According to WoWWiki and several other websites, Justice Points are rewards for participating in normal and heroic dungeons that match the character level.

I've been doing random dungeons using dungeon finder since lv15. I am now lv65 and have been in 20+ instance runs, but didn't receive a single Justice Point, nor did I find any place on the game interface that mentions anything about them.

Did I miss something obvious?

  • I really wouldn't use WowWiki. It's not up-to-date and not officially supported by Blizzard. WowHead is the best place to be. I have it set as my homepage Jul 7, 2013 at 23:56
  • @Sandokan Yes I have. Character panel, Currency tab.

  • Wowpedia is the up-to-date wiki if you're going to use a wiki.

Due to its volatile nature, any answer posted about Justice Points is likely to change quickly (at the very least with every expansion, sometimes with a patch).

A good place to look is Wowhead. It's officially supported by Blizzard and is considered the WoW bible by many.

Here is a list of ways to obtain JP (and ways to consume them as well): Justice Points

There are just way too many to list and the formating will probably drive me mad. I will just list a few ways you will get them once you hit Pandaria.

From patch 5.0 or maybe an earlier patch, you have to be level 70+ to start earning Justice Points.

  • Random regular dungeons (not available to level 90s) - 60 points per dungeon run, no limit
  • Heroic dungeon bosses - 100 points per boss, no limit
  • Normal scenarios - 50 points contained in Greater Cache of Treasures per run, not limit

You can check the amount of points you have by opening up your character page, and clicking on the currency tab.

  • According to that page, random Burning Crusade dungeon should reward 5 JP, but I've done several and none received.

  • What does your currency page say? Jul 8, 2013 at 0:19
  • I think you have to be level 70 to start earning JP, at least in this expansion. Don't quote me on it though. I never worry about JP until I am over 85 unless you are thinking about twinking your char at 70 or 80. Jul 8, 2013 at 0:21
  • The JP entry doesn't even exist on the Currency page. However I've just found a WoWPedia page where it's stated that only WLK and Cata normal dungeons reward JP. So what you said, not until lv70. wowpedia.org/Justice_Points

    It does seem that you can no longer obtain JP from regular BC dungeons. WowHead is wrong on that account. Jul 8, 2013 at 1:19

The first time you start gaining Justice Point is at lvl80 You start gaining them from Random Wrath Dungeons your reward from completing the dungeons is the justice points and not the money. Also for every Boss you kill you get a x amount of justice points. From then on in Cata and MoP you get justice points from killing bosses which give you x amount of currency as well.

Edit: You also will gain Justice points at 70, only if you run TBC dungeons with a full party of level 70's no higher or lower. Has to be 70
