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

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.
Mists of Pandaria: Reputation Quick Facts (Updated for 5.4)
2012/09/30 at 12:39 PM
This guide provides quick facts for every Mists of Pandaria faction: where their quartermaster is located, how to gain reputation, and rewards. You can visit Wowhead's faction pages for more information, as well as our reputation guides, which have been updated for 5.4.
Eight factions originally shipped with Mists of Pandaria: four have epic gear rewards, while the other four have quirky vanity items. All have epic mounts and detailed tabards as Exalted rewards.
In later patches, two factions have been added for the Alliance and Horde (four total), as well as a raid-related faction and Timbermaw-style reputation grind.
Reputations are a bit different to grind in Mists of Pandaria--the old system of equipping a tabard and farming dungeons has been removed. Tabards only serve vanity purposes now and reputation is gained by doing daily quests. Each faction has a compelling story behind it and the daily quests are interesting and varied, such as completing a racecourse on a cloud serpent.

Justice Point and Valor Point gear no longer requires reputation and has undergone cost changes.
