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.

    Those Camels look nice. Wonder how big those are. Can't imagine a Tauren on it will look very healthy for that camel.

    ooOO nice flying mount. I can get that just by farming rep on my own? Even if it's hard, I kinda like it. As I cant get mounts from raids atm, it's cool to be able to farm for a cool mount

    Limpy - yeah, you got a point there! Maybe Taurens get's fat camels

    Naa, actually these are probably how it'll look - they have about as much gear to sell as Kirin Tor / Argent Crusade have. Maybe a few stat redistributions, beta subject to change etc, but this is pretty much how it'll look.

    All they're missing, is their tabard (if they'll have one), and perhaps a few profession recipes.

    Wrath quartermasters also sold resistant enchants, but no-one used them so maybe they're not being replaced.

    Ohh and of course, there's at least 1, if not 2 more factions that'll sell stuff (no spell power enchant), so "obvious" gaps like hunter epics are probably from them too (since hunters don't use spellpower enchant!)

    To resolve any confusion.

    Tol Barad the actual zone is the PvP Battle zone like Wintergrasp, when your team wins, 2 guys spawn in Baradin Hold with 3 quests each, these can rotate and change every time you re-take but you can only get 6 of them a day (currently on beta).

    To the north there is Tol Barad Peninsula where the horde and alliance both have encampments with their Reputation vendors and 5 additional dailies that you can do any time of the day. So 11 a day total and your faction has to win Tol Barad at least once to do the other 6.

    So ways to get rep:
    #Winning Tol Barad - 300-325rep per battle win, multiple times a day if your faction wins alot
    #11 Daily quests a day - 250-300 rep (can never tell with rep bonus) for a total of 2750-3300rep a day.
    #Baradins Wardens Commendation - 250 rep for the cost of 10 Tol Barad Commendation ( I think its 10 )

    Total rep you can earn a day is:
    -Lets say you can win Tol Barad 3 times a day- 900-975 rep
    -11 dailies- 2750rep-3300rep a day
    -turning in commendations (which means you dont want any of the amazing pre-raid gear) 250 per day
    Total: 3900-4525 rep a day, low number before rep bonus ( i think )

    Hideous! They're hideous! Oh, what madman would create such abominations and call them 'fan art'? It's insulting in my opinion!

    Hunters use the AGI enchant, so they actually have both their enchants (shoulder/head) already.

    This isn't bad at all. Look at the rep for the Sholazar factions. You only get less than 2k a day there and farming to exalted is pretty quick.

    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!
    I love how you say: "rep with BG factions should be hard!"

    and then say: "GRIND REP!??!?!?! NO WAY!!"

    pick one.

    That sounds pretty reasonable, except my faction *never* wins WG. So based on that experience I can probably reasonably expect to get Exalted with these guys sometime after the *next* expansion drops. It's amazing really. My main is Alliance and we never win WG on our server. So a few months back my guild decided to get an alt Horde guild going on another server. Leave it to my GM to pick an Alliance dominated server for our alt guild... So we never have WG *there* either :-)

    I believe the Tol Barad PvP conflict is limited to 'even sides'.

    Not that that'll solve the WHOLE problem, but...

    Looks like I'll have my hands full getting rep at 80 in cataclysm. Although what I'm really looking for is where we can get either the Drake of the North or South Winds. I was never really crazy about red or green drakes that aren't the classic drake model.

    Also, I like the fan arts. Am I the only one that noticed Whitemane's face looks a little... Yea.
  1. Lakiri's Avatar
    That fanart is the most -hideous- things of fanart I've -ever- seen. What the fuck is this, World of Maplestory-craft? Geeze.

    Other than that, YAY CAMEL MOUNTSSSS. I just hope they wont cost 10,000 gold per camel, though.

    Glad to see a real tanking shoulder enchant, so we aren't having to resort to a pvp inscription this time around.
