There was a big announcement today on upcoming Battleground changes. However there are two critical pieces of PvP information
that people everywhere, especially twinks, are going to go crazy over.
- You will be able to level through PvP Battlegrounds
- You will be able to turn off experience gains
This means that you'll be able to level your character simply by competing in PvP in battlegrounds
and completing objectives
, such as capturing the flag in WSG or securing resources in AB. Not from killing other players.
This opens up a whole new way of playing the game at the earlier levels, one that will add a significant dynamic to it.
The second major change is the ability to turn off this experience gain in Battlegrounds and the rest of WoW
(at a cost of 10g). This means that twinks are a viable and supported option in WoW
, and lets those players who want to sit in the 30s bracket enjoy it to their heart's content.
Additionally, if you have turned off experience gains, you'll be placed in separate battlegrounds from those that have them turned on. That means that twinks will play against other twinks, and not against those players who are just interested in the bracket from a more casual perspective.
The floodgates of Patch 3.2
are wide open now. Enjoying it?
