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.
So let’s say the realms go down for the 5.2 patch and you have 450 Tapferkeitspunkte
and 3800 Justice. Because of the 4000 Justice cap, you’d log back in after the patch is released with 0 Tapferkeitspunkte
, 4000 Justice, and be 117 gold and 50 silver richer after the conversion.
With 5.2 we won’t be changing current Tapferkeitspunkte
items to cost Justice, but they will be much cheaper (discounts from 50-75% off their current costs). You’ll need to acquire Tapferkeitspunkte
after the patch is released to buy pieces for their discounted rate, or to buy the new 5.2 Tapferkeitspunkte
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, Geringes Amulett des Glücks
will no longer be used to purchase Ehrwürdiges Amulett des Glücks
in patch 5.2. Instead Geringes Amulett des Glücks
will purchase Schicksalsrune der Mogu
. They’ll be purchasable in the same way; once a week, 90 Geringes Amulett des Glücks
can be converted to 3 Schicksalsrune der Mogu
via a quest in your faction’s Shrine. Schicksalsrune der Mogu
will be usable for bonus rolls on 5.2 raid and world bosses only. Ehrwürdiges Amulett des Glücks
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.
