If you are going to become a serious PvP player, there are several things that you can do to earn the maximum amount of Honor and Conquest points. There is one thing that you do need to remember, Blizzard has placed a cap on both Honor Point and Conquest Points that you can have at any one time. Still this does not mean that you should not work to reach your cap as quickly as possible if you want to get the best gear.
With so many changes being made to the currency system and the addition of the random battleground feature, you should have no problem making it to your cap. Some features such as the weekend Double Honor for a particular Battleground are still in effect. If you are new to PvP you will find that on some weekends one of the Battlegrounds is selected to reward players with bonus Honor. This usually starts on Friday and ends on Monday, essentially giving the player four days to pick up on the bonuses.
These “Call to Arms” weekends offer you one of the fastest ways to earn Honor Points. Since you are playing in a player versus player environment, you might think that all you should have to do is camp out and wait for your enemies to come by so that you can get the drop on them and score easy kills. Blizzard heartily discourages this and has taken steps to reduce its effectiveness. First after a certain number of deaths a player is no longer worth any Honor Points and secondly the number of hit points each class has in their health pool has been raised significantly.
Farming Honor in this manner is not only poor sportsmanship; it is not going to get the job done very quickly. You will earn far more Honor by completing the objectives in each Battleground and winning them or for that matter losing. As explained earlier you can also use the Random Battleground feature to earn more Honor with bonuses for your first BG and any subsequent Random Battlegrounds that you do on the same day.
