Cataclysm -- Justice Point Drop Quantities
Don't forget the item previews if you're not sure about the price of the new items!

This list is incomplete, and the values may still change, but it covers the majority of the content we’ve been asked about.


  • Lich King Heroic dungeon boss -- 16 Justice Points
  • Lich King daily normal dungeon -- 12 Justice Points
  • Lich King daily Heroic dungeon -- 23 Justice Points
  • Lich King raid boss -- 23 Justice Points


  • Cataclysm Heroic dungeon boss -- 75 Justice Points
  • Cataclysm daily normal dungeon -- 75 Justice Points
  • Cataclysm daily Heroic dungeon -- 75 Valor Points
  • Cataclysm 10-player raid boss -- 75 Valor Points
  • Cataclysm 25-player raid boss -- 105 Valor Points

It’s important to note that once you outgrow content, by leveling past it by a predetermined amount, you’ll no longer gain points. The ‘outgrown’ level for end-game Wrath of the Lich King content is likely to be level 81. Once you level beyond Lich King content you’ll still be able to enter the dungeons, kill bosses, and see their drops, but they will not award you with points. This same principle applies to all content that provides Justice Points, including content from The Burning Crusade.

    i would think they would up the amount you can hold onto considering there's items that cost over 2k JP/VP at 85.

    Because you can't get Valor points in Wrath Heroics? Think about it a little bit harder there.

    So, will these points reset when Cataclysm hits? I mean all your current emblems will be converted, but they should be reseted too before Cataclysm is released...

    From what we've heard no there isn't going to be a reset on point before cata launches so you can cap your 4k jp now and carry them to 85.

    You buy tier items with points, with the exception of a couple items. Sorry to disappoint. Check the "Valor Point Item Rewards" link again.

    Shocking the number of people that don't pay attention to these details ...

    You can accumulate 4k. Yes. But you cannot buy 85 items until you're 85 (fyi, looks like a couple items -- I saw one -- are lvl 83).

    If Blizzard expects you to buy items at 80, to drop below a soft cap, then I want to know what those items are. There's no info on that! lol

    Its looking like we will be able to use our JP at 85.

    But it IS still possible that they will decide to reset JP.

    what i wanna know is, the rewards for jsutice points (blue 85), will i be able to buy it at lvl 80? so i can farm more justice point as i level, (since pretty much every1 will have capped justice points when cata release), when will the vendors with lvl 85blue gear be availible? and where will they be?^^

    They have to give a reason to do 25 over 10, more loot per boss and more points per boss, seems like an ok trade off.

    Also not to mention the 4k cap will increase but only at 85, and the cost of items at 85 will be more than at 80. So you can get maybe 1-2 pieces.

    Since you can't buy level 85 items till you're level 85, and since items cost between 1250-2200 Justice Points, this would be fairly pointless. You'd get, at most 2 blue items (Justice Points are for blue items, Valor Points buy epics and you can't get those until lvl 85 content). So yeah, if you want to slow down your progress to end game by turning off experience you can farm a ton of Wrath dungeons for two level 85 blue items that you could farm even faster at 85. Sure. You can do that.

    Edit: Missed a "2" in "2200"

    I dunno. Why do bosses in ICC have drops?? It's mind boggling!
