Most efficient way to farm JP for heirlooms in MOP

90 Human Rogue

Hey guys, my friend and I are RAFing ATM, and finding that the lack of gear due to outlevelling content so quickly is a pain. So we thought we'd hit 90, farm some heroics for JP, grab some heirlooms and level another alt.

But I was looking around the web, and it seems JP gains have been hugely nerfed in MOP. In Cata heroics, I used to get 70 odd JP per boss, and 150 for a dungeon (before the guild perk increase, obviously). However, the MOP heroic bosses are giving only 35 before perk.

Would it be possible to freeze level at 85 and farm Cata heroics until we have enough JP? We're at 65 after about a week into the RAF, so we'll be 85 in another week or two. Thanks for your help, guys.

I don't know that Cataclysm heroics will reward you differently anymore... but one thing that might work is actually farming honor and trading it for JP, even if you have to farm 50% more that way.

Should be possible.

Once lvl 90, I think it's the best way to farm JP. Actually, I farm JP by killing the new rares in Krasarang (those of patch 5.1), each of them has a 100% drop of 250 honor, iirc.

You could also wait for 5.2, it was announced that once valor capped you'll gain jp instead of vp.

Would go with Battlegrounds, done that on my alt and its amazing how fast you can farm honor and convert it. Obviously its great when you win (get a bit more honor and some conquest), but it does not seem like a major let down if you loose cause you still get honor at the end no matter what. Preferably do it with a lvl 90 so if you win you get a bit of conquest as well.

During leveling you get plenty per dungeon and cap your 85-90 character quickly. It becomes tedious once at L90 tho.

You can with 5 dps just zerg every heroic in under 10 minutes, and each boss drops 120 JP.
