So next patch I am guessing probably 2-3 weeks max. Then a month of being able to buy every frost item so easily.So I was wrong in the other topic. Save your badges.Funny I have 700+ frost badges on my paladin, but they are equal to my 400+ triumph.So I won't cap at points until Catacylsm
I wrote about it on the Emblem of Frost Page.Also for those who are saying Emblems of Frost should be worth more: that's not correct. When Cataclysm hits, Emblems of Frost will be the "lower tier", so they will be equal to other "lower tier" emblems (just like Heroism = Valor = Conquest = Triumph right now).I'm personally a bit disappointed with this change. Before you needed about 1400 emblems to hit the Justice Points cap, now you only need 345.If items will be about 2500 justice points (from what I read on MMO Champion) you first needed about 900 emblems to buy one item, so having the Emblems of Frost and Triumph right now was just a convenience towards getting your first item. Currently you only need 215 emblems for that.And these are not insane amounts. I've been having about 600 emblems on my Paladin for ages. Then I bought a full set of plate heirlooms and in no time I was up to about 600 again. 600 emblems means 6948 Justice Points in the patch, and then 4000 Justice Points + 1400 gold when Cataclysm comes. That's a lot. Also then at level 85 I could probably buy one "more expensive" item (say 2500 points) and one "cheap item" (for example a wand type of item).I like it more when you actually still had to play some Cataclysm content to at least get items (unless you were a total grind monkey).
Guys, most of you are missing something VERY important.According to MMO-Champion:ONE piece of gear will cost upwards of 1200+ justice/heroism points.:/ So they upped the conversion rate so that it would be a more reasonable, appropriate length of time to farm points for one piece. If 152 total emblems would only convert to 1/4 of the points required for one piece...the game stops being fun. A challenge is a challenge, but to have to farm enough badges for one piece, when the conversion rate is...wildly inappropriate, not to mention disproportionate...that's not fun. It stops being a challenge and becomes an unpleasant farming-game.
Oh thank god...Now I don't have to spend all those Triumph Emblems.
Better conversion rate, though I'll still wait til 4.0.1 to facegrind heroics.
How will heirloom items be bought when this happens? With gold? Just curiousThanks.
The ilvl inflation is excessive in my opinion. Level 85 blues should be only slightly better than T10. When Wrath was released, i didnt start replacing my hunter's T6 until i started getting ilvl 200 gear.
