Re: Upgraded Weapons?

Loving that the week this comes out our two melee dps both got their 2h Elegon sword on their bonus rolls (after having no melee dps weapons this expac for our guild, including LFR).

Two guys going from 463 -> 497 weapons (2/2 up'd) is going to be fun times for us : )

Debating whether it's worth the valor to spend points to upgrade a 483 LFR weapon /w Sha-touched socket. Not sure atm...

You should ask yourself, are you killing the light/dark dragon in progression yet?

and have you completed the quest line enough to get the gem for the sha touched socket?

Also in 5.1 there are additional quests from the prince that will further upgrade the gem.

Slightly off-topic, but related - once you have the part of the gem questline to kill Sha of Fear, does this require normal or does LFR suffice?

10/10 Sigil of Power and 6/10 Sigil of Wisdom atm : )

We're not to Terrace just yet, but hoping we'll be there soon now that we've replaced enough 'problem' people holding up progression.

Pretty excited that it seems that the upgrades will cover your DMC trinket proc as well. Makes that a very tempting first option also.

Pretty much BiS for my kitty considering that I just do LFR right now, so it was an easy first choice.

If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.

I would assume that LFR Sha of Fear would count.
after all you can get the Sigils in LFR.

though the drop rate off LFR sha might not be 100% like in reg.

Yeah the DMC trinkets are simply amazing. The caster dps version is listed as BiS by most moonkin lists I've found including Heroic raid trinkets.

Question: Are you allowed to put upgrades on an unused BoE and sell it, or does the upgrade process cause the item to bind?

Not in a huge hurry to turn valor into gold, but might be an okay option for an alt's weekly cap.

Cannot confirm, but i would think upgrading it would make it soulbound
