PvP Season 15 Begins
2014/02/25 at 12:39 PM
PvP Season 15 begins today--we've got a full preview of
Season 15 in our Patch 5.4.7 Guide
, including vendors, transmog models, and costs!
Blizzard has covered some of the major season changes below, but one additional change is how equipping two PvP trinkets (
) now increases resilience by 5280, up from 2600.
With weapons at the ready and armor secured, it’s time to kick off PvP Season 15! The playing field is even once more, and this is your chance to prove that true grit and steely determination are what it takes to become a champion. So grab your most trusted companions and teach your enemies the true definition of fear!
Before you set foot in an Arena or on a Battleground, keep in mind we’ve made a few changes this season:
Conquest gear is now Item Level 550
The Dampening debuff will be applied in 2v2 matches 5 minutes after the start of an Arena match, and games will reach a draw at 20 minutes. Dampening decreases the effectiveness of healing spells by 1% every 10 seconds.
Base Resilience is now 77% (up from 72%).
Patch 5.4.7 and Season 15 PvP Guide
2014/02/18 at 1:29 PM
Patch 5.4.7 is scheduled to go live today on Tuesday, February 18th and this mini-guide covers all the patch changes and additions.
This is mainly a PvP patch with the start of Season 15. There are also some tweaks to Timeless Isle weapons and better loot from the Celestials. There is also a bug where all Recruit-a-Friend and Scroll-of-Resurrection mounts aren't showing up for players in-game, but that should be fixed
next realm restart
Also, earlier today we covered how
Level 90 boosts were visible in the in-game store and cost $60
, but after more server maintenance, that has been removed. No level 90 boosting today!
Celestials and Gear Changes
The four celestials on the
now drop ilvl 550 Season 15 PvP gear instead of ilvl 522 Season 14 PvP gear. These items are fairly good for new alts or players that don't raid Normal
Siege of Orgrimmar

PvP Season 14 Ending Soon
2014/02/04 at 7:55 PM
Blizzard just published a blog on the upcoming end of PvP Season 14--which could end in as little as two weeks. Past end-of-season announcements have been tied to
new major patches
, so it's reasonable to speculate that Season 14's end will be close to Patch 5.4.7's launch.
Season 15 will begin approximately a week after the end of Season 14.
As for Season 15 Prideful PvP gear, it's ilvl 550 and shares models with Season 14 PvP gear. However, the colors are swapped between factions so there's no faction-exclusive colors anymore.
For example, if you want to get the
iconic blue priest set with white Tyrael wings
, you can either spend
in Season 15 as Alliance for ilvl 522 Grievous Gear, or
in Season 15 as Horde for ilvl 550 Prideful Gear.
If you want the
black/red version instead
, in Season 15 it will cost
for the Horde's ilvl 522 pieces and
for the Alliance's ilvl 550 pieces.

PvP Season 15 Announced for Mists of Pandaria
2014/01/08 at 11:13 AM
PvP Designer Brian Holinka tweeted that
MoP is getting an additional arena season
, which has led to some speculation on Warlords of Draenor's launch date.
BlizzCon fansite panel
, it was stated that no Patch 5.5 was planned, so if you don't love PvP, you could be in for a long stretch of no new content in Mists of Pandaria. This is a striking change from the very fast patches at the start of MoP and more in line with the long pre-expansion wait during Dragon Soul.
However, Blizzard could have some surprises in store like a mini-raid like Ruby Sanctum or quality-of-life patch like
with cross-realm mail and Flex raids.
Right now, we're several months into Season 14 and past PvP seasons have all
been over 20 weeks long
. Assuming Season 14 and Season 15 are on the short side, which is very optimistic, that
