Blizzard has announced that Legion PvP Season 1 will occur on Tuesday, December 13th at 6am PST, and Season 2 will begin two hours later at 8am PST.
This is an odd turn of events since in previous seasons there has typically been at least one week between the end of one season and the start of the next. At the same time, this bodes well for the next patch to be released to live realms since the end of the PvP season typically coincides with the release of the next patch.
ome to a close. But the battle will pick up just two hours later at 8 a.m. PST, when Legion PvP Season 2 begins!
Season 1 – End of Season Rewards
If you participated in Season 1, in order to ensure you receive the rewards that you’re due, please keep the following in mind:
- Refrain from transferring your character(s) to another realm or faction until after Legion Season 1 has ended.
- Legion Season 1 titles and mounts will be awarded approximately two weeks after the season ends.
Season 2 Begins
With Legion Season 2, the maximum number of times you can Prestige will increase from 4 to 8. Furthermore, weekly Rated Quest rewards will increase to the following values:
Last Week’s Rating
Base Item Level
|0 – 1399||855||Gladiator|
|1400 – 1599||865||Gladiator|
|1600 – 1799||875||Gladiator|
|1800 – 1999||880||Gladiator|
|2000 – 2199||885||Elite|
|2200 – 2399||890*||Elite|
*Item levels 890 and 900 above will become available when the Nighthold raid opens.
The item level of PvP gear rewards from Skirmish, Battleground, Arena, and Rated Battlegrounds victories will increase with Season 2, but the transmog look will remain the same as Season 1.
Don’t forget—end-of-season rewards are based on your faction nowadays. The top 0.5% of Alliance PvPers will be awarded the Gladiator: Legion Season 1 achievement and mount, and the same will go to the top 0.5% of Horde PvPers. If you transfer your character to the other faction, you must have 50 wins after your transfer to receive the reward.
Now get out there and fight to the finish!
