One of the most controversial decisions in Mists of Pandaria
was the idea of putting JP and VP gear behind reputation gates, making you grind to honored with specific factions depending on what you wanted to buy. Blizzard has just put a hotfix in place that removes this requirement for justice point gear. You can now visit quartermasters as soon as you like and buy whatever JP gear you can afford, regardless of your reputation. This should allow new level 90 characters to hop into heroic dungeons much more readily.
The full announcement is behind the break, along with a quick guide to finding the reputation quartermasters to grab your gear. You can also visit Commander Lo Ping
at Niuzao Temple to buy all JP gear at once.
We've just applied a hotfix that removes the faction requirements for Justice gear.
Shado-Pan and August Celestial factions will no longer require Golden Lotus faction to purchase this gear. This will allow players who have reached level 90 to have additional sources of item level (ilevel) 450 gear to progress into the Dungeon Finder Heroic dungeons more readily.
Players who are looking to purchase this gear should seek out the following vendors:
Shadow-Pan - Rushin the Fox in Shado-Pan Garrison
All - Lo Pin in Niuzao Temple
Vale of Eternal Blossoms:
August Celestials - Sage Lotusbloom or Sage Whiteheart in the Horde and Alliance Shrines Golden Lotus - Jaluu the Generous in front of Mogu'shan Palace
Klaxxi - Ambersmith Zikk in Klaxxivess
