More progress is being made on the PTR. Blizzard has announced the rewards that will be adjusted in phase 2. For PvP, Outland faction pvp gear will be unlocked, requiring revered reputation to obtain. This reputation requirement will be lowered during the Sunwell Plateau patch, in the same way it was during original TBC. Season 2 will not bring about an honor reset, but there will be a 2 week off period at which point arena points will be converted to honor points (1:10 ratio).
With raid rewards we will be seeing more tier tokens. All 25 man bosses will now drop two Tier 4 tokens each rather than one. This will also be the case for the bosses that drop the Tier 5 tokens. Given the speed of phases as well as the slowness of acquiring tier gear this will be a helpful adjustment. Personally this is the first phase yet where I’ve been worried about even getting full tier before the patch and there’s only 5 pieces to get!
We will keep you up-to-date with any other PTR news.
Outland factions’ PvP gear now unlocks with Phase 2 and requires Revered reputation to purchase.
- These are items sold in Thrallmar, Honor Hold, Cenarion Expedition, The Sha’tar, Lower City, and the Keepers of Time.
- The reputation requirement will be adjusted to Honored when Sunwell Plateau is released, to match the original Burning Crusade patch 2.4.
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.
- High King Maulgar, Gruul the Dragonkiller, and Magtheridon will drop two Tier 4 tokens each when Serpentshrine Cavern and The Eye are released.
- Leothoras the Blind, Fathom-Lord Karathress, Lady Vashj, Void Reaver, and Kael’thas Sunstrider will drop 2 Tier 5 tokens each.
