We have five more beta keys to giveaway. We are also very close to releasing an update to our talent pages. Currently, the way to create and maintain them is very cumbersome and that has allowed them to get out of date. Our new method should be much easier to read and much easier to submit. This should allow us to have a much larger and up to date list of pvp talent builds.

We do need to start filling it with data before we take it live. This is where the beta keys come in. We are asking everyone to submit data to help us fill out our database. Here is what we need:

1) A link to a talent build and a description telling us as much as you can about why the build is good. Preferably, use the WoW.com talent calculator (http://www.worldofwa...s/talent-index/) but that is not required.
2) A detailed description of an individual talent, good or bad. It doesn't need to be long, but please express it as clearly as possible. The goal is to let people know why a talent is or isn't useful.

Here is how the giveaway will work. We will draw them randomly based on your submissions. Please put all submissions here:
http://www.arenajunk...isplay.php?f=68

1) Each build + description that we end up using will get 40 tickets.
2) Each talent description that we end up using  will get 1 tickets.

There is no limit on how many times you submit. Thanks for helping us put it together. We will run the competition for about a week. There will be no set time line on this competition, but we will give a two day warning to get your final submissions in. We would like to launch the new talent section as soon as possible, and once we will feel like we have enough, we will give the two day warning.

UPDATE: The competition is now set to end Friday, September 26th at 5 PM EST.

UPDATE: Winners were randomly drawn. Thanks everyone for submitting to help get this new feature launched.

Do you want current talent builds, projected 3.0 or WotLK build?

Current talent builds. We will do the 3.0 and WotLK builds at a later date once everyone has had a chance to test them fully in arena. This should help us be ready for the change in the future though.

let me know what you think. Too long? Too short? Any feedback would be appreciated.
Is that the way you want it Tyveris? Or more like:
-talent build, link
-for each talent build, description of all talents
?

Yeah that looks good. We might combine some of the descriptions or elaborate were necessary, but you got the general idea correct.

If we want to submit, but don't want to enter the contest (have a key), how would we go about that?  Just say something at the top of the post?

WotLK ones are changing constantly and most people haven't played with them in high end arena. Also, most individual talent reviews should still be worthwhile.

Going to add mine once the next build is posted, as they're in the process of applying on right now :3

I just don't see why you'd give beta keys worth like $150 for talent specs+blurbs which will soon be obsolete.

The Beta keys will be obsolete just as quickly. Its how we are choosing to jump start the new talents section. After we have gotten a foundation of information to launch with we can easily incorporate new description and build as the game develops.

As Tyv said - lots of the individual talent descriptions will remain relevant after WotLK.

Still looking for a few more classes / specs to be covered before we put a definitive time on this. Thanks so far for the ones submitted, hoping to wrap this up this week.

Last call. You have until 5 PM EST Friday to get your submissions in. At that point, we will draw the winners so that they can have the weekend to start playing beta.

Thanks to all the submissions so far!

What classes do we still need? I think I know enough about them that I could do some of it.

It is pretty well covered, just wanted to give people a final opportunity to submit in case they were working on one.
