Profession Combat Bonus Update

February 15, 2020, 11:53 pm

Profession combat bonuses have been made more accessible than ever before! You will not need to maximize a profession to use the profession-bound combat benefits. Upon learning the profession, you'll unlock the combat bonuses immediately. The bonuses are available for a small gold cost from the supply vendor nearby, and do not require reagents. This is the only change to professions. All other recipes remain unchanged.

Arena Seasons and Reward changes

February 5, 2020, 07:56 pm

When you win a rated arena match, you'll obtain a Gladiator's Cache, containing gold and many rare cosmetic drops, including mounts. The first season is Wrathful: Season 1. Afterwards, we'll be moving into Gruesome: Season 2, and so on.

In addition, there are titles to be earned from the 2v2 bracket after each season end.

Top team. Title Reward: Deadly Gladiator
Second and third place teams. Title Reward: Gladiator

For the 3v3 bracket, the top teams will receive the following titles based on their placement at the end of the season. With the number one team receiving the seasonal title.

Top team. Title Reward: Wrathful Gladiator
Second and third place teams. Title Reward: Relentless Gladiator
Fourth and Fifth place teams. Title Reward: Gladiator

The 5v5 bracket remains, and with it, includes a first place reward as expected.

Top team. Title Reward: Furious Gladiator
Second and third place teams. Title Reward: Gladiator

In addition to those rewards, you may now be rewarded with Challenger, Rival and Duelist titles as soon as you reach a specific rating within any bracket.

All Gladiator mounts can be purchased from the rated arena vendor. The current season mount will only be available during that specific season, and requires 2200 arena rating within any bracket to purchase. The Deadly, Furious and Relentless Gladiator Frost Wyrms will be available during every season for a specific rating and points cost.

As mentioned above, each season will have a unique mount and title reward available to be earned. An example shown below:

Random Battleground reward changes

February 5, 2020, 07:56 pm

Random battleground rewards have been improved. You can advance through all 14 ranks by defeating the opposite faction in random battlegrounds. When winning a random battleground, you'll be rewarded with a cache that contains gold, and other rare items. Once a rank has been earned, you will never lose it. These ranks can be viewed under the Battlegrounds achievement category in-game.

Reaching Field Marshal or Warlord rank will unlock the full classic-pvp transmogrification armor set. Reaching the next and final rank will unlock the weaponry transmogrification. Note, that it takes half as many victories to reach Field Marshal or Warlord than the final rank. The final push remains a cosmetic reward, should you choose to earn it.

At the end of each season, the victory count will be made public for all players to view and the Battleground Annihilator achievement and title will be rewarded to the top 10 players on each faction. You may also track your own victory count under the battleground section in your statistics. You'll also be able to keep track of your victory count from previous seasons as well.

Players may unlock the ability to purchase Wrathful Gladiator armor from Orgrimmar and Stormwind City when reaching a certain rank.
