Packed House PvP Brawl
Packed House is back as this week’s PvP Brawl.
The reward for winning is 160 honor for the first win, and 80 honor for subsequent wins. Winning a Brawl for Something Different rewards a Brawler’s Footlocker and winning a Brawl daily also awards an additional set of Wakening Essence, doubling the amount of Wakening Essence that is normally possible from Battlegrounds while this PvP Brawl remains active. Note: this Brawl is not awarding the Wakening Essences, but all other brawls do.
We’ve put more PvP in your PvP! In Packed House, there’s nowhere to hide as you face not 2, not 3, not 5, but 15 adversaries in this 15 vs. 15 Arena battle.
What are PvP Brawls?
A series of new twists on popular player-versus-player activities are on the way. Starting with “Southshore vs. Tarren Mill”, “Gravity Lapse”, and “Warsong Scramble”, PvP Brawls offer a variety of mode, rules, and scenic changes to the usual Battleground gameplay. Look for the Brawl option in the Group Finder (default hotkey: i) Player vs. Player tab, under the Casual selection.

Broken Isles World Boss
This week’s Broken Isles World Boss is Ana-Mouz. If you’re after Artifact Appearances that drop from World Bosses, remember that the Fury Warrior components and Enhancement Shaman appearance can be found from Trial of Valor bosses in a hotfix.
More information on all the Legion World bosses in the Broken Isles World Bosses Guide.
If you have been doing your World Bosses regularly, you should have already unlocked Unleashed Monstrosities as well. To use this tint, you must have unlocked the base Valorous artifact appearance via Improving on History first.
Here is the full rotation.
Arena Skirmish Event
While this event is active, Honor Gains from Arena Skirmishes are increased by 50%. Will you answer the call to battle?
During this time, you will get the Sign of the Skirmisher buff which can significantly increase the amount of Honor earned from completing random Arena Skirmishes.
What is an Arena Skirmish?
- Arena Skirmishes is a form of unranked PvP arena. You can queue with 1 or 2 party members, or by yourself and be matched up with others.
- Your PvP ratings are not affected by wins and losses in Skirmishes
- You can start doing Arena Skirmishes at level 15, with a new bracket every 10 levels.
The archaeology reward for the next week is Prizerock Neckband! If you don’t grab it in the next week, you’ll have to wait another 6 months for the rotation!
Completing 8 archaeology quests unlocks an Artifact Tint from This Side Up.
- Midsummer Fire Festival continues.
- Darkmoon Faire starts this Sunday.
