Why is it only MoP factions getting this bonus and not all of them?

I still dont understand why rep is not account wide. There is plenty of content available to keep me playing on my alts without having to do the dailys and grind rep, so why should i have too just to spend my VP?

THis just makes no sense to me!

I agree. I'm changing mains and servers and I was looking forward to this change to make rep grinding old factions more bearable.

Question, and I apologize if this was in the past 86 pages: is there a way to check that you have the "buff" on all your toons? For example, I have 4 toons exalted with Tillers. If I buy it on one, then forget that I did (just saying, there's a lot of factions, I forget things), then can I "check" to see if I already have that one? I know it's cheap, but I just don't want to do it again and again because I'm dumb.


I don't know. But can't you just buy them all at once, so that you don't forget, and then never worry about it again?

I guess you could always do one daily quest to test it.

That's what I've done... but I'm more worried about those toons that I'm working on the same faction for (i.e. I have two working on Klaxxi, one working one shado pan, one on august celestials, 3 on anglers). If I forget on one, then I'm likely to keep forgetting... Just me being dumb, was just hoping there was a way to "see" that you get the extra other than turn in and test

This does nothing for my main, the only toon i dare to suffer the boring quests with.

Did you purchase AND use the Grand Commendation from the Shado-Pan quartermaster?

This is what you'll need to open up the benefits to all your characters on your account (e.g. Grand Commendation of the Order of the Cloud Serpent).


I just used one for the tillers on this character. Is there a way to tell on the UI if the faction is receiving boosted reputation gains? I checked the reputaiton window and put the rep on the tracker, but as far as I can tell, there doesn't appear to be any indicator in the UI.

edit: I just checked the august celestials, which I am not exalted and there doesn't appear to be any indicator.

Maybe add a golden frame around the reputation progress bar and tracker, and/or a tooltip that says something on mouseover like the rested experience tooltip?

You know, just to jazz it up a bit. :)

I bought the Tillers one today and learned it on this toon. Logged over to my pally to do her farm (with rep tracking on in the chat box), got the message along the lines of '110 Tillers rep (55.0 bonus rep)' in blue each time I picked a plant. Didn't have the rep bar up on the UI, so I can't say how it registered on there each time :/

This is not what we were "promised". Double rep on Panderian factions will do not good if I burn out while leveling my alts through the first 85 levles of rep grinding.


Actually they said from the get go that it would probably only be for MoP factions at the beginning with others to possibly be added later. And you don't "need" to grind out the old factions right away not like they have rewards that are "needed" for end game....

And I agree there needs to be some way to tell when you have bought the commendation from the faction and used it. I actually created a post on it, but with all the other complaints about this patch it was off the front page in about 10 seconds.

Indeed. How do we know which factions we bought the commendation for and which ones we did not? This is a shameful oversight to what blue is championing as their big relief improvement for the rep grind.

I think calling it a "shameful oversight" is a little much. The whole "buy an item" to begin with was just because they wanted you to feel like you did something to enable it, not just "hey look, I have double honor now." Though that does not mean I don't wish there was something in the UI telling it.

Drama club auditions are across the hall, but I wouldn't get your hopes up, with that kind of overacting.

Here's how you make this a total non-issue:
1. Next time you log in, buy commendations for every faction for which you are at least revered on at least one character.
2. Next time you do a quest that gives you normal reputation and bumps you up to revered, buy a commendation for that faction.

That's it. You don't have to remember anything at all.

Good. I am only able/willing to do dailies for one char (or 10-20 over mutiple chars) in a day at the absolute most. And this might make it possible to still get some rep gear for alts.

Then don't buy the commendations, and do the daily quests in greys.

I'm revered with 4 factions. I've bought 2 (or maybe 3) of the tokens yesterday, but I don't remember which ones. How do I know which ones I still need to buy?


Do a daily and see if you get the bonus for that faction when you turn in a quest. If you dont, you didnt get it yet.

Even with the rep bonus, having to do the grinds again to gear my alts, still feels tedious and annoying...I mean, it's not a bad idea, and it's an okay compromise. And at least can get it done in half the time, but it's still going to take a while.
