I didn't bother checking my marks, "knowing" I didn't have enough, but decided to see what the refusal text was on "Calling for Reinforcements," but it allowed me to complete it and gave me the next quest in line.
I checked my main toon, my 85 which is past that, and he's now 3 World Marks short what he was this morning. Which generally leaves me confused. Everything may be working as intended, but wanted to let someone know. :)
