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), were immediately converted to the new honor points in patch 4.0.1 at the following ratios:
|Old currency||1x Old currency in Honor Points||1x Honor Point in old currency|
|Pre-4.0 Honor point||0.024||41.667|
|Pre-4.0 Arena point||0.85||1.176|
|Battleground Mark of Honor||2.976||0.336|
The normal cap of honor points is 4,000 (paralleling Justice Points). If players were granted more than 4,000 honor points as a result of this one-time conversion, they were unable to earn any more until the excess had been spent.
In patch 4.0.3, any honor points in excess of 4,000 were immediately converted to gold at a rate of 35 per honor point.
