Honorbound/7th Legion & Faction Change Clarifications

Recommended Posts

37119-blizzard-talk-class-development-du

If you decide to change factions, your Honorbound or 7th Legion reputation will convert into the opposite faction equivalent. You will still need to complete the War Campaign in the new faction to unlock that Allied Races.

Blizzard clarified today that you won't need to farm the War Campaign reputation all over again if you decide to switch factions. This only applies to factions, not achievements.

Let's assume you've completed the Alliance War Campaign (Ready for WarReady for War), unlocked Dark Iron Dwarves and reached Exalted with 7th Legion. The achievement won't transfer over to the Horde equivalent (Ready for WarReady for War) and you must still complete the Horde War Campaign in order to unlock Mag'har Orcs, but you will be Exalted with Honorbound after the faction change. The campaign should be immediately available given that you won't need to farm reputation for it to unlock. Check out our reputation guides for more details!

If you Faction Change your Honorbound or 7th Legion reputation will convert into the opposite faction equivalent.

Keep in mind, however, that faction-specific quests and achievements won't be converted to their counterpart in the new faction. As a result, you will be required to complete the War Campaign in the new faction.

Hope this helps. ?

So wait, I I complete the War Campaign and unlock the DI dwarves, do Mag'har orcs get unlocked as well, but do I have to complete the opposite faction's War campaign?

Only if you faction change your Alliance character into Horde. If it's simply on another Horde character, then you have to grind your rep with Honorbound.

Let's assume you're an Alliance char Exalted with 7th Legion who has unlocked Dark Iron Dwarves (Ready for WarReady for War). You'd like to transfer that specific char to the Horde. How this is worded, I think you should be automatically Exalted with Honorbound after the faction change, but you'll still need to complete the Horde War Campaign (Ready for WarReady for War) in order to unlock Mag'har Orcs. Shouldn't take long if you're Exalted with the War Campaign faction.

Yeah, unlike these 4 from Legion, which had reputations available for both factions, these are separate. It's probably going to be the same with Kul Tirans and Zandalari, likely 2 more factions with separate grinds (even if storywise it doesn't make sense, since they are already as reps in game, like Proudmoore Admiralty etc.).

Yes I think so.

I dont know how they could require the war campaign, which part s to set up the areas to quest in, while leaving them set up for you to begin with.

 

I guess they did it with teleporters in legion, though.

So far I follow this. But if you, after faction change and unlocking of opposite faction allied race (Mag orc/DI dwarf), faction change back to original faction again (where you started and had it all) will your previous ach then be reset so you have to do them one more time? Have 18 alliance and 17 horde char, and really want both sides allied races, but using one main.

      Here's a preview of Leather sets that will drop in Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid in Visions of N'Zoth.
      Currently, there's some clipping going on with the belt which will be hopefully fixed in future builds.

      Last week, Blizzard added Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren along with encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Darion Mograine to the game. In this week's PTR build, four Death Knight Swords have been added.
      If Allied Races and the Pandaren will indeed be able to become Death Knights in Patch 8.3, it would make perfect sense to revamp the starting zone, because the current one is outdated now that Bolvar is the Lich King.
      Blizzard added four Ebon Blade swords to the game on 8.3 PTR that will likely be rewarded to new Death Knights created in Visions of N'Zoth as part of the overhauled starting experience.

      There's more class changes coming to the PTR and Visions of N'zoth, as Discipline Priests' Schism will only increase damage done from Priest effects only. For other class changes, featuring more Priest tweaks, as well as Druid, Mage, Monk, Paladin and Warlock entries, check out our initial coverage of patch 8.3.

      I’ve added the following new fix to the notes in the OP:
      Priest
      Discipline Schism now increases damage done from Priest spells and abilities only. Developers’ notes: This is intended to be consistent with other class cooldowns. Other Patch 8.3 Content:

      There's been a lot of feedback on the Auction House changes introduced on the PTR and today Blizzard have responded to a lot of it, with some answers about how the AH will work in general, as well as PTR specific issues.
      Auction House (source)
      We think you can do this by using a combination of the “Uncollected Only” checkbox in the filter dropdown and the Armor/Weapon categories on the left.
      ...
      All versions of the same pet will be grouped in the same page. Since the auctions on that page will be mix of various levels, rarities, and stats, it’ll be up to the buyer to determine which pet they want to buy.
      ...
      At this time, we’re continuing with the 48-hour max duration the WoW auction house has always had.
      ... Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback so far!
      Here are some known issues that will be fixed on upcoming PTR builds:
      Dressing Room support (CTRL click) Linking to chat (Shift click) Durations showing the wrong times Then there's a lot of responses to current issues that are either PTR specific, or will be resolved quickly:
      AH (source)
      We don’t have wildcard functionality, but you can simply search for the first few words (example: Notorious Combatant’s Intuitive Staff) and it will return all items matching that.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the suggestion.
        The “Uncollected Only” filter will return all items that you don’t have the appearance for. As a result, you may see several items for the same appearance.
        There is a “Usable Only” filter that will only show you recipes you can learn.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the feedback.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the suggestion.
      ... Thanks! We’re aware of duration displays issues, and we’re working on that right now.
