Arena buffed or not?
The Arena feels more difficult to me. Despite gaining 15,000 attack power from item buffs I felt like I hit like a wet noodle. However, others have said it feels the same to them (but that doesn't make sense to me because if you gained 15,000 attack power it should be much easier). How will this be going forward? I see three scenarios; Arena is buffed and not reset, Arena is buffed and reset, or Arena is unchanged. The first one will probably cause lots of salt and rage quitting because pre-patch times will be very hard to beat. The second seems unlikely to me since I doubt they want to give us first clear rewards three times in 42 days, and the last option is going to leave every class hitting like for a bazillion with 15,000+ AP and imprints probably creating multiple ties of 1s, 2s, or 3s times. The first tiebreaker is a pretty big joke too, and who knows what the second tiebreaker is.
It looks like a possible train wreck is about to happen. Maybe the item buffs and possible Arena buffs do not go through to live and they are saved for Feb reset/patch?
