playtime, considering that I would like to spend some of that time on something else. Like my 87 fire mage, who I'm leveling together with Ponder. She's gonna be making my alt army a lot of 28 slot bags when she's grown up. And then there's my newly dinged 90 death knight who likes to hang out and think about life and death (mostly death really). Doing some Tillers-quests, Shieldwall-quests, rarehunting, trying to solo some old raids, dipping her newly dinged dead toes into the Sha of Anger-waters, scenarios or just whatever comes to her mind. It's fun doing scenarios with a character that is just bursting with "WHAT'S IN THE BAG!?" after the scenario is finished; there might be an upgrade for her in there!
I KNOW, I really do, that the cap is the upper limit for how much Valor Points I can get, but in my eyes it is kind of the lower limit too. As a member of a raid team that wants to kill stuff before their expiration date, I regard it my proud responsibility to make sure that my gear is as good as it can be.
Do you make the cap every week? How? Early in the week, or at the last second like me? If you don't worry about the cap, how do you not worry about it? What do you do with the voice that whispers "don't you want your character to be as powerful as she can be...?"?
