PvP Improvements and Bonus Event

Dear players,

we hope you are enjoying the realm of Athena with all its glory and multitudes of features. We have some more exciting news for you today!

PvP Improvements

In an effort to encourage more PvP action, we have lowered the player count requirements for all battlegrounds, specifically:

  • Rated Battlegrounds start with 7v7 at minimum instead of 10v10.
  • Warsong Gulch has a minimum of 5 players per team.
  • Arathi Basin, Eye of the Storm, and Strand of the Ancients have a minimum of 7 players per team.

Alongside this, we’ve set a higher priority for 10v10 and 15v15 battlegrounds compared to the larger ones (Alterac Valley, Isle of Conquest).

We would also like to inform you about a change in our 3v3 event schedule. The 3v3 Arena Event will now occur every Saturday & Tuesday from 7 PM to 11 PM server time, to avoid any clash with the launch of raids on November 29th and subsequent raid resets.

Weekend Bonus Event

To accommodate players in Eastern time zones, we are happy to announce that the Weekend Bonus Event‘s schedule has been adjusted to start 8 hours earlier, from Friday 12 PM server time! As a result, it has been activated as of now, with the full set of bonuses! This includes:

  • Double XP (i.e. 6× with .mod xp 3 )
  • Double Justice/Honor Points
  • Double Valor/Conquest Points
  • Double Reputation

We hope these updates are to your liking and will offer you an enjoyable gaming experience. As always, your satisfaction is our ultimate goal and we will continue to bring improvements.

Have fun!

Athena Team
