It seems the arenas are down until Friday, the 8th at the earliest due to some errors and what not. It's a shame too, since they are just so much fun.
We're still in the process of testing issues that are occurring with the arena and battleground systems and waiting to ensure that the arenas can be brought up with little issue. We're currently estimating that the earliest they will be available is Friday, December 8. We apologize to those of you looking forward to the arena system and we hope to have them available for you as soon as possible.
We have temporarily disabled the battlemasters for the arena system due to an issue that appeared during our patch implementation today. We anticipate this issue to be resolved by tomorrow and we will provide an update once the battlemasters and arenas are available. The issue will be able to be resolved with a hotfix while the realms are live and should not require any additional downtime. The battlemasters for the battlegrounds will still be available during this time.
