Cataclysm: Justice point conversion revised


Blizzard has updated the currency conversion rates to make farming instances before Cataclysm more lucrative. The new following conversion rates go into effect in Patch 4.0.1:

  • Emblems of Triumph = 11.58 justice points (up from 2.75)
  • Emblems of Frost = 11.58 justice points (up from 2.75)
  • Justice point cap = 4,000 points (around 345 emblems)
  • Justice points over cap = 47.5 silver each after patch 4.0.3 (down from 2 gold)
The full statements from Blizzard are after the break.

We've revised the Justice Points conversion rate for Emblems of Triumph and Emblems of Frost. When the upcoming 4.0.1 patch goes live, these emblems will be converted into 11.58 Justice Points (up from the previously planned 2.75 Justice Points per emblem). Justice Points accrued above the soft cap of 4,000 will be converted to gold at a rate of 47.5 silver per point (down from 2 gold per point) when patch 4.0.3 goes live.

The previous conversion rate was intended to devalue Frost and Triumph a bit to discourage some amount of farming and hoarding of points before the conversion, but then we came to the conclusion that no matter what we do people would be farming well above the softcap, and we shouldn't try to make it more difficult for them to do so.
