Conquest Points are the upper-level currency introduced with World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Cataclysm and rewarded for participating in PvP encounters in the form of rated battlegrounds and ranked arena combat. The lower-level PvP currency, rewarded from non-rated battlegrounds and world PvP, is awarded in the form of Honor points.

Weekly cap

Everyone starts at 0 personal rating with a weekly cap of 1,350[1] (started as 1,343),[2] which is the most points you can accrue over the course of a week at 1500 Arena rating of less.[1]

Battleground ratings receive a bonus of 22.2% to the cap they generate, meaning the cap from Battleground rating now ranges between 1650 and 3300. Players may earn a total number of Conquest Points per week equal to the higher of these two caps, but once players have reached the cap for either Arenas or Battlegrounds, they can no longer earn Conquest Points from that source. Conquest Points from Battleground holidays only count toward the total Conquest Point cap.[1]

Unlike Honor and Justice Points, Conquest (and Valor) points do not have an overall cap.[2]

In Patch 4.2

As of Patch 4.2 and part of the introduction of Arena season 10, Conquest points were converted to Honor points. If this makes your honor point total go over the 4,000 cap, any excess point will be converted to money at a rate of 1 point to 35s.[3]

Temporary sellback policy

Point Conversion Sellback Policy | 2011-06-25 10:13 | Bashiok
With the release of 4.2 all Valor Points will be down-converted to Justice Points, and all Conquest Points will be down-converted to Honor Points. To curb the ability to sell items back to the vendors after the conversion for the higher currency, we’re instituting a new sellback policy for items purchased directly before currency down-conversions.

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.

As an example, I buy the [Vicious Gladiator's Battle Staff] at 2:30 a.m. The servers come down for the release of 4.2 half an hour later. Normally I would still have an hour and a half after the servers return to sell the item back to the vendor. With this policy change though, upon logging in my item can no longer be sold back to the vendor.

This policy is only in effect for maintenances that include currency down-conversions, such as the release of 4.2. To ensure you don’t purchase the wrong item with the inability to sell it back, we recommend buying well before the final two hours so there’s time to change any incorrect purchases.
