Ask a Beta Tester: This and that

Alex Ziebart

You can tell the Wrath beta is winding down, because Ask a Beta Tester has been getting a lot fewer questions lately. Because of that, we're going to be pretty short and sweet today. If you still have questions, though, keep em coming!

Let's start today off with dfsnow's question...

What's happening with Alchemy and Alchemist's Stones in WotLK? Alchemist's stones have been like enchanting rods where you need the previous one to create the next one. Are new players going to have to grind Sha'tar and then SSO rep to create the reagent they need to create their level 80 Alchemist's Stone? I don't have to tell you how hard it will be to grind Sha'tar rep with no one running BC instances any more.

The new Alchemists stones aren't tied to the older ones at all. All the new ones will require to make is the appropriate Alchemy skill, some herbs, some eternals and maybe some oils.

Johan asked...

Have you seen any Wrath quests that grant home city faction rep?

I have not.

svenhoek asked...

What happens if a Death Knight leaves the starting area before coming back to the side of the Horde/Alliance? Are they hostile to all factions?

I do not believe you actually can leave the starting area until you're supposed to do so. It's all phased and you can only go so far before you have to turn back. I'm not sure if you can get summoned out or not, but I don't imagine that'll do good things for you.

roa asked...

What's with the limited talent points upon creating a new DK? How can you get hold of all talent points up to level 55?

You earn your talent points via the Death Knight starter quests. In addition to the gold, experience, and items you normally get from quests, Death Knights will also get 1-3 talent points. This is so you don't roll up your character and the first thing you need to do is spend 45 talent points before you've ever even played the class.

szander asked...

Will you get XP for dailies in the expansion?
