I can't help but notice that there's PvP daily quests where you can kill other players or pvp flagging npcs.  You can opt out of the PvP if you don't want to, since there are also PvE dailies as well.  I'm glad to hear about this, and was expecting something like this after 5.1 was launched, open world pvp on my server skyrocketed after 5.1.  I don't think it's possible to go through krasarang wilds without seeing at least a few flagged players, during peak hours it's like an all out war :D

The only thing to remember is that it still requires people to want to take part and for all the whining on forums like this about the lack of open world PvP it still seems to be a microscopic amount of people that actually take part when it comes down to it. There is only so much Blizzard or any other company can do to encourage opwn world PvP, the players have to do their part as well.

It must be Thursday, i never could get the hang of Thursdays.

Exactly.  On PvE servers, you are going to see a few people flagged here and there..  but very little actual fighting.   PvP servers will be the same as any other time they add dailies to a small, shared area..

I really don´t think you are going to see many players on PvE servers opt-into the pvp dailies...  mainly because it takes a lot longer to complete.

It is great the Blizzard keeps trying this stuff, nothing wrong with that... but the problem is just efficiency and the playerbase.  If the devs make the pvp dailies the fastest way to finish, then pve players will complain about being forced into pvp.

The playerbase will be active in open world pvp when it's all shiny and new and after a few weeks nobody will care again. just another gimmick added to wow.

It's a sad state of affairs when players need a quest to motivate them to pvp, whatever happened to pvp'ing just for the sake of it?

Wow: gaming experience is horrible if you are a tier + behind, which causes issues because people are not going to do pvp content if it means they are not progressing their gear. Just like dailies it won't offer competitive gear because they don't want to upset the top end pvp/ overs. Catch 22 mess as with dailies.

rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW (10000 hrs on main mage)> oblivion > LOTR (600 runemaster/Hunter) > Rift (230 hours mage) > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(1000 elementalist), Wildstar

Now playing GW2, AOW 3, ESO, LOTR

gank a lowbie multiple times in a row; he will go full emo; log in his mains or call friends and blammo: you got world PVP inc.

WoW is reward oriented. If, after so many years, someone still plays WoW, you can be almost sure that they're the kind of games for whom rewards mean everything. There are exceptions, RP players, but they make about 5% of the population, probably even less. Therefore, people doing stuff in WoW "for the sake of it" are extremely hard to find.

Just doesn't work like that the majority of the time anymore, they are more likely to go play an alt until they think you have gone away and then carry on from where they left off. Used to love it when the Horde would launch assaults on SW and all levels would run to join in the fun, but now if you get a SW attack message (very rarely) no-one really cares. The classic retaliation would be a raid on Crossroads, again with all levels and abilities having a go, getting a couple of lowbies to lure a L60 out to be ambushed by a couple of rogues was so much fun, but again, there is a general 'meh' about PvP now which is a shame.

It must be Thursday, i never could get the hang of Thursdays.
