WoW honor system clarified further

WoW characterThere are only two reasons why people keep on talking about the same things. First, that thing is totally awesome and way above average; and the matter being discussed is on the exact opposite side of the spectrum, meaning it is nothing but a complete piece of you-know-what. Unfortunately for World of Warcraft, it seems that its newly implemented honor system is part of the latter.

There have been numerous analyses about how honor is being computed. But no matter how we look at it, fans are just plainly disappointed. As if to add insult to injury, the community recently found a bug in the honor system regarding estimates. Given all these, Drysc from Blizzard maintained control and posted the following clarifications:

  • The recent honor nerf is not calculated at the end of the day. It’s already counted every time you drop someone. The honor you gain has already been dropped to its appropriate amount. There are no other specific reductions that your honor should suffer when it’s calculated late at night.
  • Bonus honor is now appearing in daily estimated totals.
  • Honor can be awarded in fractions. It is possible, due to bonus honor most likely, to earn .3 or .7 honor points. Those add up and are rounded at the end of the day.
  • Even though the rank titles still show up with every kill (e.c. “HK: Blood Guard” or “HK: Grand Marshal”), they have absolutely no bearing on earning honor.

That is everything Drysc has to say regarding the matter as of now. We hope all things become clear and well as soon as possible. We definitely would like to see expansion The Burning Crusade arrive in fashion, and not in chaos.
