A new beta build was made available last night, and with it, two new vendors located in Stormwind, in the command center found within the Old Town. In preparation for Cataclysm, patch 4.0.1 will bring with it a major gear currency change. These changes do away with the badge system we have now and instead replace them with a point system. Here's a reminder of the breakdown:
- Justice points low-tier, easy-to-get PvE points that will buy gear (like Emblems of Triumph are now)
- Valor points high-tier, harder-to-get PvE points that will buy gear (like Emblems of Frost are now)
- Honor points low-tier, easy-to-get PvP points that will buy PvP gear (like normal honor points are now)
- Conquest points high-tier, harder-to-get PvP points that will buy PvP gear (like arena points are now)
