PvP Season 13 ends August 27th

You read that headline right -- Tuesday, August 27th, our 13th PvP season will be at its end. For one week after that date, there will be the usual accounting process to see who gets the PvP titles and rewards as both the Arena and Rated Battlegrounds seasons will be in abeyance. Conquest points will be converted to honor if not spent by that time, and any honor points over 4000 will be converted to gold, as has generally been the case during previous end of season weeks.

At present, Season 14 is expected to begin one week after the end of Season 13. If this follows the pattern of previous seasons this expansion, we're on track for patch 5.4 to drop the same day as Season 13's end (Patch 5.2 dropped on March 5th, the same day Season 12 ended) or within that one week period. So this is a really good benchmark for how close we are to patch 5.4 - it won't come before the end of Season 13, but it may come that day.

Keeping in mind that there can always be delays, dates can be moved back, and that no date for patch 5.4 has been announced, it definitely feels like it's getting closer. For the full announcement leap behind the cut with us.

PvP season 13 announced

Over at the World of Warcraft official blog the announcement is finally live - PvP season 13 has begun! Ratings have been reset for both rated battlegrounds and arena teams. If you've been waiting to get back in the other-player-slaughtering-game, your time is nigh. I unfortunately have a laggy internet connection and terrible twitch reflexes, so I will not be joining you all, but good luck to those who participate. May you see your name in lights atop the leaderboards!

For more information about PvP in patch 5.2, check out these further resources from WoW Insider:

Patch 5.2 Gear Previews: Season 13, tier 15, and Throne of Thunder

Patch 52 Gear Previews Season 13, tier 15, and Throne of Thunder
If you've been waiting for some new WoW loot to drool over, today Blizzard posted previews of season 13's "Tyrannical" PvP armor sets. Season 12 will be coming to an end on March 5, making the Tyrannical sets your new PvP goal. Though we have to say, the paladin set looks kind of dangerous, like you might put someone's eye out accidentally with those giant blades attached to your shoulders. (It reminds us of warrior's tier 2 Wrath set, which also seemed like tempting fate. What if you tripped?) So, PvP paladins, please be careful and try not to run with scissors -- or those huge shoulders -- okay?

For PvEers, Blizzard also has previews of tier 15, which will be arriving with patch 5.2 -- that is to say, soon. Thankfully, Blizzard has finally taken the preventive measure of putting bells on the priests so they can no longer sneak up on you. (Apologies to stealth-loving priests everywhere.)

And if that's not enough preview action, our friends at Wowhead also have Throne of Thunder boss drops from the PTR (if you're not seeing them, click to sort "By Boss"). Happy looting, everyone!
