World of Warcraft PVP Rewards
PVP (Player Versus Player) is an important aspect of World of Warcraft, many players choosing this path over PVE (Player Versus Environment).

World of Warcraft PVP can mean anything from one-on-one combat, World PVP, Arena PVP or Battlegrounds PVP. Each of these combat methods can be further divided into several other categories:
• One-on-One PVP Combat - Duels (No rewards, mostly used for practice)
• One-on-One PVP Combat - Normal PVP (Attacking the other faction's player in areas you're allowed to and if his or her PVP Flag is on)
• World PVP - Several areas in the game offer World PVP objectives that can give reputation and honor, but also have specific rewards. Check out our World PVP Rewards section to find out more.
• Arena PVP - There are currently 3 types of Arenas, depending on the size of the team: 2v2, 3v3 and 5v5. Each Arena team will have a rating and based on your rating, you can earn additional Arena Points each week.
