When MoP launched any VP you had was converted to JP and anything that put you over the 4k JP cap was converted at 47 silver per point.


The great squish was world wide, like a tap were they just turned off a little.

Hey, no one knew it was that low. I had to go to twitter to try to find the answer, b/c no one had asked yet. I am still hoping this is a mistake and he meant the standard conversion to silver and not to copper, as per previous expansions.


The reason it was high previously was that the currencies were sticking around. Now they're not.


So? I doubt anyone would have cared if any valor that didn't get saved due to the 4k JP cap would have been converted at 47 copper per point when MoP came out. Having them both converted at such a low rate when they're being entirely removed from the game is a low blow and something that should have been announced on Battle.net instead of Twitter.
Wait. Gear that was once gotten with VP/JP will now be gotten/upgraded with gold, but they're removing daily quests?
I seriously hope that was a mistweet, and he meant 47 silver instead of 47 copper. 47 copper is ridiculous - that's a mere 10-15% of the conversion rates from prior expansions. Not needed any further upgrades or gear, I've just been stacking VP and JP in anticipation of the conversion. I never expected the 30-some silver of past expansions, but I figured it would at least be close.

I figured with 11,000 VP and over 40,000 JP across all my toons, I guess I figured I would end up with eight or ten thousand gold (at a 20 silver conversion rate). I don't particularly need the money, but it would have been nice to have as a bonus going into the xpac.

Now, with ~51,000 total points, I guess I would be looking at 2.3k gold. Still a decent amount, but I am now wondering if I can come out ahead by spending the points, and then vendoring the purchased items.

Gotta look into that.
Also, this is something else that needs to be announced on the forums, not dig through Twitter like a blind squirrel.

Rygarius confirmed that it is indeed 47 copper for the reason of "not wanting it to be a significant source of income" like people will be able to earn more JP or VP somehow after the patch.

Sorry but it is worse than that 100 copper to a silver, 100 silver to a copper, which makes 10000 copper to a gold. So both capped gets you 32.9Gold

Your better off either buying Heirloom gear with your JP.

Or you could buy Bladesong cloak for 315 JP and sell it for 17gold 28 silver 21 copper (5.48 silver a point)

Valor would be Spikeshard Greatcloak 825 Valor sells for 26gold 56silver 20copper (3.09 silver a point)


I wonder if you will be able to buy an heirloom the day before and sell it back after the exchange?


I would hazard a guess you would get the JP back but before they handed them to you they would be converted at the 47 copper rate per point. Seeing that at that point there would be no new gold price for heirlooms until they bring the vendor back later on.

I understand Valor and Justice will be gotten rid of, so will their be a gold conversion with any left over or should we spend it all instead?

The gold conversion for Justice and Valor Points will be made at 47 silver per point.

Thanks

It's next to nothing.

Justice and Valor Points will be removed and converted into money at a rate of 47 copper per-point.

Probably be better off spending it now and then vendoring the stuff you buy.

It's 47 silver. It was off by several decimal points when I got the info.

Woohoo!
@ 47 copper per point. with full 4000 jp you can only get 18 gold. Eww.... Glad they changed it to silver.
So I think that's...

1880g for 4000 JP
1410g for 3000 VP

Not bad.
