Pet Battles are PvP! Pet battles will now be featured by ArenaJunkies and we are looking for guides, videos and the AJ Pet Battle Invitational will soon be hosted. Our marketing team determined that there is much larger viewer base available for pet battles than for arena battles. Based on this we also decided to have a 18000$ price pool for the first tournament. The rules will be double elimination and we will have qualifiers on selected US & EU PvP realms. You will have to choose a comp of three pets prior to the tournament and are not allowed to change them. We got the confirmation that Brian Holinka himself will be co-commentating the final round. Lovely to see such a support by Blizzard!
2.) Junkie status change
In the past many players bought Junkie access over boosts and similar shady things. We decided it is not determinable by us who might or might not be a real junkies. So we decided to replace the Junkie requirement with the Brutally Dedicated achievement and give access to everyone with that achievement. We think 300 won arena matches prove someone knows what he is talking about and can be a viable member of this site.
Note: This feature will be implemented soon along with an update of the forum software.
3.) Female gamer support
We noticed that comments about female streamers were often not as respectful as they could have been. We decided to counter this by featuring streams of female gamers more prominently in the future. We also consider doing "Girl of the month" vote on female streamers in the tradition of World of Ming. If you want your stream featured please send Hildegard a private message and add some screenshots of your stream.
4.) Suggestions needed!
We are sill looking for your suggestions to make ArenaJunkies better. Just reply to this thread and let us know what you think about the latest changes

I've played on ptr rather extensively, and at the moment, resto druids are absolutely crippled by monks due to ring of peace preventing almost all abilities,including shifting. Outside of that however, the class is looking quite good. I feel that people haven't really explored the power of mushrooms either. Fully stacked from rejuv, which takes no more than a minute, is around a 600k heal.
I don't understand why Ring of Peace behaves like this. The tooltip reads "silence and disarm" which is fine, but preventing all escape mechanisms, cc's, and defensive cooldowns is absolutely stupid.
PS pvp power also buffs your dps on assist, which is clutch for druids due to current state of heart of the wild.
Theres no reason to pick pvp power over int just because of the current state of heart of the wild, its going to get nerfed soon and 90% of the time ur healing anyways and using heart of the wild in 3s is limited to the comps ur running aswell
If you want maximum healing output without sacrificing spirit, gem your hands & belt with 80 int & 160 pvp power and your shoulders with 80 intellect & 160 mastery to gain the intellect bonus and in every other slot you gem 160 int. Reforge ur haste to mastery if your play with the blooming glyph
