Conquest Points: How do they work?

Hey forums, I (and many others I'm sure) am just wondering if anyone has answers to these questions:



Q:I have hit the weekly cap, is that the maximum amount I can have period? (will I have to increase my rating to the appropriate amount in order to even afford <PvP Item>)



A:



Q:What is the conversion rate for Arena/BG Rating -> Weekly Cap Amount?



A:





Q:If I spend them, can I earn them back that week?



A:


If you hit the cap you cannot earn any more conquest points that week. You can spend your points, but you cannot gain any more.

Okay, for the weekly cap that is the maximum amount of conquest points you can earn in that week. However, because this is the first week of the season it goes by your rating, which is 0. Next week, depending on what your rating is in arena, the cap will get higher, allowing for more conquest to be earned. I don't know at what point the cap ''caps'' nor at what rate the cap goes up in comparison to your rating.

See above, I don't think it's public knowledge yet but I'm sure by next week some number cruncher will have figured it out.

You misunderstand. If (for sake of example) i earn 1000 CP this week, next week can I earn another 1000 for a total of 2000? or will it only go as high as the weekly cap?

The cap is how much you can earn, not how much you have total.
