Dec 16th 2008 8:24AM I apologize for mistake. I meant to say Arena points are required for all PVP gear Sorry. Only higher 2 tiers require ratings.
Dec 16th 2008 8:14AM Blizzard's insistence to require Arena ratings for all PVP gear means that I will not participate in any BGs. This decision was a game breaker for me. Arenas are the worst concept Blizzard has ever designed and I refuse to participate. This comes from someone that really enjoys BGs. Blizzard please wake up!!!!!! There should be a set of PVP gear that you do not have to do arenas for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nov 7th 2008 5:00PM Never mind just checked out blacksmithing more and it stinks too. You can only socket 2 items and only one socket per item.
Wow professions now a joke!!!
Nov 7th 2008 4:55PM Hmmm My mage won't get good items from tailoring anymore???? OK well its time to make all my 70s a Blacksmith.
Then at least I can make sockets on my gear. This is pathetic! The tailoring gear was some of the most fun to get and use in the game. Big Big Mistake!!! It seems to be another attack on non Raiders to me. I thought Blizzard already learned that was not an optimal choice. Now you WILL See some crazy professions on everyone. I have question for all of you. Why would you not do Blacksmithing now?? Sockets seem to almost make that path OP.
Nov 6th 2008 5:18PM This is a tremendous Idea. They need to make non raiders happy too. And looking at PVP right now not much of an option there. Arena system needs to die. Its funny how all the Raiders get so scared of what non raiders can get. And we are even the majority of Wow. Great Job Blizzard!!!
Oct 24th 2008 2:17PM If its in Kara I for one won't be there. Cant they come up with something more fun????????
Oct 8th 2008 6:06PM Ideas like this one can inject much excitement into a 4 year old game. This kind of idea can help WOW survive the next ten years. Old Arenas= UNPOPULAR!!!
PVE Arenas =SMASH HIT if done right. Cool thing is you can keep old Arenas for the VERY VERY VERY VERY FEW that don't know better!! AWESOME IDEA!!!!! Thank you!!!
Oct 6th 2008 8:49PM I repeat Arena concept is the worst thing Blizzard has done in long long time!! I dont care if this is for positive arena comments:) Vast majority hate arenas!!! Please don't push them!!
Oct 5th 2008 3:45PM Just want to emphasize that people that enjoy arenas ARE in VAST minority. I have played game since Beta as well.
Oct 5th 2008 3:35PM For me this is a very huge issue, especially when you contrast Wow PVP with Warhammer PVP. My plan for Wrath is to level up 2 or 3 characters to heroic level and quit because of arena being the top level of PVP. I do not enjoy Raiding at all. I find it very cumbersome and boring. Don't get me wrong WOW is the superior game but if you don't raid then everyone should be able to progress their character without doing arenas. Arenas simply are not fun for the masses. That's a fact Blizzard is starting to get and will become more obvious as we move forward. I will also run Heroics and get my character to point they are about the best I can do. Since the PVP option is not there anymore I will just take my $15 dollars a month and go play another game. In my opinion Raiders don't "earn" epics. I would say they are are all "welfare" Epics. The bottom line is game needs to be fun and the majority of players agree with me in WOW. That said I can hardly wait for expansion but go into it knowing the end game in pvp is not THERE! And that is VERY disappointing. We should also be able to level up our characters with pvp as well. Blizzard will come around to this because Arena is an utter failure!!!!!
