Arena will head off into the background with Wrath.They want everyone in Lake Wintergrasp playing with the vehicles.Blizzard didn't spend all that time developing a PVP zone to go back to little box fights.While some people will still play arenas and prepare for tourneys.If it doesn't have the best PVP rewards in the game, most people wont bother.

Keep in mind blizzard also spent all that time developing 2 new arenas.

You'll need rating for everything from arena in wrath (just probably not the blue set). Blizzard isn't going to make the same mistake with S2 and 3 sets which didn't really have ratings.So no, you'll be doing arena the exact same as you would do now, the pvp zone isn't going to replace arena whatso ever. The only difference is you could probably get the points ready for when you have the rating. Sadly arena is where you will get the high end pvp gear.

Arenas will still be alive and well. Lake wintergrasp will just allow arena players to control how fast they get their gear, instead of having to wait a week for points.If you really need a peice of gear now, make sure your in lake wintergrasp everytime its up. If not, just wait for your arena team to give you points. Pretty simple.Either way, i'm planning to be in lake wintergrasp ASAP. It just looks like so much fun.
