Patch 5.0.4: Account-Wide Achievements, Tier 13 Bonuses
2012/08/29 at 1:17 PM
We're taking a closer look at the new account-wide achievement system and some other changes we found while playing yesterday. Highlights include:
Realm-first titles are account-wide, like Death's Demise. Blizzard stated in the past that they weren't in favor of doing this, so this is a big surprise.
Dragon Soul is up to the 35% buff and
Glory of the Dragon Soul Raider
no longer requires
Heroic: Spine of Deathwing
Heroic: Madness of Deathwing
Many Tier 13 set bonuses changed in light of the talent tree revamp.
Have Group, Will Travel and flask guild perks are gone.

Wowhead's Patch 5.0.4 Guide
2012/08/28 at 12:46 PM
5.0.4 is live today and we have an extensive guide to everything new! While there's no new raids or gear in this patch, many things will keep you busy. Class abilities, talent trees, and glyphs have been drastically changed, so it's good there's a month before Mists of Pandaria to familiarize yourself with the changes! If achievement-hunting is more your thing, all achievements are account-wide in 5.0.4, as well as many mounts, pets, and titles.
Below, you'll find consolidated versions of our 5.0.4 feature coverage, as well as patch notes, videos, class guides, and links to blue posts.
Patch Notes and Overview
The talent system received an extensive overhaul: players get one talent every 15 levels now, for 6 maximum in MoP. Specialization and core class abilities have changed as well.
Prime glyphs are removed and many new minor vanity glyphs are added.
Achievements are now account-wide and some can even be completed across characters. In addition, many mounts, pets, and titles are account-wide as well.

Mists of Pandaria: LFR Changes
2012/08/23 at 11:54 AM
There's been a lengthy thread on the official forums about LFR, and Blizzard shared some of their upcoming changes for Mists of Pandaria:
They are hoping gear designed for LFR in future tiers is a small step up from last tier's normal mode gear, not a replacement for last tier's heroic gear.
If harder bosses on normal\/heroic difficulty have an ilvl boost to reflect that difficulty, that ilvl boost will not apply to end-boss loot in LFR.
Terrace of Endless Spring
Heart of Fear
LFR were initially three queues to be released on the same date, a month after MoP's release. Instead these three LFR queues will have a staggered release, one week after the other.
Hello my fellow non-murloc creatures of Azeroth,
Please allow me to chip in with a few updated bits of information about LFR, I hope that you view this as an improvement and a step in the right direction over the current version of LFR. We do hear you and your feedback is seriously taken into consideration each time we decide to apply any change to the game.
We know that competitive players seem to dislike the idea of having to go through LFR to
Mists of Pandaria Faction Guide: The Lorewalkers
2012/08/21 at 2:46 PM
Gaining reputation with
is an unusual process. Instead of completing dailies or zone quests like most other Pandaren factions, players gain reputation by visiting monuments, completing achievements, and hearing folktales. If you have an organized path in mind, hitting Exalted should only take a few hours with a flying mount!
As the keepers of Pandaren culture,The Lorewalkers go hand-in-hand with the spirit of Archaeology. The unusual reputation grind fits the nature of these cultural librarians, and reputation rewards enhance this profession. Check out our beta article on archaeology changes here!
In Patch 5.2, players can complete an additional three scrolls on the

Lore made a video showing the reputation process--hunting down monuments in the world and then watching the unlocked story!
