Okay… I really didn’t expect my 2nd post on this blog to be reporting the latest news from the “official patch notes” for upcoming Patches but here I am! Excited and throwing words down on to a new post! And I haven’t even finished reading the rest of the official patch notes yet!
What’s the excitement? This:
All level 71-80 Battleground daily quests will now award 25 Arena points in addition to their current rewards.
ARENA POINTS??? Ooo-ooh-ooh!
I really enjoy PVP. I enjoyed PVP since the first AV that I stepped into, rushing North with the rest of them, not understanding any of the strategy of the battleground, only knowing my soul purpose there was to kill the enemy! I wasn’t very good at it. I died. A lot. However, I would head straight back into the fray immediately afterwards. And all that dying paid off! My first “fast” ground mount was a Frostwolf earned from AV marks.
With Wintergrasp, I dabbled into PVP on a more regular basis. I learned what the honour cap was (75,000) and started buying PVP gear in Org. Visiting the PVP gear vendor, got me dreaming of one day having a complete PVP set so I started working on it. Every week, I would do the weekly WG quests and piece by piece, I built my set up. Overtime, I started to see the benefits of the increase resilience from my new gear. I wasn’t dying all the time anymore. I was holding my own. Of course, you can’t buy any PVP weapons with only honor points. For that you need Arena points. Hence why I’m excited! Free Arena Points from my BG quests! Hell ya! Sure it will take a long time to gain enough points (1,400 to be exact! Or 56 BG quests!) but this casual PVPer will take what I can get!
Once I get home, I’ll thow in a picture of Chawa with her current PVP set.
