    Impressive Influence buff is back

    The one that gives 100% bonus rep for Legion and BFA factions. Just saw it ingame. Probably extended to at least prepatch.

    Had it disappeared? I thought it was always lasting until the prepatch?
    Do I really look like a guy with a plan?

    Yes, it ended at midnight, as was expected (they said it only would last the whole month of September), but I just noticed it being back in-game. So happy right now!

    No, the original article stated it was to stay up until the end of September. It disappeared when it turned October 1st. Looks like they brought it back until pre-patch due to what is going on.

    I'm stoked it's back! I too didn't read the original post about when it ended and just assumed it would go to prepatch. I had a bunch of class hall rep tokens I was going to send to alts, then the buff was suddenly gone and I was like "aww." Plus, I was enjoying working on the Legion paragon mounts again.

    Blizzard announced SLands being delayed to later this year and prepatch on the 13th soooooo most likely the case

    Yes it has to be 120. As for dungeons I recommend the Mechanar.

    So, tabard lets you get rep from any dungeon. There are some dungeons out there that lets you get from friendly->exalted in an hour because of a boss or another that spawns infinite adds that gives rep - not sure which ones though. You also need to be 120 AND complete one quest or another, can't remember which ones.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    Botanica is better, due to two factors: number of bosses and the fact that when you defeat the last boss you can walk straight out without having to back track.

    Don't think just prepatch, it says through the month of Oct. It's going to be going on during prepatch.

    Botanica is drastically better. It is pretty quick to run, more bosses (so bigger rep gains) and the last boss puts you at the exit so you can go back in. Mechanar has the exit at the end too, but has about 3 bosses shorter and a lot less trash along with a lot of backtracking in the instance due to the unlock mechanism.

    That's probably the case. I was just going by it coming back and quick guessing as I haven't seen an article yet.

    Both Botanica and Mechanar have 5 bosses

    I googled it and Mechanar was recommended. Others have been saying Botanica though. I’d run both Mechanar and Botanica and see which you like running better

    Mechanar has 3 bosses and 2 mini bosses that don't give boss rep. Mechanar is also recommended if you want quick clears. In the end Bot nets more.

    So I wanted to go back and add some numbers to the runs after doing them. Pulling every single mob in the instance and looting them all got me these results:

    Mechanar: 2595 rep @ 4 minutes 39 seconds which results at about 9.3 rep/sec
    Botanica: 3535 rep @ 4 minutes 58 seconds which results at about 11.9 rep/sec

    So both are pretty close, but if you want more bang per run then you'll want Botanica. You also get 10 instances per hour and with both you'll need to wait about 10 minutes before you can enter again, roughly.

    After running the example above I'm at 27,951 rep until exalted so that puts Mechanar at needing 10.8 runs while Botanica needs only 7.9 runs.
    If you are starting at 0 neutral then you are looking at 16.2 runs in Mechanar and only 11.9 in Botanica.

    that's annoying. I should've done Botanica instead of the Mechanar which was recommended to me. ah well. good to know for future runs
