Patch 5.2 introduces a new raid tier and PvP season, and so the higher tier currencies will be down-converted during maintenance. This time around there won’t be a soft cap, old Valor items aren’t changing to cost Justice, and we’re adding a new rank of PvP gear. Let’s break down exactly how it’s all going to harmoniously work together.
- Justice Points above the 4000 cap is converted to gold at a rate of 47 silver per point
So let’s say the realms go down for the 5.2 patch and you have 450 Valor Points
and 3800 Justice. Because of the 4000 Justice cap, you’d log back in after the patch is released with 0 Valor Points
, 4000 Justice, and be 117 gold and 50 silver richer after the conversion.
With 5.2 we won’t be changing current Valor Points
items to cost Justice, but they will be much cheaper (discounts from 50-75% off their current costs). You’ll need to acquire Valor Points
after the patch is released to buy pieces for their discounted rate, or to buy the new 5.2 Valor Points
items, but we’re also introducing new items to spend your Justice on, including heirlooms and Pet Battle stones.Charms
While Charms won’t be converted, Lesser Charm of Good Fortune
will no longer be used to purchase Elder Charm of Good Fortune
in patch 5.2. Instead Lesser Charm of Good Fortune
will purchase Mogu Rune of Fate
. They’ll be purchasable in the same way; once a week, 90 Lesser Charm of Good Fortune
can be converted to 3 Mogu Rune of Fate
via a quest in your faction’s Shrine. Mogu Rune of Fate
will be usable for bonus rolls on 5.2 raid and world bosses only. Elder Charm of Good Fortune
will continue to be used for bonus rolls on 5.0 raids and world bosses, and will now be acquired as item drops by killing enemies in the new 5.2 Thundering Isle outdoor zone.PvP
- above the 4000 cap is converted to gold at a rate of 35 silver per point
For example, if I log out before the 5.2 maintenance period with 450
, my excess of 250
would be converted, and so when I log in after 5.2 is released I would have 0
, and be 87 gold and 50 silver richer.
In 5.2 we’re introducing an entirely new tier of PvP gear that will be purchasable with Honor to help smooth out the gearing progression for new and returning players, alts, etc. so they can catch up and be a bit more successful coming in mid-season or even mid-expansion. You can read more about all the changes being made surrounding that in the PvP Gear blog
we posted a few weeks back.
