    Yeah, so, ummm.... Looks like they nerfed Colliseum loot.

    Last week I got a shit load of honor and this http://www.wowhead.com/item=118904 for winning.

    I just won a few minutes ago, and the loot...? 5g.

    Yep. 5g.

    That's it. Just 5g... 5.1g if you want to be more precise.

    Das fuq?


    Not even 1 honor? Not like I'm honor capped or anything. Should have given some honor too, no?

    I won last week and I don't think I got any honor. Just my flags and stuff.

    Assuming it's hard to get. Well, I guess if you're a Rogue or something, you can brag a bit...

    I'm a Blood DK, I got it on my first try.

    I hope you didn't turn in the quest and you just opened the loot chest. Or you just wasted 1500 conquest.

    I presume that item is consumed on use correct? Otherwise every major raiding will be using that for burn phases of mythic.

    It doesn't really matter. There is a weekly conquest cap and so long as you win your rated games it will make no difference.

    You cannot honestly be surprised. The entire affair is "Go Ret Paladin/Blood DK or GTFO!".

    The fact they put any meaningful reward behind it with things the state they are is mind-boggling enough.

    Nope, it's unlimited, has 1 hr CD. Used to be able to be used in arenas and BGs but they fixed it in a recent patch. Still works anywhere in the world outside of arena/BGs though, even Ashran and the Colliseum.

    Don't know about burn phases, it does make you not able to receive any outside healing (self heals still work though) Maybe if burn phase has no AoE damage. And again, only useable once every hour. Also, may not work in raiding, haven't tried it yet.

    Why just not go BGs for honor its so easy to grind it... Just maybe its mean to be like PvP give you Honor and not wannabes like assran/coliseum.

    Lol? This shit is so out of whack with any sort of balanced pvp that I was surprised it even offered any honor or conquest whatsoever. I mean what next, honor grinding in wpvp? Hahahaha.
    This signature is full.

    Like I said, it doesn't affect your actual cap. Anyone can get cap outside of coliseum anyway. Trying to make a logical connection between its reward and balance is arbitrary at best.

    If you want to get more conquest points than the next guy you need a higher rating. That's what counts. Honestly who cares what rewards honour and what doesn't anyway? As soon as season starts and you have your honour gear it becomes useless.

    Also you could grind honour in world PvP if you really wanted to anyway. It'd simply be inefficient.

    I actually do respect ranged/caster LoW because of the Wile E. Coyote-level of scheme needed to even come close for them is utterly insane.

    Plus it's a hell of a lot more entertaining to watch than the usual Ret Paladin/Blood DK Special Olympics most matches sadly end up being.

    The difference between Lords/Ladies of War and plebs is a trail of excuses and balls of steel. Just sayin'.

    I got that title when I moved my characters from horde to the alliance. Lots of people had the same thing going on.

    What makes it so special again?

    Then there's no hope for your brain or your title. You will forever wallow in your failure to become a true Lord of War and envy those who rose to the occasion. You will never have Grommash cast his gaze of secret envy on you as you step on the skulls of your lessers in the arena. Mediocrity is your lot and hopelessness is your life. The road to your inevitable inner sadness will be paved with inane excuses.

    No shit? Man, I didn't get that when I won. I'll have to do it again, that thing sounds like fun.
