Honorless

“In order to make the transition from The Burning Crusade to Wrath of the Lich King flow as smoothly as possible, all accrued honor points will be reset at the launch of the expansion. … For those with unspent honor points prior to the release of the expansion, we will be offering a few upgrades and special rewards in next content patch solely for purchase via the honor system.�

Oh, and all the marks of honor are disappearing as well.

So.. all that grinding that happened during the Olympics week.. Poof, gone. *sigh*

So.. should I spend Lilac’s accrued honor on the PVP trinket? Or should she spend even more time PVPing and get a mount instead? Or should I just not care?

[Edited to add: ]
So they changed their mind. Honor isn’t going to reset. So.. um. Whee!

  • I’d keep an eye out to see just what sort of ‘special rewards’ Blizzard are planning to release in the next content patch. If they’re not particularly interesting then hardcore grinding probably isn’t such a good idea given that S2 items will be replaced at around lvl76, and so aiming for one of the PvP mounts may well be the best bet. It just depends on how close to your next item ‘upgrade’ you are.

    *ponders* I wonder if they’ll make the old PvP titles, say up to Knight-Lieutenant, available for ‘purchase’ for honour points */ponders*

    P.S. I like the very appropriate anti-spam word for this post ;)

    I’m also in a quandry having read that lil’ announcement. I cancelled my account a few months back because of (1) new baby; and (2) having done just about everything to do without a raid group, with the intention of resubscribing for WotLK. I had very painstakingly gathered up honor on a few alts so as to purchase gladiator weapons when/if needed, but never got around to it, figuring that new stuff would be released by the time I resubscribed, so I’d buy it then.

    Am I going to have to resubscribe solely to use my honor on a soon-to-be outdated item just because I don’t want it going to waste?

    I was bummed about this too, but then I remembered that you can buy mounts with just the badges. I always have more badges than honor. So my pvp hunter will be rocking a war elekk, and my more respectable mains will have the rams… all of which will help towards that mount-based achievement. OCD strikes again!
