The achievements to get exalted with the Warsong Gulch, Arathi Basin, and Alterac Valley factions have been removed from their respective “Master of” meta-achievements. Special titles will be offered to those who reach exalted with these factions.

    I'd still rather cut my dick off than do enough WSG to get the Conqueror title.

    I think I'm going to quit playing WoW. I just can't stand how unstable the client is on my computer. It got so bad that today I loggged in for a minute to check my mail and grab the penguin, and the game crashed, caused my resolution and color depth to go haywire, and once I got past the "This program has crashed" popups, it did SOMETHING else to my resolution causing my monitor to be unable to process the signal and forcing me to do a hard reboot.

    I can't understand what's going on. No other game does this, and WoW does it on a fresh install with no addons.

    I have absolutely no idea how you're supposed to get exalted with WSG nowadays. Back in the day when you could trade the tokens in for rep it was somewhat possible, but now? Jesus at the amount of WSG you'd have to do to get exalted. You'd go bonkers, and not in a good way.

    You need to win more than 330 matches in order to get exalted with WSG.

    That's the thing, I really like WSG, but doing that much of it will make me hate it.

    Totally not worth it.

    It would take over a year and a half of playing WSG at this rate.

    For Alliance, if I'm not doing a preform group, my usual victory rate in WSG is about 1 in 5.

    So yeah... it would have been impossible.

    People keep saying Bolvar but I don't understand why he would be molten on the inside. Then again the gold bits on his chest look like worn down alliance shields.

    Doesn't exactly take a hivemind to suggest Bolvar..we know here will be in there somewhere and there are no other known characters to think of. Pretty sure it isn't Deathwing since he wouldn't look crazy in his human form and why would he even be around.

    Deathwings human avatar is supposedly neat looking, and he is very obsessive with keeping his form perfect looking, but this is form the book, so its iffy if they keep it in the game.

    Actually, now that I think about it, Bolvar is seeming likely. If he was kept alive/revived by the red dragons, it would be with fire. So perhaps some kind of infusing him with the fire of life. in his heart.
    But it's still kinda silly.

    Well I've never done Yogg but apparently one of the visions has the 'immolated champion' in which case it's quite obviously Bolvar. The armour does match up quite well too.

    Calling Bolvar in the LK fight.

    Actually looking at it, it HAS to be bolvar, its a more detailed charred look of the armor he wears, more detailed pants and belt.

    The legs look about right, but the shoulder is really weird. Since that set had huge shoulders, I wonder if it's supposed to be the under-layer part, and the big part with the ribbon was broken away.

    The Lich King really did do horrible things to him.

    Bronzing and moving his nipples among such atrocities.

    ICC testing showed Arthas yelling about his champion Bolvar. And the Yogg vision showed Bolvar and Saurfang II.

    Keep in mind that Forgradon is wearing generic Alliance armor.

    And that he was burned by the Red Dragon's fire.

    I wonder if his encounter is along with Saurfang at the entrance to the 3rd level or at the Lich King himself.

    I'll be super pissed if Saurfang Sr. dies.

    Though, with Garrosh taking over as Warchief, a redeemed Saurfang Jr. would make a pretty interesting second in command. I like the idea of a new generation of leaders running the Horde.

    Re: The whole battleground rep thing.

    I'm exalted with all three. Due to WSG's mechanics, it's a long grind, assuming your side can win. It's near impossible if you can't.

    What they really should do is give WSG the 1 rep per kill like AV has. And I say that having done it and not having to deal with it anymore at all.

    End on
    I wish that someway, somehow, that I could save every one of us

    Sadly Saurfang is a dead man, or orc rather. He flat out told Garrosh that he'd kill him before he took the Horde down the old ways again, and considering what we know he has done when he becomes Warchief...

    If Arthas kills Saurfang, motherfucker'd better watch out.

    Though saying that it seems that if anyone is going to kill him it'll be Jr. I can't imagine anything except another Saurfang being capable of taking him out. The son is the father... May the spirits have mercy on those that stand in his way and all that jazz.

    I'm guessing the change to the four raptor hatchling pets is to combat people farming them with bots to sell on the AH for hundreds of gold?

    Though fortunately for me, I just hunted down all 4 of those in the past week and got them myself.

    Maybe the problem was that people just farmed the non-rare raptors to get the rares to spawn and that fucked the people genuinely trying to quest in those areas.
