185 honor per BG mark?? Wow, that's...paltry. I never thought the 90 marks needed for the PVP Mounts would look GOOD. Those 90 marks which right now will get a PVP mount will only be worth 16,650 honor after 3.3.3...a far cry from the 50,000 honor they will cost. :( Unless I've got some wrong info there somewhere, that's really disappointing.

Ditto - 185 is nearly worthless. Talk about from extreme to the other!

Here's some more math - if you have a full 100 marks with each of the six battlegrounds (600 total), those will be worth a grand total of... *drumroll* 111,000 honor. Or in other words, just over two PVP mounts (currently costing 180 marks) or like two pieces of endgame PVP gear. In exchange for HOURS of battlegrounds. Sigh.

Marks of Honor are currently worth a smidge over 248 honor each (providing you do For Great Honor and turn in the set of 6). 185 is hardly worthless. Personally I think it should be bumped up to 200-225, but I'll take the 185 over the real possibility of 0. As far as the mounts go, I do understand that if you farm the marks NOW and buy the mounts AFTER the patch, you're going to be hurting from the conversion. But I don't see anyone doing the math on how long it would take to get all the PvP mounts in the current system versus how long it would take to get all the PvP mounts just farming honor after the patch. My guess is that it will be faster in the new system. Might be something to check into if you don't have your PvP mounts yet.

One thing the new system has going for it is that if your faction doesn't have very good luck with certain BG maps you no longer have to grind out 30 of said BGs to get a mount... and if you are Alliance in the Cyclone Battlegroup you can count yourself doubly lucky as we don't win any of them except AV. It will probably be much faster to get into a BG you like or win frequently.
