Patch 5.1: Realm Event Time Changes, Transmogable Guild Cloaks
2012/11/28 at 12:34 PM
Today's 5.1 news round up covers everything from fun vanity items to event time changes. On the light-hearted side of things, we have information on a new disguise from
and transmoggable guild cloaks. On the more serious side of things, we have information on standardized region-wide times for events like the
Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza
, which returned in 5.1 after a hiatus due to CRZ complications, when to expect Brawler's Guild Invitations on the BMAH, and clarifications on the new Beastmaster dailies like
Beastmaster's Quarry: The Crane
And in sad news, we have confirmation from
Dave Kosak on twitter
that the Warlock "green fire" questline everyone was looking forward to was pushed back to 5.2.

5.1 PTR: Legendary and Faction Quests
2012/11/20 at 11:51 AM
Since we last covered new quests in 5.1, there's been some big updates we wanted to share about legendary and faction quests. We datamined some possible rewards for the legendary chain in 5.1, including new gems and sockets. We also pieced together more of the epic 5.1 faction questlines and now know that they reward players with a mount!
There are upgraded versions of legendary gems:
Refined Crystallized Dread
Refined Crystallized Horror
Refined Crystallized Terror
Eye of the Black Prince
allows you to add another gem socket to your Sha-Touched weapon, similar to
Living Steel Belt Buckle
. These are for regular gems, not additional legendary gems.
Since we last covered the datamined quests, Blizzard has trimmed down the PvP requirements. Instead of winning 10 Battlegrounds, you only have to win one in
Temple of Kotmogu
Two achievements have been added:
A Test of Valor

New Item Upgrade System in 5.1, WoW's 8th Anniversary, BWC Coverage
2012/11/19 at 11:23 AM
While 5.1 has a handful of new gear from reputation rewards, the majority of gear upgrades in 5.1 will come through a new currency-based upgrade system. Players can permanently increase the ilvl of their 458+ gear (both armor and weapons) by visiting a new Ethereal and cashing in spare currency.
Wowhead has created several tools for item upgrades:
Each item's page has toggle options to display upgraded stats.
An Upgrade column has been added to search result pages. This displays all the upgrade versions for an item in icon form, similar to dynamic quest rewards. Mousing over these icons will display the upgraded versions.
A new search filter has been added: "Can Be Upgraded" under General.
Advanced tooltip code
has been added so you can display a specific upgraded item's tooltip.
