Mists Of Pandaria To Bring More PvP Action
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment recently posted a new in-house Q&A with World of Warcraft game director Tom Chilton. The interview focuses on plans for player vs. player content in the upcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion. In addition to other new content, Mists will include two new battlegrounds with new gameplay types as well as a new arena.

How is the war being brought back to World of Warcraft in relation to PvP?

Tom Chilton - Well, the best answer to that is that weíre very deliberately trying to get people back out into the world, and so that means on a PvP realm, youíll have more people to kill that are out in the world. Generally speaking, the most fun outdoor PvP is just the spontaneous conflict that happens as a natural result of people being out in the world. Itís not the stuff the designers create for you.

Many players on PvE realms are concerned about being forced to PvP or take part in World PvP when they donít want to, what can you say to them about the plans for this?

Tom Chilton - There are no plans to force PvP on players who are on PvE realms. Their experience shouldnít change and theyíll have the same opportunities for PvP (if they wish to take part) as they do now. Itís also worth noting that the Black Market Auction House has the potential to become a world PvP location for those on PvP realms. Just like the name implies, these are goods being sold out in shady locations away from the prying eyes of guards in the cities. They are not in neutral or safe zones. For PvE realms, itís not going to have that same risk for placing a bid as on a PvP realm (aside from being outbid).
