As shown on the article on Honor, there are various ways to acquire honor. This article describes and compares a number of techniques for obtaining lots of honor.
Every 24 minutes, the player can demand 300 for 12500 from Al Zahir, Northburgh and Garibaldi. Each of the three parties is on a separate cooldown, so the maximum honor that can be obtained in this way is 900 per 24 minutes, or 37.5 per minute.
Trading with neutral parties
Trading with neutral parties yields honor. When the player has traded goods worth a certain amount of gold coins, honor is awarded.
In the Venice expansion, active and passive trade, and buying and selling all count towards this target. The amount of honor received in this way ends at 445 at every 142,400 worth of trade. This is 1 for every 320 worth of trade.
There is no limit to the amount of honor that can be obtained this way, other than the volume of trade that you are able to generate.
As an example, if you set up 10 pearl necklace chains and sell the product actively (via a shipping route), this results in 10x165/320 = 5 honor per minute.
Assuming that you choose a good that yields a profit, this method has no cost per point of honor, but a profit.
A Tournament arena yields up to 600 every 45 minutes.
Place of Pilgrimage
