While I was waiting for patch 3.0.2 to arrive, one of the things I did was farming reputation – for fun, and for the achievements. I got myself Exalted with all five Alliance factions, Exalted with Cenarion Circle and Argent Dawn, and I’d farmed 34K rep of the 39K I needed for Exalted with Timbermaw Hold.

Off I trot today to finish off Timbermaw rep and get myself not one but two Achievements (plus a new title) – and I discover the rumor was right. Timbermaw faction handins now give twice as much rep.

Oh, furbolgs, why couldn’t you have been this easy to please a fortnight ago?

I’m so glad I held onto those almost 200 feathers and beads :) Now I only need about another 100 feathers/beads instead of over 400!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news; I knew you and Wildence had been farming like crazy the past couple of weeks :( Hopefully the other old-world reps you’re after will also have doubled :)

Unlucky :( However, if I may take a silver lining from your unfortunate situation, I’m glad to know that when (if) I decide to grind rep, it wouldn’t be as painful as I originally thought.

/hug I’m really not sure what else to say since this is quite the bummer. Oh – and DTW.

Ooh, I’m sorry!! I am still need to rep with them. I killed a Furbolg once when I was leveling, over there in Azshara and they’ve been angry with me ever since!! Those critters have a long, long memory. I think I’m something like unfriendly with them right now. I’m exalted with the other two factions for that title, so I’m going to go work on it.

omg really thank you for the post, cause that would of made me cry if I farmed more then needed. But honestly I did this grind on my warlock way back when you got 75 rep per turn in.. they’ve doubled it twice now.. 300 rep.. this is cake, and a joke. blizz is taking all the fun out of grinding >.>
