are you going to be removing all the gear everyones got to because thats the only way this is even remotely fair. In fact while your at it why dont you just remove any resilience gear from the game that stat doesnt work anyways.


lolwut?


This is just another reason people are quiting world of warcraft.

Why are they being converted in the first place? As a fairly casual player I've barely made any headway getting Valor or Conquest points and now the few I have are going to be down-converted? Lame.

Why couldn't you have made is so any Valor or Conquest over a certain amount, other than zero (like, say, 1,000 or, heck, even 100), be converted leaving some of us with the few points we have? Would that really have been so game breaking?


I have 4000 VP that i cant spend/spend on a 3rd set. It would be too easy for me to buy the new gear with these points if i could.

Wow that's a crazy exploit, very happy you guys are fixing it! (Hate exploits, and always report them when I find them, and I don't feel bad at all when my gains are reduced/removed as they should be)

As for why this is fair, it's done so that those who have a bunch of Valor points saved up can't be decked out in full best gear the first day. It's so that those doing pvp that have tons of Conquest saved up can't go into pvp on the first day fully decked out in the best gear and totally pwn everyone else that are suddenly noobs again.

Anyone who doesn't see it's fair, well you may not change your mind, but you only wish to be one of those elite few fully decked out on day one and I have no sympathy for you.

lets say that you have 4000 honor points and 4000 conquest points.... when 4.3 comes out, will you then have 8000 honor points or will you have lost the 4000 conquest points?

If we buy gear now and keep timers refreshed (say the full 22k) and then log out right now, and don't log back into wow until 4.3 will we be able to sell the gear back?


I asked a GM about the valor purchase before the 2 hour window and they responded:

"While official word has not be released, most likely the refund timer would simply be removed on all items when 4.3 hits to prevent players from attempting to gain Valor exploitively."

Since Blizzard is not commenting, I am assuming that anything over 4000 will just be gone, so better to spend them now to get down to 4000 total unless you hear to the contrary.

If you are valor and jp capped (same with honor and conquest) The 4000 extra will be converted into gold as usual (probably)

Spanner, simple. Because the items you buy w/ VP now will be buyable with JP then. It just keeps someone from hording 8000 VP and buying everything the day of the patch.

How much gold per Valor if our Justice is maxed?

Probably just like last time... converted to each extra point will be like 15 silver. So much for my 9k valor. :)

If we cap our VP before the server goes down for maintainence, would our VP still be capped after the maintainence? I'm afraid that if I do ZA/ZG for Valor points now, and it all gets converted to Justice Points later on, my VP would still be capped for the week.

you get like 980 per week just from doing 7 dungeon runs. with how long 4.2 was live, there was no reason to not have all valor point gear anyways. 7 zands for a casual. a zand is like 30m or whatever. Thats only 210m or 3hrs 30m. Spread that out over 7 days and you have more than enough time. there is no reason why you should keep valor and get a head start into the new content.

As an example, I buy an item at 2:30 a.m. The servers come down for the release of 4.3 half an hour later. Normally I would still have an hour and a half after the servers return to sell the item back to the vendor. With this policy change though, upon logging in my item can no longer be sold back to the vendor.


Well there goes my plan! :P

What you were going to buy with valor can still be bought with Justice. They're being converted so that no one has a head start on buying the new ilevel gear that's taking it's place.

Actually it is. I'm 1350/1650 CP capped but don't have any CPs after the patch. I can only earn 300CPs this week. There was no warning and this didn't happen last season.
