Conspicuously absent from the 3.0 announcement was a single drop of PvP content or news. Can we expect something?

Not announced, but I would hazard a guess that there will be something new for 3.0. At the very least a new gear grind.

Keep in mind that pvp has gotten stuff in the past year, this is the first new operation in over a year. They should be focusing on it.

No new "content" announced.

However, "new challenges" await PvPers when broken specs inevitably arise from the disciplines change, leading to OP FOTM classes that will not be balanced for at least 5-6 patches.

This is what is known as "Nightmare Mode PvP".

Hey Jaiyne,

Good question, let me take a stab at this one. If you are asking specifically for news about new content, such as a Warzone or Arena map, then the answers is unfortunately no. There are no new maps, specific to PvP coming in the expansion.

However, if you are asking about changes coming to PvP then the answer is a resounding yes. Disciplines by itself will entirely change the landscape of Classes in PvP in 3.0 and shortly after 3.0 we will begin Season 4 of ranked play. In addition, there are a host of other global combat changes which will be coming as a part of 3.0 which will directly impact PvP. As just one example we are changing how set bonuses work! We will have more details on that, and all of the other global combat changes in a future livestream. So while there is no new specific PvP content in 3.0 there are many system updates and changes that affect every second of PvP coming!

As a reminder, we will be streaming tomorrow to showcase Disciplines. Then at some point in the coming weeks, we will do a secondary stream talking all about those global combat changes we referenced above.

Hope that answers the question!

Disappointing, but not unexpected. Good to see balancing getting a major overhaul though.

No Open World PvP... Incredible Disciplines "are for PvP balance" but no PvP content?

So what your saying is No pvp work was done, and your going to try and sell your dumbed down talent tree as a pvp change. You clearly do not understand your player base.
