    Patch 4.2 PTR Notes - 06/14 Update

    Patch 4.2 PTR Notes - 06/14 Update
    There was a minor update to PTR notes, nothing super important at first sight but Blizzard considerably increased the amount of Valor Points you will get from Patch 4.2 Raid Instances.



    You will now get the following amount of points if you clear up the instance in a given week.

    + Baradin Hold
    10-Man840 Valor Points120 Valor Points960 Valor Points

    • Steadfast raiders have an opportunity to embark on a series of quests to create an all-new legendary caster staff. In order to begin the process of assembling the staff, players must first kill a Molten Lord in the Firelands. Once a Molten Lord is killed, players can accept the quest A Legendary Engagement from Ziradormi in Grommash Hold in Orgrimmar, or Coridormi atop the Wizard's Sanctum in Stormwind. The legendary item questline is only available to druids, mages, priests, shaman, and warlocks.

    Currency
    Conquest & Honor Points
    • Example: During the first week of Season 10 everyone starts with a rating below 1500. Therefore, the cap from Rated Battlegrounds will be 1500 and the cap from Arena rating will be 1000. In the first week, the character wins enough Arena matches to reach the 1000 point cap. After that point, Arena wins will no longer grant Conquest points for the week. However, the character can still earn up to 500 additional points, but can only earn those points from either Rated Battlegrounds, or from the Conquest Point bonus for holiday and/or daily random Battlegrounds. The following week the cap will be recalculated based on the character's ratings, and it is possible Arena rating could now generate the higher cap. The second week, the character's cap from Arena rating is 1600, and the cap from Rated Battlegrounds is 1500. The character has a total cap of 1600 Conquest points for the week. Up to 1500 points can be earned from Rated Battlegrounds, but the last 100 must come from a different source.

    Valor & Justice Points
    • The number of Valor Points awarded for killing a boss in the Firelands is 70 120 in 10-player mode, and 90 140 in 25-player mode.
    • The number of Valor Points awarded for killing Occu'thar in Baradin Hold is 35 120 in 10-player mode, and 45 140 in 25-player mode.

    Conquest/Honor thing looks pretty interesting. Love that they increased the amount of valor gained for boss kills.

    I thought they lowered the cap to 980 if you weren't raiding.

Same thing, except it will be harder to complete this 20-bit puzzle than obtaining Firelord and Pureblood Fire Hawk in MoP.

    I hope that they will make it possible to run all 7 daily bg's in one day, like you can do now for heroics.
    Also it will really suck if you have to play arenas first and only after that you can get those additional points from bg's

    T11 bosses currently award 70 per kill in 10-man. The reason they had to change it for raiders to cap off just raids is because of the fewer amount of bosses.h

    What? You don't think they changed this because people had something to say about it before?

    even if u werent raiding u could still get over 1k vp a week atm 980 from za/zg+70/90 from bh

    theres no mention of a lower cap for non raiders

    even in 4.2 u could if they didnt lower the cap to 980

    980 from randoms +120/140 from bh which totals 1100/1120 avalible to non raiders of firelands

    also i havent seen any 1 complain on the fourmes about the raiders vp issues be they released this so this change came straight from the ptr

    Oh I know they did, I was quite annoyed by the huge amounts of QQ about not getting capped with raids and heroics getting you capped. That still hasn't changed, heroics will still get you capped. Which is why I'm looking forward to seeing what people have to say, because in reality, nothing changed, lol.
