Reminder: New Battleground Blitz Brawl With The Blues on Friday at 3:00 p.m

We’re hosting a PvP Brawl with the Blues event focused on Battleground Blitz on the Guardians of the Dream PTR on Friday, September 15 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm PDT.

To prepare for this test session, make sure you’ve followed the following steps:

  1. Open the App, and select the WoW playscreen.
  2. In the game version drop-down menu, select Public Test Realm (DF 10.2.0) and Install.
  3. The Play button should take you right into the PTR, where you can select any active test realm.
  4. On the character selection screen, select ‘Copy Character’ to test with a copy of one of your characters from live realms.

Once you’ve entered the PTR with your chosen character, use the Group Finder (hotkey: i) to queue up for Brawl: Battleground Blitz on the ‘Player vs. Player’ tab. Then click ‘Join Battle’ to enter the fray!


Lok 'tar ogar !

Always love these kind of events - wish we had something similiar time from time on the live servers :slight_smile:


While you guys are testing, can one of you roll a marks hunter and do the following:

  1. Find another hunter, cast volley when it uses aspect of the turtle and then cleave into it via something close to it with trick shots.
  2. Cast aspect of the turtle yourself and have a rogue player cast blade flurry and hit your pet while pet is in range of you.
  3. Cast aspect of the turtle and have a death knight cast death and decay, then clawing shadows or obliterate a pet or player close to you.
  4. Cast aspect of the turtle and have a warrior with the warbringer talent charge into you.

You will notice that all of these effects bypass aspect of the turtle. You can also replicate them with resto druid tranquility immunity. As a control, have an elemental shaman cast chain lightning into either defensive under the same circumstances as trick shots. Have a warrior cast sweeping strikes under the same circumstances as dnd cleave or blade flurry.

In addition:
Take the wailing arrow talent and cast it at a player using the precognition embellishment. You will notice that wailing arrow will activate this despite the silence effect being disabled in pvp.

I’d also recommend people visit the unique PTR Vendors in Orgrimmar/Stormwind to buy Season 3’s gear so you aren’t competing in Season 2 gear.

also the new crafting items for pvp are still missing from the vendors.

Hello Kaivax!

I made another thread about this, but can the conquest trophies be updated to the new 489 items on the vendor? The vendor still has the 450 ones. Also the gem settings do no work on the new PvP neckpiece on the vendor, it says it’s to low of an item to use on it. Be awesome to have this stuff to use before the play with the blues today! Thanks!

The set gear doesnt scale up to 489 either it seems, though I’d be just as happy if set bonuses were disabled in PvP.

It doesn’t make sense to either balance classes around set bonuses, or just have some spec bonuses that are OP and others that suck.

I feel like the objectives could each always be showing, so you can see the status of each at all times. Captured (with a countdown until it is capturable again), Neutral, and Capped (with a count down until captured).

EDIT: Playing without addons made me realize how much information is hidden by default. I can’t imagine anyone understanding what is happening in PVP without them.

hope this is the start to a regular cadence of Pvp & BG content to come!
