I finished getting my sixth PvP Honor mount this evening. This probably ends PvP for me until Cataclysm, when (I assume) Blizzard will introduce new mount- or pet-related achievements that require it.
Some observations from an amateur honor farmer using Random Battlegrounds:
- I almost always asked "Plan?" at the start of the Battleground. If I got a serious answer, even if it was simple (e.g., "Zerg blue" in Strand of the Ancients) the Alliance usually won. If I got no answer, or a bunch of jokes, the Alliance usually lost.
- I only spent honor on mounts. However, I also had Emblems of Triumph that were now useless to me, since I'm already up to ICC10/Frost-Emblem gear, and I've bought all the Heirloom gear I needed. So I used the Emblems of Triumph to buy PvP gear.
I assume it was "last season's gear," but it got my resilience up to 337. I didn't accumulate stats, but it did seem to take them a little longer to kill me than in my resilience 0 PvE gear. I didn't bother to gem or enchant the PvP gear.
- Although it varied widely, it seemed to me that the average amount of honor for a lost game was about ~3K; the average amount of total honor for a game we won was about ~10K, if it was my first win of the night.
