My first suggestion for PvP 1.9 "Small edition but very rewarding"
I think I speak for most when I say we need "rares" to chase. Something that has an insanely low drop rate, but every ounce of you makes you crave it like a chubby kid craving ice cream!
* No offense is intended towards chubby kids.
Lets use Fluffy for an example, only drops in PvP "excluding the rare PvE mishaps that drop it". Most want it, our hearts beat 100mph when we hit "Need" on fluffy for that 1 in 20 chance we... just... might... get.. it... this...... time!
So here are my suggestions for some PvP rares that would give us that uber feeling that at anytime it might just be our day to win the lotto.
Another pet: Cry havoc and release the dogs of war! A nice muscular dog, head held low to the ground with that ravaged look in his eye. Some blood stains, charred marks across his body, and all scarred up like he took a few hits for the team.
War mount: Dim colored muddy hyena. Bloodied face with a mist of red spraying from its mouth each time it breaths. Don't forget, we want that annoying hyena laugh each time we make it jump! Nothing more would make your heart race then running from the enemy and you hear that yipping hyena laugh coming closer and closer!
PvP equivalent of a Sand covered wardrobe set: I think this would look awesome if it was identical to the sand covered set except it has the appearance of being somewhat tattered and bloody.
Wardrobe helmet: Slim fitting Ituziel helmet "Sorry I don't like bulky, think back to the abyssal helm." This would have the fire eyes and the wide opened mouth of fire!
Weapon particle effect: Of course, this would have to give your weapon the appearance of dripping blood.
Make these extremely rare, and make it so the only way to get these is by a completely random drop inside of the new PvP zone. Do not ever offer these through an event, event merchants, etc.
These are true war trophies that are never to be obtained through any other way then blood, sweat, and tears. Ohh and the occasional broken keyboard =)
Remember the more they are wanted and cherished the more people will complain that don't have them. At that point you have the drop rate tuned to perfection.
Nothing crushed my uberness more then getting Murdantix mount from a rift and then later on it was a much easier drop from the HK Chronicles.
*Clutches his Aelfwar Marauder's Helm like gollum all while petting it and calling it precious!
