I know many of you are as excited as we are for the new Armored Murloc pet (and probably just as anxious about having to participate in 200 matches in the Arena Tournament). Some of you have expressed concern about joining the tournament due to a lack of arena experience. Well, let me be the first to admit that I am terrible at PvP, but I'm not going to let that stop me, and neither should you!
WarcraftPets' Community Comments and messaging system provide a great way to find murloc-hungry teammates for the tournament. We recommend that you edit your own comment and list what kind of partners you're seeking (i.e. whether you're only interested in the pet or wanting to seriously compete too) and what times you're available to play. You may need to update your comment every few days to make sure it stays visible (but please do not update more often than once per day - spamming is frowned upon). Good luck, and we'll see you on the battlefield!
Here is some helpful information to clarify some misconceptions.
- The tournament will take place on separate tournament realms, independent of the realm you play on.
- You will be creating a new level 80 character (or up to 3 different characters) on the tournament realm, with plenty of gold to buy your armor, enchants, gems, glyphs, etc.
- You must complete 200 games on a single character and on the same team to receive the murloc pet (which should not be confused with the team needing to complete 200 games to qualify for the next round of the tournament).
- To earn the murloc pet, the 200 games must be completed during the last four weeks of the qualification period, after team ratings are reset to 1,500 on or about March 10th (the prior two weeks of practice starting Feb. 24th do not count).
