Legion PvP Season 4 Ending Soon!

Season 4 – End of Season Rewards
If you participated in Season 4, to ensure you receive the rewards that you’re due, please keep the following in mind:

  • Refrain from transferring your character(s) to another realm or faction until after Legion Season 4 has ended.
  • Legion Season 4 titles and mounts will be awarded approximately two weeks after the season ends.

Faction-Based Rewards
Don’t forget—end-of-season rewards are based on your faction. If you transfer your character to the other faction, you must have 50 wins after your transfer to receive the reward. You must have 150 wins for Gladiator and Cruel Gladiator.

When the last sounds of clashing weapons fade, how will you measure up this season?

Is the Celestial Calf supposed to be cageable and resellable on 7.3 PTR? Sounds like a bug.
This change has been reverted. You can still collect three of them now in 7.3. (WarcraftDevs)

TLDR:

Before the patch, if you get a relic that doesn't have the trait you want, you throw it away.

After the patch, if you get a relic that doesn't have the trait you want, you can plug it into the Netherlight Crucible and maybe get it anyway.

That's about all there is to it! (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Very pleased with sharding being removed for the event. Makes our RP much more inclusive.

    Any news about the giveaway? The draw would've been over two days ago by now and again I didn't see any notes on the latest news post. I'm sure I didn't win, but it's not clear if the winners have even been PM'ed.

    It still baffles me that despite how strict Blizz has been to sticking to their 11 week schedule, there are people out there who still believe 7.3 won't come out for another few months.

    I'm really impressed to see this happen. Haven't seen Blizzard do something like this for the players in a while.

    For as little as I care about RP servers, I do have 2 level 100s on an RP server that will be very happy to farm the TLPD against only that server instead of all of NA at once.

    This still has the fundamental flaw that it requires a relic to drop to begin with, it's not like they drop every week in a raid or even every month.

    They are actually really poignant. This one not as much, but he can't put out gold every week.

    Not entirely, CRZ is allowing multiple people from different servers to play in the same zone on the same "server" at a time. Sharding is only allowing X number of people in a zone at a time and when that number is reached creating a mirror server of that zone to put new people in. CRZ is to help low pop areas, Sharding is to prevent congestion and lag.

    You can buy relics for the Nethershardesque currency on Argus.

    I'm experiencing the Tournament of Ages for the second time this year, and I have to say that I really appreciate Blizzard putting the effort in to fix this sharding issue. I was at the opening ceremony for the event, and my guild, including well over a dozen others, could not see the firework show that they put on, due to the sharding.

    Fixes such as these are not only an enormous help to those who attend the Tournament of Ages, though to all other RPers throughout the game, as well. Huge respect to Blizzard for taking the time out to show the RP community some love and care, it means a great deal to us.
