Legion PvP Season 7 Ending Soon - Get Ready for the Post-Season!

If you participated in Season 7, 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 7 has ended.
  • Legion Season 7 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 and 150 wins after your transfer to earn Gladiator and Dominant Gladiator.

Jump into Post-Season
Once the pre-expansion patch is live, we’ll be kicking off a special post-season through to the launch of Battle for Azeroth. While there will not be any end-of-season rewards such a mount, title, or Conquest to earn, players will be able to gain catch-up gear that will be rewarded from strongboxes.

Leaderboards Temporarily Offline
Please note that PvP Leaderboards will not be available once the pre-expansion patch goes live but will become available again with the start of the new Battle for Azeroth PvP season.

Battle for Azeroth PvP Preview - Dueler's Guild

For many PvPers, there’s something special about going toe-to-toe against a formidable foe—especially when that foe is another player behind their own keyboard. For some, it’s the rush of adrenaline that makes their hands tremble as they set them to keyboard and mouse. For others, it’s the icy cool feeling of calm that courses through their veins before the action kicks off. You’ll often see these players gathered outside the gates of Stormwind or Orgrimmar, flags firmly planted as they /duel simply for the joy of it.

With the introduction of the Dueler’s Guild in Battle for Azeroth, we’re kicking the experience of the simple duel up a notch. Get ready to put your skills to the test against fellow duelists from your own faction, earning a few achievements, a title, a tabard, and (of course) bragging rights along the way.

Players at level 120 who have War Mode enabled will be able to queue for a Dueler’s Guild battle at the Bouncers (Alliance) or Troll Guards (Horde) in the War Headquarters for their faction, located in Boralus and Zuldazar respectively. Each headquarters is indicated on the map (M) with the Alliance symbol or the Horde symbol. (This is also where you’ll collect your War Chest for your efforts in certain PvP activities during the week.) Once you’ve queued, a buff will be placed on you showing your place in the queue.

Level 120 Players who have War Mode enabled

Alliance – Hook Point in Boralus
Horde – The Mugambala in Zuldazar

Once in the queue, you can move around the area around the War Headquarters a little—just don’t go too far, or you could lose your spot in the queue. But that doesn’t stop you from observing the duelists in action. Speak to Hexpriest Junda in The Mugambala if you’re Horde or to Sea Seer Crystal if you’re Alliance to spectate and keep an eye on all the carnage while you wait.

Once it’s your turn to battle, you’ll need to beat three opponents consecutively to earn the achievement Prize Fighter. Completing this achievement along with Dueling Master and Thirty Six and Two will award the achievement Master of Duels and the title of Contender.

You’ll be able to buff (and get buffs) to prepare for your matches before you begin your duel, but it’s important to note that cooldowns will not refresh with each opponent you face. When you win a match, you’ll only have a short period of time before you face your next opponent. After you’ve defeated three opponents, you’ll be removed from the dueling arena for the next contenders to take center stage.

This is just the beginning of what we have in mind, but we hope that it’s the start of something dueltastic* that you’ll want to dig your teeth into. The Dueler’s Guild provides friendly players an opportunity to hone their PvP skills and then head out into the world to take on a common foe . . . the other faction. We’ll see you in the dueling ring!

*We just made this word up, but we’re sure it’s bound to catch on.

    Yeah I googled the date the WOD pvp season ended and it was July 8th, 11 days before the pre patch hit.

    I mean here is the link


    It makes sense for July 17th as it allows the maximum amount of time for people to do the mage tower.

    Ok so finally they are adding a duel que system 1 vs 1 about time I must say... I mean I remember we have been asking for this since forever and I remember Blizzard reasons for not adding it because of "Class balance".

    Why on earth is it possible to get buffs from others? All that accomplishes is to make it unfair.

    Well if its anything like Brawlers guild then people are likely gonna buff each other out of courtesy whilst spectating.

    Release build is already up on the ptr and that usually means the patch is going live the next reset.

    It was data mined awhile ago that the concordance trait would hit 100, and as it is only 81 today im gunna go with the 17th for release.

    So they finally grew tired of people begging for shitty 1vs1.
    It better not be taking valuable dev time from real arena.

    Sure would've been nice to have given us a concrete date Blizz! I need 5 more RBG wins, but given the limited amount of time I have, I'm not sure if I'll be able to get them this week, but with the very real possibility that Blizz is just going to drop it on Tuesday, I've no choice but to rearrange my weekend schedule to get those last five wins. Last thing I'm going to do is rely on a speculative release date (the 17th), only for it to turn out that it really was the 10th and all of my work was for nothing.

    Towlie said on stream yesterday hes 99.9% sure pre patch will drop on the 17th, and that guy is in the know.
