Between the Timewalking token system and Apexis Crystals, World of Warcraft has been providing players with a variety of currencies to purchase rewards after specifically removing those currencies at the start of the current expansion. Patch 6.2.3 makes the most decisive move in that direction by simply bringing Valor back as a currency, albeit just used for upgrading equipment by up to 10 item levels. Players can earn Valor by Heroic and Mythic dungeon runs as well as bonus events and the first Raid Finder of a given week.
This patch will also introduce a new set of Timewalking dungeons via a Cataclysm dungeon rotation, as well as adding Pit of Saron to Wrath of the Lich King rotations and Magister’s Terrace to The Burning Crusade rotation. On top of all of that, the patch will add new gear upgrades and new Heirloom trinkets to Mythic dungeons, giving players more rewards for various forms of content. The patch is expected to hit the game’s test servers at some point in the near future.
