- Binds when picked up
Justice Points are the new currency to buy items as a reward for participating in Wrath of the Lich King normal and heroic dungeons and raids (up to level 80), as well as Cataclysm dungeons on normal and heroic mode (after the first random). Justice Points replaced and . Cataclysm based raid content will reward Valor points instead.
|Completing chess encounter in Karazhan (at any level)||10 Justice Points|
|Wrath of the Lich King (68-80) Normal dungeon daily||12 Justice Points|
|Wrath of the Lich King (80) Heroic boss||16 Justice Points|
|Wrath of the Lich King (80) Heroic dungeon||23 Justice Points|
|Wrath of the Lich King (80) Raid boss||23 Justice Points|
|Wrath of the Lich King (80) Weekly raid||138 Justice Points|
|Cataclysm (80-85) Normal dungeon daily||140 Justice Points|
|Cataclysm (84-85) Normal boss in Grim Batol, Lost City of Tol'vir or Halls of Origination||30 Justice Points|
|Cataclysm (85) Heroic boss||70 Justice Points (up to 7 times per week)|
Outgrowing content by out-leveling it will result in the listed objectives no longer rewarding Justice Points. Thus, for Wrath of the Lich King content, no Justice Points will be rewarded for players levels 81 and above. The same rule applies for Burning Crusade content, which will also reward Justice Points.

Time estimates assume a good but not exceptional group. Wipes will vastly increase the total, of course. Justice Points counts assume all bosses being downed during the run. Skip some, get less.
Justice Points can be spent at a faction-specific vendor (also known as the Justice Quartermaster) or at a vendor in Dalaran for Item Level 346 rare gear, which will cost 950-2200 JP depending on the slot of the item.
There are ten "Legacy Justice Quartermaster" vendors in Dalaran and they have replaced the old Emblem vendors from Wrath of the Lich King in the Silver Enclave (Alliance) and the Sunreaver's Sanctuary (Horde). The Alliance vendor, Magatha Silverton, is located in Stormwind in the Command Center, in the southernmost part of Old Town. She is standing beside Faldren Tillsdale, the Valorous Quartermaster.
Conversion of Emblems to Justice Points
When players first log in after Patch 4.0.1, the number of Justice Points they have will be calculated as follows:
- JP = 11.58 * (EoT + EoF)
- JP = the number of Justice Points;
- EoT = the number of Emblems of Triumph;
- EoF = the number of Emblems of Frost.
Players cannot stockpile more than 4,000 Justice Points at any time by normal means of running instances.
However, if the one-time emblem-to-point conversion grants the player more than 4,000 Justice Points, they will be unable to accumulate any additional Justice Points until they have spent the excess. Come Patch 4.0.3, any Justice Points above 4,000 will be immediately converted to gold at a ratio of 47 50 per Justice Point.
Other emblems, badges and tokens
, , and will be immediately converted to gold (and not Justice Points) at a ratio of 5 50 per emblem in Patch 4.0.1. will also be immediately converted to gold at a rate of 1 83 30 per badge.
PvP-based currency will be converted to Honor points much the same way.
Comparison of purchasing power
With the introduction of Justice Points (Patch 4.0.1), that replaced and , players will be able to use the same currency to purchase both Tier 9 and Tier 10, potentially skipping the earlier in favour of the latter. Obtaining Tier 10 is now in comparison faster and easier.
The conversion did affect the prices of Heirlooms as well, from using to using the same currency. The prices for Heirlooms seems to be equated for the Justice Point income at level 85, which at level 80 means relatively higher costs. Example:
- Patch 4.2.0 (2011-06-28): Valor points converted to Justice points. See Valor point for conversion info.
- Patch 4.0.6 (8-Feb-2011): The daily Random Dungeon reward on normal difficulty has been increased to 140 Justice Points, up from 70.
- Patch 4.0.3 (15-Nov-2010): Justice Points over the 4,000 hard cap will be immediately converted at a ratio of 47 50 per Justice Point.
- / Patch 4.0.1 (12-Oct-2010):
- All and have been converted to new Justice Points.
- Any dungeon or raid which awarded these emblems will reward Justice Points instead. Anything below Emblems of Triumph, including badges from The Burning Crusade dungeon and raid content, have been converted into gold and sent to players via the in-game mail system.
- Any bosses players defeat that are level-appropriate to them award Justice Points.
- All items that previously cost emblems or badges of any type now cost Justice Points.
