Problem is you'll have to fly all around Northrend to hand in those group quests, takes too long.
If there is a rested cap I think i'm just gonna lvl my pally first, gonna run in the new content just before the majority of the people so I won't have any problems with questitems/questmobs and Ill find only pro people in the dungeons (as the nabs are still 2 lvls too low then)

Thats exactly how I look at it too. After 4.0.1 I was at like 7.5k JP and I constantly buy gems to keep me just under the 4k cap. I think my guild is one of the few rare ones that is still working on progression. We just got 9/12 heroic which pushed us to I think #4 on the realm (small realm with no real progression... no heroic LK kill on Ravenfail). It will be real nice to be able to buy a couple of pieces of gear right off the bat.


I actually gamed the numbers of emblems a bit prior to the conversion so I ended up with 1k justice points (and a massive wodge of gold). Since our guild are still raiding regularly (albeit with a slightly lighter outlook; mainly doing it as a communal exercise) I've already made it back up to the cap again.

I'm slightly surprised I've not heard anything about overspill JP converting to gold (other than the one-offs for the capping process); it'd make a nice parallel with the current system for overspill XP, and would hopefully stave off any issues with the 80-85 process, where I'll be earning JP but won't have anything particularly interesting (or financially lucrative) to spend them on.

I'm pretty sure nothing in Cataclysm rewards JP prior to the level 85 heroics.

EDIT: Well, the first random non-heroic Dungeon Finder dungeon each day gives you a few, I think. But the dungeons themselves don't.

VP you mean...

I think the summary of this thread is "No, level to 80... only rested status you should have is sleeping 12 hours on Dec 6 so you can stay up forever." There's no advantage to coming in to Cata with 0 JP, but likely you'll be getting some JP along the way to 85, so being at 4k already may mean you lose out on a tiny amount... so get to 4k the last week before release and be happy about it.

and alot of them without the gear say they will give 41000 xp i got 8 quests completed just sitting in the log im not sure how much they will go down but it still will be worth more than a dialy.. just a thought

Not only, as already mentioned, these quest will waste you lots of time traveling, but lots of people have completed those quest and don't have a single quest in all Northrend available anymore, hence the talking about dailies, they're good for all and they're grouped in hubs.

I meant specifically your first daily non-heroic random dungeon. If it's like the way things worked pre-4.0.1, the first daily heroic would give you bonus VP (in addition to JP from the bosses), and the first daily non-heroic would just give you some bonus JP.

It's also entirely possible that they announced that even non-heroics would give VP, and I'm just wrong. There's been a lot of news lately. :lol:

I believe part of it is that it's not all about raw XP, but about xp/hour, in some respects. Dalies can be turned in almost all in one general location, whereas flying from Storm peaks to Icecrown to Azjol-Nerub etc takes time that you could be spending questing in new zones.

well, your previous post said "I'm pretty sure nothing in Cataclysm rewards JP prior to the level 85 heroics" which is different than "a few JP per day," but i do agree that JP should be at nearly 4k when you start since you won't get many if you're hurrying to 85.

The only thing I can think of else would be "Do the 85 blues require you to be 85 to purchase or can you buy one as soon as Cata goes live?"

All Cata vendor items require you to be the correct level to purchase them.

This already live on the game. I tried to buy some level 20 greens from one of the traveling road vendors in Red Ridge, and was not able to do so. Kept getting the error message that I had to be level 20 to purchase the items, and I was not.

Yeah, figured as much, but it would nice... I bought a relic for an shaman at 75 from getting daily triumph emblems but after patch couldn't get a wrathful weapon at 79 on a lock... was hoping it was just the pvp stuff :(
