Yesterday, Blizzard announced that the 2012 World of Warcraft Arena Pass will be available for sign-up on April 10th. Those players who sign up will have access to special realms with level-85 templates and gear.
With an eye on those interested in the Mists of Pandaria expansion due out later this year, Blizzard is offering those who participate in the Arena Pass access to a level-90 realm with upgraded gear when MoP is released.
We’re pleased to announce that the 2012 World of Warcraft Arena Pass is nearly here. Starting April 10, players will be able to sign up to compete against like-minded individuals in a dedicated Arena sandbox. The Arena Pass service will feature access to the special tournament realms with level-85 character templates and epic gear from Cataclysm.
As an added bonus, we have included an exclusive reward that players can earn by purchasing their Arena Pass and participating in the competition — an Armored Murloc in-game pet. Top players will also contend for a chance to achieve the “Vanquisher” title for their live characters. Players that choose to take part in the 2012 Arena Pass will also receive access to a special level-90 realm with upgraded epic gear after they’ve upgraded their accounts with the upcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion.
Update: Registration is now open!
