    The fact its only limited to legion and bfa... And not even the 8.3 factions is just a slap in the face. Blizz really trying hard to market AR.

    I honestly would rather have the XP buff continue than have this.

    The very first post evokes the timeless "slap in the face", well done.

    Naw, come on. XP bonus or atleast make it ALL reps from previous games. Not just Legion and BFA.

    I love how the reputation bonus conveniently starts right when the XP bonus ends.. HMMMMMMM...

    “Level up those alts!.. but not the allied races too don’t have from Legion because you’re new.. no you get the rep bonus later mwahahaha.”

    It's a perfect progression for newer players who have had time to level up characters with the XP Buff, but who now don't need it as they're 120 but want to learn flying like the people they see around them. Rajani/Uldum aren't required for Pathfinder, so no reason to add them for this purpose. They can do something in May-June around that if they're so inclined.

    Or, we could all just gripe about not getting what we wanted like the people who didn't need XP because they don't level alts. That is also a thing that exists.

    Meh. Thought they were extending xp. Rep is great, but I have all of the ARs unlocked except mechagnomes and I am halfway into revered. No motivation to do it really. Won't play that race ever. So yeah. Meh for me, but gratz to those who it is useful for. I think they actually heard people or something and now I am scared.

    First when I read the title I was happy, I thought: "Let's do some older reputations what I miss".

    When I read it's only BFA and Legion, I thought: "It's not so good, but it's a goos time to let's get exalted with Uldum Accord."

    When I read the * : "ARE YOU FKIN KIDDING ME???"

    Bring the XP buff back instead of this sh.t.

    Aren't AR's going to become rep independent in Shadowlands anyways? Why bother farming? Having many alts ready for the next xpack is one thing. This seems a little more sinister, because more new AR characters, but without the xp buff, means either more race changes or character boosts...

    Yes. Just extend the XP buff.

    I think the planned idea behind this is first to let people level up and then boost them with allied races reputations.

    Great, I already got everything unlocked. I mean, I guess I can go ahead and just finish Pathfinder Part 2, but meh. With the announcement that all allied races will require no unlock come Shadowlands, are people going to bother even with 100% buff?

    With those restrictions, it's pretty useless... Why not apply it to ALL reps?? The Winds of Wisdom didn't just apply to Legion and BfA rep gains...

    I'd rather keep the XP buff, honestly.
