"Players will now be awarded experience for completing objectives and actions that yield honor in Battlegrounds (honorable kills not included). Players who do not wish to gain experience through PvP can visit Behsten in Stormwind or Slahtz in Orgrimmar - both located near the Battlemasters in either city - and turn off all experience accumulation for the cost of 10 gold. Disabling experience gains will prevent a player from gaining experience through any means available in the game. Players with experience gains turned off who compete in Battlegrounds will face off only against other players with experience gains turned off. Behsten and Slahtz can reinstate experience gains for players, for a 10 gold fee of course. Any experience that would've been accumulated if experience gains were enabled cannot be recovered."Amazing! I can now turn alts experience gains off at level 60 or 70 as well for a more immersive end-game experience.

I missed that out :OBrilliant change. Should hopefully see BG's with more people in them at all levels now.

Best thing with this though is, we can turn it off at level 60. Meaning we can do any old school raid at the intended level that we wish to.

This is great! I love the changes to PVP. Makes it a little bit more exciting now.

These changes will only affect experience gain in battlegrounds (since they are adding experience gain to battlegrounds). No Vanilla or BC raiding without experience, sorry folks.

Actually, it DOES turn off PVE experience gains.http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/underdev/battleground-qna.html

Exactly! I mean, as long as you ignore the part about how the game is balanced for 80's, and the experience will be nothing like what it was when the level caps were 60 and 70.
Holy crap, you're right. My apologies. Wow...Molten Core here we come!
