Classic PvP Spotlight: Warsong Gulch, World PvP, Honor System
With Blizzard opening up the Honor System and Warsong Gulch for testing this weekend on the WoW Classic beta, we wanted to highlight some overviews on these Classic PvP topics.

As you participate in PvP content, be it outdoor PvP or battlegrounds, you will start earning Honorable Kills (which we will be calling HKs). A HK is generally awarded when you, or someone in your group, kills a player of the opposite faction. Players need to be within 10 levels of you (ie. not having their level displayed as gray) to count for a HK.
There are a total of 14 ranks for both factions. Each rank requires a minimum amount of Rating Points to be calculated every week, then calculated in comparison to other players on your server.
Each rank grants access to different rewards, from PvP consumables to Epic Mounts that do not require Epic Riding Skill and Epic pieces of gear at the highest ranks. Each rank is also applied to your character as a Title.

Honor System Armor Sets
Through the PvP system, each class has access to 2 different sets, with pieces that can be purchased from PvP vendors once you reach a certain PvP rank.
Each set contains a total of 6 pieces, with set bonuses being awarded at 2-pieces, 4-pieces and 6-pieces. 2-piece and 6-piece bonuses are generic stat increases such as Stamina, Attack Power or Spell Power, while the 4-piece bonuses are improvements to some of your class spells.
As these sets are built around PvP combat, their stats are more generic than other dedicated sets such as the raiding tiers, but their generic stats makes these sets a great option for more hybrid specializations that don't have access to dedicated sets in raiding, such as DPS specializations for classes like Paladins and Druids.

World PvP will be available starting at launch, with the PvP Honor System coming in Phase 2. As there will be no Battlegrounds until Phase 3 all of your Honorable Kills (or HKs for short) will be farmed out in the world.
If you're looking to gain ranks or even just participate in some good old fashioned world battles, you will find information in this guide on where this may be possible, as well as details on the Arena Grand Master trinket.

Warsong Gulch is available for level 10 and higher players to queue up. It is a 10v10 capture the flag type game mode with one spawn point for each team and certain buffs to help for certain situations. This guide will go over the differences between Classic and BFA Warsong Gulch, general composition tips, locations and abbreviations, buffs, and more!
