End of Arena Season 7
If you’re like a lot of our level 80 multiboxers, you probably go in and lose your ten games for the week and then absorb your free points and enjoy reduced pvp gear honor costs. Well, the end of season 7 could just be a couple short weeks away. Blizzard announced yesterday that season 7 is set to end on January 19th. As per the usual, we’ll get a new Vault of Archavon boss, a new set of PVP gear (should be iLevel 277) and the current top gear available for stupid amounts of honor. I suspect we’ll also get the new set of gear available for frost badges.
All in all, this is definitely business as usual for the end of the season. If you’re saving up for a piece of gear right now, I’d suggest holding on to your honor and just splurging when the new season starts on the next tier of gear up. Enjoy your PVPing.
We are currently planning to end Arena Season 7 as early as January 19. At that point we will go through our normal process to determine who is eligible for the end-of-season rewards. This process should take approximately one week. It’s very important for players who feel that they may be eligible for the arena-specific titles and/or Relentless Gladiator’s Frostwyrm to refrain from transferring their character to another realm until after Arena Season 7 ends.
The following Arena Season will not begin for at least one week after the current season ends. During this time between seasons, all rated matches will be turned off and only skirmishes will be available. When Arena Season 8 begins, all team ratings, personal rating, and arena points will be wiped, but matchmaking rating and honor points will remain.
Also, a note to all of your multiboxing PVPers. If any of you guys are competing regularly in higher end arena, let me know. I’d love to give you guys some spotlight time.
