PVP in World of Warcraft Has New Leveling System

When Legion comes to the World of Warcraft, players will no longer use Honor and Conquest as PvP currencies. Instead, the entire PvP structure is being revamped with a new leveling system, new PvP talents, and quicker PvP seasons. At max level, players will be able to level their Honor Level by competing in battlegrounds and arenas. Raising the level lets players unlock new talents while earning gold and Artifact weapon power.

Under the new system, players have 50 Honor Levels to earn. As the player’s Honor Level increases, they can unlock new PvP-specific talents like the Wild Protector talent for Beast Mastery Hunters. This talent lets the Hunter’s Dire Beasts protect nearby allies with a 15 percent damage reduction to those within five yards of the pets. Honor talents are only active while a character is engaged in PvP content according to Battle.net, and these talents will function in addition to the player’s PvE talents.

PvP gear in World of Warcraft’s new Honor system will also be different. Gear will not directly affect players in PvP with them instead benefiting from “pre-determined set of stats” based on the player’s class and specialization. A small modifier based on the player’s item level will contribute to the player’s power, however. Instead of a 25 percent difference in power between players whose item level deviates by 25 item levels today, only a 2.5 percent difference will be in effect under the new system. PvP gear still exists, as WoWhead pointed out with the Vindictive PvP gear showing up in the popular database.

Additionally, seasons will be shorter and more frequent in Legion since there is less of a discrepancy between a player in the beginning of the season versus the end. After all, gear will not be an issues, and a player’s personal Honor Level is theirs to maintain as they see fit.

Legion is expected to release during the summer of 2016 with launch ensured “on or before September 21.” The sixth expansion to World of Warcraft can be pre-purchased now, guaranteeing early access to the Demon Hunter as well as immediately unlocking any digital goods included in the purchase. For example, players that purchase the Digital Deluxe edition of Legion will instantly unlock the Illidari Felstalker mount and the battle pet companion, Nibbles. A few other unlocks for other Blizzard games are also part of the Digital Deluxe edition of Legion.  buy cheap wow gold
