Patch 5.1: Brawler's Guild Guide
2012/12/07 at 6:22 PM
This guide provides an overview of Brawler’s Guild in Warlords of Draenor—rewards, achievements, bosses, and more. To learn more about strategies for each boss, check out the
Brawler's Guild Rank 1 - 8 Strategy Guide
The Brawler's Guild is designed to provide players with solo challenges that test their DPS and situational awareness. Players fight various well-loved bosses with quirky abilities to gain ranks in the Guild, earning titles and vanity items as prizes. While gaining an invitation to participate in the Guild is exclusive, any player can gather around the Brawl areas and watch their friends learn the new bosses.
This guide covers how to obtain an invitation, the guild locations, vendors, all the bosses and their abilities, how to complete the achievements, vanity items, and fun touches like tribute NPCs to

Patch 5.1: Vanity Items and Undocumented Changes
2012/12/07 at 12:08 PM
Patch 5.1 has some big content additions to be sure--new factions, tons of battle pets, the Brawler's Guild--but there's many new vanity items hidden around Pandaria. Check out the items, transmogrification additions, and disguises we found, including
Sun-Lute of the Phoenix King
which was datamined in Cataclysm but only found its way now to the BMAH.
We also have a few undocumented changes based on a thread

Yesterday, we sat down with Lead Quest Designer Dave Kosak and asked him about some experimental content choices in 5.1, as well as contested topics such as Mists of Pandaria's daily quest system. We previously

5.1 Site Features: New Tooltips and Item Upgrades
2012/11/30 at 5:25 PM
Over this past week, the Wowhead team has implemented new site tools reflecting 5.1 changes: many Item Upgrade tools and redesigned tooltips!
Upgrading an item via currency is a unique feature added in 5.1 in which players can
permanently upgrade all ilvl 458+ gear by 8 ilvls
. It's not really obvious to calculate how an item will scale up, so we designed a bunch of tools to help you out!
Item Comparison Tool
now supports Item Upgrades. An "Upgrade" option has been added to the item menu (click on the icon to access), which will automatically adjust the tooltip and all the stats. Go to
to get started!
Search results now display an "Upgrades" column between "Req." and "Side." This column displays icons if the item can be upgraded, and mousing over an icon shows an upgraded version for easy reference. There is also a new search filter: [url=

Today's news round up covers new Blizzard features for scenarios and pet battles, information on just how exactly some of the old-world bosses were nerfed for soloing purposes, and insights into why LFR no longer shows you progress status when joining. We also have some information on new scenario rewards: some epics and recolored armor for transmog fun.
Updated Scenario Loot

While the 476 items have the same color scheme as the old 463 items for that role, the 450 items have a different color scheme. So if you were say a
