The Basics

Justice Points are one of the two brand new dungeon and raid currencies introduced in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Replacing [Emblems of Frost] and [Emblems of Triumph], Justice Points are now the new lower-level PvE currency and can be used to purchase gear and other rewards that are PvE oriented. Justice Points currently have a hard cap of 4,000. Once that total has been reached players must first spend the excess before they will be able to accumulate any additional points. To view the amount of Justice Points your character currently has simply bring up your Character Info (C) and click on the "Currency" tab.


Sources

Justice Points are awarded for defeating bosses in Burning Crusade and Wraith of the Lich King dungeons and raids (up to level 80). Dungeons and raids below level 70 do not award Justice Points. Justice Points will also be rewarded for defeating bosses in Cataclysm dungeons and also for completing any dungeon that was initated by using the Dungeon Finder tool. To avoid stockpiling of Justice Points once content has been “out-leveled” players will no longer be awarded any points for it. For example players level 81 and above will receive no Justice Points for participating in any Burning Crusade or Wrath of the Lich King content.

Looking to spend your hard earned Justice Points? Justice Points can be exchanged at a vendor known as the “Justice Quartermaster”. Here are the current (as of Patch 4.1.0) names and locations of those venders:

Some examples of current rewards purchasable with Justice Points can be found below:



Conversion

As mentioned above Justice Points took the place of [Emblem of Triumph] and [Emblem of Frost]. However, while these emblems are now obsolete, players did receive credit for them. When players first logged on after the release of Patch 4.0.1, all [Emblem of Triumph] and [Emblem of Frost] were changed into Justice Points.

The formula used for conversion was:

Justice Points = 11.58 * (EoT + EoF)

Lower currencies such as [Emblem of Valor], [Emblem of Heroism], and [Emblem of Conquest] were converted to gold instead of Justice Points at a rate of 5G 50S per emblem. [Badges of Justice] were also converted to gold at a rate of 1G 83S 30C per badge.
