Discouraging Valor, Encouraging PVP

4.3 is coming, and so are the currency changes. The biggest change that I see coming down the pipe is the PVP change to conquest points.
In patch 4.3 we’re changing the daily battleground (BG) to reward 100 conquest for a win (up from 25). In addition, every non-rated BG that you win will also give you 50 conquest. There is no limit to how many BGs you can run this way, up to the normal conquest cap [1350].
This means, gearing up a fresh 85, is going to favor PVP. 25 battlegrounds WINS later, and you could be sporting your first piece of iLevel 403 gear. ("Cataclysmic Gladiator" lol.. ) This sounds a lot easier than running   tons of pugs to get valor points, or even raiding end-game content in your greens..
