We got word from Nethera and it looks like the two new arenas, Dalaran Sewers and the Ring of Valor, are officially in the Skirmish Arena rotation. So, if you're curious, go give them a whirl.

Official Blizzard Quote:

With the latest patch release, we’ve added two new arenas: the Dalaran Sewers and the Ring of Valor in Orgrimmar. These arenas offer new obstacles and challenges for strategy savvy players. The arenas have been added to the random rotation and are accessible via the queue system as Skirmishes. For more information on these two new arenas, please visit http://www.worldofwa...er/11/arena.xml . Both Dalaran Sewers and the Ring of Valor will also be available for tournament play during Arena Season 5.

Been trying them out all morning.  I don't mind Dalaran Sewers, but the Ring of Valor one I hate.  

It takes like extra 10-15 seconds for the game to start because you have to ride the elevator and then you can see your opponents instantly combined with being right next to them.

I like the Ring of Valor one, although there's a bug where if someone gets AoE feared into the pylons as they're moving at all they'll sink into a pit of nothingness, then he can stand on one of the chains as it goes up and travel underground throughout the entire map like a rat.

No I'm not joking I had a match last 2 hours like this; oh also works if you die-get rezed and accept the rez as the elevator is moving up

Ring of Valor is pretty gay imo.

The boxes in Dalaran are super annoying, since parts of them are out of LOS and parts are in LOS.

Yeah I think we can all agree: ring of valor sucks. From the opening (right next to each other is plain dumb when all 4 others aren't) to the basic map layout.

Funny shit today in ring of valor.
Me + ret pala friend vs disc priest + BM hunter.
fight goes like this: priest starts mana burning, i start mana burning back.
BM hunter goes berzerk on me raping my ass, i have to heal. i keep getting mana burnt, i'm running around like a headless chicken to look for a damn popping random pillar. i get to 0% mana, fiend, shield. fuck. ok ret took shield off, fiend dies, im at 30% mana, i get mana burnt to death.

Dalaran is the most poorly designed Arena ever. The day I'm frost in that Arena is the day I slit my wrists.
