Newsletter July 4: Run From The PvP!

Post by piwakawaka » July 4th, 2016, 11:02 pm

July 2016
Year 2, Issue 27

Hello, Readers.

There is much to discuss this week. Firstly, and most importantly, in the PvP Dev Q&A it was said that the first reward for the new prestige system is going to be a pet. Unfortunately, there appears to be quite a few interesting rewards through the prestige system, which would mean having to do a lot more PvP than I intended. At the very least, it should be worth getting to the second prestige rank to get the PvP artifact skin.

Of course, if you're like me PvP is a truly terrifying thing. With that said, it sounds like PvP is going to be potentially more casual-friendly, and if that fails, we can always huddle together in a corner making frightened bleats while our wolpertingers casually gambol amidst the carnage. The transcript, along with the full Q&A, can be found on Wowhead, at http://www.wowhead.com/news=253913/legion-pvp-q-a.

On the other hand, I finally got to see the Warcraft movie, and it was brilliant. I am so glad I was able to go and see the movie before it was taken out of our cinema. It's a bit sad it hasn't had a decent run, but it does seem to be suffering a lot from 'oh, a game/fantasy movie.' I will very definitely be buying the Blu-ray. My husband would tell me off for settling for DVD.

Hope you all have a good week, and Happy Independence Day!

Wild Pet Capture Service
Above all else... A3 loves collecting pets! Collection doesn't just stop at pets that can be traded and adopted though - there are a few worlds' worth of wild pets out there waiting for collectors, too! A few of us would like to offer our love of hunting wild pets to A3 members to help them also round out their wild pet needs.

Each week (sometimes a few times each week!) we will comb zones to help members find the wild pets they are still after. We will turn a zone upside-down and inside-out looking for your pet(s) and message you once we've found them. You will then come and capture it!

There are both Horde and Alliance hunters on standby to help with the pet search, so both factions are welcome.

Adoptions
Do you want to help supply pets for adoption that A3 needs? We have a Pet Suppliers thread where members can sign up to sponsor certain pets they are willing to supply. When the supply of certain pets starts to run low or we have an upcoming project where we’ll need more of a certain pet – we’ll send out a notification about that pet to our suppliers! There is no guess work and no 24/7 farming because we’ll let you know when we’re in need of the pets.

There are no quotas to meet when supplying the pets that you signed up for. You can provide whatever amount you are comfortable with.

New supply options were added on March 6th.

For more information about the Pet Supplier project click here.

Perhaps we should try organizing some PvP A3 runs or something. With cross realm invites it might work, or can group finder groups then queue for other things?

I really enjoy PvP. I used to live in BGs and arenas. The key to enjoying it? Good company! Anything that a person might find boring or frustrating is instantly 100x better with a group of smarty-pants accomplices to help pass the time. I could definitely be up for some A3 pvp nights for gits & shiggles & pets. :)

:D

After all, unless they're 100% changing things, we'll slowly get the credit for the pets via losing too. ;)

I'd be in for this. I don't mind losing, I just hate dragging a team down with me. Number 1 reason I hated the Pandaria legendary grind - it forced PvE players into PvP content, to the dismay of both.
