I want my HK’s – and the Honor – I want my PVP FU BACK

There is not alot of Honor in defending the base.  Your standing there in your 497 Resilence Set, that you worked your butt off for, and a strumpet that jumps off the rock and dies, is out there getting all your Hk’s –  But someone has to do it, and it can mean the difference between a loss and a win. 

“Call Incomming”

It’s become more of an issue now, because that strumpet is now blaring out to everyone via battleground chat ” Lol… I’m getting as much honor as they are  and we  lost..   Nooobs… ”

I only noticed the other day, your bonus honor now for your HK’s is on the Battleground board.  You can now see who is doing the most damage, healing, and how much more honor then you he/she is getting because you did the right things and stayed guarding mage tower, so for the people who are doing the right things, regardless of the win or loss,  babysitting a flag/base will not get the same honor as the people doing base zergs. Its always been the case, but its never been made public before – and it pee’s me off.

So do I guard the base or not? – I’m leaning now towards NOT.  I’m going to ignore the mage that left DR undefended and died as soon as he even got over the bridge, rezzed ran past an empty DR and did it all over again. I’m going to pretend I didn’t see that DR now has no blue dots on it.

The better team player would have gaurded DR.  I’d like to think that I am that better team player because I do guard nodes, but untll WOTLK I’m a little bit over PVPing now as a Shadow Priest.  My Holy priest is one bar off 66 ( which I will hit once I get my 1667 words done when I get home from work) 

 I have done a couple of Bg’s with her…  apprehensively because she was a lobie, but she got top allie healer in both of those BG’s. I am really looking forward to healing with her in BGs, and I’m hoping to have enough time before the expansion to get her to 70 and get her some Pvp gear  so she is more leveling ready for Wrath.

No – I haven’t been converted to the lightside – but I have given up trying to compete for damage in BG’s – Lets compete for heals.

Another thing.  Night Elves cannot sit and drink  in shadow Meld now. Darn!


I’m noticing how quick people die now in BG’s.  Resilience means squat.  peoples new abilities are cutting through armor like its paper,  and the clothies are dieing quicker then ever.  Its like a damage crecendo, dot dot smack smack BOOM!   I don’t have time to use my Audacity trinket/healthstone/Dispersion/ because a Boomkin of a Pally has swiped me for 4k damage, and they do so on regular occurance.

/Cheers at Pally nerf to be.

    I also found this “effect”. You make the most to win the match and you get the least from the honor. However there is a solution for it, and I’ve always wanted to write about in my blog but always forgot. Thanks for reminding me.

    Reroll Horde.
    They (nearly) always guard their bases and they nearly always win BGs (except for AV).

    Sometimes I really regret rolling an Alliance toon 3 years ago…

    It’s never too late to reroll now!

    I also tend to guard nodes as well but …. usually with somebody who is afk! So I see the balance. But as you mentioned, if I see a healer following I usually go on the offensive.

    Arh.. whats with all these people wanting me to re-roll – Alliance to the bone!

    I’m still going to try and do the right thing.. I would feel bad if I didn’t. but If the difference in honor starts creeping into the hundreds , then i start ‘Not noticing.. ‘
