Legion PvP Blue Posts

Official Blizzard Quote:

Skirmishes are now available on Alpha
We've opened up Skirmishes for testing on Alpha. Please keep in mind that Skirmishes have changed in Legion. Healers will only be placed in 3v3 matches while DPS and Tanks may find themselves in either 2v2 or 3v3 matches. Good luck and have fun!

PvP Healing
We definitely agree that healing feels undertuned in PvP right now. We'll do a pass on it.

PvP Queue Times
It's very important to us that we're able to get feedback from this process. As such, it's important you're able to find PvP matches so you can offer feedback. We'll be watching the queue situation closely as the new build comes up.

Ashran in Legion
Wintergrasp, Tol Barad and Ashran were all made during different technological eras of World of Warcraft. Ashran being the most recent, it is far easier for us to convert it to a battleground like instance supporting region wide queues. The work involved with adding that support to Wintergrasp and Tol Barad is equivalent to making them from scratch. Perhaps we will do it one day but currently our efforts are directed else where.

PvP Patch Releasing in Alpha

Official Blizzard Quote:

Hey all,
We have another alpha build going up today, with some exciting updates:
  • New Specialization Unlocked – We have 1 additional specialization ready for testing. We’d love any and all feedback about gameplay, artifact quest line, abilities, etc.
  • Feral Druid
  • Class Status – We’re continuing to iterate on our class abilities and talents, based on testing and feedback. This build has many revisions scattered around the classes, but here are some highlights:
  • Retribution Paladins – More talent revisions have been made, their Mastery has been tweaked, along with a variety of bugfixes to Haste affecting rotational abilities. Conviction has also been turned into a talent.
  • Marksmanship Hunters – A few significant talent changes have occurred.
  • Subtlety Rogues – Many changes to talents and base abilities to adjust rotational speed.
  • Destruction Warlocks – Mastery tweaked.
  • Outlaw Rogues – Roll the Bones has received some additional new changes.
  • Demonology Warlocks – Infernals’ and Doomguards’ damage has been significantly increased (warning: they’re likely *too* strong now, and will be toned back soon).
  • Level 110 PvP Realm – A new alpha realm has opened up, which includes:
  • Level 110 Character Templates: Fully upgraded artifacts and ilvl 810 PvP Gear.
  • No access to Legion outdoor zones except for Dalaran.
  • Full access to the new Honor System at level 110, including PvP talents and prestiging. You’ll be able to earn honor, increase honor level, and unlock PvP talents. No PvP gear will be rewarded yet.
  • Battlegrounds are available for queuing, with the exception of Alterac Valley and Isle of Conquest. Skirmishes, Ashran, Rated Battlegrounds, War Games, and all Arenas are unavailable.
  • Secondary Stats on Level 110 Gear – We've modified how Secondary Stats are itemized on gear at level 110, to get players up to the levels of secondary stats that feel good, earlier on. Full mathy details for the theorycrafters here: http://us.battle.net...pic/20742704730

Thanks, and we look forward to your feedback!

Also, check out the design notes from the previous build, if you haven't already as well: http://us.battle.net...pic/20742774078
