Guild Rep/XP not awarded in dungeons on beta?
This data did not make the last patch. This functionality should be live in the next build. (Source)

Guild System in Patch 4.0.1
The new guild system UI will be active in the pre-patch but guild experience and guild achievements will be disabled until Cataclysm launch. (Source)

Fan Arts
The official Blizzard Fan Art Section has been updated with 4 new pieces of artwork.

    I bet it's piss easy to get exhalted with Tol Barad, I had to get about 80k kills to get exhalted with the 3 PVP factions now and farming WSG was a pain but not as bad as AB, AV was pure cake so I hope the rep from Tol Barad isn't another AV but more like WSG, aka takes ages and only the people who PVP ALOT have it.

    And I thought shoulder enchants are BOA now? why would they change it for Cata? I hope not I can't be arsed farming rep for 6 80's and with Cata I'm hoping to have about 9, so fuck that!

    Actually there will be spirit on Plate healing gear as well as the spirit on Mail Healing gear. Spirit is the new mp5 stat. So no, that's not a place holder.

    Almost it seems, tanks have talents that will boost their stam though. As well as probably items like tier stats will be broken down a bit differently from base items I hope.

    Tol Barad isn't a BG like WSG, AV, etc though. It's basically Wintergrasp 2.0. Every so often there is a battle, the winning faction gets control of the zone for a set time and access to npcs that give daily quests. I'm assuming the main method of gaining Tol Barad rep is via these daily quests. You'll probably get rep for each win as well, maybe a smaller amount of rep to the losing faction (to encourage them to participate).

    EDIT: Oh, and I forgot about the Tol Barad raid, Baradin Hold. Basically the same deal as VoA. That'll probably give rep too, killing the boss(es) and npcs in there.

    Quick question, is the PVP zone balanced horde / alliance ratio wise ?

    And this is bad why? Are you in every single guild on every single server? If not, why do you care how fast other guilds level or what they have access to? I never could figure out why people care about things like that...

    So because you had to "walk uphill both ways" everyone else should, too? That sense of entitlement won't get you very far.

    And the shoulder enchants from Sons of Hodir were not originally BoA. The intent, most likely, is the same with the upcoming enchants in Cata. Give a couple major patches and they'll likely convert them into BoA.

    Nice stuff, but I'm confused by all those mentions of +hit on gear, I thought that stat was getting removed.

    No, the issue was thet guild rep was (apparently) tied to xp contribution. So guild rep is always available to be earned, regardless of whether the guild has reached the daily guild xp cap.

    Over a guild with 50 members.
    IIRC, Blizzard also has in place a "cap" on how much XP can be gained per day. Larger guilds would reach this cap pretty easily each day, while smaller guilds might have to strive harder to reach the cap. But I don't think the size of the guilds will make much difference in the guild leveling rate.

    no +hit stays.
    ArP gets removed as well as mp/5.
    SP will also only exist on weapons.
    AP should be gone as well (replaced by Agi/Str).

    From what I've seen, there are two parts to Tol'Barad. So, there's one where you can go to quest normally to the north, and the actual WG-ish warfield to the south. Looked like it in the Totalhalibut video anyways
