  • Conquest Points
  • Earned as a reward for Arena or Rated Battlegrounds and used to purchase the most powerful PvP armor and weapons.

Conquest Points (CP) were the upper-level currency rewarded for participating in PvP encounters in the form of rated battlegrounds, ranked arena combat, Random Battlegrounds and Ashran. The lower-level PvP currency, gained from non-rated battlegrounds and general world PvP, was awarded in the form of [Honor Points]. These points did not carry from one PvP season to the next PvP season. Any remaining CP after season end was converted to its equivalent in honor points until the cap was reached, after which it was converted into money if necessary.

Cap

Your Conquest point cap was calculated each week depending on your best personal arena and rated battleground rating.

Your Conquest cap was displayed in the Rated pane of the PvP interface. It was also calculated through the official World of Warcraft Armory. To access it, you simply selected the 'PvP' option from the menu on the left hand side of your character's Armory profile. The calculator was found in the top right corner of the PvP page.

In addition to the basic cap, each player also had an Ashran bonus, allowing them to earn extra Conquest Points in addition to their normal cap through participating in the zone. Players were able to earn their entire Conquest cap from Ashran.

Source

Conquest points were earned from the following sources:

Note that it was not possible to earn conquest points above your weekly cap.

Trivia
