Upcoming Reputation Changes
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Earning reputation with various factions has long been an important part to World of Warcraft and as time has gone on, we've made tweaks and changes to the system to make it more interesting and to give players access to unique items. For example, we recently hotfixed the game to apply a change to some reputation items which you can read about in our recently updated blog that allows players to purchase certain items much sooner. And we're not done!

Coming in a future patch, earning reputation is going to become much more fluid. Basically, once one of your characters has reached at least Revered reputation with a faction, all other characters on the same Battle.net account will then earn reputation with the same faction at twice the rate. Going one step further, and as an added bonus, your main character who reached Revered will also begin to earn double the reputation as he or she climbs to Exalted.

Here's a simplified break down:
  • Any single character earns Revered reputation with a faction
  • All other characters on the Battle.net account begin to earn double reputation for that one same faction
  • The Revered character earns double reputation as he or she works toward Exalted
  • ???
  • Profit

We’ll keep you posted as this change is closer to being implemented. In the meantime, we’d love to hear your feedback!

    On a side note, if it takes half the time from revered to exalted, doesn't that make it basically cost 10.5k rep? Making it faster than getting to revered?

    Friendly 3k
    Honored 6k
    Revered 12k
    Exalted 21k (21/2 post patch) = 10.5k


    This seems... odd. And given the fact that each rank has been giving more and more dailies, I feel as though twice the rate is an extreme overkill.

    They should have just made each rep have a turn in that isn't ridiculously low drop rate or turn reputation dailies into weeklies. I really, REALLY dispise that dailies are required if you want to earn rep. If I miss a day because I only have a few hours and decide to run dungeons instead, I lose a day of progress that I can never get back.

    If I could devote my entire weekend to completing rep quests, I could run dungeons with my friends instead. However, since I want cloud serpent mounts and need rep to get valor items, I'm stuck saying no to dungeon runs because I only have 2 hours to play and have to complete a daily circuit.

    "What the hell, Blizzard? Why would you make rep grinding less tedious and mundane?"
    Same logic can be applied to everything in WoW: "What's so hard about killing trash? Lets remove it and kill only bosses". "What's so hard about flying to your destination? Lets just teleport all over the place or put all NPCs in one room". "What's so hard about farming reputation? Lets remove whole concept". "What's so hard about fishing? Just place NPC called FishVendor that gives it for free"

    Such logic has no place in MMORPG. People with such logic should go play FPS instead.

    I like the alt change, but don't get double for main Revered to exalted.

    Oh and the people blaming it on casuals are way wrong. Casuals aren't even 90 yet.

    This is all the people who said "I love BC" then when they got rep grind started whining.

    So please stop blaming casuals, this proves that the hardcore wannabees are the true whiners

    I approve of the changes made toward Alts, but I don't see the need to cut the reputation needed to get from Revered to Exalted in half. That I do think is very unfair, especially concerning grinds like The Insane. Ah well.

    So as someone who only plays their main and doesn't have any alts, they just cut the rep needed to go from revered--->exalted in half for no reason.

    I'm not complaining, I'm just trying to get it straight... I guess I'll have that Klaxxi scorpion mount faster than I thought.

    EDIT: So now it'll required more rep to go from honored to revered then from revered to exalted. Ha, that seems silly.

    Please DO NOT nerf the rev -> exalted grind on mains.... that's just RIDICULOUS and POINTLESS.........seriously, I don't care about how you deal with the alts but don't touch the main char grind.

    Killing trash has its place, and it's easy to weed out who's going to be doing something stupid in the raid when you see someone actually manage to die to it.

    Comparing it to flying made no sense. Are you high?

    Rep farming makes sense, but it's not what keeps people around giving them something to do. There's already way more to the game than that. I know you can do better than this, pleb.

    I agree with the alts 2x fast alts, but the twice as fast to exalted is broken.
    I actually agree, I wonder why they did the 2x revered - exalted speed? The alt change makes sense and is absolutely a step in the right direction however I don't see why revered - exalted needed to be tweaked for mains.

    I like that they are helping us who play with multiple alts out, but... the double rep for revered to exalted seems like a bad idea. Now I'm not one who usually agrees with the whole "lol making wow eazier for kids" crowd, but I don't see whats wrong with the current grin, at least for the first character you get to that level. I don't see why they can't simply have it so your alts gain double or triple rep once you reach exulted once.

    Blizz, I am disapoint.

    Yea, I was not looking forward to grinding exalted on more than 2 toons. But to do this only a week after game launch seems a bit excessive.

    revered to exalted is fast enough with most reputations only anglers seem broken as you only have 3 quests and 3 random fish u can do each day

    the alt change was very welcome, i wasnt sure if i wanted to level an alt with this grind now i will definitely do it

    People who HAVE A JOB and do the same thing every day don't want to log on to WoW and feel like having a 2nd job of doing the exact same things every day.

    You missed the "in an Upcoming Patch" note. That could well mean 5.1 which is months away.

    I just wish the tradeskill recipes were bind on account so I could just send them from my main and not have to worry about grinding them at all on other characters.

    Looks like it'll be easier to get Pandaren Kite mount, not that I mind!

    I think in your case this doesn't help or hurt you. For the first character rep grind stays the same. I think, I might have misunderstood... guess the facepalm I did after reading the Blue poster actually meme "Profit..." might have hit my head harder than I wanted.
