City Tabards and BC Dungeons

(Locked)

So, my lowbie druid bought his TB tabard as soon as the patch hit, and used it from 50 to now 67. In the dungeons prior to Burning Crusade dungeons, he received rep for most of the mobs in the dungeon. As soon as I started to do the BC dungeons, my rep with TB hasn't gone up.

Trade chat is filled with knowitall knownothings, and just say 'It works, stfu'. So, is this as intended? Do they only work in 1-60 dungeons? Or 1-60, 70-80? I haven't bothered testing it on other toons as it doesn't bother me too much. Just wonderin' if it's meant that way or not..

Thaanks.

Unlike vanilla and WotLK instances, TBC's instances are connected in what rep you gain from them. I believe this is still intended. You should be able to gain rep again in WotLK instances.

Probably intentional as BC dungeons have specific reps, however according to the text they should, in theory, work the same way as anywhere else.

That's the general consensus, yeah. But as the tabard reads, 'all rep gains while in the dungeon will be applied to ___'. AFAIK, Vanilla and WotLK dungeons for the most part don't offer any other rep gains throughout. BC is actually the only set of dungeons that offer rep. According to the tooltip, BC dungeons should be the ONLY dungeons that apply to the tabard... But that's just me.

Pretty much true. You cannot "Champion" a reputation for two factions at the same time.

60-70 all have reputations tied to each dungeon, regular and heroic, and when you do them you get the respective reputation. The only reputation he could have received would be from the factions linked to the dungeons.

This is in fact not true (the WOTLK part) the lich king instances are not awarding proper honor either and I believe that this is in fact a bug and not intended. It has been reported as a bug and we will have to see what happens as far as that goes.

Seams kind of silly to me to only allow it in nilla instances since you don't stay there for a long period of time. With the new quests and such very few people are actually chain instancing anymore which kind of puts a damper on this.

What they should do is make it so that QUESTS give you reputation toward the city's tabard that you are wearing.

They hot fixed Lich King instances like back on the 24th. I got to exalted with LK heroics. BC dungeons remain intentionally not giving reputation for the above stated reasons that they already do give rep for other factions.

Well. Thanks for the answers lol. Druid's just about at wotlk level, so I'll get over it.

If you are wearing one of the new faction tabards (e.g. Thunder Bluff, Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Ironforge, etc.), you will only receive reputation gains for that city/faction when in Classic (1-60), Wrath of the Lich King (80 and Heroics), and Cataclysm (80-85) dungeons. Outland dungeons will not currently provide reputation gains for the "home city" faction you are championing; this is intended.

Also, just as a heads up, if dungeon mobs and bosses are trivial to you, you will receive less reputation than if they are within your level range. This is just to ensure that players who exceed the dungeon's intended level range can still benefit from championing a specific faction, but aren't given a distinct advantage over those who are of the appropriate level and are unable to solo the content. This should also help encourage players to improve their reputation in dungeons more appropriate for their level, rather than running lower level content solely for the reputation (which isn't a bad thing by any means; we just want you to enjoy the content designed for your level range, too). :)

I call Horde favouritism. You said Thunder Bluff first.

If you are wearing one of the new faction tabards (e.g. Thunder Bluff, Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Ironforge, etc.), you will only receive reputation gains for that city/faction when in Classic (1-60), Northrend (70-80), and Cataclysm (80-85) dungeons. Outland dungeons will not currently provide reputation gains for the "home city" faction you are championing; this is intended.



Why?


Yeah, I'm kind of curious myself. Why is that?

Because Outland dungeons provide reputation for the factions in Outland. Specific Dungeons are tied to Specific Factions.

Seems to for me, on heroic anyway. I've been gaining rep with Gilneas just fine for several days now.

It says that we get rep for 70-80, yet I've been wearing my tabard in all the dungeons I do, and I'm not getting a single rep gain from any mob inside the dungeons. Is it only working for heroics? I don't understand. I've done numerous ones, from nexus, UK, AZ, DTK, etc. No rep. At all. Can anyone clarify this for me?

We already went over this...because you get "other" rep instead...

Yeah, this makes sense. My mage has the Bilgewater tabard equipped and he's gained rep in Wrath heroics.
