We’ve also added “.join” command allowing you to join battlegrounds and arena (.join arena) from anywhere, so you can do other things in the game while waiting in the queue.
We are going to additionally introduce these features:
Further steps will be taken in order to actively combat people that do not participate in battlegrounds. We strongly recommend you use the built-in feature to report a player by right-clicking on his character portrait.
We’ve significantly reduced the cost of creating an Arena Team for each bracket, making it cheaper to get into.
The first Arena Season will start when at least 50 Arena Teams will be made and will start from the next arena flush on Wednesday and the following changes will come to life:
After each Arena Season ends, a so-called "off-season" will be live, it will last for a week after each Season. During the off-season, you will be able to get Personal and Team Rating, and also Arena Points which can be used to buy PvP gear from the recent season. After the new season begins, Arena Points will be removed from all characters and the amount of Honor Points will be somewhat decreased.
Gladiator's Salvation/Kodohide/Wyrmhide/Dragonhide and other armor sets will be available from the beginning and their stats will be adjusted for the current patch as all items with Bonus Healing won't give additional Bonus Spell Damage. The arena vendor will also display only items that your class can use.
For the first Arena Season, arena gear will no longer require Arena Rating to purchase, except for weapons that require a rating of 1850 to purchase. On top of that, you will be able to purchase arena Gloves, Librams, Idols, and Totems for Honor Points and Marks of Honor instead of Arena Points.
PvP Gems are now being sold by Master Sergeant Biggins and Brave Stonehide for Honor Points.
