World of Warcraft Currency Conversion

Posted on August 21, 2012 at 3:44 pm by Justin Cavender

Patch 5.0.4 is just a week away, and with it comes a currency exchange. At this point of the Cataclysm expansion, players have found a way to either spend every last valor point they’ve gotten their hands on, or have a large stock pile of unused points.

Starting August 28, players will no longer be able to earn Valor or Conquest points. Bosses will award Justice points and Arenas will be closed. Valor points will be converted to Justice points, and Conquest points will be converted to Honor points. On the bright side, neither Justice or Honor points will have a hard cap at this time. Any items that required Valor or Conquest points for purchase, will now be available for Justice or Honor points.

If by some twist of fate you haven’t managed to get your hands on all of the bind-on-account leveling gear, now is a great time to do so. The new playable Monk class is sure to be popular and leveling has never been easier.

With Mists of Pandaria on September 25

  • Valor can be earned again.
    • Characters can earn up to 1000 Valor per week, and carry a maximum of 3000 Valor.
    • Daily quests, random Scenarios, random Heroic dungeons, and all levels of raiding will reward Valor.
    • Valor will be used to purchase ilvl 489 gear in Mists of Pandaria.
  • Conquest will become earnable.
    • There is a cap of 4000 Conquest points.
    • Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds reward Conquest.
    • It will be used to purchase ilvl 483 gear from Pandaren battlemasters on the Great Wall.

With Mists of Pandaria, Patch 5.1

  • We currently plan to upgrade the Valor system as Ghostcrawler described in Mists of Pandaria Looting Explained in the 5.1 patch, allowing you to upgrade your gear using Valor points. We’ll have additional information once Mists of Pandaria launches and we get closer to the 5.1 patch release.

      WoW is virtually unrecognizablevfrin Vanilla, and that's a good thing. I am sure all the Vanilla players will gripe that the good old days are gone, but looking at the new changes, I'm excited.

      Monks look pretty gnarly. I can't wait to see how many people are leveling one on launch day. I better get all my leather BOA gear.

      Sooooo….question: if I'm not planning on using all of my valor points, and they're going to be converted to JP's, wouldn't it be better for me to wait until after the conversion and purchase BoA's? …or was that your point?

      In other news, I started playing WoW again over summer break from school, and couldn't remember what server you guys are playing on. Feel free to drop me a line and I'll see what I can do about a server transfer…if you'll have me back 🙂

      • Yeah you can wait. I was just mentioning getting the BOA gear before MoP came out.
