Hello Angrathar Community,
many players send me messages every day and ask about various things related to the new PvE and PvP seasons. Everything should be perfectly clarified and thus I decided to write this topic. I hope that you'll find here answers for all your questions.
Firstly, Deadly Gladiator Seasons ends on 21st May at 23:59 Realm Time. After this time we'll make a copy of PvP rankings and will analyze results of the teams in terms of rules.
These rules are strict and we aware of it:
1. In order to be able to receive a reward, the difference between the player and his teammate cannot be higher than 50. Teams with one member won't be considered to end season rewards.
2. In order for a team to be awarded, it needs at least 30 played arenas in the last arena week before the season's last arena point flush.
We've set such rules, because we wanted to avoid abusing of PvP. In this week we'll analyze all results and we'll make a changes in rules if needed - don't worry no one will be harmed
The final results should be published on Sunday at the latest. From this Tuesday you can obviously join arenas, but remember that all the results as well as arena points will be reset on Saturday.
Okay, let's talk about what will be removed when it comes to PvP.
https://db.darkwizard.pl/?currency=103 will be removed;
https://db.darkwizard.pl/?currency=104 will be removed;
https://db.darkwizard.pl/?currency=161 will be removed;
https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=44115 and https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=45706 will be removed;
https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=43589 won't be removed;
All of the stuff mentioned above will be removed on Saturday at 9:30 Realm Time - CET.
So, Furious Gladiator Season officially starts after the Saturday's morning restart. You will be able to collect honor points and exchange them to Furious Gladiator items - all the NPCs will be added after the restart as well. The first arena flush of Furious Season will take place on Sunday - 27th May at 23:00.

First and foremost, Ulduar will be released on 26th May at 19:00 Realm Time - this is the official date of beginning the new PvE content. However, Emblem of Conquest NPCs will be added after the morning restart on Saturday - we don't want to restart realm at 19:00 because of the expected amount of players.
As we mentioned before - none of your emblems will be removed; emblems won't be converted. Yesterday players asked me about the emblems' progression, here you go:
https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=44175 will be unobtainable from Friday - 25th May, but https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=44164 will be obtainable during whole Ulduar's season.
The Obsidian Sanctum and The Eye of Eternity will be reverted to their blizzlike versions, however Naxxramas 25 will be kept in its current form.
https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=45862, https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=45879, https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=45880, https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=45881, https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=45882, https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=45883, https://db.darkwizard.pl/?item=45987 will be obtainable after the morning restart on Saturday.
https://db.darkwizard.pl/?npc=33993 will be added on the next Friday - 1st June because of changing of IDs reset schedule:
Quests: https://db.darkwizard.pl/?quest=13627 and https://db.darkwizard.pl/?quest=13681 will be released after the Saturday's morning restart.
Improved https://db.darkwizard.pl/?achievement=1008 jewellery will be added after the Saturday's morning restart.
On behalf of myself, @Graal and the rest of the team I would like to thank all the players who were involved in testing Ulduar. Thanks to your work we were able to improve quality of this raid and make much needed corrections. Most of the values that were presented in our description videos will be kept:
Angrathar: Ulduar Pre-Nerf, 1st part - The Siege of Ulduar! - https://youtu.be/fpM42SBDp84
Angrathar: Ulduar Pre-Nerf, 2nd part - The Antechamber of Ulduar! - https://youtu.be/Bh323wBuOz8
Angrathar: Ulduar Pre-Nerf, 3rd part - Keepers of Ulduar! - https://youtu.be/-t3JwIbkH94
Angrathar: Ulduar Pre-Nerf 4th part! The Descent into Madness and Celestial Planetarium! - https://youtu.be/eKW3oFPL4U0
However some changes were made: for instance General Vezax got a little nerf. Anyway, we modified DBM and the current version contains proper values and timers, so just download it and be sure that nothing will surprise you! CLICK: DBM.rar
Once again we'd like to thank the following guilds: Logic, playing ironically, idk, Titan, Synesthesia, Stupidity, OATH, Last Hope, P A R A D I G M, Dreamstate, Epidemic, Risen, The Office, Group Therapy and Simple. You're great!
We have almost finished the system that will let you turn the visibility of transmogs off. Today the final tests will be made. We don't know exactly when transmogs will be released - we'll inform you. All details will be released soon.
I hope that the information presented above will help you better prepare for the release of new content on Sunwell. The first stage of WotLK adventure is almost finished and we hope that you've been having a blast. I personally think that Ulduar is definitely the most interesting raid of the whole Wrath of the Lich King expansion, thus we've made a lot of effort to provide you the best quality possible.
Watch once again our Ulduar trailer and be ready for the new formidable challenges!
