The upgrade for triumph secondary costs 850 tokens. The solo zones only give 1 token (base) per run. The heroics 3 tokens (base).

Doing every single solo quest every day will yield 24 x 7 = 168 tokens for members
Doing every single heroic quest every day will yield 72 x 7 = 504 tokens for members

Especially at the beginning of the expac, people aren't going to be able to do every heroic zone, let alone all of them every day.

I wonder if the price is correct. It is much, much higher then similar upgrades compared to the previous expacs with a similar 'upgraded' version of the sig line triumph.

Although I think this price is high, keep in mind that on Live, members get double coins

The numbers I listed ARE the double coin amount... hence the 'for members' bit.

Aaaaand, the morning after the patch note saying the prices have been finalized.. the upgraded version coasts 850 tokens, 2.342million status and 118p...

They really are working to extend the grind.. the prices + the resolve increases (requiring 50% t1 heroic gear to be able to meet t2 heroic resolve requirements, etc)..
With quests one a day, that means either very slow progress... or lots of running zones for no currency and just the hope something will drop that your toon wins. This coupled with the high token costs (even recipes costs 10 per) looks to make this expac even grindier than last..

Oh, yes and there are 4 types of content..
Archivists' Tremissis (solo/heroic currency)
Archivists' Soldisu (raid currency)
Elemental Quintessence (public quest currency)
Elemetnal Runed Rai (no clue where this comes from)

So there are 3/4 currencies to grind depending if a person raids or not..

Solo quests offer base of 1 token, heroic base of 3.
Solo weekly offers 35 base
The heroic weekly quests offer 65 base... but since we're going need 50% t1 gear, only one is in reach for the first week or so
