Warlords of Draenor will herald the end of Justice and Valour point currency

Warlords of Draenor

The next expansion for World of Warcraft is bringing with it slew of improvements and fixes across all aspects of the game. One of Warlord of Draenor’s features is the streamlining of end-game progression - most notably raids.

In a blue post today regarding currencies, Blizzard have announce their plan to retire the Justice and Valour tokens in favour of a more universal one. Gold.

Blizzard revealed their plan in a blue post on the official forums. 

“What will be going away is Justice and Valor.” said game designer Watcher. “Over time, they've moved away from their original purpose, and given how widely available they'd become (awarded from quests, scenarios, dungeons, raids, etc.), we'd rather return to the original universal currency: gold.

“The final values aren't hooked up yet, but the old Valor rewards for completing your daily random dungeon or an LFR wing will be replaced with a hefty sum of gold, which should make something like the gold turn-in for a bonus roll seem far more attainable even for players who currently don't have much gold.”

Justice and Valour tokens are currently used to buy the majority of your starting raiding gear and further augment your loot drops. Using gold as a replacement currency is interesting, but the effects of such a system remains to be seen.

One thing is for certain: you’re going to want to stock up on more gold before Warlords of Draenor hits on November 13th this year.

I can't imagine it will be anywhere near as straight forward as this. It will surely be a very limited selection of gold-purchasable BoP gear, and it will be behind some reputation wall.

It's an extreme turnabout however, considering they never made even the lesser Justice Points transferable between (alt) characters. Either way, I imagine gold sellers are rejoicing at the news XD

Is this a joke? Are Blizzard that stupid? Do They not learn from their epic mistakes?

This will be vanilla-D3 all over again. Play AH/Bot/Buy Gold > BiS gear in 1 day!

Well, this will wreck the games economy something fierce. But, seeing as it's a decade old... doubt they care at this point.
