With the World of Warcraft (WoW) Dragonflight Season 1's launch comes the Vault of the Incarnates raid, the Mythic+ Dungeon rotation, and, of course, Player vs. Player (PvP). This article focuses on the latter, detailing the WoW Dragonflight Season 1 PvP content.
We discuss the WoW Dragonflight PvP rewards (including their iLvls), the new Arena map, the weekly Arena map pool rotation, Conquest Caps, and more, so let's get started.
Update on 14 April 2023: We've updated this article with the latest on WoW Dragonflight Season 1 PvP, from the speculated end date to rewards and more.
WoW Dragonflight Season 1 PvP End Date Speculation
We believe the Season 1 end date window is between late April and mid-May 2023.
At the time of writing, Blizzard has not confirmed the exact Season 1 end date, so PvP players should probably not waste any time starting their journey, as getting to Gladiator rank is going to be a rough one.
PvP Rewards & iLvls in WoW Dragonflight Season 1
In your quest for glory in Arenas and Battlegrounds, players will earn Honor and Conquest to use on a variety of items. There are different item types, from Crafted PvP Gear to Conquest PvP Gear (Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds) and, of course, Honor PvP Gear. Check out the PvP item level (iLvl) of the gear types below.
- Crafted PvP gear is Crimson Combatant and has a PvP item level of 398
- Honor PvP gear Crimson Aspirant and has a PvP item level of 411
- Conquest PvP gear is Crimson Gladiator and has a PvP item level of 424
So what are the biggest rewards (apart from the gear you can purchase) for being one of the best PvP players in WoW Dragonflight Season 1? Check out the main rewards below.
- Title: Crimson Gladiator
- Mount: Crimson Gladiator’s Drake
- Dragonriding Appearance: Highland Drake: Embodiment of the Crimson Gladiator
- New Vicious mounts - Alliance and Horde-themed Sabertooth
- New Weapon Illusion
- New Tabard and Cloak
- New Pennant to attach to your back!
It is important to note that the Pennant, Cloak, Tabard, and Weapon Illusion will be available in a future content update before the end of WoW Dragonflight Season 1.
Rated Solo Shuffle PvP in World of Warcraft
Players will be able to participate in Rated Solo Shuffle Arenas during WoW Dragonflight Season 1. They can earn seasonal rewards and achievements. Blizzard explains:
Just like in Rated Battlegrounds and Arenas, Rated Solo Shuffle players can earn seasonal rewards and achievements, credit towards Vicious mounts, weekly Great Vault progress, and Conquest with rewards being based on the highest rating amongst all of a player’s specializations.
While players can earn all seasonal titles and achievements as they do in Rated Arenas, there is one exception; Gladiator and its associated reward. Instead, the top 0.1% of Rated Solo Shuffle players will get the title "Crimson Soloist" at the end of WoW Dragonflight Season 1.
What is the Conquest Cap in WoW Dragonflight Season 1?
To purchase more PvP gear, you will need to earn Conquest currency by participating in the likes of Arenas, Rated Battlegrounds, and more.
For WoW Dragonflight Season 1, the first week's Conquest cap is 1350. From here, it will increase by 550 per week. Spend that first Conquest haul wisely, maybe on a Trinket or some gloves?
New PvP Arena Map in WoW Dragonflight
Before we get to the WoW Dragonflight Season 1 PvP Arena map pool rotation, it is probably a good idea to mention that there's a brand-new Arena map called Nokhudon Proving Grounds, which you can view in the image above. Read an official description of the new Arena map in WoW Dragonflight below:
Within Clan Nokhud's stronghold are their Proving Grounds, where the centaurs compete to be named the clan's greatest warrior. Compete for glory in this new Arena that has a unique gameplay layout, utilizing ramps, pillars and a middle wall to break your opponents' line of sight.
WoW Dragonflight Season 1 PvP Arena Map Pool Rotation
With Season 1 of Dragonflight, Blizzard has introduced a weekly map pool rotation for both Rated and Skirmish Arenas. This has been implemented with the goal of keeping things fresh from week to week. Check out the weekly Arena map pool rotation, which includes Rated Solo Shuffle as well, below.
