Upcoming Reputation Changes

Community Manager
Earning reputation with various factions has long been an important part to World of Warcraft and as time has gone on, we've made tweaks and changes to the system to make it more interesting and to give players access to unique items. For example, we recently hotfixed the game to apply a change to some reputation items which you can read about in our recently updated blog that allows players to purchase certain items much sooner. And we're not done!

Coming in a future patch, earning reputation is going to become much more fluid. Basically, once one of your characters has reached at least Revered reputation with a faction, all other characters on the same Battle.net account will then earn reputation with the same faction at twice the rate. Going one step further, and as an added bonus, your main character who reached Revered will also begin to earn double the reputation as he or she climbs to Exalted.

Here's a simplified break down:

  • Any single character earns Revered reputation with a faction
  • All other characters on the Battle.net account begin to earn double reputation for that one same faction
  • The Revered character earns double reputation as he or she works toward Exalted
  • ???
  • Profit

  • We’ll keep you posted as this change is closer to being implemented. In the meantime, we’d love to hear your feedback!

    What about players with alts on different accounts? Isn't this encouraging them to transfer the toons to one account and cancel the others?

    This sounds quite fascinating but i have a feeling this might get degraded becouse if it works with all other charcters and not just the one who got revered status however to that end it would still be a good thing to have becouse i have a feeling rep grinding in mists is going to take quite some time

    Less grinding? I don't think too many people - except the truly Insane - will object to this.

    Are there any plans to implement a similar system for guild rep? For example, if I have my main toon at Exalted rep for my guild, would that mean all my alts could gain guild rep at a faster rate?

    This is a great change, thank you!

    Can you clarify if this will work with all factions, or just new Mists of Pandaria factions? I'm looking at you, Hydraxian Waterlords.

    You really need to roll this out as soon as possible.

    I am leveling an alt and I know a few others who are and the thought of doing those dailies with the current rep rewards is depressing.

    It is tough enough dealing with the grind you made leveling a character and looking forward to even more grind when you hit 90 is not fun to think about.

    I think I love you... this is part of the reason I got lazy with alts and love BoA stuff. This is like 50 million times better than BoA stuff...

    Is this for all reputations across the game or only reputations added with MoP?

    This is a nice change, overall, but I think that the double reputation gains on the original character to Exalted is unnecessary. Why don't you just half the required rep. to exalted if you want to make it faster?

    Or even just leave it alone. The double gains for alts after main hits revered is enough in my opinion.

    Will this work with Warsong Gulch reps as well?

    on a serious note this makes it nicer for those insane folks like me who enjoy lots of alts

    Still don't get it.

    So with the patch, the second you hit revered, you start getting 2x the rep from quests? Is that what I'm reading correctly?

    Don't get me wrong, the alt thing is huge, but this can be equally huge.

    Yeah, that's my only question. I don't think the main character getting double rep gains is really necessary. If it is, then the revered -> exalted stretch was poorly designed to begin with, really.
