We are currently planning to end Arena Season 8 as early as October 12. At that point we will go through our normal process to determine who is eligible for the end-of-season rewards. This process should take approximately one week. It's very important for players who feel that they may be eligible for the Arena-specific titles and/or the Relentless Gladiator’s Frostwyrm to refrain from transferring their character to another realm until after Arena Season 8 ends.

The next Arena Season will begin for level-85 players approximately one week after the official launch of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. During the break between seasons, all rated matches will be turned off and only skirmishes will be available. All Team Ratings, Personal Rating, and Arena Points will be wiped when Arena Season 9 begins, but Matchmaking Rating and Honor Points converted to the new currency system will remain.

Just enough time to finish my Relentless Chest, and that means we're even closer to 4.0, which should be fun.

Damn! Was hopin' we'd have more time our 3's is so close to getting our tier 2 weapon but im lacking points! Currently only 75 points away from my wrathful helm to complete the set though.

Guess we grind for titles, etc for the remainder of the season.

I wonder if this coincides with the patch date, then.

Was digging for some info and found this on page 4 off mmochamp.

Quote:
On the PvP side, Season 8 will end with the release of patch 4.0, and all Arena Points, Honor Points, any leftover Battleground Marks of Honor, Stone Keeper's Shards, Venture Coins, and Spirit Shards will be converted into the new Honor Points. The new Honor Point pool will also have a soft cap for these conversions, but a hard cap will be enforced later. At the time of conversion, items that previously cost Honor or Arena Points will be sold in exchange for the new Honor Points. Rated Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds won't be available again until Season 9 (shortly after the release of Cataclysm), when they can be entered to win the higher-tier PvP Conquest Points.

I wonder if that quote means what I hope it does: that weapons will be sold for (the new) honor points in 4.0. Obviously not the 2200 ones, but maybe the 1800 ones?

I guess I'll have to check on the PTR.

The season is ending after all, so it would be kinda cool if weapons and wrathful gear start getting sold for honor. I know S8 has dragged on forever, but i started playing a couple of alts near the end, and arena points are hard to come by outside 10 5v5 games a week.
