It appears that the Weekly Maximum Valor cap has been removed on the 9.0.5 PTR. The patch releases this week on March 9.
Previously, players could only earn 750 Valor each week, as shown in the screenshot below.
On Thursday, Blizzard announced in a blue post that they were increasing Valor caps on the 9.0.5 PTR. Most importantly, they also added that there would be a cap of 1,500 on how much Valor a character can hold at a time, which seems to have been scrapped in the end.
Currently, on the PTR, it looks like Blizzard has entirely removed the Weekly Valor cap in a hotfix (see missing tooltip). The Total Maximum cap has been increased to 8,750 Valor.
We're still waiting for Blizzard to confirm if the Weekly Cap has been indeed scrapped or if it's just a bug.
Tanks are getting a lot of focus in Shadowlands with the increased Mythic+ focus, and it's only going to get more intense with the next pach, so we rounded up some funny stories, depressing interactions, memes and similar. Here's a grab-bag of tanking experiences from many players.
While all tanks are always needed, things change around the +15 mark, as it's not just DPS that have this particular experience, and if you're one of the least popular/worst specs...
Then there's this type of terrible, which hasn't really changed that much since, well, forever, as there will always be assholes out there, but there really do seem to be more and more of them these days, especially in Mythic+...
And even if you do well, it's never enough for some people:
But, sometimes it's quite a different feeling, as however terrible players might be to you, you're still a tank damn it!
And there are some perfect moments that can only come from tanking, including this one titled "My greatest M+ tanking Achievement...":
If the group gets really annoying, you can always have the last word too:
And finally, if you get REALLY tired of all the DPS not interrupting, the healer selfishly trying to keep those idiots that stand in every mechanic under the sun alive instead of keeping you above 80%, or people dare to question your route, you can always just go with your own kind!
Darkmoon Faire has returned for a week. Make sure to use the 10% reputation & experience buff, and don't forget about Profession skill-up quests for easy 5 points!
10% WHEE! Buff
The buff increases Experience and Reputation gains by 10% for 1 hour, and it is recommended to turn in weekly quests only after you have the buff for extra reputation. You can farm reputation beyond Exalted for Reputation Paragon rewards.
