Today I thought it'd be fun to go back and look at the very first The Queue, back when it was called Ask a Beta Tester. The first edition of Ask a Beta Tester was written on July 29th, 2008 (almost three years ago), by then Editor-in-Chief Elizabeth Harper. It mainly dealt with Death Knights and Dalaran. In total, there were 77 editions of Ask a Beta Tester.
Ask a Beta Tester became The Queue on November 15th, 2008. Since then, there have been 640 editions of The Queue, for a total of (including today) 718 AaBT/Queues written. At an average of just over 4 questions answered per-edition, that's about 2,832 questions answered.
Today, let's add a few more...
Did anything ever come of Blizz's pre-Cata promises that later tier bosses will require more hit than the earlier ones?
Not a word. I wouldn't at all be surprised to see it forgotten about. That kind of handicap seems to be contrary to current design. Maybe on a hard mode or something like that though ...
Will Blizzard ever add any other way to gain rep with the kitty people aside from the 2 daily quests and a tabard? It's hard to find the time to run a dungeon these days with my current work schedule and with just those dailies it's taking me forever to become exalted.
I doubt it -- earning rep from dungeon runs seems to be the preferred way to earn rep now for starting (expansion) factions. I know in your case that might be hard. Then again, if I were you, I might try to focus on something that's a little more doable for the amount of time you can play the game.
How EXACTLY (every possible way) is guild rep earned?
Only three ways, that I know of and have found while researching:
- Quest turn-ins
- Guild group boss kills
- Guild group PVP
