What's the polite and diplomatic way to tell your boss:

"I don't want my photograph taken and sent to our sister center. I don't want to answer personal questions, no matter how harmless, and have that sent to our sister center. I don't like the majority of people over there, and whether or not they know what I look like has no bearing on my job - especially since they're in CO and we're in AZ. Whether or not they know what my biggest accomplishment is, or what's on my iPod also has no bearing on my job. So no, I don't want to participate. Because frankly, it's stupid."

had to clean after someone else's shit -- so fed up with work orders that if the pope himself were to come to me and ask me to plug the rj45 cable of his ip phone to a network drop in exchange for irrefutable proof of god's existance, I'd say no.

Earning reputation with various factions has long been an important part to World of Warcraft and as time has gone on, we've made tweaks and changes to the system to make it more interesting and to give players access to unique items. For example, we recently hotfixed the game to apply a change to some reputation items which you can read about in our recently updated blog that allows players to purchase certain items much sooner. And we're not done!

Coming in a future patch, earning reputation is going to become much more fluid. Basically, once one of your characters has reached at least Revered reputation with a faction, all other characters on the same Battle.net account will then earn reputation with the same faction at twice the rate. Going one step further, and as an added bonus, your main character who reached Revered will also begin to earn double the reputation as he or she climbs to Exalted.

Here's a simplified break down:

Any single character earns Revered reputation with a faction
All other characters on the Battle.net account begin to earn double reputation for that one same faction
The Revered character earns double reputation as he or she works toward Exalted
???
Profit

We’ll keep you posted as this change is closer to being implemented. In the meantime, we’d love to hear your feedback!

Technically, its a success, i just posted it as a follow-up to Flex' post on the rep changes, from a couple of pages back

I just happened to post from my iPad on the go and it ate my formatting...

Got Stone Guard down and used one of my elder coins and won the spirit helm. Was pretty hyped until I walked over to the corpse and saw the same helm also on the boss. Doh. At least I didn't have to use dkp for it I guess.

Edit: and for the sake of not double posting it's the third raid night of the expansion and I already want to stop raiding. And my guild wants to do 25s.. haha yeah right..

Tried DPS'ing Shado-pan without reading any strat first. We one-shot everything, but...

Good point for Blizz though: I intuited a lot from what the adds before the bosses did, and the rest was standart practice.

I've done every heroic except Scarlet Monastery and Gate of the Setting Sun, and went in all of them blind. I know that feeling.

After having been Raid lead 4 years and being the only one KNOWING the fights coming in, I just can't get why people wouldn't want to spend 15 minutes to avoid that feeling (and the RL's ulcer).

Usually I do prefer to know. But then I'd not get around to running the instances for ages - in this case I was asked to come along by guildies so said okay, and didn't have time to research.

Definately would know at least the Dungeon Journal summaries before trying a raid boss.

You can't replace someone who drops group or requeue when you're in a scenario. That's pretty damn lame. but I did duo it with a nice priest, i think we had a thing going, i'll look for his/her missed connection.


also 100 rep per daily makes me wanna cry deeply. everything about this in comparison to previous expansions feels draining.

100? Which ones are those? (I haven't been paying attention, but noticed Klaxxi gives relatively low 143 per.)

I've already started feeling burned out on dailies, so started not doing them all every day...

gaining the shado-pan dailies at a quarter past midnight didn't do my sleep schedule any good.

A good bunch of the Klaxxi, Golden Lotus, Tillers, and maybe Anglers but I can't remember are what you said, 143, but I rounded down because it's not even 150.

I even used that Hozen Peace Pipe for 1k rep to all reps and it still feels like I didn't do shit.

Have they hotfixed it yet? Pipe is being nerfed to 100 rep for the gear factions and 1000 to the rest.

It is pretty annoying. Tillers goes faster because there are so many rep sources, but Klaxxi is slooow. There are things Blizz could have made it easier with - Guo-Lai Cache Keys open chests with Golden Lotus rep tokens inside, but they're phased out below Revered; and Dread Amber Shards (250 rep for 20) would be great if the drop rate wasn't so low as to be unfarmable.

Oh, and I found an extra Klaxxi daily the other day that I didn't know about, but I think it requires two people. In the Gurthani ruins area (with the spiders), there's a place with a green and a red rune on the ground - you /lie on green and /kneel on red to summon a mob that drops a quest item. Pretty sure it was daily, it rewarded valor.

They reverted that change and slapped a 7 day cooldown on the pipe instead.

Yes, it requires two people to summon the dude to kill. I haven't exactly figured out what causes it to be available though. I think it may be a time of day/night.

Our server is dead :(

At least if you believe the ranting of some of the self proclaimed "hardcore raiding guilds" that find the +/-500 geared/experienced players on horde side not to meet their standards, because they either only have normal/LFR experience or are not willing/able to raid 4-5 nights a week for 4-5 hours...

Hey, Blizzard decided along time ago that US servers appearently need all the support they can get in order to secure World Firsts, even if it includes postponing non-US patches/fixes/updates.
