Breakfast Topic: Where will you be honor grinding in Patch 3.2?


So patch 3.2 will be bringing some pretty significant changes to PvP Battlegrounds to say the least. Not only will Wintergrasp be morphing into a weird quasi-battleground with queue, but Warsong Gulch is getting a time limit, Eye of the Storm and Arathi's resource goal is being slashed, and we're getting a whole new battleground in the Isle of Conquest. In short, we're going to have some soul searching to do while we decide where to get our non-arena organized PvP fix on.

The debate over these changes rages strong, of course. Some people are pretty annoyed at the Wintergrasp change, while some rejoice that its lag-causing powers may finally be squashed. Some think Warsong Gulch is essentially ruined, while others (such as myself) are ecstatic that hour long stalemates where two people backed up by 3 healers each grab the flag, hide with it, and proceed to not die ever even with the damage debuffs are now completely eliminated.

In the meantime, there's the new battleground. Isle of Conquest was apparently a quick and dirty zergfest in its first incarnation, but after the recent changes, is doing a lot better and carries a lot of the promises Wintergrasp didn't quite live up to, from quasi-flying combat between bombing planes and catapults that launch players into keeps, and keeps that feel a lot more destructible than the still semi-permanent Wintergrasp Keep itself.

Anyway, with all these changes, how is it looking to your honor grinders? Will you be forsaking Wintergrasp now that it has the queue or will you stick it out? Will you be keeping to your old faithful battleground, or will you give Isle of Conquest a spin? How's honor grinding shaping up for you?

Patch 3.2 will bring about a new 5, 10, and 25 man instance to WoW, and usher in a new 40-man battleground called the Isle of Conquest. will have you covered every step of the way, from extensive PTR coverage through the official live release. Check out's Guide to Patch 3.2 for all the latest!
