I have some BG questions that I can really find no place with answers:1. When do you get honor from a BG kill and when do you not?2. If the answer is that you need to be within a certain distance range of the kill then it may explain why people are not defending nodes but run to take part in fights on the road. Then again, it could be because they just have no idea what they are doing.3. Is it different for healers than to DPS?4. Since mitigation healing (like a bubble) does not show on the BG's "bulletin board", do they count as healing anywhere else?I hope you have the answers or at least the place to look for them :)

That's actually a really good question. I know with healing you get honorable kills from anyone you are healing. The way honor gain works has changed though. You used to get something like 1 honor per kill, but now it's sliced up into all these smaller numbers. Then there are those weird times where you get an HK from doing nothing. I was on a low level alt the other day in the 10 to 14 bracket and had not even made it to mid field when the achievement for a HK popped up. I wasn't in range and never hit anything. I've also gotten achievements for "x number for HKs' while dead in a graveyard.

Comparing recount, which merges absorbs with healing, and the scoreboard, the scoreboard does not reflect mitigation. On my disc, I can have absorbs for sometimes millions of damage, but the scoreboard only shows throughput. Scoreboards are a joke anyways, I could go in naked to something like say IoC or SotA and do 7 million damage from sitting in demolishers, glaives, turrets, etc etc.
