Well as many of you probably noticed today the forums were down for a bit. This was an unexpected error resulting from a routine upgrade of our forum software. No data was lost and most everything SHOULD be working as normal now. We are still working on resolving a couple issues.

If you notice anything that seems out of place. Please let us know about it in the Site Feedback section of our forums or by replying to this thread.

On the bright side - the new vBulletin has some pretty cool new features we're going to start playing with!

We apologize for the unexpected downtime. Back to Top

All of the new season 4 gear can be food on the PTR. Here is the list of the new items. I tried to organize it so that you only see the items you care about for your class/spec. If anything is missing for your class, let me know and I will update it.

Hover over any of them to see the item stats.

New Rating Rules:
1) If a character’s personal rating is more than 150 points below the team rating, they will earn points based on their personal rating instead of the team rating. This means that a player cannot join a highly rated team and begin earning points based purely on the pre-established rating of the team before they joined it. They'll need to compete, improve, and gain a personal rating worthy of the points they would receive.

2) If the average personal rating of the players queuing for a game is more than 150 points below the team’s rating, the team will be queued against an opponent matching or similar to the average personal rating. This means that players cannot join a highly rated team and immediately face highly rated opponents, easily and quickly bringing their personal rating up. Instead they'll need to again compete, improve, and earn their rating.

3) UPDATE: If a team does not enter an arena match that is starting they will lose points equal to the amount that would have been deducted if they had played and lost. This change makes it less viable to participate in illegitimate team match-ups by requiring every game be played; not just those that are against a team's desired opponent.

Season 4 Arena Gear:
Shoulders: 2200
Weapon: 2050
Head: 1700
Chest: 1600
Legs: 1550
Gloves: None
Offhand: None

Season 4 Honor Gear:
Boots: 1700
Ring: 1650
Bracers: 1575
Belt: None
Neck: None
Trinket: None

Old Season 3 Arena Gear:
Shoulders: 1950
Weapons: 1800

Reason for the Changes:
The changes to the rating requirements for these items reflect the nature of the items, their power, and the relative difficulty that should be had when attempting to obtain them. These items are comparable to those found in the newest 25 person raid zone, Sunwell Plateau, and should therefore also feel very challenging to obtain.
