For the new season this is what I'm trying to accumulate before it hits:

100 of each BG Mark
75k Honor
5k Arena points
3-4k gold (in order to replace all of your enchants/ epic gems)

Currently I'm at:

100 of each BG Mark
74k Honor
5k arena points
and 3.5k gold

How much of each do you guys have?

I want to get... at least 70 of each mark (should let me buy everything)
at least 40k honor
not sure about arena points i'll explain below
2k gold (i am poor, i'll need to do my dailies)

Currently I'm at:
100 WSG, 100 AV, 45 AB, 60 EOTS
3k Honor (just bought my Battlemaster's trinket so i'm drained)
2430 Arena points with 711 incoming from this weeks matches.
450g LOL, time to farm dailies

I'm not sure about arena points because come tuesday the 24th, if i stay up late, and wait for rollover, i'll be able to by my s3 mace which'll greatly improve my 2v2s from using the s3 sword, but likewise i'll be sitting at little to nothing in terms of arena points for s4. This is a toughy.

I'm in a tight stop where to focus myself. I roll Muggs Ret when I want to pvp, but the alliance is just terribad on Emberstorm, so I rerolled a Blood Elf Disc Priest and have been getting him S1 gear. I'm torn between getting my main/loved toon gear he'd rarely use or getting my new priest gear that's really just riding the wave of horde success.

I like winning, so I'm leaning toward the priest atm :P

I think the mace would be a bigger upgrade. It would give you a better advantage at the beginning of the season, and until you replace with S4 weapon you'll need it. S4 gear, just like any other set upgrade in WoW doesn't have a crazy increase in stats if you're going from S3-S4, so I doubt you'd miss is anywhere near as much as your mace.

true enough, i just love that blizz recognized that warriors need hit on pvp gear too, and up'd the hit rating on all of the s4 gear. instead of DECREASING it like they did from s2->s3.

Yeah that should be nice, I'm really looking forward to this season because this will be the first season since I hit 70 that I actually have a good PvP set, and not like 100 resil lol.

Started PVPing late. Ala 2 weeks ago when Cataclysms dropped lol. Had been gathering points via the "/2 LF 10 game sfor points" on Monday nights. Got the honor cap and all the tokens I need but very few arena points sadly. Going to have probably 2.5k for the 24th and I don't even have full Venge.

Honor: 75k
Tokens: Did the math, just enough for each token to get all the Guardian's gear. Forget the exact numbers.
Arena: 1300 + this week and next. Probably around 800 each week.
Gold: Only like 2k in coin atm but I have a dead guild's guild bank in my possession, so alot more then 2k.

Honor: 33K
Badges: 7 (Just don't PvE)
Marks: 100 AV, 4 AB, 50 EotS, 80 WSG (I HATE Alliance AB)
500g (Just finished Stormherald)
1331 Arena

Though, to be honest, I am having a hard time motivating myself to get gear that will be obsolete in what, 3 maybe 4 months when WotLK hits (or Warhammer is released, whichever comes first.)

It'll be a bit in the balance, but I think I'll have enough points across the remaining two weeks to close out my last couple of pieces of S3 and have enough to get the S4 gloves. The plan is to finish it up, close it out, say good-bye and farewell to arenas.

I'll miss them, but at least it gives me another evening off.

Is there a limit to how many honor points I can accumulate?
Yes, there is a limit to how many honor points a character can accumulate, but it is currently set to be approximately twice as much as the most expensive reward. If you max out your honor points, you'll need to spend some before you can earn additional honor points.

Hmm, considering the new medallion costs 40k, shouldn't we be able to save 80k now then?

Or does "approximately"= 5k?

lol, but atleast you already have s3 wep so you won't be lacking much in arenas. I won't be able to hit honor cap again due to work and vacation =\

Plus I still can't find any teams or partners QQ
