Recommended Posts

Today marks the launch of Phase 2 in WoW Classic. Azuregos and Lord Kazzak have been enabled along with the PvP Honor System, allowing players to earn PvP ranks and acquire Honor Sets. Check out our PvP guides to get started!

With the arrival of the new PvP Honor System, we'd like to take the time to highlight our WoW Classic PvP guides:

Here's the official preview of both the world bosses and the PvP Honor system posted by Blizzard.

Get ready to put your skills to the test in WoW Classic. The PvP Honor system and world raid bosses Lord Kazzak and Azuregos are now available.

LORD KAZZAK

Gather a group of your best trackers and fighters to venture into the Blasted Lands. Lord Kazzak resides deep in the Tainted Scar and patrols the area, ready to smite all who dare cross his path. Prepare yourselves for a fast and furious battle against time and watch out for his Shadow Bolt Volley, which causes massive amounts of raid-wide damage.

Location: Tainted Scar—Blasted Lands
Suggested Level: 60
Players Suggested: 40
Associated Quests: Priest—While players have a small chance to get the The Eye of Shadow The Eye of Shadow as a random drop from elite demons in the world, Lord Kazzak is guaranteed to drop it. Following the quest, The Balance of Light and Shadow to its completion will reward the weapons Benediction Benediction or Anathema Anathema.

AZUREGOS

A member of the Blue Dragonflight, Azuregos makes his home in Azshara, guarding the magical artifacts left behind there. You’ll want to gather a group of comrades-at-arms to withstand his frosty reception and lay claim to the items he protects. To the victors go the spoils, and for some Hunters this means laying claim to the Ancient Sinew Wrapped Lamina Ancient Sinew Wrapped Lamina. This item has a low chance to drop on elite blue dragons, but is a guaranteed item drop from Azuregos.

Location: Azshara
Suggested Level: 60
Players Suggested: 40

PVP HONOR SYSTEM

The PvP Honor system has arrived in WoW Classic, opening the way for players to climb the ranks and earn PvP rewards.

CLIMBING THE LADDER

Facing enemies who are within 10 levels of your own character and defeating them will earn you Honorable Kills. These Honorable Kills will help you advance in the PvP system and unlock access to a variety of rewards, such as a PvP trinket, cloak, potions, and more.

Not all Honorable Kills are valued the same, however. Killing the same enemy multiple times will result in a decreasing amount of Honor gained until they aren’t worth anything more through the end of the day, when the system resets the diminishing returns.

Diminishing Returns from repeated kills on a single target are as follows:

  • 1st: 100% of Honor
  • 2nd: 75% of Honor
  • 3rd: 50% of Honor
  • 4th: 25% of Honor
  • 5th (and beyond): 0% Honor

Diminishing Returns also apply to killing faction leaders.

Honorable Kill values are also weighted by the defeated player’s own rank and level. You’ll earn more Contribution Points by defeating players who have more PvP experience under their belt and have reached a higher rank than by defeating players who are new to the battlefield. Each week your rank will be updated based on your activity relative to the other members of your faction, but climbing to the top won’t be easy—it will take regular participation to maintain or increase your rank.

You can also gain a large number of Honor by killing city faction leaders in Darnassus, Ironforge, Orgrimmar, Stormwind, Thunder Bluff, and the Undercity. Once Battlegrounds are available in WoW Classic, these will also provide Honor.

FALLING FROM GRACE

You will be given Dishonorable Kills for killing civilian NPCs which immediately impacts your Honor rating. Every dishonorable kill costs you some of the honor that you’ve earned in previous weeks, making it difficult to reach the higher ranks as long as you have any dishonorable kills counted on your record at all. These will appear in the Honor tab immediately.

TRACKING YOUR METEORIC RISE

You can check your status in the character information window (C) in the Honor tab. This shows your current rank as well as your honorable kills for the current day, the previous day, the week, the previous week, and over your character’s lifetime.

There are 14 ranks, and each rank provides access to new rewards. You’ll need to head over to the Officer’s Barracks in Stormwind or Orgrimmar to purchase your new items.

      After the release of Patch 1.13.3, players thought that Paladin's Reckoning was broken, but Blizzard clarified that losing Reckoning stacks when mounting up or initiating auto-attack against a target and canceling it before it goes off is perfectly normal.
      On top of that, they've discovered a bug where Paladins lose stacks of Reckoning if they're not facing their target or are out of range to attack the target when the Reckoning stacks are gained. This behavior is inconsistent with the 1.12 reference client and will be fixed next week during the scheduled realm restarts.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hi All,
      I wanted to take a moment to provide some clarification around what changed in 1.13.3 with Reckoning. There were several systemic issues with extra attack procs behaving incorrectly, which we fixed in the patch. A secondary effect of these fixes were two notable changes to Reckoning:
      Reckoning stacks are lost when you mount up. Reckoning stacks are lost when you initiate an auto-attack against a target and cancel it before it goes off. However, both of these behaviors were correct behaviors in the 1.12 reference client and as such are considered bug fixes. Both of these issues have been added to the “Not A Bug” list.
      Additionally, when investigating the reports around this, we did discover another bug where Paladins will lose stacks of Reckoning if they are not facing their target or are out of range to attack the target when the Reckoning stacks are gained. This is not consistent with Reference client behavior, we have a fix for this now, and it should be fully live the next time we have realm restarts.
      Lastly, while we appreciate the reports in this thread, there were many comments and replies that do not apply directly to this issue, or were unhelpful, and we’d like to remind everyone of the bug report forum guidelines 1. We will monitor and remove unhelpful or off-topic replies in threads like this. Keeping these threads on-topic and strictly comprising information that helps us find and reproduce bugs will help ensure that we can get these issues identified and fixed faster.
      Thank you!

      Marks of Honor Last Longer Than 24 Hrs in the Mailbox Missing Honor and Honorable Kills Bug
    • By Stan
      You can only carry 20 pieces of Alterac Valley Marks of Honor or Warsong Gulch Marks of Honor in WoW Classic at a time. The rest is sent to you via mail and the expiration time is currently set to 30 days as opposed to 24 hours.
      A new bug related to Marks of Honor has emerged in WoW Classic. Currently, the Marks have a 30-day expiration time instead of the intended 24 hours.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Bug: Marks of Honor in the Mailbox are lasting for 30 days instead of 24 hours.
      Steps to recreate:
      Collect 20 Warsong/Alterac Marks of honor Win or lose the BG of which you have 20 marks Check mailbox The marks will be deleted after 30 days 24 hours is the intended amount:
      44 By [bangy][on 2006/12/05](Patch 2.0.1)
      “A mark is obtained by playing a game of Warsong Gulch until the end - you do have not to have started when the battle started, but you must be at the end.
      If the battle is won, 3 marks are obtained, but only 1 is received if it is lost. Marks are automatically put into your inventory, but if there is no space, it is sent to your mailbox. However, note that it will disappear in 24 hours, so clear some space and get it back fast!”
      Patch 1.11.2:
      “once you have 20 of these(inventory and bank combined), you can’t carry any more. when you complete a wsg, if the token reward would give more then 20, they go to your mailbox instead. they are on a short timer (only 24 hours) in your mailbox before they disappear. you can’t get them out of your mailbox until you turn in some of the ones you already have.”
      From ThottbotBy tobiason [on 2006/12/16] (Patch 2.0.1)
      "Subject: “Marks Of Honor"I have 100 AB marks now. When I continue to participate in raids, afterwards (when we win), I receive no marks, but I get a mail from the battlemaster. It is a message that says that I cannot carry any more marks, and has 3 marks attached. I can save the mail, but for only 24 hours.”
      Having marks last 30 days can lead to people saving up marks for a month and grief other people ranking.
      We’re working on a hotfix for this issue. After the hotfix is applied and certain servers are restarted, we’re going to try to modify your mail so that anyone who has these will not be able to carry them over into the next week.
      And going forward, new Marks of Honor in the mail will have a 24-hour expiration.
      Thank you for the report!

      Missing Honor and Honorable Kills Bug
    • By Stan
      Blizzard is working on yet another bug related to missing Honor and Honorable Kills from Monday.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Anyone else missing the monday’s honorble kills and honor ?
      This week tab for me displays 1087 and 69k honor which is totally wrong because on monday i did all day 800 kills (around 28k honor) but it seems this numbers are missing. it only counted yesterday activity.
      That’s exactly right.
      We’ve found a process bug that caused a window of time where Honor appeared to go uncounted, and we’re repairing the missing honor. After the repair:
      If you got fewer rank points than you should have, we’ll increase your amount up to where you should be. If you got more than you should have, we’ll won’t change your amount. And of course, we’re working to fix the bug.

      Honor Calculation Bug Update: Dec 10
    • By Stan
      Blizzard today clarified that they have fixed a bug in WoW Classic related to the Runeblade of Baron Rivendare weapon which caused the Unholy Aura weapon buff to be utilized to snapshot the current +Healing gear. The Healing per 5 seconds would be  and upon switching to a different set, but maintain the Healing per 5 seconds.
      As a result, the Healing per 5 seconds was maintained upon switching to a different set. A demonstration of the bug can be seen in the video linked below.
      Based on the latest blue posts, we learned that this behavior was not intended and they have fixed it with the release of Patch 1.13.3.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hi All,
      I wanted to take a second and clear up any misconceptions about the nature of this bug fix. The Runeblade of Baron Rivendare neither scaled with +healing nor snapshotted any +healing effects in Original WoW or the 1.12 Reference client. This behavior was a bug that was introduced into WoW Classic. As such, the fix that went into 1.13.3 that removed the +healing benefit and snapshotting restored this item to it’s original 1.12 state.
      As this bug is now resolved we will be closing this thread now. As always, thank you for your reports and analysis!
