I usually just login for about 2 hours a day now and help my lvl 30-50 friends through instances. Then I go PvP or raise every single skill I have to 300 lol.
Eeeessh back after christmas to having to Pvp all the time now - cant wait for TBC to come out so Ill have something interesting to do rather than ganking Horde or being ganked by Horde pugs (who actually work together, unlike us Alliance :/)
Had to spec Fury also, which as fun as it may be, isn't exactly skilled imo. Lets just smash buttons and howl and intercept and smash some buttons again isnt my kinda thing. Pulling a Core Hound in MC from behind 4 mobs, without pulling any other mobs is my forté, or keeping aggro from 5 mobs while i have rogues nuking, mages AoEing, or Locks doing HellFire while still keeping aggro on all mobs.
PvP rewards right now are easy pickings, 1 week of hard grinding should get you 30k honor there or thereabouts, but I only have 4 hrs per day so I go for 15-20k depending on bonus honor - which is a new weapon last week, and a new one this week (both the GM blades 1handers) which will be much better than what I have now. The 2.9 speed blade will be great for Devastate when I spec back to prot for the grind/instances.
Aaaaaand the piéce de résistánce is I now have 4 epic mounts and even though I still dont have 150 riding skill after 15 months of being 60 (LOL) the price will come down in US and EU next wednesday the pre-TBC patch is released
EDIT - Unless someone has solid evidence that this cant happen I would seriously advise NOT SPENDING your Honor points after you have what you need. The honor system was revamped to allow people to reach the same level as each other quickly, but this isnt so. If you have good gear, take the weapons and save the rest of your honor. When you use your normal (good) gear to level, your honor will be saved for you to do 50 EoTS battlegrounds and then spend your honor on the lvl 70 PvP items
