As we were promised, the latest Blizzcast episode talked some about the Badge of Justice system, and where they want to take it in Wrath of the Lich King. Specifically, Tigole said the following:
- Badges will definitely be back in Wrath, in some form.
- Like how it's ended up in BC, they want badges to appear in both Heroics and raids.
- However, they want to stratify it more, so it's not just one gigantic pool of items. (They also want to spread the vendors around the world, so it's not just "one dude in Shattrath and one dude out on the Isle of Quel'Danas"; this sounds like an annoyance to me, and at any rate will not make a real difference in how the system works.) Proposed stratification options include:
- "A token from different levels of content" as well as badges that would need to be turned in for the different levels of items
- Different kinds of badges
