“Burning Crusade Arena Season 1 has begun calling forth the finest combatants in all of Outland to converge and compete in three arenas: Ring of Trials in Nagrand, the Circle of Blood in Blade’s Edge Mountains, and the Ruins of Lordaeron above Undercity,” Blizzard said. “Up for grabs are gear, mounts, title rewards, and most importantly — immortal glory.”
If you’re fuzzy on the structure of arenas, they’re no-nonsense brawls between teams of two, three, or five. Players earn arena points for these battles which can then be spent on gear upgrades. Additionally, top-rated players can earn special titles and even mounts at the end of the season (this time around it’s a Swift Nether Drake mount). The studio did not say how long this season will last.
