Upcoming battleground and honor changes

Zarhym has announced today major upcoming battleground and honor changes. These changes will be present in the next minor content patch, which will be on the PTR soon. Some of the key points:
  • Marks of Honor are going away.
  • Holiday weekends will now be denoted as "Call to Arms" and award tiered system of honor for participation. The tier is based on you winning or losing the battleground, and if you've won or lost before.
  • Honor kills reward 100% more honor, Wintergrasp weekly quests give 50% less honor, and XP rewarded from honor kills are reduced by 50%.
  • Implementation of the Random Battleground Finder -- much like the current Random Dungeon Finder. There are further honor rewards, which are similar to the ones provided by the Call to Arms.
Obviously, there are a ton of implications in these changes to the basic way people participate in PvP. These changes also represent a good start to the massive overhaul we'll see in Cataclysm when rated battlegrounds are introduced.

We're very light today, as most Mondays are. Coming off the weekend when everyone is playing instead of reading we're pretty short on questions that aren't repeats! No need for elongated excuses, though. Let's dig into the few questions we do have.


As a healing Priest should I be worried about frost resist going into Naxx?

Crush your enemies with a repeatable battleground quest in 2.4

Have you ever wondered what to do with your spare battleground marks? You've got all the PvP mounts and are well stocked up on potions. It looks like in patch 2.4 you will be able tot urn them in for honor. Our friends at MMO Champion posted a screenshot of the new repeatable battleground quest. To complete the quest, just bring the quest giver a mark of honor from each of the four battlegrounds and they hand you honor. The first time you complete the quest you also get about twelve gold along with the honor. Each subsequent turn-in is worth 319 honor, no gold.
