City Exploit Hotfixed
2012/10/07 at 5:13 PM
Earlier today, certain realms were affected by an in-game exploit, resulting in the deaths of player characters and non-player characters in some of the major cities. This exploit has already been hotfixed, so it should not be repeatable. It's safe to continue playing and adventuring in major cities and elsewhere in Azeroth.
As with any exploit, we are taking this disruptive action very seriously and conducting a thorough investigation. If you have information relating to this incident, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We apologize for the inconvenience some of you experienced as a result of this and appreciate your understanding.
Pet Battles: Wild Battle Pets by Zone
2012/10/07 at 11:10 AM
Capturing wild battle pets is a new way to obtain companion pets in Mists of Pandaria, and it is one of the primary ways of acquiring pets for your pet battle team.
Wild battle pets can be tracked on your minimap: you can have your team fight them for experience, or capture one at low health to add it to your collection. Pet families have strengths and weaknesses against other types, so choose your opponents wisely. There are different versions of each pet--some with more stats than others--so you could get lucky and end up capturing a really strong version! There's also many
achievements for capturing wild battle pets
We've made tables below of all the wild battle pets, organized by continent and color-coded by type. With this chart, you can see what pets are unique to various zones, and also which pet types are pretty scarce--Dragonkin and Mechanical especially. All the data was taken from our
interactive battle pet map
visual battle pet database
, so be sure to check them out for more information!

Patch 5.1 PTR Coming Soon
2012/10/05 at 11:04 AM
While Mists of Pandaria already comes packed full of some of the most diverse and expansive World of Warcraft content to date, we’re staying true to our goal of delivering new content faster. With that in mind, we’re pleased to share that the first major Mists of Pandaria content update, Patch 5.1, is well underway.
In fact, our plan is to release a build of patch 5.1 on the Public Test Realms soon so you can experience it for yourself! Initially, the PTR build won’t include all of the 5.1 patch content, but here’s a glimpse of the major features that are already in the pipeline.
Patch 5.1 Features
Pandaria and the War of Conquest
While members of the Horde and the Alliance have been busy exploring the exotic continent of Pandaria, Garrosh and Varian have been gathering their forces in preparation for the struggle to exert the influence of the Horde and the Alliance over these long-lost lands. Players who have quested through Pandaria will see forces of both factions arrive in force on the shores of the unspoiled continent, bringing the tensions between the Horde and the Alliance in

Patch 5.0.5 Hotfixes: October 2nd
2012/10/02 at 8:22 PM
Players no longer require Honored reputation with Mists of Pandaria factions to purchase gear with Justice Points.
The reputation requirement to purchase certain pieces of Mists of Pandaria Valor Point gear have been reduced from Revered to Honored. These include:
- neck items
The August Celestials
The item level of Mists of Pandaria gear that is purchased with Justice Points has been raised from 450 to 458.
The item level of Mists of Pandaria gear that is purchased with Honor Points has been lowered from 464 to 458. As a result, the quality color of these items has been changed from Epic to Rare. However, the PvP Power and PvP resilience of these items has been increased significantly so these items retain their previous degree of effectiveness in PvP.
Mists of Pandaria PvP item vendors were tired of getting the dook kicked out of them. Their health has been increased significantly.

Justice and Honor Gear ilvl Changes
2012/10/02 at 3:53 PM
Many players felt that the new
PvP rewards released today
were a bit overpowered, especially compared to Justice Point gear. The PvP gear had sockets while Justice Point rewards did not. In addition, the PvP gear had a much higher ilvl than the rewards you'd traditionally choose from Justice Points.
Blizzard released that the fastest way to gear up for PvE was to PvP, and changed the gear ilvls around in today's hotfix.
We’re working to adjust current Justice and Honor gear to better align with intended values. Currently it’s more lucrative to run Battelgrounds for ilvl 464 epics, and convert all Justice to Honor to gear up. While some crossover is fine, the most optimal way to gear for PvE doesn’t make sense to happen through PvP.<br /><br />This hotfix will ideally go out today, and once applied will change all Justice and Honor items (including those already purchased) in the following ways:<br /><br /><span class="underline">Justice Items</span><br /><ul>Current
Season 12 PvP Preview
2012/10/02 at 12:14 PM
Season 12, the latest PvP season, starts on
. There are new Honor and Conquest quartermasters selling ilvl 464-483 gear. This gear is pretty good for increasing your ilvl and starting dungeons--unlike past expansions, the PvP stats do not cut into the PvE itemization.
There are two new PvP stats in Mists: PvP Power and PvP Resilience. PvP Power increases the damage you do to other players as well as the healing you do to other players in PvP situations. PvP Resilience continues to be a defense stat. These two stats will only work in PvP situations, helping to ensure that PvE gear will remain weaker. Yon can filter by these stats now in our database.
Honor Quartermasters, selling ilvl 458 gear:
. Dreadful weapons were datamined with unique models but are not in-game currently.
Conquest Quartermasters, selling ilvl 483 gear and ilvl 470 weapons:
. Weapons require 0
earned to purchase.

Faction Justice Gear Hotfix
2012/10/01 at 8:10 PM
We've just applied a hotfix that removes the faction requirements for Justice gear.<br /><br />Shado-Pan and August Celestial factions will no longer require Golden Lotus faction to purchase this gear. This will allow players who have reached level 90 to have additional sources of item level (ilevel) 450 gear to progress into the Dungeon Finder Heroic dungeons more readily. <br /><br />Players who are looking to purchase this gear should seek out the following vendors:<br /><br /><strong><span class="underline">Townlong Steppes:</span></strong><br /><ul><li>Shadow-Pan - Rushin the Fox in Shado-Pan Garrison</li><li>All - Lo Pin in Niuzao Temple</li></ul><br /><br /><strong><span class="underline">Vale of Eternal Blossoms:</span> </strong><br /><ul><li>August Celestials - Sage Lotusbloom or Sage Whiteheart in the Horde and Alliance Shrines </li><li>Golden Lotus - Jaluu the Generous in front of Mogu’shan Palace</li></ul><br /><strong><span class="underline">Dread Wastes:</span></strong> <br /><ul><li>Klaxxi - Ambersmith Zikk in Klaxxivess</
Mists of Pandaria: Starting Your Legendary
2012/10/01 at 12:29 PM
To view an updated version of this guide for Patch 5.1, please click
There's a new legendary quest series in Mists of Pandaria and anyone that's 90 can begin working on it. Multiple people in your raid can work on it at the same time, and it can even be completed in LFR. We'll show you what you need to get started this week.
A few things set this apart from past legendaries:
All players in a raid can work on the legendary questline at the same time.
Legendaries are for everyone. Players complete quests for legendary gems, which are then socketed into Sha-Touched weapons from raids. There are nine weapons classified as Sha-Touched, covering all possible specs.
With this system, guild are only limited by the number of Sha-Touched weapons they see each week.
Legendary gems can be placed into weapons from LFR. Quest items can also be looted in LFR.
This legendary series will span the expansion, with more elaborate rewards each tier.
The reward for this first tier is an epic weapon with a legendary gem, not an actual legendary weapon.
