I havent been in Wrath PvP yet, but i thought i heard somewhere you need some arena points for the new gear. Please correct me if i am wrong though

There are 3 tiers, a blue set, and two epic sets. The lower end epic set requires only honor, but a lot of it. The higher end requires arena rating and arena points+ honor points.

Its worth mention the mid tier epic set pieces require arena rating, if you want to purchase it with honour points.

Just to flesh out what Kyle was saying, there are indeed 3 tiers of purchased PvP gear, as well as a tier of crafted gear, which sits below the purchased gearFor the 5 core slots (head, shoulders, chest, legs, hands):1) Crafted gear (such as Savage Saronite for plate-wearers). It's all BoE so you can either gather mats and take them to a friendly crafter or buy the pieces directly from the Auction House.2) Savage Gladiator gear - purchasable for; Emblems of Heroism; just honor points; or for a mixture of honor points and arena points (with lower honor point cost if you're adding in the arena points).3) Hateful Gladiator gear - purchasable for; Emblems of Valor; and the combination of honor and area points. Not available for just arena points or just honor points. Has low arena point requirements.4) Deadly Gladiator gear - purchasable with just arena points, and has higher arena rating requirements.For the offset pieces (rings, neck, bracers, belt, cloak, trinket):1) Crafted gear - no crafted cloak but the other pieces are all available in the same way as other crafted gear and is all BoE2) Hateful Gladiator gear - purchasable only with honor points. Has no area rating requirements3) Deadly Gladiator gear - purchasable only with honor points. Has low arena rating requirementsFor weapons, shields, librams etc.:1) Deadly Gladiator weapons - purchasable only with honor points. Have 2030 arena rating requirements.

Back on the original article...."Honor points are a type of currency used to purchase rewards in the game. Just like Emblems or Badges from dungeons, the amount of Honor you have can be tracked through the Currency tab in your Character panel."That's great! Now, what the heck are Emblems and Badges? I've run a lot of instances and never encountered either.
