Pursuit of Justice - Heroic Dungeons

wkjezz's picture

With Cataclysm looming and Wrath of the Lich King coming to an end now is the time to be looking toward the future. In this guide, I will be recalling the dungeon guides of Wrath of the Lich King, and presenting you a quick overview of what rewards you can reap in your pursuit of justice points.

I included a level of difficulty on my list, by now many of us will undoubtedly consider all of these easy, though with lower geared alts or new players the difficulty may be different.

Objective Points
WotLK Level 68-80 daily normal mode dungeon run 12 Justice Points
WotLK Level 80 Heroic mode dungeon boss encounter 16 Justice Points
WotLK daily Heroic dungeon run 23 Justice Points
WotLK Level 80 raid boss 23 Justice Points
Cataclysm daily dungeon run 75 Justice Points
Cataclysm heroic mode dungeon boss 75 Justice Points

Above is a snapshot from my Justice Points conversion quick guide

"This Pear, So Delicious"

There we have it, a run down of what instances contains the most reward when trying to get that T10 gear, or simply trying to stockpile 4000 points in prep for Cataclysm.

Over the course of this week I intend to also make an overview of all the raid points in a similar fashion. In closing I would like to thank all the contributors to the raid guides embedded in this guide, your content is always appreciated on Wow-pro!

Hmmm, a couple of the pictures are really big compared to the others. Consider making them the same size. Just a nitpicky thing though!

As you might be able to tell:

My recent pictures have all been from MS Paint >< Dinosaur Lap top.

I will reformat and size the majority of images when I get home either on or after the weekend.
