​WoW Classic PVP System Overview

Mar-05-2021 PST

The PVP system in the world of warcraft classic allows a player to gain and climb up in ranks, which also unlocks various titles and gears depending on the rank. These ranks are calculated based on the contribution made weekly in the PVP system. This ranking system became live on November 14th, 2019 and the battlegrounds War song Gulch and Alterac Valley became live on December 10th, 2018.

Honour System

It is a system used to compare the efforts of a player with the efforts of another on the server. Participating in this system will provide you with Honourable kills, also known as HKs. These HKs are normally awarded when a player of a fraction kills a player of the opposite and the requirement is that the player needs to be 11 levels of you so that they’re not displayed as grey for it count as an HK. Example, A player of level 60, any player of level 49 or above will be counted as an HK.

These HKs does not have the same value, and it all depends on the Honour Contribution Points, also known as CPs. A CP can be measured by the experience that a player has in PVP, so killing a player with high amounts of CPs will award you with greater CP upon death, just like a fresh level 60 player who has not made his/her way into PVP yet. Weekly HKs, as well as the previous weeks HKs can be viewed through the Honour tab that is in the respected player's character sheet. A player can also earn these CPs by completing various objectives in the battlegrounds, like capturing of flags in War song Gulch, killing a lieutenant in Alterac Valley or by capturing a base in Arathi Basin. There is a reset weekly and the CPs that is gathered can be used to calculate the players rating. Weekly rating is calculated with the help of an average from the players previous weeks ratings and the current is compared to the other players present on the server.

There are a total of 14 ranks per person, which is awarded to a player in the form of a character title, which also provides benefits These rankings and titles are updated every week, and only during the reset. The system doesn’t work as simple as a levelling system but works on behalf of the efforts that are put into the PVP side. Playing a certain standoff every week will not help the player improve and to do that, the player needs to put more work to get higher standings weekly.

Planning & Calculation

Each rank requires a total of 5,000 points to progress further. So, If the player is a rank 6 knight or stone guard and the progress bar is half full, the points that will be rewarded is up to 22,500 for the week. These rank points can be looked into by accessing the Honour Tab. It is recommended that for a couple of first weeks one should simply grind as much as points they can, as it will help the player climb up the first few ranks and also help to get a better understanding of how the system works. Once you’ve done that, make sure to keep a track on the EST points earned during the grind and it is going to affect the weekly reset on the character, accordingly. After the information gained, the player can start to understand where he stands in the PVP system of the server they belong in and plan a strategy to climb ranks.

Rank Decaying

Players receive 20% decay based on the points that they’ve gained in the previous week; all of this is done in the starting of a new week. If the week is ended with a total of 10,000 points, then the new week will start with a total of 8,000 points. As these rankings are based on the previous week’s points, the decay will not affect where you stand if you end up revering the lost points.

Ranks & Titles

There are a total of 14 ranks for both fractions and each of them requires a minimum number of points needed to be calculated every week. These are calculated with comparison to the other players on the server and each of these ranks helps to gain rewards from PVP consumables to Epic Mounts that do not require any skill of gear to ride at the highest ranks. These ranks are also applied to the character in the form of a title.

Dishonourable Kills

Also known as DK, happens when a player kills a civilian NPC in PVP combat. These civilians are normally low level who are found useful to the opposite fractions and helps to stall a player’s progress when unavailable. They are identified through their ‘Civilian’ tag next to their character name when targeted by the rival faction. These points make you lose ratings immediately and with enough DKs on your head, you may also lose a rank. This is the only thing that can affect a player rating at the immediate spot, instead of waiting for a week to update.
