Honor points are one of the two new PvP currencies introduced in Patch 4.0.1. They replace the identically-named, pre-Patch 4.0.1 Honor points, Arena points, and various other forms of currencies and tokens in use before that point. A higher level currency was also added called Conquest points to replace some higher level PvP tokens. However, Honor Points were removed with the release of Patch 7.0.3.[1]

An honorable kill is the act of killing an opponent that yields ‌ Honor point honor points.


Honor Points can be exchanged for rewards from the Champions' Hall in Stormwind and from the Hall of Legends in Orgrimmar. Supply officers from each battleground will also exchange them for various items.

The Eye of the Storm battleground is technically in Netherstorm of Outland.

Conversion of previous currencies

Much like with old PvE currencies (badges of justice and emblems), old PvP currencies (including the pre-4.0.1 Honor points), will be immediately converted to the new honor points at the following ratios:

Old currency 1x Old currency in Honor points 1x Honor point in old currency
Old Honor point (pre-4.0.1) 0.024 41.667
Pre-4.0 Arena point 0.85 1.176
Battleground Mark of Honor 2.976 0.336
[Wintergrasp Mark of Honor] 19.08 0.052
[Stone Keeper's Shard] 1.6 0.625
[Venture Coin] 3 0.333
[Spirit Shard] 1 1

The normal cap of honor points will be 4,000 (paralleling Justice points). If players are granted more than 4,000 honor points as a result of this one-time conversion, they will be unable to earn any more until the excess has been spent.

Patch changes

  • World of Warcraft: Legion Patch 7.0.3 (19-Jul-2016): Removed.
  • World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Patch 4.0.3 (15-Nov-2010): Hard cap of 4,000 Honor points enforced. Any honor points in excess of 4,000 will immediately be converted to gold at a rate of 35 Silver per honor point.
  • World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King/ World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (12-Oct-2010): Honor has been adjusted completely. Any activity which yields Honor will now award much less. The Honor cost of items has been reduced to compensate.
