Yus. Finally a way to get rid of my 200 badges of justice

^ ThisI have at least 400-500 of those things just collecting digital dust in my Currency tab. Good to know they'll finally be worth something... even if only 800g or so.

Pfft. Justice badges? I'm stoked I'll be able to turn my HUNDREDS of Triumph badges into Conquest and turn a profit.

Justice Points can buy the T-10 stuff right?Cause I am LOADED with Triumph and Frost Badges. Over 300 combined badges there.Guess I'll be shopping on Patch Day ;)

@NetherscourgeNot unless the costs or conversions change. On the PTR the T10 leggings cost 1100 justice points.

i am going to dump all of my badges and BEFORE cata/patch hits. 10 triumph = 120g min with JC. 10k honor = 120g min with JC.i wonder if gems will go up post cata though. since everyone is gonna need gems for their new uber gears.

Dangit! I was reading it and thought, "1,833 gold for a Badge of Justice?! Oh my!"Then I looked closer :(

@FEEZEESo basically, after all is said and done, we'll actually be paying MORE for the T10 stuff when the patch hits then we are right now...Unless they re-adjust the Justice Point costs of the T10 items to match the current Badge Cost of the same items.
9-15-2010 @ 3:39PM
@NetherstormYes, a lot more. 251 legs currently cost 95 frost emblems. On the PTR they cost 1100 justice points, which is the equivalent of 400 frost emblems. Unless the justice point cost falls to 262, or you get 11.5 justice points per frost emblem you have more buying power now.

Feezee and Netherscourge seem to have failed reading comprehension; items only Seem to cost more after the conversion because you two are forgetting that Frost and Triumph are equal to each other in the conversion. If all you have are Frost emblems and Zero Triumph then yes, you are going to be taken to the cleaners and should buy ALL the T10 gear you can before the patch, if you only have Triumph then you should wait and keep all your badges until after the patch, and then you can buy T10 items without ever having seen a single frost badge, entered a T10 raid, or done the weekly quest. for the other 90% of the WoW playing populace who have both types of badges it even's out in the end. for example; you have 300 frost emblems and 900 triumph. the conversion to points gets you (300+900)*2.75 = 3300PoJ, at 1100 points for an item that would have cost you 95 frost emblems you still get to buy the same amount of T10 items (3) you could before or after the patch. and yes, it is a little bit of a loss but not that much. you just have to figure out which side you will fall on and try to purchase you items accordingly. overall i would suggest that if you can buy stuff with your frost badges and want to, you should do it before the patch, then you can use the points you get from triumph badges after the patch to pick up whatever else you might want after the patch. or you can choose to drop them down to any other badge and get some $$ for them. Just remember, as long as i have read everything correctly, PoJ will be usable to buy lvl85 items. so unless they plan to do a PoJ reset with the launch of Cata, we will have the choice of getting T10 gear, $$ or holding out to have a leg up on lvl85 gear. but yeah, more than likely there will be a PoJ wipe with 4.02 (Cataclysm launch) patch. personally i'm going to go with the cash option, since i pretty much have all the T10 i can/want to buy, plus from all that i've heard it's going to be an hard gear reset similar to the vanilla-BC one, Cata Green = Wrath Purple.

The conversion rate is terrible, though doing heroics nets you about 27 justice points per boss. If you have badges, spend them now. If you don't have badges, wait to get a bunch of them (unless you want to convert a plethora of them to gold).At 2.75 Justice Points per Frost (or Triumph) letting them convert is, for lack of a better word, stupid. On the PTR the conversion may be bugged because I have well over 100 Frost Badges as well as a significant number of Triumph and it gave me exactly 217 points. If I had known how bad they convert I'd have switched them all to Conquest and made a significant amount of gold, which if it stays this way I will, I don't need anything from Frost other than tank gear and I don't tank lol.

@podpeopleYou have failed both reading comprehension and basic mathematics. Items cost more on the PTR than they do now. Ignore T10 and frost badges and look at the other items like epic gems, heirloom gear, etc. These also cost many times more in justice points than they do in triumph emblems. An heirloom chest piece costs 40 triumph emblems today and with the PTR conversion costs the equivalent of 160 triumph emblems. Everything costs more, so it doesn't "even out".

@podpeople Sorry, i'm a little drunk, but with your maths there, i'm trading in 1200 badges to get three frost items; 300 of which were already frost badges, so i could have bought those items and still had frosts leftover.let me put it another way. i have 300 frost badges and 900 triumph badges. i use those frost badges to buy three items worth 95 frost badges each, leaving me with 15 frost badges and 900 triumph badges. i then get those badges converted into justice points, which leaves me with 2516 justice points, which i can then use to buy another two items that are currently worth 95 frost badges. So by spending the frosts BEFORE conversion i can get FIVE items worth 95 frost badges or equivalent, and by spending them AFTER i can get three. Seems to me like youre much better off buying frost gear now, if thats all youre interested in.However, i think youre right about being able to buy level 85 gear with those points, meaning that you'll have a handy lead on some nice gear at 85, rather than some awesome level 80 purples that youre going to replace in one level with greens anyway.
