We want to provide some information about the direction of the Arena system. Upon the release of Wrath of the Lich King, players will find they are still able to access the Arena system at level 70 for rated matches. Those competing in the Arenas at 70 will still be able to attain items using Arena points and rankings; however, we do not currently plan to offer new items or titles for this bracket. Players who level past 70 will have their Arena points reset to 0 and be removed from all Arena teams in the level-70 bracket.

Two new skirmish brackets (71-75, 76-80) will be available for players who wish to hone their Arena skills while leveling in Northrend. Those who reach level 80 will once again have the opportunity to create new Arena teams and play in rated matches once a new season starts. New items, titles, and end-of-season rewards will be offered to the most successful teams at level 80. Additionally, the sets released for the Arenas in Wrath of the Lich King will no longer share aesthetic similarities with tiered raiding gear. We want those equipped with the best PvP rewards and those with the best raiding sets to stand out from each other. Players at level 80 will also have the opportunity to compete in two new Arenas featuring challenging new layouts, terrain hazards, and moving obstacles.

First!

Good idea with the points reset.

Any info on how the gear will differ?

Also:

Q u o t e:
challenging new layouts, terrain hazards, and moving obstacles.

This is going to be a bad idea imo. This will make it less skillful and more 'getting lucky'.

So pve people cant do pvp without getting whole new gear cause they get owned with pve gear ( no resi= 1 shotted ? ) and pvp people cant do pve anymore since you dont have the stats to do that ( hit raiting, expertiese, mana regen ).

Hah I saw this coming 2 weeks ago. My friend wouldn't believe me since he had collected arena points to the cap already :P

Although I might suggest doing something about honor aswell, either resetting or diminishing it when leveling past 70. Like arena points, honor shouldn't be a valid currency if farmed at a lower level (70 vs 80). Work at 70, pickup all items at 80 the moment you ding. Not good!

So if all resto drudus get arena points capped ,so its fair that they get all lvl 80 arena set for free cause theyr class were very powerful in tbc?

I think its good that they reset em, gives a fresh clean fair start for everybody :)

Will the Season 3 and Season 4 items current in the level 70 bracket have their rating requirements removed when this happens? Always wanted to finish the S3 set, just love how it looks, and also removing the rating requirements would allow people to spend the arena points they have built up on a few items to before they start leveling, win-win situation really.....

The current ratings wouldn't work anyways, as the massive drop in population of people competing in the lvl 70 bracket would mean their just wouldn't be enough teams to be able to get the massive high ratings of the top items.

EDIT: Also can you tell us if normal Honour Points are being reset also?
