    • It must be an offensive action (harmful spell, harmful ability, melee attack, or ranged attack) against an enemy to receive reputation.
      • This also affects Healers who must use an offensive actions against the Lieutenant or faction leader.
  • Characters will receive reputation even if they are dead or no longer nearby as long as they are still in the zone when the enemy dies.
  • Characters will receive 200 reputation for killing a Lieutenant and all members of the winning faction will receive 200 reputation when the faction leader dies.
  • The winning team will also receive 100 reputation per friendly Lieutenant remaining.
    • Example: If there are two Lieutenants alive when the battle is won, a character will gain 200 reputation plus whatever was earned from defeating objectives plus the 200 reputation from killing the enemy faction leader (assuming the character used an offensive action against the faction leader).
  • The Trainee’s Sentinel Nightsaber and Trainee’s Outrider Wolf now require Friendly reputation with the Silverwing Sentinels and Warsong Outriders respectively (was Honored).
  • Players now have 60 minutes to complete the Ashenvale PvP event (was 30 minutes).

Reminder: Authenticator Migration
Blizzard has sent emails regarding the Authenticator Migration, reminding players to download the new Mobile App by January 5, 2024 to avoid any issues logging in.

Players that choose not to install the new app will have the authenticator removed from their account, and they will no longer be protected or able to approve login requests. The account's password will also be reset, and instructions on how to set up a new password will be sent to the registered email inbox.

Migrating An Authenticator

If you currently have your Authenticator in the Authenticator App, you should migrate to the new Mobile App now! Once you migrate to the new app you should remove the legacy Authenticator app from your device as the codes will no longer be usable. When migration becomes required on January 5, 2024, users who have not yet migrated will have their old Authenticator removed from their account and will receive a password reset to their registered email inbox. Until the Authenticator is active in the Mobile App, users will lose access to the perks associated with having an Authenticator on their account such as the Corehound pet, extra bag slots, and access to LFG features.

Managing An Authenticator

If you have never used an Authenticator, or had an old Authenticator, additional details and information on installing and setting up your Authenticator in the Mobile App can be found on our support article, Authenticator. If you need to remove an old Authenticator from your account, follow the prompts here to remove your Authenticator temporarily.

Can't Access My Account

If you are unable to access your account at all, follow the steps here to recover your account credentials.

If you no longer know the password to your account, it can be reset by following the steps on our support article, Forgot Password.


Can I use the same Authenticator Serial Number to secure more than one Account?

The Authenticator requires a phone number be attached to an account, and a phone number can only be attached to a single Account.

Can I set up the same Authenticator Serial Number in more than one smartphone?

Your unique Authenticator is tied to your mobile device and we do not support setting up the same Serial Number on more than one device.

I don't have a mobile phone number

A mobile phone number is required to set up and use the Authenticator. If you are unable to access your previous Authenticator contact support.

I'm not receiving the text message during setup Phone Notifications are designed for text-enabled mobile phones. Messaging apps like iMessage (iOS) or WhatsApp (iOS, Android) are not supported. Phone notifications cannot be used with Voice over IP (VoIP), and VoIP numbers that are transferred to a local provider are not eligible for the service.

I have a physical Authenticator. Can I still set up an authenticator in the Mobile App?

Before you can attach the mobile Authenticator you will need to remove the physical authenticator from your account.

All of these actions were for cheating or exploitation, which primarily result in permanent bans or 6-month suspensions.
