I currently have 4 characters (all on the same fraction/realm) that I would like to reach the weekly Valor Cap on, but it take a long time to get it done.

What are the options and most time efficient ways of reaching the Valor Cap?

Incase it makes a difference for your answer, my main is a Tank with DPS Off-spec in Heroic Tier 16 Gear (Siege of Orgrimmar), and the alts are all DPS spec and, when possible, a Healing Off-spec with Siege of Orgrimmar LFR or better quality gear for both specs.

With gear levels as they are, the quickest valor-per-minute is a heroic scenario. Additionally, once you cap one character, all other characters on that server receive the Valor of the Ancients buff that will increase valor obtained by 50%.

With your characters:

  1. Spam heroic scenarios with your main until you cap. If your DPS gear is near or equal to your tank gear, DPS will most likely be faster. Most groups are geared enough to easily achieve the bonus objective that will award even more valor.
  2. Once capped, repeat with your alts.

The main drawback of this method is having to find two other people to queue with you for the heroic. (On my server, it isn't very difficult; if it is, oqueue is a common solution.)

If this isn't doable for some reason, then spamming heroic dungeons with your main is most likely your best bet due to the low tank queue times. Once capped, then standard scenarios (which don't require two other people to queue) offer a better valor-per-minute value for DPS due to long DPS queue times.


If you have a group of guildies/friends available and can consistently achieve at least bronze, challenge mode dungeons are a time efficient means of capping valor.

Additionally, you will want to cap one character's valor, then do the rest to get the Valour of the Ancients buff.
