Points mean prizes


Yet more announcements about Cataclysm, they do like to keep the hype up. Today’s titbits were about the replacement for the current badge rewards system.

PvE

  • Hero Points — Low-tier, easier-to-get PVE points. Maximum cap to how many you can own, but no cap to how quickly you can earn them. Earned from most dungeons. (most like the current Emblem of Triumph)
  • Valor Points — High-tier, harder-to-get PvE points. Maximum cap to how many you can own, as well as a cap to how many you can earn per week. Earned from Dungeon Finder daily Heroic and from raids. (most like the current Emblem of Frost)


PvP

  • Honor Points — Low-tier, easier-to-get PVP points. There will be a maximum cap to how many you can own, but no cap to how quickly you can earn them. Earned from most PvP activities.
  • Conquest Points — High-tier, harder-to-get PvP points. There will be a maximum cap to how many you can own, and a cap to how many you can earn per week. Earned from winning Rated Battlegrounds or Arenas. (currently called Arena Points)

So what can mean for us the players? The main difference is the simplifaction when buying items from different raid tiers, anything but the newest tier will always be bought with Hero Points so no more emblem juggling is required. What are the down sides? well i can’t really see any, its just removing the current needless complexity.

As there is also a cap on the number of Valor Points and Conquest points it also goes with the current Gated not Grindy mantra
