Why do we recieve so little VP from raids?

I don't really understand why we get so little VP from clearing the raids. Killing all 12 bosses atm will give you roughly half of the VP cap, it just feels like we are not rewarded for killing raid bosses. Raid bosses are a huge deal and should reward VP accordingly, so please Blizzard, increase the VP gain from raid bosses so that I don't have to farm HCs to reach the weekly cap.

Nice input from a player who isn't even raiding. Hard to be as stupid as you it seems.

So that we are encouraged to run dungeons and do dailies instead of warming up a nice rooftop somewhere, But I agree with you and would like a bit more from raids, again, you do not have to get the VP cap though :P

and why would you need those VP than?
since you do normals, you have access to gear which is way better than VP gear anways..

i don't see the point who you'd nee to cap VP each time..

You have a small chance of gear in normals it is not given out on tree's plus its you v. any competing players needing the same kind of gear, for me that is 4 individuals I still try and cap my VP as I am saving for a replacement hat, which I should get this week, the most of which VP's I get from dailies

so basicly, you want more VP from raids so you can gear up even faster?

In 5.1 you will use VP to upgrade gear pieces. So yes, you would want to cap VP. It's also great for gearing offspecs, giving you a more versatile raid team. At the moment you recieve 25 VP for a raid boss. Completing dungeon rewards 40 VP (80 VP for the first of the day), now tell me, what requires more effort, killing a raid boss or completing a dungeon?

Why the *** would ppl wanna do the same dailys every day to get valor? doesnt even make sense. make dailys gives gold and those coin for extra loot so ppl that got a real life outside this game can get valor cap

As it is now we come halfway to the cap if we kill all 12 bosses that is out right now. We will reach 650 VP/week once Terrace is out and on farm. So that makes it 16 raid bosses, let's compare that to dungeons.

Since we raid 3 nights/week we will count 3 dungeons as the first of the day. 3x80 = 240, 13x40=520, total is 760 VP.
Why would running 16 dungeons reward more VP than 16 raid bosses when it's obvious that the raid bosses require more time and effort (not to mention skill).
Afterall VP used to be rewarded only in raids but I have no problem with VP being obtainable from dailies or dungeons, I just think that Blizzard should increase the VP gained from every raid boss so that you can cap your VP with only raiding.

I think he wants more VP from raids so that he isn't forced to do 10-12 retarded "heroics" a week.

Might be wrong tho

Another person who isn't even raiding who is trolling a topic like this.

I agree the VP count is too small. I'm not asking for 1000 VP per lockout, but a bit more could be welcome to gear up faster, both in terms of replacing blue/LFR with rep rewards and with the 5.1 item upgrade system.

The rep grinds are already fairly massive, they should lock the epic 489 gear behind the exalted req and make it purchaseable for gold.

Well, I guess I am asking for 1000 VP per lockout :p

25 per boss is silly low indeed if you ask me.

50 valour per boss, please. It's reasonable enough.

Maybe people said it because there was nothing to do outside of raids? Once you got all your TB daily stuff and the Firelands daily place completed then what else was there to do? Rep grinds with old factions from previous expansions? Not the most ideal situation now was it?

Problem wasn't that you capped VP via raids - it was the lack of alternative content provided to raids.

60VP per boss sounds about fair. 60x16 = 960VP for clearing all raids. Time investment at least at the moment is large enough to warrant it imho. Even 50 would be good.

To be honest seeing as VP is a raid gear currency it does seem a bit silly that there is barely any dropped from normal/heroic raids. Just a little bit extra would be nice tbh, seems pitifully low at the moment.
