i wonder who was trying to get some usage of this
Again, what is the reason? Why? Why changes something without ever talking about it?
Weird decision, but hardly impactful.
This really is one of those things where you look at it and ask, "Why, Blizzard?" So many other bugs in the game to fix, and they do something about an 8 year old rep grind.
Okay, does that affect the account wide commendations you can buy that increases rep earned for those factions by 100% for your alts?
But will the bonus rep gained for alts still exist? I think that's the most important part of mists rep really. Is that item you use to gain rep faster for alts - if that's even needed.
That bonus rep was actually pretty handy for my jewelcrafter for the panther mount recipes. made 2 jc's and was exalted with order of the cloud serpent within days . I can see why they would remove it though . My first time i used it was in mop and then i ignored the system all the way to bfa (when i made my new void elf hunter and chose to deck her out just like my original hunter so i can swap one to a busier server but didnt wanna lose the proff on the main server) That rep was amazing on my void elf hunter cause i did it during a panda tw event where there was also the 50% rep added . was crazy lol The rep is easy anyways so ur not gonna be really missing out but im glad i took advantage of it with my 2 jc's b4 the change :)
I don't know why people are upset by this. Unless you are in the level range, it doesn't work and you won't be exalted unless you turn off Exp and farm out in level.It's just muc faster to farm out rep via timewalking weeks instead.
While this isn't a major removal, I have to wonder why or even how someone at Blizzard remembered this feature existed to remove it. There are so many other things that are just as minor but are actually broken, why not fix some of those? For example, Warlord Zon'ozz in Dragon Soul has used the wrong voice clip when you enter his encounter area for years now (he repeats his aggro voice clip instead of using the correct one). I even reported it as a bug once, still hasn't been fixed.But I guess removing features, even minor ones like this, is more important to 2020 Blizzard than fixing bugs.
oh i thought they were taking out the item that gives 100% more rep for alts. yeah this is fine, but still, no one asked for this
I completely forgot this existed, which just goes to show how worthless it really is in the modern game.
I don't think anyone used this. The most efficient rep methods for every MoP rep don't even use this feature anyway I believe.
it may not matter for top level characters, but this was a feature that allowed low level characters to get pandaria reps. this is very inconsiderate (to put it mildly) for blizzard to remove it without sufficient notice. it took up to 140 days of daily dungeons to get exalted with these factions. i am 3000/21000 with one now meaning i have run 80 days of daily dungeons in vain...
Yep, with Chromie time rep systems ought to be comparable. I wish they used the tabard system more. Like if you reach exalted you can buy an account blind tabard for alts that gives a small rep bonus when worn.
Makes sense. It was an outlier on the reputation sheet. Sort of vestigial from the state of MoP rep grinding.
