Want to crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentation of their women? Blood Sport investigates the entirety of all things arena for gladiators and challengers alike. C. Christian Moore, multiple rank 1 gladiator, examines the latest arena strategy, trends, compositions and more in WoW.com's arena column.
Listening Music: On the Apple HQ Rooftop -- The Beatles last live performance.
Last Week: Dawn Moore (no relation) was kind enough to take the column over and discuss the merits of PvE gear in arena. She did an awesome job, and I think you'd all be doing yourself a disservice to not go back and read her work.
Dawn charged me to find a term for people who arena. Many of you suggested gladiator in the comments section. Shame on you. Gladiator is a title reserved for the best arena players. I'm going to pitch the suggestion of Face-Smashing Blood Hungerer. FSBHer for short. I guess Arenaist would be sufficient too.
This Week: Fun things to do in arena! What more needs to be said?

All my gear is going to be obsolete soon! Noooo!
Oh well. I've started trying to have a lot of fun in arena lately. My friends and I have been trying to figure out ways to have the most possible fun in season eight. Here are a few of our suggestions for spicing up your "special arena time."
Play a ridiculous spec.
