    Buying Valor Points

    Hey all,

    just stumbled across someone in trade chat who was selling a crafted BOE gear that was already upgraded via Valor Points (was 1/2 and had iLvl 500) but still showing as "Bind on Equip". Not sure if this is really possible or only showing as BOE when posted (and I didn't want to waste my own VP just to try). I also don't know if this is intended by Blizzard and will stay like this. But since VP is one of the most precious goods, due to the weekly limitation, I think it can be quite nice to have other people spend their VP for upgrading your chars items for some coins (because you know, money doesn't matter for us in the end).

    Just wanted to share this with you. And if anybody wants to try to upgrade a BOE item and see if it remains BOE, please confirm back here!

    At least I myself am eagerly willing to pay some gold to get BOE's upgraded for my chars.

    Cheers,
    Dizzy

    Upgrading an item is SUPPOSED to make it automatically bind, and there is NO warning (like if you reforge something that isn't bound yet).

    Unlikely, a person found some loophole that shouldn't exist.

    Likely, a person linked the item from Wowhead or WowDB, and is attempting to pass a baseline item off as an upgraded one.

    I know, thats what made me so curious. Because if it would work- I'd love it... But as I mentioned before, I dont have any VP on hand that I want to try it with, especially since I dont think you get a refund like for items you buy by mistake.

    I recently made a stupid mistake of upgrading my chest 1/2 and then erroneously my cloak also 1/2 - GM responded that they cannot refund valors for upgrades, yet. If ever.

    Not the same thing, I know, but BOA gear that is upgraded stays BOA. I had my scribe make the epic BOA staff, sent it to alt #2 to upgrade it once, sent it to alt #3 to upgrade again, then sent it to my main for use.

    Someone with some gold (and spare valor points (so not me ><)) should give this a test.

    Ideally, losing the opportunity to sell the piece wouldn't make you cry. So a BiS crafted item would work...

    ... oh wait. I should do this on my alt (I mean the most awesome warlock ever!)

    Hmmmm the slight hitch is that I've (alter egos / alts are too difficult for my (our) brain on a long day) only just hit 90 and will need to scrounge the 750 valor to check it out... but I'll report back when I'm done.

    Since I really don't care about PVE, I decided to give it a try. [Gloves of Creation] were used and upgraded once. Upon upgrading them once, they switched from BoE to BoP, and were untradable.
