How to Convert Emblems in Wrath of the Lich King Classic
In Wrath of the Lich King, you are able to convert higher tier Emblems down to lower Emblems, allowing you to purchase gear from previous phases. You must convert Emblems down to Emblem of Heroism to be able to purchase heirlooms and epic gems.
To convert your higher Emblems down, you must find Usuri Brightcoin in the Dalaran Sewers Underbelly. Here you can speak with her to convert your Emblems down a tier at a time.
To make converting Emblems easier, you can use a macro to convert multiple Emblems at the same time. This is especially useful after running multiple raids, days of heroics and so on. If you are only converting a few Emblems at a time it may be faster to just spam clicks. You can also use shift-click to purchase multiple Emblems at a time.
/script BuyMerchantItem(X, Y)
X is the Emblem that you want to convert to. 1=Emblem of Heroism, 2=Emblem of
Valor, 3=Emblem of Conquest, 4=Emblem of Triumph.
Y is the number of Emblems you want to buy.
Be warned when using this macro, you will not receive a confirmation window for your purchase. Make sure you correctly choose both the type of Emblem you want as well as the quantity as you can not undo this.
