Valor Point Conversion in 4.2
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
World of Warcraft update 4.2, Rage of the Firelands, will introduce the first new raid tier in Cataclysm, and with that it will also introduce the first conversion from Valor Points to Justice Points. For anyone running Heroics and raids, this is important information to ensure you spend your points wisely before release of the patch.

With the release of patch 4.2 all Valor Points will be converted down to Justice Points up to the 4000 point cap, with any points over the cap being converted to gold at a rate of 47 silver per point. In addition, all previous Tier 11 Valor items will now be purchasable with Justice from the Justice Point vendors, and new Tier 12 Valor items will be available from the Valor vendors.

For example: I have 3300 Justice Points and 1600 Valor Points. Upon logging in after 4.2 releases I’ll see that my Valor has been down-converted to Justice; I now have 4000 Justice Points and 0 Valor Points. 900 of my Valor Points were over the 4000 point cap, they converted at a rate of 47 silver per point (.47x900), and so I received 423 gold as compensation.

The maximum you can have is 4000 Justice points, and Justice will be able to buy Tier 11 gear, so it’s important to go ahead and spend Valor before 4.2 if the conversion would take you over the 4000-point Justice cap and you have no need for the gold.

Dragonwrath is designed to be DOT-friendly. Simply put, it has a chance to copy each tick of a DOT spell. There is no internal cooldown, since we want it to be good for warlocks and Shadow priests.

Furthermore, the proc chance is adjusted favorably for pet specs that derive a significant portion of their DPS from pets.

Our goal is to tune Dragonwrath in such a way that you can give it to any caster without anticipating certain classes or specs getting a bigger benefit than others. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Daily Blink, so so true.

    Okay , just a little test (not very pro test but if someone can do a better one thats why im writing this down)

    1 minute on dummy (4x AB rotation + arcane missiles) (not buffed etc)
    28 arcane blasts
    30 arcane missiles

    = 58 'ticks'

    1 minute shadowpriest (dots up , mindflay , few MBs, note better geared then mage)
    44 ticks of mindflay
    24 VT
    3 MB
    24 SWP
    24 DP

    = 119 ticks

    i've been told that it the staff will probably have 6% proc rate (can someone verify this?) is it safe to assume the staff will proc approx 3 times on the mage and about 6 times on the shadowpriest ?


    At first I thought it would duplicate a whole spell but I think its more logical and balanced if it turns out to work somewhat like this? or am I totally wrong..?

    The new legendary has a proc which changes you into a dragon, is this possible in PvP / a random dungeon?

    The main writer has been playing his Warrior more since he doesn't have much to do on his mage.

    Not only does it rhyme, but it's also the same exact word.

    We likely took offense to the female part because he basically states that all girls are terrible and the only way they can do good damage is to play an easy class. And the "bad" thing he says about males is that the unskilled ones play easy classes, implying that their are skilled males, but no skilled females...

    Its not playing a victim card when being offended by an outright sexist remark...

    It'd be like if I said:
    All men are idiots... but so are stupid women...

    Its ok that I insulted all men, cause I said stupid women were idiots too!

    I'd say any Mage getting the new legendary staff would make this Daily Blink even closer to the truth.

    Well apparently, you spell "don't" as "dome" and use double punctuation to end sentences.

    heres the thing I don't get, DPS has so much room for error but it's a mindless role? It's amazing how arrogant tanks can be.

    Tank:"What the hell guys I have to do so much Grr"

    DPS " OK i'll stay here but move when this happens, CC that guy, DPS an insane amount on this guy while killing this add when he spawns, be told to interrupt 7 times when my one interupt is on cooldown, then get blamed for everything when you can't hold agrro"

    Healer: " Yep I'll keep myself, the tank and 3 dps alive, CC and sometimes have to DPS a "super" add when it comes in"

    Tank: "Good, I'll spam agrro hits, fail many times to hold agrro while demanding more dps, blame the healer when my gear is shitty and lose 50% of my HP on every hit and blame DPS for every other mistake, then have the arrogance to roll need on DPS gear because my instant queues and extra goodie bag now aren't enough. Jeez you guys are failures..."

    In any LFD group I have been in the wipes caused by arrogant tanks have easily outnumbered the wipes caused by 4 other players usually out of mere arrogance or bad play not because content is hard for tanks. Wrath spoiled everybody, tanks walked through dungeons while dps didn't have to CC, now CC is vital but a tank paying attention instead of complaining is hard to find.

    pretty dumb cartoon. even as an arcane mage pulling 30k+ dps on bosses/mobs/whatever i always have a few escape routes.. invisibilitymirror imageiceblock.i can understand tanks not holding aggro vs arcane. but anything else and their just stupid.

    LOL, such a poor victim. Please. He didn't say a class that 'ALL girls play to be good in dps".
    I'll help you understand it.

    If a girl is playing a mage (in his opinion) it's because it's an easy class to do dps iwhile facerolling.

    If a guy is playing a mage (in his opinion) it's because they have no skill and still can do good dps.

    You're jumping to conclusions because as I said earlier, you're dying to be a victim.....
