With the first Arena season starting this week, we are reducing the cost of Honor gear by 30%.

During the first week of the expansion there were some very profitable ways of earning Honor which have been resolved. With this change, players who are reaching level 80 this week will be able to acquire Deadly, Hateful, and Savage gear a bit more quickly, to prepare for Arena play.

This update is coming via hotfix soon.

Wanted to chime in and call this out as something we have been discussing and agree with. After talking with some folks involved in original Wrath itemization in 2008, it was an acknowledged issue during Tier 7/Season 5 that there was a dearth of good relics available. As a result, we are working on plans to very soon add the Savage and Hateful Gladiator’s Relics, Wands, Thrown Weapons, and Hunter Offhand one-handed weapons to the Savage and Hateful gear vendors.

These items existed in the data in 2008, but were never available to players in-game. Adding the lower power versions of these items patches a notable gap in itemization this season/tier which we think works out quite nicely. Our thinking right now is that Savage and Hateful items in these slots will require a nominal amount of Arena Points as well as Honor. The Savage items will have no rating requirements, and the Hateful items will have a rating requirement of 1200. The Deadly Gladiator’s versions of these items will see no changes and will still require a rating of 1900.

We’ll update everyone on the final costs of these items very soon once we have the hotfix prepped.

Thanks for the feedback around this! :slight_smile:
