The blood-soaked fields of strife in Azeroth are ripe with opportunities for glory. Generals call this ordeal a war effort; combatants simply call it PvP. Experience the conflict firsthand as a soldier, a gladiator—or both—and forge an everlasting legend in the fires of battle.
Nothing can quite match the feeling of crossing steel—or flinging spells—against a living, breathing opponent who can anticipate your every move. PvP is frantic and requires swift reactions; thus, make sure to re-map your action buttons to your keyboard instead of mouse-clicking on them. Fight the good fight and you´ll be singing war stories at the nearest tavern alongside your (good) fellows in no time.
For hardened fighters looking to distinguish themselves further, there’s a nice selection of Achievements to earn while out in the field, some of which grant rare rewards (cool titles, for example). If you’d like more information, check your journal. Who knows? One day you might be honored as a Vanquisher, or perhaps an awe-inspiring Arena Master.
Armies need troops, and troops need gear. Bring victory to your faction and receive points to purchase tools of war from your local quartermaster: arms, armor, gems, enchantments, trinkets, and even mounts to ride into battle with. These items will give you an edge in combat and further improve your odds if the going gets rough—it will. Be ever vigilant.
