    Can Paladins still solo Kazzak (after a very long time of saving up the reck-bomb)?

    Last night was a nightmare. Took me somewhere between 6-8 revives to get from Thorium Point to MC entrance. The path was camped by probably 40 or more horde patrolling and picking up every alliance.

    I'm normally all for PVP, but with the faction imbalance on my realm and the way the ranks are structured I'm not liking it at all. I'm much rather a MMR based system opposed to a farming system, but I do get that farming was the name of the game for classic. It just isn't for me.

    Here's to hoping the patrolling horde raids die down fairly soon...

    Does honor degrade? As in, if I take a week off for vacation will I drop ranks?

    Yes, but it doesn't decay very fast.

    You can find the calculations online somewhere..

    My sympathy to anyone who will attempt this, especially on servers where the top 10 honorgainers aren't organized at all.
    It will be brutal and even dedicated grinders will be dead and stranded on rank 12.

    If I recall right you need atleast top3 honor on your faction for a few weeks to actually get to 14.
    lol same, some friends were like you going to play vanilla and get it again and i was like hell no lol

    I love how the Lord Kazzak just shines a big light on the fact its been so many months and blizzard never patched and fixed the teleport to the blasted lands for the horde and there is just no easy way for the horde to get there anymore. I feel embarrassed for blizzard.

    Of course not. It was fixed days after the exploit was done, it's capped now

    60,000 that's it? I use to have to get way way way MORE than that just to get rank 11.

    yeah well if you enjoyed the old grind, this new one'll be hell with the sheer number of participants.

    it’s 60,000 rating points not honorable kills.

    Though for reference i got rank 11 on my warrior and only had 45,000 HKs or so

    Perhaps I'm misunderstanding how exactly it'll work. It looks like there is a set ceiling for ranks and thus we can expect multiple rank 14s. I know the PVP ranks use to have a cap to get ranks, but the thing was if people went over that cap it would screw with the rest of the ranks.

    Basically Blizzard would try and limit the number or rank 14 on each faction to just a one or two and then those below for the top of the week had to get more honor just to keep their standing.

    I guess this is their solution with cross-realms. I won't have to try and multiple week vacations to get it.

    Yeah, I get that. The old system use to have a sliding scale to limit the number of rank 14 to just one or two. If I'm understanding this is a hard cap so we might see 10+ rank 14s at the same time.

    The worst part about the internet is that it let the truly crazy, racist, and bigots find each other easily.

    Without battlegrounds its a shit fest on PvP servers for one faction. PvP servers aren't balanced, so this phase results in one faction corpse camping other faction. Players won't be able to play their level 60 characters and won't be able to level alts, so they'll either quit or reroll on PvE server, but most likely quit. This will lead to further imbalance and more players leaving.

    This phase will do more damage to Classic than anything else. Battlegrounds are needed ASAP.

    In a sense yes but since BLZ rushed DM I feel confident they will rush the first BGs too.
    I dont like that they rush but for BGs it is vital, it is silly to think this level of wpvp will keep up but nevertheless realms with borked faction balance will get hurt to a varying degree, at worst become even more fucked up by the smaller faction having even more rerolling(migrating) players.

    To those who complain about the ganking on a PvP server: you explicitly selected a server with the only difference that people can gank you at any time (almost) anywhere. So what did you expect what would happen?!

    Turn down particle effects if you join a TM v SS PVP raid.

    It helps!
