Arathi has three sets of appearances you can collect in game right now. Does winning a heroic Warfronts reward the "once per cycle" appearance? Or one of the other two (win basic Warfronts or emissaries)?
If they allowed Warfronts and Island Expeditions to count towards the 30 dungeons and 1000 PvP kills for your artifact tints, I'd feel more compelled to do them on my alts.
PVP warfronts? Yipee....more Alterac Valley tactics of "Let's see who can kill the enemy leader first". I think heroic is enough.
Heroic warfronts... but no PvP warfronts, which is what they should have been from day 1.
Yay, more content for no-lifers to exploit runs for gold from the little people.
Do we know about what loot these drop? To be clear, I'm not talking about ilvl, but the transmog; is it a new, Heroic variation, is it the Elite version or the the basic? It better be the Elite, so we can at least farm it while the event is running, instead of waiting for the event to cycle.
I always liked that warfronts were essentially an automatic win, which basically makes them a casual battleground. Easy way to get gear for those that don't like PvP or raiding. That said, I have no problem with heroic warfronts NOT being an automatic win. Although, tbh, if I have a group of 10-20 friends, we're probably going to raid, not do warfronts.
