Warlords of Draenor World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

Valor Points are the upper-level currency rewarded for participating in PvE encounters, typically raids, daily random Heroic mode dungeons, and various daily or weekly quests. The lower-level PvE currency, that was rewarded from heroic mode dungeons in previous expansions, was awarded in the form of Justice points.

In Patch 4.3

Up to item level 397 items will be available for purchase with Valor points along with the following changes:[2]

  • Looking for Dungeon — 150 Valor Points VP per run, with a cap of seven runs per week. All Cataclysm heroic dungeons introduced in 4.0, 4.1, and 4.3, will provide 150 Valor Points Valor per run.
  • Looking for Raid — 250 Valor Points VP per run, with a cap of 500 Valor Points per week. The 4.3 raid, Dragon Soul, will be split into two separate raids for the Raid Finder. While individual bosses do not drop Valor when using the Raid Finder, you will receive 250 Valor Points Valor for completing each Dragon Soul raid. Each boss will only drop loot for you once per week, but you will continue to get the 250 Valor Points Valor for completing each Raid Finder raid, up to the 500 Valor Points cap.
  • 10 player World of Warcraft: Cataclysm raid boss — 115 Valor Points VP. There are nine bosses per week, counting Baradin Hold.

In Patch 4.2

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

As of Patch 4.2 and part of the introduction of a new raid tier (Tier 12), all Valor points were converted to Justice points up to a cap of 4000 with excess being converted to money at a rate of 1/47s and Tier 11 items will be purchasable with Justice points.[3] Presumably, this conversion will take place each time a new raid tier is released.

New Valor point totals for clearing new Firelands raid and Baradin Hold:[4]

Players Firelands Raid Baradin Hold Firelands Raid + Baradin Hold
10-Man 840   Valor Points Valor Points 120   Valor Points Valor Points 960   Valor Points Valor Points
25-Man 980   Valor Points Valor Points 140   Valor Points Valor Points 1120   Valor Points Valor Points

Temporary sellback policy

Point Conversion Sellback Policy | 2011-06-25 10:13 | Bashiok
With the release of 4.2 all Valor Points will be down-converted to Justice Points, and all Conquest Points will be down-converted to Honor Points. To curb the ability to sell items back to the vendors after the conversion for the higher currency, we’re instituting a new sellback policy for items purchased directly before currency down-conversions.

Items purchased within the two hour window before the release of 4.2 will lose their ability to be sold back to the vendor when the realms are brought down for maintenance. No refunds will be granted for items purchased during this time, either by the in-game vendors, or our support departments.

As an example, I buy the [Vicious Gladiator's Battle Staff] at 2:30 a.m. The servers come down for the release of 4.2 half an hour later. Normally I would still have an hour and a half after the servers return to sell the item back to the vendor. With this policy change though, upon logging in my item can no longer be sold back to the vendor.

This policy is only in effect for maintenances that include currency down-conversions, such as the release of 4.2. To ensure you don’t purchase the wrong item with the inability to sell it back, we recommend buying well before the final two hours so there’s time to change any incorrect purchases.

For more information on the down-conversion please refer to: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/2880562
