PvP Overhaul and new Talents - Warcraft: Arclight Rumble patch 0.9.4

Written by Slade

The 0.9.4 update

Another Warcraft: Arclight Rumble Beta update is upon us! Uppdate 0.9.4 brings us a platitude of improvements and we'll try to cover them briefly, but remember, if you want to read the detailed stat updates head to the official Patch notes post

PVP Rework

This update brings us our first ever PvP overhaul. It introduces...

  • PvP Seasons
  • Matchmaking system
  • Recurring seasonal rewards
  • Shifting modifiers to keep the gameplay fresh
Each leader will have what's called an "Honor rating" which will be used to match you against players that you should be going against in PvP. This will hopefully fix the issue of new players getting steamrolled by high level PvP-focused users. Only your top 3 leaders will count for your account honor value.

New leader: Old Murk-Eye

After a long time comin' we finally have our first murloc leader! Old Murk-Eye charges into battle as the third Beast leader! He floods the board with waves of scaly tidehunters to overwhelm his opponents and grant him victory over the depths of the battlefield.

Passive - March of the Murlocs:
For the next 5 seconds after playing Old Murk-Eye, spawn a Murloc Tidehunter at your base for each Gold you spend.

He also comes in with two new talents:

  • Marathon of Murlocs - March of the Murlocs lasts an additional 5 seconds.
  • Tip of the Spear - Murlocs spawn at Old Murk-Eye instead of your base.

New Talents

As a testing feature, some minis will have their 3rd talents introduced early. These include...

  • Carine - Cairne Resurrects once at 30% Health.
  • Tirion - On death, heal one nearby ally to full Health.
  • Harpies - Infectious Swipes - Harpies gain Poison.
  • Smoke bomb - Apply Stealth to enemies as well.
