How to Trade Honor Points for Arena Points
We see them in Order and Chaos PvP, the wings and S3 gear, and we know we are about to get whalooped. The key to becoming them is getting enough PvP resilience gear so we can use our skills to win. One of the best sets to do this with is S2, or S 2.5 gear. You need to farm dungeons for the Season 2.5 gear, so the simplest way is to collect your S2 set.
This set is known as the Merciless Combatant set, which costs arena points. Every time you PvP you are earn honor points, and these points are traded in for the arena points you will use to buy your s2 gear. With PvP gear, you will begin to win more. After that you can gain rank, and use honor points to buy S3 gear.
Up until that point you trade currencies so that you can purchase the Merciles Combatent set. Remember to start with two pieces of the set, which does not include the feet, so that you can get the 150 resilient set bonus. You can worry about rings, necks and trinkets after that.

What Is The Honor To Arena Point Conversion?
Gameloft has given us a pretty fair honor to arena point conversion. For every 500 honor points you will receive 1500 arena points. When you make the trade you will be given a token, which will give you the 1500 arena points. When you click on the token, the points are directly converted. You must click on this token, which will be placed in your bag after you have spent the honor points.
When you PvP, you earn honor points until you have earned 1500 honor points. You are then given a reward chest, which could contain a tab that will help you gain more honor. If you have no tabs, you can cap, or fill, your arena points once a day. When you work out the math that means that your 1500 honor points will convert into 4500 arena points.
That means you can earn your PvP gloves in about 4 days. After a couple weeks, you will have two pieces, which will help you win more battles because you will have the 150 resilient set bonus. Plus the resilience on each set piece. If you still want to add resilience, you can spend a hundred and fifty gold to open a blue slot (in the gear), and add a resilience gem. I recommend not adding anything under a level 3 resilince gem.
Where Do I Trade in Honor Points For Arena Points?
There are two vendors in OAC where you can year your honor points for arena points. They are located on opposite ends of Greenmont. One is at Glory Plaza and the other is at the Still Ladder. They are located around the other PvP vendors. You can recognize them by the green bread icon over their heads.
They are the same vendors who sell arena potions and food. It doesn't matter which one you use, they both convert the currencies the same. Of you don't have free will yet, pick it up from the vendor in the Still Ladder. Free will is a spell you need in PvP.
In both locations you will find vedors for blue S 1.5 gear, which costs arena points, too. I don't recommend this set, unless your just substituting it for a piece or two. I think it's best to just take your lumps, and get the Merciless Combatant set.
You will also find the S2 Merciless Combatant set here, and the Glorious Victor S3 set. One of the NPC's, with a yellow bubble over their had will explain the rank you will need for your S3 set. How much S2 you will need before you start saving for s3 depends on the quality of your partners, cless and your own skill.
Wrapping It Up
As you can see, it is easier to get PvP gear then it had ever been. You don't have to spend months and millions to gear up. You just need to have patience, consistency and a little knowledge.
The various PvP tabs wool help you along your way. Make use of the free ones in game, and you will be epic before you know it. The key is to not give up.
As you journey through PvP, keep your eyes peeled for a class and skill combination that leads to the most wins. Of course there maybe some nights when you just have to suck of up, and take your losses. If there are a lot of S3's in the arena, you may want to let them cap before you enter.
PvP is lots of fun, the trick is getting better gear. Don't rely on gear alone. Once you live long enough to use skills, then keep working hard. Gear might go a long way, but skill will take you further.
