Well, I quit WoW wqell before TBC came out, and before Arena.
I recently started again, rolled a huntard (I say huntard, cos that's what I am right now, still learning the class pvp wise, though I seem to have got the pve side down :D ) and I'd like a little info about arena stuff. How does one go about getting in an arena team, bearing in mind I have pretty bad gear, and will probably be still mostly in greens when I hit 70 :p
Is it possible to 'queue' for arena like in BG's and get put in a random team or what?
Sorry for the n00bish questions but like I said, arena wasn't around when I played before, and the rewards look pretty nice and as I hate raiding with a passion, it'd be a nice way to get purples without having to raid...especially as I prefer pvp anyway :D
There's 2 kind of arenas.
Ranked arenas: The serious bussiness. You join a team and fight ( at least 10 games per week ) to climb into the high ratings. Only that kind offers arena points ( wich you use to buy Season 2 and Season 3 equipment ).
"Training arenas" ( Not the exact term ): Here, you can party with a friend or queue for a ramdom partner. Those matches are not ranked and gives any rewards at all ( except the fun you get by playing, of course ).
I find any mention of the words 'serious business' in relation to games amusing. I play games for fun, no other reason. Of course getting better 'phat lewt' is always fun too, so I guess I'll try and get some team for arena and die repeatedly until I get the hang of what I am doing (but getting points even when dying I guess..).
You're safe from my n00bness for a little while, won't hit 70 for another couple of days :)
Thanks for the info.
I have 2 kinds of fun in WoW.
Crazy fun like bombing myself in an alliance town and see what happens. It's like playing with water guns. Crazy fun.
And more activities I take more seriously, like arenas. I took time to get better gear and improve my pvp skills before even set a foot in a ranked arena match. Like a game of chess, you can have a lot of fun with it but I tend te be serious when doing those kind of activities.
