Gear changes are coming! First, in Patch 5.4.8 (which is currently in testing on the PTR), all upgradable epic items introduced to the game in Patch 5.4 will be given the option to upgrade 2 more times for a grand total of 16 item levels. This change will be applied to all items found on the Timeless Isle and in Siege of Orgrimmar. For instance, if you have an item level 553 Greatsword of Pride’s Fall and its Upgrade Level is 2/2 making it item level 561, once the new patch goes live it will display 2/4 and allow you the opportunity to bump it up to item level 569. Whether you’re working on a newly boosted character or progressing through Siege of Orgrimmar, we hope this change will provide you with the extra punch you need to take down your foes.Well this is a different way to end the expansion. In WotLK (ICC) there was Hellscream's Warsong where there 5% increase damage and health each week up to 30% as the expansion came to a close. In Cataclysm (Dragon Soul) there was Power of the Aspects where the bosses had an decrease in their health up to 30% by the end of the expansion. So this time we get a boost to our gear using valour to help us kill those pesky SoO bosses!
Maybe Frostwolves can get to Garrosh before the end of this expansion! :)
