Honor compensation date announced for recent PVP gear debacle


Blizzard’s Bashiok has posted a time frame for the [hide]previously announced[/hide] 4,000-honor point compensation package for players who spent honor on old gear during the week between the PVP Season 9 and Season 10. Any player who spent honor on ilevel 365 gear during the transition week will be awarded a free 4,000 honor points, which can go over the point cap and can be spent on the new, higher tier of Vicious PVP gear. This free honor will be awarded to players during maintenance on July 19 (this coming Tuesday).

I think this is a pretty good compensation package for players who were not informed of the change in how PVP gear would be handled this season. The biggest issue from the debacle was that players spent a huge amount of time and effort grinding out honor for ilevel 365 gear during the off-week, then spent it, only to see the gear became useless just days later. Now that work has essentially been restored in the form of new, shiny, over-the-cap honor points. You will not be able to earn more honor points until you dip below the cap again, however.[hide]Continue reading Honor compensation date announced for recent PVP gear debacle[/hide]Filed under: [hide]PvP[/hide], [hide]Cataclysm[/hide][hide]Honor compensation date announced for recent PVP gear debacle[/hide] originally appeared on [hide]WoW Insider[/hide] on Thu, 14 Jul 2011 19:00:00 EST.
