Breaking the Justice Points Cap

VOTES

0

Patch 4.2 patch notes say

All existing Valor Points in the Currency tab have been converted to Justice Points. Any points above the Justice Point cap will be converted into gold at a rate of 47 silver per point and mailed to characters.

Is there any way I can flex that limit? I currently have just below max JP and want to maximise my buying power after the patch hits? Can I buy gear just prior to the patch then return it for a refund post-patch?

I suppose if you were to purchase some items and keep the character logged out to assure the two hours doesn't tick away it could be possible to do that. This sounds like something Blizzard has/will break as it goes against their goal to keep players from stockpiling currency.

I'm assuming they won't care too much about it, since it is only the lower tier. The alternative way to max buying power is to spend all the top tier now so none is lost during the conversion process. – Dobablo (Jun 10 2011 1:11 AM)

Curses. Foiled again. (http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2721583521) - 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. – Dobablo (Jun 27 2011 1:09 AM)

Nabbed from a wowhead comment...

As of 4.1 you can purchase 250 Justice Points for 375 Honor Points from Edlan Halsing (Alliance) and Rogoc (Horde). You can purchase 250 Honor Points for 375 Justice Points from Talric Forthright (Alliance) and Togar (Horde).

So, not great, but effectively pushes the JP cap up to 6500 (4000 JP + 3750HP). I wouldn't call it efficient either but whenever I get near the JP cap I'll be switching some to HP. A 4/9 conversion ratio might not be great, but it is better than the 0/9 you get from points earnt when capped.

That assumes that there are some new items worth purchasing with your points at a later date.

I believe that your math is a little off, but it is pretty close. Assuming you go the route of capping both JP and HP before the patch, you would end up with the following: 4000 + ((250 / 375) * 4000) = 4000 + 2/3 * 4000 = 4000 + 2667 = 6667 JP. Given, if you convert JP > HP > JP you do lose the additional JP, but you can always make a little up by running a few battlegrounds, especially if it is a Call to Arms weekend. – Spazmoosifer (Jun 10 2011 11:24 PM)
