    new arena system in 6.0

    "Trial of the Gladiator also uses tournament rules. You can buy gear from a vendor and play, no need to grind up a set. PvE gear won't work in here!"

    Sooooooooooo...this means no more grinding for PvP gear if you want to do arenas? Personally I love the idea of everybody having the same gear, from the start. Skill will finally be the deciding factor. The gap between 496 and 522 is INSANE...remember the dmg when 5.4 hit? Well ppl get globaled now. So newcomers have no chance whatsoever. => I'm all for the change.

    What are your thoughts. Is removing gear progression from PvP a good move?

    I'm guessing they will have it so that you have to earn a certain amount of honor/conquest before this vendor that lets you buy all this gear, to be unlocked.

    God I'd love it if this was also the best gear for BGs, and worked in them. PvP in general would be better if gear wasn't a factor, not just arena.

    That would be stupid as the point is clearly to make it easy to get into Arena and have Arena be gear balanced. This will keep me playing a long time. The number 1 thing I hate in WoW (not balance related) is the Rated BG gear grind. Removing that and making it so I can just log in and play like I do with Team Fortress is awesome.

    Instant 90, no gear grind = FOTM reroll heaven.

    "Gamer" is not a bad word. I identify as a gamer. When calling out those who persecute and harass, the word you're looking for is "asshole." @_DonAdams
    When you see someone in a thread making the same canned responses over and over, click their name, click view forum posts, and see if they are a troll. Then don't feed them.

    smoke and mirrors thats all this is.blizz is making it easy to re roll because they refuse to fix pvp = separate pvp and pve and go back to pvp and pve specs.

    has blizz announced any big changes to pvp?like what i just stated?all they do x-pac after x-pac is add more shit to the game and it fucks up pvp even more,same shit different day.they could have spent their man hours fixing this game/pvp but they choose to spend their hours working on player housing and poky-man.starting in wrath pvp has gotten worse every x-pac,i wonder if that trend will continue?

    Good. 100% skill-based, 0% gear-based is how PvP should be.

    I've been saying it for years. What took them so long?

    hmm they should do it so that the vendor arena gear can only be used in arena then, cant be enchanted or altered, doesn't work in bgs or pve, (also pve or bg gear isn't usuable in arena) then it might be ok..

    but tbh gear is not the issue in arena/pvp... its the abilities and OP abilities and CC that needs looking at,, some things shouldn't be allowed in arena..

    sounds like another "brush it under the carpet and HEY look gear for doing nowt.... now you don't need to worry bout how shit pvp is anyway cos LOOK shinies for you with no effort" enjoy/...

    This and:
    Wasn't the "no more grind"-part only for (a) specific time(s) during the week? Hence when it isn't that time you'll have to play normally with gearing etc?
    Well met!

    yes

    wanna know whats the best? they are keeping the old talens, like shockwave+arms, sfury/bloodhorror+affly etc. so I doubt arenas are gonna be good anyways.
    PvE is a minigame // Rerolled from affly to spriest after 8 years, thx pandaland changes

    This cracks me up "skill based". Flavor of the month based always will and always will be.

    1 character per account when you upgrade to WoD, yeah.

    Good change.

    Yep. It completely depends on how often and how long the Trial of the Gladiator is available.

    I don't know if Holinka spoke about time frames, but if it's only available for 4 hours on a sunday afternoon then it'll be awful. If it's available every evening from 6pm to 10pm then it'll be awesome.

    Loving this change,

    Can't remember how many time because of work i have tanked rating due to being behind the gear curve, even with the catch up system its hard to stay on the bleeding edge of gear progression. Now it doesn't matter with regards to gear........

    Only thing now is to address separate pvp/pve modifiers as certain abilities are op/shit in pvp due to pve mechanics driving the majority of balance issues. This should now be achievable each season as they know the absolute maximum gear stats available and no mixing in pve gear to fuck up the formulae.

    Stuff like combustion triple dipping from resilience and obliterate hitting for an absolute shit tonne on cloth etc.

    If they were to do that i'd be a happy bunny

    Light on details but personally I think it sounds promising.
