March 2012 Media Event FAQ
Q: What is
World of Warcraft®: Mists of Pandaria™
Escalating tensions between the Alliance and Horde have broken out into open warfare. The roar of cannons blacken the sky while naval engagements around the globe fill the seas with blood. As the clash of mortal armies spins the world into chaos, a continent -- once shielded by impenetrable mists -- suddenly manifests itself in the southern oceans. There’s no question that this resource-rich new land will be at the center of a global conflict. Will the Mists of Pandaria part to reveal Azeroth’s salvation? Or will this new battlefield become the flashpoint that pushes the Alliance and Horde over the brink into
The Exalted: An Overview of all Reputations
2011/07/10 at 5:26 PM
Like achievement points and reputation rewards? 4.2 introduces a new raid-only reputation, the
Avengers of Hyjal
, as well as a slew of daily quests to boost reputation with
Guardians of Hyjal
. It's a crazy time in 4.2 with all the new things to do, but really, quest hubs and rep grinds are nothing new to the game.
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!
For personal achievements, there are a series of reputation-related ones:

Patch 4.2: A Complete Guide to Stage One of the New Dailies
2011/06/06 at 6:22 AM
Patch 4.2 introduces a completely new daily quest hub and provides an excellent new direction for dailies. The only downside is that some of the quests are so enjoyable while others aren't half as cool; it creates a stark contrast of dailies that feel like fun and others that feel like a chore. Still, it's a lot better than other daily hubs of yesteryear and the rewards are much better. Our volunteers (Neutronimity and ArgentSun) plus myself have been doing the dailies every day, so we have a series of guides in the works for you!
The first stage of the Firelands Invasion serves as an introduction to the current events of Hyjal. The Guardians of Hyjal have made a call for all heroes to join them in their effort to protect Hyjal from Ragnaros' armies and to push the battle back to the Firelord's domain. Each stage of this effort in pushing them back becomes a stage of dailies to unlock. If your character hasn't completed the zone prior, you will first be asked to assist the four Ancients of Mount Hyjal. Only after this is done will you be able to join everybody else in their war against the Firelands.
As it's usual with PTR content, keep in mind that while there is a good chance that the content presented here will remain
Patch 4.2: Crystallized Firestones Used to Upgrade Gear Into Heroic iLevels
2011/06/01 at 2:01 AM
There's a new vendor and loot system up after today's patch on the 4.2 PTR. Outside of
, there's a new vendor
that flies on a
. In exchange for one
--an item which drops from heroic mode bosses every kill--she will upgrade an item into its heroic version. It is worth mentioning that the base items for these upgradeables can come from both from the Valor Points vendor in Orgrimmar/Stormwind and from the Firelands raid. Currently only twenty-one items are affected, but what's the most important are that the relics are affected along with wands and other ranged weapon slots. This means that, unlike current content, we won't be in max ilevel gear with a significantly lower level relic slot.
Interestingly enough, there are also some items for other slots--like a leather belt and a necklace. This may mean that Blizzard will use this vendor to enhance loot tables without having to needlessly increase the diversity and RNG of a boss' loot table. It will be a smart way to make sure that seven bosses have an entire tier's worth of ilevel, for sure. As I speculated previously, with the loot tables being so varied, they had a good opportunity to pull s
Reputation and Daily Rewards in Patch 4.2
2011/05/20 at 9:15 PM
When a new patch hits, the first thing you want to know is where to get geared up. Besides the
raid itself, there are two other methods in which to get gear so far. We've put the items we've uncovered earlier this week and last into separate listings so you can see how you can get gear beyond just the boss drops from a certain Firelord's new domain.
Avengers of Hyjal
This faction will provide players with extremely good gear--if they can become famed with them, anyway. The specifics aren't out yet and all we know is that it will involve some raiding. Luckily for non-raiders, most people are speculating that it will be more like one of vanilla's reputation grinds:
Brood of Nozdormu
. Unlike the most recent raid reputation grind of
The Ashen Verdict
from Wrath of the Lich King, Brood reputation was able to be acquired without raiding up until a certain point and then up until introductory bosses until another. So if it does indeed follow this method, it wouldn't be hard to imagine the friendly or even honored rewards being obtained by people who seldom set foot in the raid instance.
It's also nice to see a lot of items besides rings making an appearance. Keep in mind that these are by no me
Cataclysm Reputations Guide - Vendors, Rewards and More!
2010/12/10 at 8:05 PM
With many players already reaching max level in the new expansion, we thought you guys might want a review of all of the amazing Cataclysm reputation rewards available!

That's why we've put together a full guide, complete with reward tables and prices, for all of the new Cataclysm factions!
It's important to notice that, once again, shoulder and helm enchants are available as faction reputation rewards.

That Darn Furbolg
2009/02/20 at 2:04 PM
Some 10,000 years ago
, revered mage of the
and a member of The Six who oversee
, negotiated an alliance between earthen, tauren, night elves, and a mysterious bear-man race who supposedly originated in
. The alliance proved successful against the Burning Legion for the time being. Over the years these bear-men, given the term furbolg, befriended the night elves and tauren. The night elves found nurturing allies in the furbolg as they were invaluable for their knowledge of the moonlit forests. However, the Burning Legion would not let this truce go unhindered for long.
Our blog entry today deals with the furbolg. I bet a lot of you have seen them in-game, whether you recognized them or not. Through time, I have learned to appreciate some of the finer points of lore and I think these creatures are simply fascinating. Some of you may be curious about what a furbolg is and why exactly I am obsessed with them. Well, who cares!
THEY HAVE FUR AND CLAWS!
The Sungrass is Always Greener on the Other Side of the Zone
2008/12/24 at 1:55 AM
My faction choice has historically been
a little biased
. My first character was a Dwarven Hunter that reached the ripe old level of 42 in the original game before I got tired of getting ganked in
by bored Horde (which would make a good name for a guild, in my opinion). I also rolled a Dwarven Rogue as part of
a Three Stooges joke
. He was 'Cheatem'. I thought the name to be an apt one.
Regardless, most of my experience has been on the Horde side of the fence. I know that to be the case with Malgayne as well, so when I saw him exclaim
For The Horde...?
, the unsureness of his statement made me wonder if he was thinking of becoming a turncoat. So, I read his post. What did I learn? Malgayne suffers from the same syndrome that a lot of my friends do from time to time: Faction Envy.
For the Horde...?
2008/12/19 at 2:00 AM
If you can't tell from the artwork at the top – that Blood Elf on the left is me – I'm a Horde player. I was an Alliance player for all of seven levels before I made the switch, and made the switch for good. Now I have my Blood Elf paladin main, a Troll mage and an Undead warlock alt, and scattered other random characters (I know I still have a shaman somewhere). I picked a server, I picked a faction, and I stuck with it. I rolled Horde side on Draenor and I never looked back.
Or did I?
Sometimes...I...I'm not sure I feel comfortable saying this. Sometimes...
I wish I had rolled Alliance

Greetings fellow travelers of Northrend! Today I invite you to join me in my adventure into
and experience a war between two rival factions. The
, who were forced to travel to Sholazar Basin because of the Scourge invading their homelands, have taken up arms against the native Gorlocs. The Gorlocs who occupy the basin are known as
, and consider themselves the guardians of the mysterious titan artifacts that litter their home. Though they know almost nothing about these artifacts, they worship and protect them from any harm.
Upon reaching level 76, you might find yourself trudging through the marshes and jungles of Sholazar Basin, surrounded by the warm atmosphere and rich, lavishing landscapes. I'm sure you have come across our little friends roaming the basin, shouting at each other and calling each other names like "Big-tongues" and "Puppy-men", and you may have thought to yourself, "How can I get involved in this growing conflict between these adorable little creatures?" This, my friends, is your answer.
