    The Shado-pan camp in Vale was still active and unharmed. The shado-pan dailies like Roll Club or the "Ready for Raiding III" stuff were still available as well. Not sure if they just haven't gotten around to removing them or not, or they are staying and that would mean most of the other achievements will still be available.

    My big question is....will there be something to kill in the area to farm the last of the sky shards? I have had terrible luck - only 4 so far....

    Tons. There's just a silly amount of Sha, and if they drop skyshards, they'll be pretty simple to AOE farm.

    Apparently it really is going away for good. I was going to say when this happens they normally change it into a Feat of Strength instead of an achievment:

    You do not not to be revered with GL to do AC and Shado Pan dailies as of 5.3

    You can simply begin doing them whenever you want now, even as a fresh 90

    Normal mobs in the vale like the sha or sha-corrupted wilflife gives 10 rep each. The rare mobs in the OP give 200 rep.

    Can't say I'm sad to see the dailies go.

    I don't understand why don't they just phase the vale?

    I'm curious how this is going to affect achievements. It seems like they took measures to allow for the One Man Army, but what about Ready for Raiding, or the one you have to do without taking any damage?

    For story. You liked the Vale like it was before? Take your anger out on Garrosh and his goons. It actually gives some people some drive to do the raid, beyond being simply more new content. It's like back when Arthas was boss of ICC and people were jacked to get a chance to face him due to his history. People will be more driven to kill Garrosh and be excited to do the new raid seeing this massacre he has caused every time they go to the Shrine.

    OT: Thanks for info Op as I still need Baolai and was wondering that.

    The dailies at the Shado-pan camp (Ready for Raiding) are still there. Guo-Lai Halls achievements will probably be made feats of strength, because they'd be impossible now anyway. The area is totally filled with Mogu now.

    Yeah I really don't get this, this isn't Garrosh's doing, it's blizzard's, Garrosh is just a fictional character, how does that make sense?

    Besides it wouldn't make any difference if it was phased untill we reached exalted with Golden Lotus, the vale would still get destroyed for everyone when they reached exalted and it would in fact be better for the story because now the people that didn't do Golden Lotus quests won't see that part of the story and if it was phased they would...

    Not to mention the achievements and mounts that are being removed with this, and I never like when they remove achievements or mounts but I think it's kinda ''ok'' if/when they are older like when they revamped ZG/ZA, but these ones are very recent, I really don't see how it makes sense to remove them already.

    Is Alani still flying around? I was thinking it might be cool if blizz put its corpse somewhere in 5.4 in the Vale and you couldn't farm it anymore. Another reason to hate Garrosh. So it would be like a world mount that was only available until the Vale got destroyed. I'm just curious and didn't see it mentioned.

    Otherwise I guess sha will be dropping skyshards now?

    Presumably the rares and the new sha/mogu still drop Skyshards.

    I've got exalted with the Golden Lotus, so I'm happy, but I may need to re-subscribe and do all the associated achievements, before they're gone!

    tbh. i love this "event" or how to speak. but keep in mind. no1 has killed smurfrosh yet. i really doubt it would ever turn out like this. but this could be "stage 2 out of 3" of the vale. who knows what happend after we actually kill him

    Though it does seem they are removing Golden Lotus forever. So no, you won't be able to get all of the achievments and items associtated with them. Kinda...sucks a lot...but a lot of people want dynamic/one time content like that. I don't, but it's probably better to keep the game interesting. Idk, can't please everyone.
    Blue post specifically states that you'll still be able to gain reputation with the Golden Lotus. Keep in mind that you can champion it so that you get rep from doing heroics and scenarios.

    Grinding on mobs and in dungeons for paltry rep gains are not what I consider enjoyable, especially on an alt. I specifically enjoyed the quests now that they aren't mandatory. A sacrifice in order to make the game feel more alive/dynamic, but I can still be unhappy about it.

    While I already feel like I don't have enough time to do everything I want in the game, it's not my place to beg them to not do something 'innovative' for the good of the game. I'm afraid many people won't see it that rationally however, and they will simply rail Blizzard for removing their daily hub.
