The news has been sticking in the back of my head for a while now but didn't make it to the blog yet. So for those who try not to troll any WoW news sources other than my blog (kudos to that btw):
Season 4 will be upon us probably on the 24th of this month.
You keep your arena / honor points and merciless gladiator gear will go to the honor vendors.
So it's probably a good time to go grab that extra stack of honor / arena points so you can buy yourself some spiffy goodies...
Or not and enjoy the relative quiet of other places like myself.
