Shadowlands PvP Season 4: PvP Vendors, How to Upgrade PvP Gear, and Rewards (9.2.5)
Shadowlands PvP Season 4 acts more like a PvP season from an earlier era. Although the item names have changed to reflect the "eternal" theme, they are all still the same models introduced in Patch 9.2, albeit at a higher item level. Nevertheless, read on to see what new rewards can be earned during this final PvP Season of the Shadowlands expansion.
Season 4 is the final season of Shadowlands, and acts as something of an experiment compared to traditional content seasons before it. Although it features its own share of collectible mounts, titles, and achievements along with a bump in gear item levels, all of the dungeons and raids will be a little more familiar than usual...
