With the news that we're not getting any raid content in patch 4.1, it makes sense that we won't see a new tier of gear anywhere else, but CM Zarhym confirmed it recently in another post: We won't see either arena season 10 or the conversion of existing valor points to justice points in patch 4.1.

This, of course, makes sense. The new gear coming out of Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub won't be a completely new tier but will instead be item level 353, leaving the item level 359, 372, and 379 stuff coming out of the current raids as the supreme goal. With this in mind, bypassing raid content by making new valor point gear or a new level of arena gear would sort of throw game balance and content a bit out out of whack.

Patch 4.2 will supposedly be on the PTR soon after patch 4.1 launches, so hopefully everyone chomping at the bit for a new arena season or new stuff to save up valor points for won't have to wait too long.
