In this thread, we're discussing everything related to Valor points, Justice points, Conquest points, Honor points, caps, purchase-able rewards, and version 5.0.4 of the game.

Please read this blog post before continuing: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/7029341

Please note: Changes were made (in red) to the above blog post at 5:00 p.m. on August 24th. Specifically --
• With Patch 5.0.4, you will not be able to earn Justice points or Honor points if the conversion puts your total above the cap of 4000 per type.
• Approximately two weeks after Patch 5.0.4, all Justice and Honor points that exceed the 4000 point caps will be converted to gold at the rate of 35 silver per Honor point and 47 silver per Justice point.
• The cap of 4000 points per type will remain in-effect.


Thank you!

Can you continue earning JP/HP if you pass the soft cap of 4000. Remember, HARD CAP was removed (and that will only be from August 28 - September 25) since Valor and Conquest will convert to their lesser forms and any excess will go over the cap?

The second question is currency conversion. When 5.1 drops (which is probably MoP), will we keep some JP/HP and have excess converted to gold; will all of it be converted to gold; or will no conversion happen?


Yes, starting August 28, you can earn as much as you want, since there’s no cap at all on the Justice and Honor currencies from that day, until September 25. With Mists of Pandaria, the caps will be applied, and players will be reduced to 4000 Honor and 4000 Justice – any excess points will be converted on September 25 to gold at the rates described before.

Are they seriously going to remove conquest points from regular BGs? One of the best changes in cata, and they're already going to take it away?


Nope! There are no plans to remove Conquest from the Random Daily Battleground.

We agree that it was a great change!

What will be the conversion rate? Is it 1:1? or is it 2:1?


On September 25, excess Honor over the cap will be converted at a rate of 35 silver per point, and excess Justice over the cap will be converted at a rate of 47 silver per point.
