The WoW Developers have applied very welcome fixes to the Ring of Valor Arena that will allow players to reduce their damage taken during fear or roots.  The flame wall was an exploitable mechanic for druids who would root players at the right moment and place to cause players to get flame wall damage without the ability to move away from it.  Fear could also cause players to take excessive damage with Flame Wall.

Now players can start fighting as soon as the elevator reaches to the top. The gates that used to surround the elevator have been removed.

  • The flame wall in the Ring of Valor arena will now be able to break spells like fear and roots after a player takes damage.
  • The gates in the Ring of Valor arena have been removed so players are now free to begin combat as soon as the elevators reach the floor of the arena.
  • We modified the small side pillars in the Ring of Valor arena to start in the up position instead of rising up a few seconds after the start of the match.
