Happy 8th anniversary, everyone!

ericw3101 asked:

Is anyone else upset that all we got for 8th anniverary was the same xtra xp/rep buff? I mean I'm only getting one extra point of rep for Black Prince kills, instead of 11 per mogu, it's now 12. Does anyone else miss anniverary pets? Or is there a good reason they gave us this instead of a tabard, or vanity item, or cool companion pet. I feel really let down by Blizz.

Yeah, it's a bit of a bummer! Even the text in the letter was copy-pasted from a previous year (whoops). I'm sure they had their reasons, but it still stinks.

jatt2613 asked:

Along with the scenario question, is there any way to kick someone coming in 5.1? Just the other day I (on my rogue) joined a scenario with a mage and a warrior, and the warrior immediately said "BRB" and went AFK. We did almost the entire scenario and were on the last part before he came back. I would have liked to have been able to kick him, both so that we wouldn't have to two-man the entire thing and so that he wouldn't be rewarded for our work without helping, but there's no option to do so. That irked me even more because it's a scenario: the queue times are so short that there's no reason to queue if you think you might have to be AFK in the next few minutes.

Yes, the kick function is coming to scenarios in 5.1.

gamer4279 asked:

Why do the grand commendations require revered instead of exalted? Im not complaining... but it seems that they should be rewards at exalted instead of revered.

Since the commendations are only available for MoP factions (grrrr), the idea seems to be that at revered, you unlock everything that affects character power (like gear), whereas exalted gets you cosmetic rewards, like mounts. Getting exalted rightfully should be a "when I feel like it, if I feel like it" thing, and this helps reinforce that.

Kyle2 asked:

Question: If I travel to UK for an extended period of time and my wife's laptop that can run WoW happens to find its way into my luggage, can I join an EU server just to level something and then eventually transfer it over to my home server?

Unfortunately, it's not possible to use a US account to play on EU servers and vice versa. You can only play in your account's home region.

nilrem4063 asked:

I maxed lvl and geared for heriocs now it seems i have no way to earn justice points. Is there something I m missing?

Heroic boss kills award JP. Don't worry -- there's so little you can do with JP that you'll have more than you need in no time.

Neuromante asked:

Is it OK to repeat a question for the queue that was not answered, or it will be considered rude? I'm really curious now about the maximum level a pandaren is allowed to stay in the island, may even try it myself. Thanks.

You can stay as long as you want, but leveling there would take approximately a million years once you're past the recommended level range.
