5.1 Double Rep Question

General Discussion
I've never seen this actually addressed, i.e. anyone has checked for sure, so I want to ask in vain hope that a Blue sees it and has a clear answer.

Do the tokens that grant your account double rep apply to both factions AND across servers?

I have an alliance 90 with a lot of reps at revered and I just want to know if I get the tokens if it will apply to my horde characters on a different server.

I.E. how account wide is it?

So many things that are account based (anything that is BoA) are purely per server; yet we have mounts/pets that are actually account wide.

I just want clarity on this.

I've tried checking myself on PTR, but I'm one of the 'lucky' ones where the game thinks my PTR account is without MoP so I can't log into the 90's I copied to PTR to test.
Once unlocked, the double reputation gains should affect your characters across servers much the same way that account-wide pets are accessible to all characters on the account. All your Horde characters will share the same reputation gain bonus.

Bah, blues always answer pertinent questions about game issues, but they NEVER respond to my questions about Warcraft/Twilight crossover fanfic! So biased!
Awesome, thanks so much!
Does this rep gain also work for rep in the negative?
Like with bloodsail, brood, or booty bay group?

They may not have addressed it because it is rolling out in 5.1 for the MoP factions only and if it works well, then expand it. I would expect them to address it then.

Currently the only reps this will apply to is the MoP ones. They haven't said if they're going to add in older reps in the future.

It requires getting a token from the quartermaster of said rep in MoP.

I have another question if Rygarius is still around:

Does double rep with, for example, Tillers apply to the sub-rep farmers? Or is only the primary rep?

Please, shoot me now. DO NOT WANT
The big question I have, will it affect all reps, like will all quartermasters gain this item? Old xpacs and such.
The tokens are in the 5.1 files. I can't get in PTR to test it though.

Not currently. Only MoP reps in 5.1

The double reputation gains work with the primary faction for sure. I'll check with our developers (if they haven't left for the weekend) regarding sub-factions.

You let them out for the weekend?

They have to go home to study up on Warcraft/Twilight crossover fanfic issues so they can pass that info along to Rygarius. :D
While we're talking about this, I've been wondering why while I have 169 mounts on Alliance side, I only have 98 on Horde side. I created a Horde character (now level 67) and he has access only to mounts that are available to both factions. None of the Horde faction mounts are available. I would have thought that the equivalent mounts would be available just like when you faction change. I have the old school ride achievement, but no mount to show for it on horde side.
I also have a question: Will earning Revered with Operation Shieldwall allow you to earn 2x rep with Dominance Offensive and vice versa? A lot of achievements award their cross-faction equivalent, and I was wondering if it applies here as well.
Anything that has races listed won't be there on the other side unless you've explicitly gained it for that side.

I.E. the city mounts, that you mentioned, you still need to gain normally, under the account mount system.

Mounts like the Travelers Tundra Mammoth that is, oddly, faction specific (there is actually a visual difference), won't be there on both factions; you have to buy it twice.

The Hodir mounts, PvP mounts (that aren't achievement gained), Vault mount, among many many others, have to be earned individually.

The 100 mount one SHOULD reward both though; for horde however it wasn't that special since it was just a dragonhawk like you could get from the Sunreavers.

All this could result in a pretty large disparity in mount counts.

I don't see your account as having any Horde specific mounts. Have you purchased any Horde mounts?
