This article is about general PvP 'honor system' info. For the Icon Legion 18x18 current PvP system, see Honor System 3.0.

The honor system is a way for players to gain honor rewards and PvP rewards by participating in PvP (Player vs. Player) settings (random, world, arena, battleground, or zone). Initially, only random, world and battlegrounds were available, but arena and zone areas were added to the game too.

Random PvP Edit

Main article: Random PvP

Honor Points are obtainable in Random PvP fights by killing enemy players.

World PvP Edit

Main article: World PvP

Honor Points are obtainable in World PvP fights by killing enemy players.

Arena Edit

Main article: Arena PvP system

In arena, by killing other players, you will not be awarded with Honor Points. Anyway you get them from the Arena Flush, that awards players who have done atleast 10 Arena Games with Honor Points. The amount of Honor Points are based on Team Rating.

Battlegrounds Edit

Main article: Battleground

In Battlegrounds you obtain Honor Points by killing enemy players and by playing the Battleground's objectives. Also, when the Battleground ends, if your faction has won, you will be awarded with extra Honor Points.

PvP zones Edit

Main article: PvP zone

There are basically two types of PvP zones: subzones and full zones. They are distinguished from other PvP areas in that special rules and effects apply while in these zones, but they are not instanced in any way, so players can enter and leave the zones freely. WoW Icon 16x16 World of Warcraft started with PvP tasks in Eastern Plaguelands and Silithus. Bc icon Burning Crusade added more PvP subzones (in Hellfire Peninsula, Nagrand, Terokkar Forest, and Zangarmarsh), and Wrath-Logo-Small Wrath of the Lich King added full PvP zones (Wintergrasp). Cataclysm-Logo-Small Cataclysm added Tol Barad and Tol Barad Peninsula as PvP zones. Mists-Logo-Small Mists of Pandaria did not add any PvP zones or subzones. Warlords-Logo-Small Warlords of Draenor added Ashran island as a combination faction quest hub and PvP zone. Legion-Logo-Small Legion added a PvP subzone for most major zones (except Broken Shore?) plus the Dalaran Sewers.
