Unless I'm missing something, there are no items a player can buy with arena points that don't require a minimal arena rating - that couldn't be purchased with honor alone anyway.In terms of the current season, this would allow players that do no arena at all to purchase the deadly set pieces slightly faster. This is just an extra bonus for players that do participate in arena, as they pursue gear beyond the deadly pieces that requires both arena points and arena rating.
My Infernal will be seeing even MORE combat now.
Kinda glad I haven't been nerfed but kinda sad I haven't got any buffs. :[(Warrior)
still no shaman tier 10 preview
"All level 71-80 Battleground daily quests will now award 25 Arena points in addition to their current rewards"Nice...finally I can buy me some arena gear! No...wait...I still need ranking to buy...ahh, shucks!
ehhh, why not just reduce deadly prices :O?i suppose it'll reduce the amount of 2v2 teams that arena queue for just points...
Wow..qq much about not changing the stone's requirements before Hallow's End. I foresee the initial benefit for this comes when running low level toons through instances. With the supposed changes to old world instances that will now be available for end game players, this is a must. Thinking also about cataclysm, it seems relevant that in addition to flying anywhere in azeroth, you can also teleport using the stones, I wonder if any crafty goblin guilds will decide to make a service, 5g gets you a summon. But that may yet be a long ways off.
Fingers of Frost: This talent now triggers immediately on casting a spell rather than being delayed until the spell strikes the target. this fixes the frostbolt+frost lance combos hmmm?
