Simple explanation of Currency changes:
1) On 8/28 (Patch Day), VP and CP get converted to JP and HP respectively. No cap to JP and HP. VP and CP gear purchasable with JP and HP. Elite CP Gear removed.
2) On 9/25 (XPac Day), Hard Cap of JP and HP of 4k is put back. Points over 4k are converted to gold. Points under 4k are kept.
JP gear is pretty weak in the first tier (iirc, lower ilvl than heroic dungeon drops). VP gear is also nothing to write home about (iirc, lower ilvl than LFR drops). They're there mostly to fill in gaps where you've had bad luck with drops.
I bet Blizzard either speeds the reps up dramatically or adds tabards within a month, because when people realize the points they're getting are worthless for over a month they're going to quit in droves.

what about random battlegrounds? Do we still get 50 conquest points from every random/call to arms bg win and 100 conquest from daily bg win?Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds reward Conquest.
Awesome models for the Sha. My only complaint is that Violence and Anger look really similar (although maybe they are trying to make emotions that are related look similar, which is cool)
The new LFR system sounds like shit. "Based on performance", that means that there is a lot of people who will get items that don't need it and just sell it as you cant trade them.
That's even worse then people pressing need now.
I've said this before, but I don't think people realize that VP vendors aren't supposed to be a primary way to gear up anymore. They're more like the BC badge vendors, ways to supplement your dungeon/raid drops if you're not very lucky.
Trying to put together a full set of VP gear from VP vendors isn't going to be very viable, since it would take several months to earn the VP, nevermind the reputation grinding.
Wait, they never said they are putting a cap on JP back in, only VP. Something I missed?

valor to justice huh. well i guess that's ok. i have like 14k valor and 2k justice on my main. i guess cause of the justice cap i will get capped out then the rest will be in my mailbox in 4k capped individual mails???
i don't wanna lose that justice which i can use to buy BOA gear for my panda monk.
edit: oops nevermind. just had to read it again. guess it will all goto currency and nothing mailed out since no leftovers.

Take a look at, for example:
Honor gear is 14 ilvl higher than JP gear AND now has no budget penalty for what it spends on Resilience. If things stay this way I'll be grinding honor to gear up for LFR instead of heroics.
VP gear beats Conquest gear (mostly through being 6 ilvl HIGHER) so JP gear appears to be about 14-20 ilvl too low to be worth it. Heroic dungeons (which I presume we're going to grind to get the JP in the first place) drop ilvl 463 gear, which beats the JP gear. Add to that the fact that many JP items require reputation (which could take weeks of dailies to reach) and suddenly it seems the ONLY use for JP will be if you run heroics for several weeks and never get something better than your questing greens to drop for a slot.

I wonder how many people who read these blue posts and info actually read them before knee jerking about them. I swear that a LOT of questions that are asked about the post they are asking about would be answered if they would just READ the post they commented on.
