Eredar Twins encounter: Reverse kill order grants 1 extra epic item + 4 sunmotes
Tournament Realms statistics
Last Monday, World of Raids published Vhairi's interesting data about Arena class representation, this time Vhairi scanned results for both US tournament realms, but due to the armory restrictions we are limited to the top 5000 in each bracket.
As expected due to the small sample size (a maximum of 5k teams per bracket) the data is more spiky than on live, and I have shown the top ratings even though there may only be one team at that rating (e.g. @2.2k+ in 3v3.)

Oceanic Free Character Moves & New Realm
We will be offering free character moves from selected high population realms to lower populated realms, assisting in population dispersal. The ability to move a character on the selected source realms will become available on Monday, April 21 at 12:00PM PDT, and are scheduled to run until Monday, April 28 at 12:00PM PDT.
The destination for this round of transfers is to a new Oceanic PvP realm, Dreadmaul, to provide additional options and growth for the Oceanic community.
In the event that any of these realms meets our transfer goals before the scheduled end date, the transfers pertaining to that realm will be disabled. We highly recommend that if you are planning to transfer that you do so at your earliest convenience. No characters will be eligible for these free moves once the transfers have been closed.
Once the transfers open you can begin your transfer by visiting the Character Move page located here: https://www.worldofwarcraft.com/accou.../character-move.html
The realms chosen consist of source realms with the highest sustained queues, and destination realms with the lowest population. The numbers gathered are directly from our data, and depict the realms in most need of these transfers. We will be continuing to monitor all realms and open additional free transfers in the future where necessary.
- Source B (PvP): Barthilas, Frostmourne, Jubei'Thos, Thaurissan
- Destination B (PvP): Dreadmaul*
- Dreadmaul is a new Oceanic PvP realm that will be in the Bloodlust Battlegroup. Character creation for this realm will be turned off for the duration of the transfers. The Ahn’Qiraj gates will already be open too.
10 man raid dungeons in Wrath of the Lich King
We do plan to continue making 10 person raid dungeons, we just aren't quite ready to share information on dungeons that will use this raid size.
What about sexy/cool looking armor sets in WotLK?
I will say that the armor sets in Wrath of the Lich King are looking awesome. People will always differ in opinions on what "looks cool" but there were many awesome designs in The Burning Crusade and the original World of Warcraft and we plan to continue developing as many new and exciting sets as we possibly can.
Collector's Edition of Wrath of the Lich King
When and if the time comes to announce a Collector's Edition of Wrath of the Lich King, we'll have information posted all over the place, but we have no details to share at this time.
Practice on an NPC with your character?
Generally speaking the mechanics and actions of a fight against an NPC is pretty different compared to PvP fighting. The skirmish Arena modes are available for you to get practice in and get used to all of the options your character has available. That said we will consider this for the future but I can't make any guarantees on it.
