World of Warcraft Guide to Justice and Valor Points

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.


Rewards

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:

[PROTIP]Justice Points can also be used to purchase a Mammoth mount from Mei Francis in Dalaran.[/PROTIP]


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.

See page two for information on Valor Points.

Basics

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.

Sources

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

Rewards

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

[PROTIP]Jamus'Vaz, the Horde Valorous Quartermaster, is not inside Grommash Hold with Garrosh. Instead he can be found on top of Grommash Hold along with Gunra, the Justice Quartermaster.[/PROTIP]

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:
