Cheers for the KW Rare farming technique that will help my cause
To elaborate on the KW tip, don't even worry about bothering your friends. Install OQueue and join one of the fleeting world boss groups as they're starting to form. Down the KW rares and drop group. No one will think twice about it. In fact, it's quick enough and there are so many groups that you can just pick out your the easiest NPC and cycle on that one. (I used to look for low pop servers forming world boss groups and use the time to farm eggs for Cloud Serpent rep-- took about an hour each to get exalted for all three characters).
Anyways, back on topic, I see a lot of people posting about getting Conquest from BGs, and that being a positive. But I don't really understand, you can win 10 arena games and cap your 1800 once you're in like half PvP gear, which you can easily do in 3 days or so whether you do BGs or heroics, and then you can do arenas for 10 wins easy. Hell, honestly, you can win games in crafted Malevolent, and save yourself the trouble. I feel like when you're trying to gear up at first Conquest doesn't matter, cause no matter what you do you can get fully geared in a week anyway and get your Conquest from arenas that week.
I feel like grinding your honor set should be about speed. Whether that's heroics, KW rares, or actual BGs, whatever the fastest method is is the one that should be used.
If you just hit 90, then doing battlegrounds to get to know your class seems like a better idea than doing heroics, even if it's slower.
Spamming Heroics is quite decent. However if you have a 2nd account or know someone one willing to help you out for a few hours. Keep creating lvl 1 toons and get invited to a low pop server and smash the karasang winds adds over and over and you can grind out a full set in about 4-5 hours.
the only exception is being annoying as hell, like being a frost mage and doing a lot of cc, or being ww monk and using RJW at the flags so nobody from the other team can cap xD
If you're farming the rares in KW then be sure to pick up the Honor Banner from the Guild Perk Merchant. It gives you like a 10% bonus to honor if you kill something yielding honor within a certain proximity of it. Works on the rares, IIRC works when you use the HP item they drop too.
However since this thread, I have finally got my weapon, I farm dungeons when im super annoyed with bgs, but atm the call to arms is the power ball and were winning a decent amount. Iv got quite bit honor this week.
Toll Barad win was 500 honor, quest was 300, Wintergrasp was 480 honor 80 honor quest 4 quest, then I did dungeons mindlessly, now doing powerball. With a weapon I farmed 2v2 for shoulders, so going better then the start.

Empty Drinking Horn is just a myth, I no longer believe in its existence.
kill krasarang rares, do Wintergrasp, Tol Barad.
Ask Blizzard for magic button. You just press it and you'll receive full Tyranical set. Same with PvE, "click" and you've got iLvL 340 for a good start. It can be called "avoid morons in LFR and BG, because you're a true hero who deserve instant bonus" button.
