Valor Points are one of the two brand new dungeon and raid currencies introduced in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Valor Points are considered to be the new  upper-level PvE currency, with Justice Points being the new lower-level currency. Players can gain no more than 1250 Valor Points per week.


Unlike Justice Points, Valor Points can only be obtained by completing Cataclysm raid instances such as Baradin Hold and Blackwing Descent. Valor Points will also be awarded for completing the Cataclysm daily Heroic dungeon run. Because of the limited places Valor Points can be obtained reaching the 1250 weekly cap can be a difficult task.

As of Patch 4.1.0 Valor Points are rewarded as such for each of the above mentioned tasks:

Objective Total Points
  • Complete the Cataclysm daily Heroic dungeon run
70 Valor Points
  • Defeat a Cataclysm 10-player boss
70 Valor Points
  • Defeat a Cataclysm 25-player boss
90 Valor Points


Once you have collected some Valor Points it is likely that you will want to spend them. Valor Points can be spent at a variety of vendors known as “Valorous Quartermasters”. These special Quartermasters can be found in the following locations:

NPC Name Location
Alliance Faldren Tillsdale Command Center, Stormwind City
Horde Jamus’Vaz Grommash Hold, Orgrimmar

Once at these vendors players will be able to choose from a slew of Item Level 359 Epic ger, which costs around 700-2200 Valor Points depending on what item slot the reward will fill. Items purchased can be later upgraded to the Heroic versions by obtaining an Essence of the Forlorn and converting it at the above listed Valorous Quartermasters.

Two examples of the rewards currently purchasable in Patch 4.1.0 with Valor Points can be found below:
