I've been grinding honor / conquest in bgs for the past 3 days and I'm completely lost on how honor is handed out when the bg is over. Generally I get 1/2 to 1/3rd the the amount of honor the top guy gets, which basically puts me at the bottom of the list or a few steps up. It doesnt matter if im near top in damage, honor kills, objectives, etc...

I was just in IoC and got 87 honor at the end of the bg. There was some dude who had 0 healing, 0 dmg, half as many hks as me, and obviously did no objectives, but still got 380. Sooooo why is this???? Obviously I'm not doing something right...

It's frustrating grinding honor when this happens every game. All I can do atm is deal with it because I'm trying to gear up for arenas / rbgs.

1 hk = ~0,97 honour
objectives generally award around 30 to 40 honour
first win of the day awards 360(?) bonus honour

that's all really.

if you want good honor and playing AB (camp BS) it gives you 50% bonus honor and you almost get honor from every base on the map.
while you are holding BS base ofc!

Right. I didn't consider that. I'm just frustrated.

I'm sure it will be better once I get full honor / conquest gear due to sockets and enchants. I'm still in mostly contender's with all the honor accessories atm.

I'll clear some things up in case anyone else has the same questions / frustrations that i had.

1. I was direct queuing for the bg instead of using the random bg or daily bg, so i wasn't getting bonus honor.

2. Honor kills are on diminishing returns, meaning each time you kill someone in 24 hours (i think) you get less honor each kill. So if you're like me and do bgs 24/7 you'll see less honor over time as you'll be killing alot of the same people.3

3. The people that have way higher honor than you when you "win" have just completed their first random / daily bg for day netting in even more bonus honor.

With that said I've been doing much better now that I'm geared up a little. in full 1/1 upgraded honor gear with the mal glad helm. I'll be getting the weapon / offhand next week, and I'll even have enough points to 2/2 upgrade the weapon. I won't have enough gear to be competitive all this season, but I think I'm on the right track.

I found myself a decent 2's team with a druid and even though we lost most of our fights at first we ended up winning our last 5 in a row going from 3W-11L to 8W-11L and only quit because we were both points capped and had other things to do. Pretty good for me having a 4 year break, not having half my stuff hot-keyed yet. I just need to learn more about all the other classes since so much has changed since I last played in BC.

I'm on a RBG team too but there's only a few of us that are core members atm and the rest are all recruited for the day through trade chat. Gotta love being on a crappy RpPvP server lol.

...but yeah im geeked for things to come..
