Blizz specifically stated that it would not be grindable the way ICC was. We haven't seen real details on that. Any of the PTR raiders care to give more info?..

sherck wrote:So, my understanding of the new 4.2 "rep" issues....correct me where I am wrong:

-- The daily quests are tied to the Guardians of Hyjal faction and the reason you do them is to gain Marks of the World Tree. The only purpose of the Marks is to unlock vendors to buy stuff from them for gold.

-- The only things the "Marks of the World Tree" vendors sell is item level 365 gear and crafting patterns (most importantly, the 365 weapon patterns). Do I have a need to unlock these vendors for new patterns if my crafting professions are: Enchant, Scribe, JC and Alchemist? (Yes, I also have a tailor but I don't know why. I do nothing with that profession.).

-- The new faction are the Avengers of Hyjal and you only gain rep from them by killing mobs inside the Firelands instance. They fuction like a "normal" factions where as you obtain increased levels with them (friendly, honored, revered), you gain access to new gear that you can purchase with gold.

-- All of the Avengers of Hyjal gear is 378 or in the case of Exalted rings, 391.


Yes.

Yes and No. The only folks who really need to go in and gain that rep are BS, Eng, Hunters, and toons that want/need the 365 gear. (In my case it will just be my hunter-engineer.)

Yes. The speculation is that more rep is coming from the boss kills, so that gear and the other patterns may be in short supply.

Yes.

Considering Garona-Horde created groups to do that for Bastion of Twilight, I'm pretty sure I'm going to see it for Firelands.

I am 100% in support of this, because it gets more of my rings in circulation. :P


lol, however what are your thoughts on the stats they put on it?

Again, Blizz stated that they didn't want the rep to be trash-farmable, but loot is a different matter. I'll be getting in if I see one however, because I'll want the xbow and polearm.

Thanks. That's pretty awesome. I would have giggled if it had hit AND expertise.

Before 4.3 releases, I want to see a screenshot of your bank, with every slot filled with a TheckRing.

Same here. I wish they had some kind of saying/description on it.
