TBC Classic Phase 2: Overlords of Outland Now Live on the PTR
Blizzard has announced that the upcoming phase 2 of The Burning Crusade Classic is now live on the PTR (public test realm).
Phase 2 will see the release of two raid instances, Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep The Eye, in addition to guild banks, a looking for group tool, and arena season 2.
It's worth noting here that the LFG tool mentioned is not how it works in retail or even in Wrath of the Lich King. In the original TBC release there was a LFG tool more akin to a bulletin board system.
Here are some screenshots of the LFG Tool from the PTR client.
Does anyone know how long a patch usually stays on the PTR? Would like to know what kind of launch date are we looking at
4-6 weeks, but likely it will launch August 31st to combat the New World release date as its also on a Tuesday.
Any confirmation on what's happening to arena points when phase 2 hits?
Arena points go to zero, and the points you had convert to honor. I think it was 10 honor per Arena Point.
Do you keep all the honor points you earned?
No, they will be reset (kinda.....you won't be able to purchase any significantly good pvp gear with honor, arena rating from Season 1 items will be removed, but they do have reduced Arena point costs)
Patch notes say you will have 2 weeks to spend your points after the patch goes live.
Honor will not be reset at the beginning of Season 2. When Season 1 ends, there will be a two-week off-season period. When Season 2 begins, any remaining unspent Arena points will be converted to Honor Points at a rate of: 1 Arena Point = 10 Honor Points.
Does anyone know if T4 tokens will be exchangeable for S1 gear in phase 2?
