About time we get to know the amounts from bosses:) Great!
Still the crucial piece of the jigsaw missing: what will various items cost, in JP/VP?
Seems like it will take longer to get gear with points than it did to get gear with emblems. I like this idea.
I believe MMO-Champion has posted the costs for items, at least the blue justice points gear. Hopefully Wowhead will do the same in a not so distant future!Justice Points RewardsValor Points Rewards
Why do 25 man and 10 man bosses give different point values considering the new focus on 10/25 just being playstyle differences, rather than difficulty differences?
Prices, as of 9/27/2010 (subject to change):Valor:(Epic, ilvl 359)Relics: 800Cloaks, Rings: 1250Boots, Gloves, Trinkets: 1650Chest: 2200Justice:(Rare, ilvl 346)Weapon, Shield, Held in Off Hand: 950Neck: 1250Gloves, Shoulders, Belt: 1650Chest, Helm, Legs: 2200
I can't believe that our heroic emblems are not even going to be good for epic items. Seems a little bit lame imho. Altho nothing is final yet so could change.
Not to mention, you're spending Justice points on blues.I'm also wondering if they're planning to make badge gear a tiny bit less competitive -- good enough for a boost, but not so good that you wouldn't replace it by doing the content it's intended for.
Interesting. So for LK Heroics, each boss will be 16 JPs and you'll get 23 JPs for finishing the daily.One would think that you'd get 32 for the daily, but I guess they've downed it to 23 to try and encourage groups to stop skipping bosses.Cheers.
Why two tiers? Did they not learn from the ridiculousness that was the Wrath badge system?Have one currency and scale the cost of the gear through the progression like they have been doing on PvP for years!
This announcement actually makes me curious as to why Blizzard chose the conversion ratios that it did.Pre-4.0.1 Random Daily Heroic = 2 Emblem of Frost/Triumph (EoF/EoT)Post4.0.1 Random Daily Heroic = 23 Justice Points (JP)Which would mean: 1 EoF/EoT = 11.5 JPHowever, Blizzard has stated that the conversion ratio during the 4.0.1 patch will be:1 EoF/EoT = 11.58 JPIt seems to me that Post-4.0.1 Justice Points are "worth" less than Pre-4.0.1, which may be due to the change in difficulty based on talent changes, etc., but it still seems a bit odd to me that they would increase it by such a minuscule amount.If you are curious, with the cap being at 4000 JP, it will take only 346 EoF/EoT to reach the cap using the 1:11.58 conversion ratio, while it would take 348 EoF/EoT if the conversion ratio was set to 1:11.5; a whopping difference of 2 Emblems, which is the equivalent of 1 Raid Boss.
