Should be exciting new season 2 rewards (and you can carry 5,000 arena points with you into season 2). The new armor is nearly identical (slight color changes) to the Tier 5 armor for each class. I guess this is because it’s similar in stats/power to Tier 5 armor. (That and creating a ton of new visuals is expensive.)
All the ratings get reset so it’s off to the races again for unknown rewards. This seasons top .5% got super-fast armored netherdrake mounts as rewards – that’s pretty cool. So I’m assuming season 2 will have really cool rewards for the top players as well.
When the stats for the new armor and weapons gets posted somewhere I’ll link to it.
