Should be able to spend honor on exp boosts.

One of the best ideas imo, but i'm afraid that blizzard would not give us a lot of exp for that, like 4000 honor = 10-20% of a lvl between 85-90...

Increasing incentive and rewards isn't going to stop botting. The problem is people just don't like leveling, and realistically, there isn't a good/fair (relative) solution to that. People bot because they don't want to grind through the shitty lower levels - increasing it even by 1000% wouldn't stop that, it would just take less time for the bots to hit 90.

They should, however, increase rewards from PvP for people that do enjoy leveling.

I don't mind leveling bots, but losing a battleground because 20% of your team consists of bots thats when it annoys me.
But the point of this post really isn't to discuss botting :D

If you ran a decent bot you would know the number is WAY higher than 20 percent my friend.

The amount of botting is insane, but it won't stop until Blizzard finds a way to detect all bots (which will never really happen because Warden isn't allowed to scan your active processes).

Leveling is such an outdated thing. The more new mmos come out, the less leveling is required, and that is a good thing. MMOs will die if they dont adapt. Why would you grind endless hours to get to the endgame content when you could play a game that is only endgame content like LoL. Some leveling is good, but once you level once or twice, it just suuuucks. I have leveled so many characters to max level since TBC that I couldn't count them all on my fingers and toes. I don't want to spend what free time I have killing stupid creatures and being some npcs bitch.

Aren't there all these "random" honor items you can buy? Like WSG stuff in Barrens/Ashenvale, AB stuff in Arathi Highlands and later on even AV stuff.
And from that point on at 60, 70 and 80 you can buy gear sets/weapons and such. I never have had problems spending honor from leveling in BGs(with the occasional dungeon here and there).

Edit: Noticed this post was created about a month ago. TT

They just need to double the xp earned and it would be fine to level in battlegrounds

leveling through battlegrounds is just so insanely RNG, either you gain nothing or earn a decent amount of xp

This too. It sucks playing a 25m AB game (where your team does nothing but zerg node to node / fight in the roads) only to get 5% of a level for losing.

I feel like if you are leveling with a friend this could be effective.  Two people (dps + heals) coordinated on skype would CRUSH low level Bgs.  You could easily win 80% of games.

If you're leveling with a friend, just do RAF and have the other person's 90 run you through a bunch of shit.

You average about 10% an hour from 85-90. Which is completely horrible, unless you bot.

Yeah, averaging 10% per hour is pretty atrocious. Just by questing (assuming you have shit gear when you hit 85, which most would unless you played the alt at 85) you can hit 90 in less than 12 hours played.

I wish there were more PvP dailies that you could do. They could grant honor / XP / XP buff (maybe?) and have you do certain objectives in the BG that align with your team's overall goal and BG objective (as to not prevent people from splitting off just to do the quest). They're adding some 5.2 PvP daily quests, but I don't think they're BG oriented.

create a personal Mob grind profile with vendor/repair and a loop to a closeby second grinding spot and set the bot to sell every first / second loop on random, also make sure your not geting stuck or moving into objects, make it look like "hit n run" be better if you disable loot, thats what i do, havnt been banned since pirox(pvptool) first day xD that was in s2, cus i figured how to make my own profiles

IMHO if you have to resort to botting in WoW, then you are playing the wrong game and ruining the experience for others at the same time.

So I'm not allowed to enjoy arena if I don't like spamming a button on NPC boars for 50 hours or watching vehicles knock down walls for 50 more?
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

It's no secret i'm no big fan of questing and leveling. So i thought i'd level my hunter through battlegrounds and just buy the gear while leveling and then i'd have a decent amount of gear by the time i reached level 90. But apparantly you can't buy the honor gear till you are level 90. So i my question is, why do they give you the opportunity to level through bg's, when you can't spend the honor? Seems kinda stupid to me.

THIS IS NOT A PVP GAME!!!
