Estimated arrival was very end of June, but could be into July last we've heard depending on how long bug-fixing/testing takes.

The update after the pvp update will increase level cap to 35.

Probably quite a few. And I don't know what changes are planned, but I wouldn't count on a justi slow. The class is built on not having one I think.

Will the pvp quests still be in place?

And I'm curious how it would be bad for the game or hurt others to use the new pvp to exchange gold shields between toons? The gs will still be earned, purchased, and spent and could be useful to help lower lv toons join your guild in larger raids where the help is needed. I like the idea and honestly don't see why it's considered bad by some. Why not let people spend gs however they choose?

Personally, I wouldn't mind being able to hand down gems after my main toon upgrades.

Edit: I'm being stupid...

PVP Beta quests will remain in place, but pvp feats will vanish and become heroic feats, so do them while you can. I believe they'll be replaced with new feats.

The main issue with being able to hand down gems is balance. A top might player can can get 3k chv with 100e spent... that'd totally disbalance things if I could just pass those gems down to my baby toons. They'd be maxed on t6s in a week...

PvP Replays

Will Replays be reset each PvP Season? Can we delete unwanted Replays? Can we save Awespoon Replays?

Replays will reset during any content change (AKA most updates) for technical reasons. Replays will be deleted off the end of the list (currently holds the last 20). There is no current way to delete replays or mark other replays as saved, but if this feature proves to be popular and useful we'll consider more enhancements.

Yes, the quests are still in place (although Lady Gwynn is being moved to the Captain's Quarters around the corner).

As to "exchanging" gold shields, each betting pool will have a Venan rake (currently set at 10%, so for example if both players bet 5GS, the winner gets 9GS). This innately puts a hamper on just transferring gold shields at will. Obviously with a feature like this we'll be keeping a very close eye on it to prevent abuse, and we have ways of temporarily disabling it if there proves to be an issue.

Which reminds me, can we send Venan replays for Bug Reports? Or will we have to obstain from PvP until Venan can log into our account?
