I thought that flight paths were supposed to be -faster- since we can't actually fly,
? Flying from Ashran to Frostfire is rly slow

News Roundup: J!NX Shirt Design Contest & Detailed Conquest Points Guide
2011/02/02 at 5:31 PM
Still relatively quiet before the imminent release of patch 4.0.6 - until then, not a whole lot going on, unfortunately. Blue posts on the forums are sparse and hardly worth mention, but you can always check out our
for the latest fix.
Latest news from Blizzard includes the announcement of
contest (you can view details of other recently announced contests in
) as well as a detailed and informative guide on the new PVP Conquest Points system!
Check out the full Blue posts after the break!
J!NX World of Warcraft T-Shirt Design Contest
You extinguished Ragnaros's flame within the fiery core of Blackrock Mountain. Illidan ran scurrying from the Black Temple when he heard you approaching.

J!NX presents the World of Warcraft T-Shirt Design Contest. We call upon you, the champions of Azeroth, to muster your artistic skills and design the next wave of tees in the J!NX World of Warcraft Collection. Will you declare your fealty to the Alliance or will your design scream
"For the Horde!"
? This is your chance to design the epic gear that all your guildmates will be wearing.
To submit your t-shirt design concept for judging by the World of Warcraft and J!NX creative teams, download the

Conquest Points - Breaking Skulls and Buying Stuff
Bone-shattering PvP conflicts can be harrowing and demanding, but smart gladiators know that if you want to emerge triumphant, you need to walk onto the battlefield well-equipped.
In World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, certain PvP pursuits reward players with a new kind of currency: Conquest Points. Conquest Points can be exchanged for the very best PvP armor, gear, and weapons in the game, allowing you to hone your competitive edge in the ring and on the battlefield.
Those Gladiator items are calling, but how do you get the Conquest Points to buy them? There are three main ways to do so:
Winning Arena matches
Winning Rated Battleground games
Winning your first Random Battleground game of the day
Each time your team wins a Rated Arena or Rated Battleground match, you're awarded a certain number of Conquest Points; no points are awarded for losing, however. Your first Random Battleground win of the day will also net you 25 Conquest Points.
There's a limit on how many Conquest Points you can gain over the course of a single week, and points earned from all sources count toward that total. Everyone starts at 0 personal rating with a weekly cap of 1,343, which is the most points you can accrue over the course of a week. Unlike Honor and Justice Points, Conquest (and Valor) points do not have an overall cap.
Note: There's no benefit to hoarding large amounts of Conquest Points since they'll be converted into Honor (or Justice Points, for Valor) when the next tier of items becomes available, and there are no plans to extend the 4,000 point cap on the lower-tier currencies. That conversion is still rather far in the future, though, and we plan to provide plenty of advance warning before it happens. In the meantime, feel free to purchase items you want as soon as you can afford them.
If you want to be able to earn more than 1,343 Conquest Points in a single week, then you'll need to increase your personal rating above 1,500 by participating in Rated Arenas or Rated Battlegrounds. Only your best personal rating counts, and as you improve and bring your rating over 1,500, your weekly point cap will rise as well -- and if you manage to achieve a very high rating, your weekly cap could approach 3,000. Here are some sample ratings and corresponding point caps:
Weekly Points Cap
You can check your current total number of Conquest Points at any time in your character's Currency tab. For more detailed information, open the PvP menu and click on the Conquest tab, where you'll find how close you are to the weekly cap and how many points you'll earn by winning an Arena or Rated Battleground match. You can check out what the Conquest Point vendors have to offer in the Champions' Hall in Stormwind or the Hall of Legends in Orgrimmar.
Now that you know what you're fighting for, it's time to show Azeroth your incredible PvP skills. Confront your foes. Fight! Win!
