Mists of Pandaria Faction Guide: The Lorewalkers
2012/08/21 at 2:46 PM
Gaining reputation with
is an unusual process. Instead of completing dailies or zone quests like most other Pandaren factions, players gain reputation by visiting monuments, completing achievements, and hearing folktales. If you have an organized path in mind, hitting Exalted should only take a few hours with a flying mount!
As the keepers of Pandaren culture,The Lorewalkers go hand-in-hand with the spirit of Archaeology. The unusual reputation grind fits the nature of these cultural librarians, and reputation rewards enhance this profession. Check out our beta article on archaeology changes

Mists of Pandaria: Guide to The Tillers
2012/07/31 at 2:07 PM
Calling the Tillers simply a "faction" sounds misleading--gaining reputation with
, in Valley of the Four Winds, is much more complex than any other Pandaria faction. You'll harvest a variety of crops yielding everything from vegetables to profession materials, gain reputation through a series of quests to expand your farm, and also gain friendship with 10 Tiller NPCs who enhance your farm in Halfhill.
There's a ton of stuff to cover in this preview, so we've broken it down into three tabbed sections:
: how to plant, grow, and maintain crops, as well as how to expand a farm.
: covers the main questline in which the player wins union votes from Halfhill residents, daily quests, and Tillers reputation rewards.
: the friendship reputation system, how to increase friendship through quests and gifts, as well as Best Friend rewards.
We have a video preview by Lore up of how to get started farming too!

Turtle Beach's Z11 Gaming Headset

Head Enchants Removed in Mists of Pandaria According to Ghostcrawler
2012/05/30 at 12:30 PM
We've been wondering where the head enchants were in Mists of Pandaria and it looks like they're gone! Ghostcrawler gave some insight today about how he disliked the head enchant system as he felt it caused players to pick their reputation based on their class rather than personal preference. He's also removed reputation based shoulder enchants, in favor of having scribes make shoulder enchants for all players.
What do you think? Are you ready to pick the faction with the cutest vanity rewards instead of the perfectly itemized enchant for your helmet?
Head enchants are gone.
We decided that putting head enchants on the various faction vendors wasn't working well with our design intent for the factions. There is a lot of max-level quest content in MoP, much of it focused around the reputation with the new factions. I think it's really cool stuff -- worlds away from the old Argent Crusade scourge stone days. :)
In previous expansions, the head enchants on the faction vendors served to force players into that content. You couldn't even choose which reputation to pursue -- you had to pursue the one with your specific head enchant. Our desi

Guardians of Hyjal

is still a prestigious title to get, especially if you haven't been playing since vanilla, so we'll highlight the available factions and spotlight fun titles and vanity items you can get along the way. Blizzard has a history of putting in complex reputation hubs--Isle of Quel'Danas, Argent Tournament, so if you enjoy Hyjal dailies, these older hubs are worth checking out when the 4.2 dust settles. if you can't stand questing, you can zerg older instances in your level 85 epics. We've recently updated the information on some of our faction and currency pages, so now is a great time to check them out!
