Patch 2.4 - PvP Additions

Monday, February 11, 2008

It doesn't look like patch 2.4 will change much about class (im)balance, but there are some interesting changes so far. Looks like we'll be doing the same thing again: farm reputation, Badges of Justice, and honor.
Here's what awaits those of us on the frontlines.

New PvP cloaks, this time with spell haste:


Battlemaster's Alacrity is a new BM trinket, again with spell haste:



This head enchant might be useful for those with poor PvP gear and lack of stamina and resilience:


New battleground repeatable quest (you can complete this as many times you want per day, but you'll get the gold only once):
