PvP Rewards consist of different kind of items (Armor/Weapons/Trinkets, etc) that can be purchased once a certain rank or reputation status is achieved. Items awarded by gaining rank can be purchased for gold in Champions' Hall (Alliance) or the Hall of Legends (Horde). Faction specific battleground rewards must be purchased from vendors at the entrances of the battleground (Not from the cities where the Battlemasters are located). The only exception is Alterac Valley, in which you may purchase PvP rewards from vendors outside Alterac Valley, as well as from vendors inside the instance itself.
Rank specific items: Will be unlocked for purchase once a certain rank requirement is met. For example, rank 2 (Corporal - Alliance/ Grunt - Horde) will allow the purchase of your team's insignia trinket.
Reputation rewards: Participating in the three different battlegrounds (Warsong Gulch, Alterac Valley, Arathi Basin) will award you with reputation points to each respective faction. When a certain level is achieved (Honored, Revered, Exalted) new items will be unlocked for purchase.
Completing battlegrounds (BGs) and achieving honorable kills (both inside and out of BGs) will award you with honor points. These honor points are converted to ranking points by each sunday. To be eligible for an increase in rank, at least 25 honorable kills (HK) must be achieved by the end of the current week. With sufficient honor points and 25 HKs a player will move closer to the next rank. Additionally, your total amount of ranking points will decrease by 20% each week, making it very possible to decrease in rank or remain in one.
The ranks and rewards are as following:
Rank 1, Private / Scout - Tabard
Rank 2, Corporal / Grunt - Team insignia trinket
Rank 3, Sergeant / Sergeant - Superior-quality cloak, 10% discount on all goods and repairs from your faction's NPCs
