    Hyjal trash loot, 2.2 Undocumented changes.

    New Hyjal Summit/Black Temple trash loot
    US players started raiding, and a few items dropped from the trash. I'm also adding the Illidari Runeshield here because according to the itemID, it's more than likely a trash loot too. (but I could be wrong on this one, it could drop from the illidari council or another encounter). [item=32428] and [item=32897] are also dropping from trash.

    Black Temple and Hyjal Summit trash mobs are now sharing loot tables, including new loots in Black temple, and "old" loots in Hyjal (BT Trash loot, patterns, etc ...)



    Great items right ? You're already planning to form a small raid to farm trash only and get all the shiny epics right ? You can't.

    There are indeed protections put in place that should make it extremely difficult for very small groups of players to activate the Battle of Mount Hyjal event and be rewarded with either reputation or items from killing the incoming enemy creatures before the players suffer a defeat. Whenever an enemy wave spawns, there's a check done to see if you've killed enough of the enemy creatures. If you haven't, then loot/rep is disabled for that wave of spawns. If you have killed enough, then that wave and further waves of creatures leading up to the next boss have loot/reputation.

    Under relatively normal conditions where a full raid is attempting to fight through the enemy waves of creatures to defeat a boss, all creatures past the first wave should reward reputation and have a chance at item loot.

    These kinds of protections were necessary so as to not promote the creation and activation of large numbers of Hyjal instances, which could lead to performance problems for the server.
    Reputation
    Trash monsters : 2-3 Reputation points.
    Frostwyrms : 15 Reputation points.
    Bosses : 200 Reputation points.
    Archimonde : 500 Reputation points.

    The huge nerf of Archimonde's reputation reward basically made the reputation rewarded during a full clean of Hyjal Summit lower (about 100 points) than in 2.1.

    Pics of the new broom graphic. It's Harry Potter-ish now rather than a flat broom.

    The tanking cloak is excellent news. Until now there was no tanking cloak in BT / MH, only the pheonix-cloak which drops from A'lar. For guilds like mine where we no longer raid TK / SSC I was kind of worried as there was no way I could upgrade my blue cloak. I expected them to include a new tanking cloak in Zul'Aman but this is good news to know that the developers pick up on itemisation gaps.
