After gaining exalted with Order of the Cloud Serpent, isnt there a quest where you can gain an epic item or do you have to gain exalted with August Celestials as well.
As far as I know, Desparity, there are no such quests for Order of the Cloud Serpent, August Celestials, or Shado-Pan. The only such quests I know of are from the Klaxxi and Golden Lotus, and they reward a ring and a necklace.
Q4tQ: Maintenance. It seems often Blizzard is somewhat tight lipped about what exactly is going on with maintenance, and why it gets extended. I'd be really curious about this, myself, and I think a lot of others would. However, not having much experience in HR, I'm sure I'm missing something here. Why don't they say why, exactly, maintenance is getting extended?
Well, what would it benefit them to do so? Ultimately there's not a lot of compelling reasons to do that. I can't pretend I know why Blizzard doesn't tell us, but I can't think of a single company in a similar position that does, either. It could be as easy as "Whoops, we guessed wrong about how long this will take" or as complicated as "We ended up having to completely restore several of our servers" but in the end, we don't need to know any of that, and it's time taking away from actually doing the job of getting the servers back online for there to be someone whose job it is to tell us exactly what's wrong, if there even is anything wrong. Sometimes hotfixes take longer than expected to be applied, sometimes things break and need to be fixed, and sometimes it just takes longer than they thought.
Plus, have you been to the forums lately? People flat out accuse Blizzard of lying about listening to feedback on a forum with multiple threads of Blizzard responding to feedback.
Q4tQ; what in the vanilla heck is going on? extended maintenance is sooooooo 2005!
I already told you in the intro to this Queue that I'm sick. That's what's going on. As for extended maintenance being so 2005, I recall plenty of extended maintenance over the years. It comes and goes and is no big deal.
So in 5.2 (or whatever the next raid patch is called) will valor/justice gear still be locked behind reputation grinds?
I find it unlikely that they'll abandon the faction vendors entirely, but it's possible they could simply put new purchases on the current quartermasters. Then again, it's possible they'll introduce entirely new factions, and it's possible that a gigantic ape will kidnap Ji Firepaw and Aysa Cloudsinger will have to climb up a building dodging barrels to save him. In the end, until Blizzard announces patch 5.2, we really have no idea.
Okay, I'm off to feel like death and cuddle some cats.
Three cat pictures! Three! And you can do nothing to stop me.
