Arena Skirmishes Bonus Event July 10 – 13

Service Update July 10, 12:05 p.m. PDT - We are aware of an issue preventing the quest The Arena Calls from properly displaying your number of wins. Arena Skirmish wins are being correctly counted, and you will be able to complete the quest after your tenth win.

Through the end of the day on Monday, Arena Skirmishes award triple bonus honor. There’s never been a better time to queue up for the Arena and crack some skulls. Keep an eye out for the event-only quest The Arena Calls. When you win 10 Arena matches, the quest awards 500 Conquest Points which do not count against your weekly Conquest Point maximum.

In case you’ve never participated in an Arena Skirmish, here’s an easy how-to guide:
  • From anywhere in-game, open the Group Finder (default hotkey: i)
  • Select the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window.
  • Under Arena Battles, choose either 2v2 or 3v3.
  • Click the Join Battle button to be matched up with teammates.

It’s Arena PvP! Rush in and bash your opponents.

Will you answer the call to battle?

Definitely concerned about the off peak experience. (holinka)

Lore
And if Warlocks can control/manipulate souls, which are undead, to haunt people, then they are technically practicing necromancy..
I suppose that depends on your definition of necromancy, and it's ok to have your own. Control of souls vs. raising soulless UD. (Muffinus)
Not really...necromancy extends to controlling souls/ghosts/banshees and Gul'dan used a variation of the Soulstone ability to
I don't think I'm going to convince you, nor should I Cool to see someone so passionate about their toon! (Muffinus)

abilities are non-canon?
Of course you use souls, you have soul shards. You dont use them to raise the dead though. (Muffinus)

Reputation / Questing
You guys really need to change how you get credit for events. Dying when it was 5sec away from being completed and missing out suck
Totally agree. Will work on fixing. (holinka)

    increased spawn rate on those chests and rares drop more than one?

    Its super easy to do that quest alrdy even on high pop realms. Just go to the deathtalon spawning zone and run around u find those little shards that give from like 1-3 fragments, quest done in 5 mins xD
  1. Ukerric's Avatar
    The little shards are the equivalent of chests, but since they're not "supiciously glowing", players tend not to notice them.

    Ah, the "man fuck this shit" solution.

    Stupid question (from someone who hasn't PvP'ed for years) but what's the difference between Arena Skirmishes and normal Arena?

    I thought Skirmish were random queue'd arena battles, but the forums are full of tears from people trying to do this weekend quest and claiming that they're getting rolled hard by organized teams?
  1. Cinnamohn's Avatar
    When you can't be bothered to fix it, you simply remove it..

    Let's relate that to this expansion:
    "Classes are unbalanced." -> "Where did all of my abilities go?"
    "We want more content!" -> "There is literally nothing to do outside of raiding."
    "Bring back world PvP!" -> "I have absolutely no reason to leave my garrison."

    /sigh

    Pretty much ... those bugged/flaky/whatever beams are pretty messed up though

    I don't think the whale shark dropping two is going to make that suddenly viable each day. The fact that, and I keep hoping everyday that this will change, the shipyard equipment blueprints are not account wide is the only reason you can still get a group to kill that stupid thing. that will end soon though ...

    Getting 10 a day is easy: go to Fangrila and do the 3 x challenges in the Challenger Arena there. You can even find groups for it (search for 'Rumble' in Premades). Killing the 3 NPCs gets you most of your Fel-Corrupted Apexis Fragments for the day. I always start there, then do the rest of my Tanaan dailies and 10 x Fel-Corrupted Apexis Fragments is so easy.

    I'm waiting for the hotfix that says the legendary no longer requires anything to do with the godawful ship shit.

    All this pushing for arena skirmish, seems like they are trying to get people away from ashran to avoid people moaning about queues

    On another note, Muffinus needs to look up the definition of necromancy because yes, what warlocks do with souls does in fact count as necromancy.
  1. Queen of Hamsters's Avatar
    Fel-Corrupted Apexis Fragments should now be slightly easier to obtain.

    In what way? Would've been nice with a clarification. On a high level realm I still don't see any chests or shards around the bonus objective areas.

    Last i checked, it was all still fiction and creative license regarding definitions of fictional constructs like "necromancy" is perfectly fine. The moment necromancy becomes fact, you can resume quibbling over definitions.... I'll be busy with prep for the ensuing zombie apocalypse.

    Well there's a cave north from HFC, it's full of chests (you just have to run through once, to know where they are).

    That orc just looks like an ugly human with big teeth. Looks like Metzen had a hand in designing his orc husbandos once again.

    Yeah, your reading comprehension, since it is for Skirmishes, which don't currently reward any CONQ since they are non-rated.
