Honor gear is has 2 main functions in the game, the first being to be a relatively acceptable entry level gear to both end game pve content and (mostly) pvp content. The 2nd function is that a certain quantity of honor gear is necessary in order to have a complete pvp set. As such both new players and veterans will participate in the honor system.
Honor Gear follows the Arena Season. With every new season, a new bunch of items are introduced, while the previous season's honor items are now available at a discount.
In previous Season, Arena Gear that is two season old could also be bought for honor, giving newer player a chance to stay somewhat competitive.
During Season 7 Hateful Gladiator gear will be sold for honor points, Furious Gladiator gear will be sold for a combination of arena and honor points and also sold for Emblems of Conquest both of which have a rating requirement, and Relentless Gladiator gear will be sold for arena points with a rating requirement.
