Regarding the raid gear you say, you must know that the items we are awarding are blue ones from Zul'Gurub trash mobs, despite two epic rings from random Zul'Gurub boss loot (you need 250 Bloody Coins to obtain each of them). We preferred to offer this kind of loot (which is not OP) instead of creating custom equipment.
Isn't that a bit weird? Giving gear from mobs that cannot be raided right now and in the foreseeable future (due to too few players) by PvP-ing. On a PvE server?

Wouldn't giving away the lower rank PvP gear make more sense? (Because ranked PvP is kinda blocked here due to too few BGs)
Well, the goblin syndicate have managed to steal these goods from the Gurubashi.

/rp off

Lower rank PvP gear will make less sense since it requires a specific PvP rank to obtain it. Also, the gear we are offering, even if it's from a raid, is not as OP as some BiS items that can be obtained in 5 man dungeons, so it won't unbalance anything. (And just as a note, as I said, despite de two rings, the blue items are from trash mobs, so technically you don't need 20 players to clear them).

Also, I'm going to quote myself again, because we wan't to add PvE events there in a future:

P.S.: We have already players who have earned the 250 Bloody Coin ring.
P.S.2: As always, all suggestions are appreciated.

And for those of us that don't enjoy or care to do pvp, I take it there's a plan to offer a pve way to get these rewards so that we don't feel neglected?

Then you would be able to obtain these items by killing Zul'Gurub trash mobs. We are working on other PvE only events which will be announced at some point, just stay tuned.

I look forward to seeing the PvE based additions then, as obviously running Zul'Gurub 20 man raid instance (even for trash) wasn't a serious alternative offering.

Keep it up.

I don't care that much about specific gear, I'm just not a fan of handing out raidgear in general. There are already people running around with the epic ring, so it can't be too difficult to obtain...

Only one person at this moment who has spent several, several hours doing PvP there non stop. PvE events will come, there is room for everyone, chill. turtle_tongue

Any news on the PvE plans to earn these coins for those of us not in to kill trading?

Could maybe add coin drops on dungeon bosses and sub bosses, maybe a coin on each sub boss and 2 on the boss? Might encourage more dungeon running groups.

Would be nice to see other options to gain them through a repeatable quest perhaps though you'd need to put quests in to suit various levels, 20, 30, 40, 50. Possibly hand in 20 wool, silk, mageweave, runecloth (the cloth to be used to make bandages for those in the arena for the backstory).

Just some thoughts.

We are working in other PvE content not related with Bloody Coins. Bloody Coins are earned from a PvP event and will only be rewarded inside the arena. We will study your idea regarding exchanging cloth for Bloody Coins though, I kinda like it.

Glad to hear that. Being low level in this server currently feels like a depleting option for roleplaying possibilities. The idea to get coins through a repeatable quest is very good, but I'd also like to see low level coin rewards added. Currently us, low level players, don't see any point in visiting the arena - not for fun, not for rewards.

Currently you can level up inside the arena or increase your reputation with the city of your choice. Spending coins for a low level piece of equipment that you will replace soon is not fun. :(

Sorry to argue, Pompa, but what you may find as fun differs from what others do. I'd like to roleplay for example, or having locked XP - gather appropriate gear. In this case, you fail to consider the advantages of small additions like this. None is bound to get anything from the arena, but having multiple options for all of the level groups seems like the definite way to create a server-wide event like this one.

You can already have it. Locked XP is there in the Speedy's menu and Roleplaying … well, host one with some kind of a theme and announce it for people to join, I'm sure they'd be only glad for it. You'll have best experience ever. Last RP event on alliance was a joy (for me at least). I was so much glad and I'd dare to say even happy that so many people around me were actually roleplaying altogether in one inn… it was a blast! turtle_in_love

Regarding XP - gotta admit, sometimes I still would like to have the initial Blizz system used for the start at the alpha where we'd have like … what, a quarter of original retail classic? Perhaps devs here would even consider making a Stop XP command for players with restriction - once you use it, you won't be able to participate in BGs (except Gurubashi Arena event). However I understand the needs of the server for both promotions and hosting costs should somehow be covered so I'm not going to push on that one.

I digress however. You are free to make suggestions on approriate forums and I'm sure devs will look into it.
