Arena Season #8 (Patch 3.3.2)


Unfortunately this mount is not a reward from Arena Season 8, but it just seems like such a cool way to lead off the post about Patch 3.3.2 where Arthas is finally going to meet his end. For those not in the know, “Invincible” is the horse of Arthas and is dropped when he is defeated in heroic 25-man mode.

Sticking with the whole Arthas thing, the cinematic of what occurs when he dies has been datamined and is on Youtube. Fair warning, it’s a major spoiler apparently to everyone who has some attachment to the Alliance and/or paladins (doesn’t really mean shit to me), so if you’re into the whole “discover it yourself” you may want to not hit play.

Another change to PvP occurs in this patch in order to offset last week’s hotfix where resilience values were doubled, and that is to permanently reduce healing power by 10%. Certainly you had to notice that trying to kill resto and holy classes was even more impossible than before, right? Ya, if you didn’t you’re not alone, but then again I didn’t queue up any Arenas last week because it was fruitless to do so.

Finally, many of us are geared and anticipating the newest Arena season and are going to be testing our mettle more this session than we ever had in the past. As a brush-up on technique for us and others (up to like 100 hits a day!), here are the current 6 iterations of “The Beginner’s Guide to Arena” hosted at WoW.com.

Hopefully that’s enough material to keep you occupied during the extended maintenance.
