Patch 5.2 Valor reset canceled

Patch 52 Valor reset canceled
Stop spending your valor points right now. Zarhym has posted a late-breaking update regarding the currency changes originally slated for patch 5.2. He posted the following:

After reading your feedback and locking ourselves in dim, fluorescent-lit rooms for much deliberation, we have decided that we are NOT going to convert Valor to Justice and Justice to gold when 5.2 ships. Current Valor items will continue to require Valor in 5.2, and will be offered at a discount as listed in the PTR patch notes. Given that PvE and PvP currencies function quite a bit differently, Conquest will still convert to Honor and Honor to gold as previously discussed ...

This means that, rather than spending your valor, your best bet is likely to do your best to reach the valor cap in the time between now and the arrival of patch 5.2. The estimated date of this has also been pushed back from Bashiok's original projection of the last week in February, to an approximation of three weeks from now. This would put the release date at around March 6th, giving players three weeks to earn as much valor as possible to carry forward into patch 5.2. Bashiok also chimed in, saying that the new valor gear will begin to be available from Neutral reputation with the new faction.

Notably, PvP points will continue to be reset as usual. The remainder of Zarhym's post is after the break.

The Queue: When work invades raiding

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) will be your host today.

I've been very busy with both my jobs lately. Here at WoW Insider has been hectic (all for good reasons, mind you), and my gig at the Minnesota Opera has been equally busy (although also for a good reason). Being busy is good in jobs, much better than having slow periods... but... it sure as heck cuts into my raiding time.

My poor, poor, guild... they're without my pathetic warlock DPS. Whatever will they do?

Answer: almost get another 25-man boss down.

I should be busy with work more often.

lackinganame asked:

again i may have missed this but do we know if in 5.2 the current set of valor gear will no longer take valor points and will instead be switched to justice points like we saw happen to gear sets in the Cata days?
