5.1 PTR: Legendary and Faction Quests
2012/11/20 at 11:51 AM
Since we last covered new quests in 5.1, there's been some big updates we wanted to share about legendary and faction quests. We datamined some possible rewards for the legendary chain in 5.1, including new gems and sockets. We also pieced together more of the epic 5.1 faction questlines and now know that they reward players with a mount!
There are upgraded versions of legendary gems:
Refined Crystallized Dread
Refined Crystallized Horror
Refined Crystallized Terror
Eye of the Black Prince
allows you to add another gem socket to your Sha-Touched weapon, similar to
Living Steel Belt Buckle
. These are for regular gems, not additional legendary gems.
Since we last covered the datamined quests, Blizzard has trimmed down the PvP requirements. Instead of winning 10 Battlegrounds, you only have to win one in

We have a preview of a new Blizzard Store mount today, as well as blue posts on bringing back PvP gear for transmog purposes, the

5.1 Epic Warlock Questline, LFR Open and Elegon Hotfixes

We've got some details to share with you about an epic
-only quest chain datamined on the PTR, but first, some raid info!
The second half of

It requires ilvl 460 to queue up for both parts of the zone. All six LFR bosses have ilvl 476 loot.
The first LFR run for each segment rewards 0

Mists of Pandaria: Reputation Quick Facts (Updated for 5.4)
2012/09/30 at 12:39 PM
This guide provides quick facts for every Mists of Pandaria faction: where their quartermaster is located, how to gain reputation, and rewards. You can visit Wowhead's faction pages for more information, as well as our reputation guides, which have been updated for 5.4.
Eight factions originally shipped with Mists of Pandaria: four have epic gear rewards, while the other four have quirky vanity items. All have epic mounts and detailed tabards as Exalted rewards.
In later patches, two factions have been added for the Alliance and Horde (four total), as well as a raid-related faction and Timbermaw-style reputation grind.
Reputations are a bit different to grind in Mists of Pandaria--the old system of equipping a tabard and farming dungeons has been removed. Tabards only serve vanity purposes now and reputation is gained by doing daily quests. Each faction has a compelling story behind it and the daily quests are interesting and varied, such as completing a racecourse on a cloud serpent.
Patch 5.4 Reputation Changes
Justice Point and Valor Point gear no longer requires reputation and has undergone cost changes.

Mists of Pandaria: Quest and Dungeon Weapons Preview
2012/08/18 at 1:08 PM
We're continuing our visual previews of Mists of Pandaria weapons today with a look at 3D models of quest and dungeon weapons! Check out our PvP post for a look at all the
PvP weapon models
and click on the images to view them in our Flash 3D Modelviewer.
Models are still being assigned to beta weapons and some color variations may not make it to live, but you can use the View 3D option on all
Mists of Pandaria weapon pages
to see what a particular weapon looks like in the latest beta build. Right now, there aren't any parallels between weapon stats and model colors, like there are with some armor sets.
