I'm with you Snap. Some of the alliance ones are just wrong...Exodar...shudder.

Now if they would just add the ability to not have to be in an instance for those of us who have little/no luck getting groups...

Zarhym explains the new world event called the "Argent Tournament" which will include dailies and a new currency called Champion's Seals which will be used to buy things like mounts, weapons, talbards etc.

In patch 3.1, a new world event titled “The Argent Tournament” will be coming to Northrend! This tournament will be live on the 3.1 PTR and open for testing, though certain aspects are still in development. Players will find a host of new features here, including:


* The ability to prove your worth to a capital city of your choosing through our new mounted combat system (still in development)
* New daily quests to construct the great Argent Crusade coliseum for glorious battles to come
* All new rewards - new items, titles, banners, tabards, pets, mounts, and more
* All new achievements
* Many more festivities, and more to come in future content updates!


Players will find the Argent Tournament in Icecrown. Speaking to any Northrend flight master will get you on track to prove your worth to the Argent Crusade, your faction’s leaders, and all denizens of Azeroth!



They [the new items that is] all require a new currency: Champion's Seals

* Tabard - 50 Seals
* Faction Banner - 15 Seals
* Faction Mount - 100 Seals
* Faction Pet - 40 Seals
* Argent Hippogryph - 250 Seals
* Epic Weapons - 25 Seals
* Rare Armor / Neck / Trinkets - 10 Seals

Hmmn, I'm not exactly sure the tabard will give you rep now, maybe it just gives you a special on use proc or equipped proc, I'm not sure. We'll see as more information comes in ;)

Aside from a slew of Priest nerfs (and they wonder why preists aren't happy), did any of the casters see this:

* Thunderstomp (Gorilla) has been removed as a pet skill and replaced by Pummel - Pummel the target, interrupting spellcasting and preventing any spell in that school from being cast for 4 sec. (20 Focus, 5 yd range, Instant, 10 sec cooldown)


So let me see if I can guess how this 1v1 fight will go...

So I will get silenced for 4 seconds every 10 seconds thus leaving 6 seconds (max) to cast. Now the hunter then mixes in his silencing and scatter shots for good measure. So I may or may not get to cast a spell for first 15 - 30 seconds of the fight depending on how skilled the hunter is. Who here wants to let a hunter beat on you for 15 - 30 seconds while you just stand there b/c you can't do anything?

That sounds like fun!!!

...and they wonder why priests just don't PvP anymore...

Eyonix talks about the change from 1 hour to 30 minutes for hearthstone cooldowns



You know, there was a time before "ghetto hearthing" was possible and you had to rely on your hearthstone cooldown, or a mage port. I know it's crazy to even try and imagine such harsh living conditions.

I will tell you what, guys. I'll bring this up with the designers. Though the hearthstone is reasonable, since many of you have become used to "ghetto hearth" style travel, it may be deemed an appropriate change.

I can make no promises.

Update: Alright, all -- we're going to make the cooldown on hearthstones 30 minutes when 3.1.0 releases. Enjoy your sweet victory.

Thanks to those who provided feedback constructively.

Kind of testy, Eyonix is :B

Honestly, I've managed to never need to ghetto hearth anywhere in the 4+ years I've played WoW. It's really not that difficult. Not that I don't appreciate the change, because I do. As for Eyonix, he's an edgy little man, but occasionally he does well for the community at large.
