Hopefully, the winter coat can fit over the chain mail, because Arathi Basin has succumbed to the weather. Every couple of weeks, there is a new PvP Brawl event, allowing gamers to play a battleground that has received a few changes.

Starting today, until December 31st, World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth gamers can participate in the PvP Brawl: Arathi Blizzard.

Arathi Basin, which is a battleground that has been around since Vanilla WoW, receives a new look during this event. This isn’t the first time Arathi Blizzard has been featured as a PvP Brawl, but it’s always exciting nonetheless.

Here is a gameplay video that shows off what Arathi: Blizzard is all about.

The event is purely aesthetic. The entire map has been littered with snow and ice, with almost the whole lake freezing over. One of the coolest aspects of Arathi Blizzard is the fog that has set in.

The battleground has been engulfed by a thick fog, making it impossible to see more than a few meters ahead.

Typically, in Arathi Basin, gamers can see hundreds of meters ahead, and be able to tell what’s going on at multiple points on the map.

For example, gamers can stand on top of the mountain that features the Lumber Mill and look down upon the Blacksmith. However, with this thick fog, that is no longer the case! Arathi Blizzard adds new elements, literally and figuratively, for gamers to adapt to, which is always a treat for veteran players.

Arathi Basin’s ruleset doesn’t change during the PvP Brawl event. The Alliance and Horde have up to 15 players each, and the goal is to gain 1,500 resources. Resources are obtained by controlling specific locations on the map.

The five locations that players fight for are the Stables, Lumber Mill, Blacksmith, Farm, and Gold Mine. Once one of these locations is captured, the faction will try and hold the point as long as they can. The longer they have it, the more resources are accumulated. Each team fights to control at least three of the locations.

Arathi Blizzard features this exact gameplay, but with a few new obstacles that force players to change up their strategy, that is, if they have a plan.

The last PvP Brawl event was Classic Ashran, which brought in unique quests and events to the battleground.

This is the last PvP Brawl of the decade, so WoW gamers should queue up and end the decade with their faction on top!
