A thought kind of struck me just now: If the four currencies can now be exchanged, what on earth is the purpose of having so many currency sets instead of having a minimum of two standard currencies (one for the lower-tier [justice/honor] and one for the higher-tier [valor/conquest])?I can understand why they would want to keep the currencies separate for thematic reasons, but at this point it just seems silly that there isn't a unified standard for the two levels at this point. There's probably a good explanation for it, I'm just not seeing it right now.

Well, the exchange rates aren't full, so combining Honor/Justice and Valor/Conquest would be a problem. Blizz doesn't want you to be able to kit yourself out with PvP gear as efficiently with Justice as you could with Honor (and vice-versa), that would just be... unpleasant.

Note the disparity in exchange rates. You lose when converting between honor and justice. This way people will still feel compelled to do PvE or PvP first, but have a great way to convert to the opposite currency if/when they get capped and run out of stuff to buy.If you unify the currency imto one, then PvPers will feel they HAVE to PvE to be able to stay competitive (by grinding out points/gear faster) and vice versa.

Or, adjust the pricing model.

Conquest can be bought for valor but not the other way around...

Also remember that Blizz is also doubling the rate of honor in battlegrounds too.
