Does anyone know if it's even worth upgrading our gear? 750 VP for 4 ilvl and minor stat increases seems like a lot of VP for little gain. Would it be wiser to wait until I have all the gear I can get from dailies/raids, and then start upgrading?

I've only done it with a blue weapon so far but the stat increase was quite big, or so it seemed.

Only if you can find nothing else to spend VP on, but IMO +4 ilvls > OS gear

I can buy a cloak that raises my ilvl from 463 to 489, for 1250 VP. Right now that seems better than to upgrade my Imperial Silk Gloves, ilvl 496, to 504. Yes it goes up 8 ilvls but the stats don't even come close to what the cloak would do for me. I guess I answered my own question lol. So it seems the other poster was right, if there's nothing else to spend the VP on, then start upgrading. I can't see my overall ilvl going up much from upgrading just 4 or 8 ilvls on one piece of gear. This makes me HATE the 1000 per week VP cap. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

upgraded my heroic dagger to il510, got about 650 more max damage on it. Feels good man, feels incredible.

But are you already set for gear from the daily factions? Like I said before, once I have all my 489/496 gear, then I'll start upgrading all of it but from the research I've done, it is clear that buying the gear is more beneficial stat wise, and for overall ilvl. My only real issue with this upgrade system is that when I finally do get all my gear and upgrade it all, Blizz will have a whole new tier out, which will be way higher than the stuff we just spent thousands of VP on to upgrade.
