Cross-Faction System Revamped
#1
The new method of gaining reputation with certain opposite factions is in!

As many of you have seen, Zar'chan in Shatterspear has been sending people into Azshara Crater, with things ending abruptly in the Drudaen Tavern (or, more recently, the Earthshaker Barracks.) Now, Grizby has certain quests that will show up depending on your race, which send you to one of the 'ambassadors' outside one of the faction capitols.

IMPORTANT: If you've raised your faction previously with reborn shards, or your reputation has been otherwise raised from the default value, then the quest will not give you the faction. You will need to send in a ticket for a reputation reset for the appropriate faction.
FURTHERMORE: These quests will set you to unfriendly for the given faction. You will NEED to ensure the "At War" box is unchecked from that faction, and then relog. Failure to do so will likely cause NPCs of that faction to still attack you until you do.

The quest texts are still a work in progress, of course.

Keep in mind that this cross-faction reputation process has been changed so that people will value it more highly, considering they cannot raise it again if they end up doing something silly that the 'locals' of a city faction do not appreciate. DO NOT TAKE IT FOR GRANTED!
That is all.

Try to never just say, "My character isn't interested in that adventure." A lot of people mistake this for good roleplaying, because you are asserting your character's personality. Wrong. Good roleplaying should never bring the game to a screeching halt. One of your jobs as a player is to come up with a reason why your character would be interested in a plot. After all, your personality is entirely in your hands, not the DM's. Come up with a reason why the adventure (or the reward) might appeal to you, no matter how esoteric or roundabout the reasoning. -(Source)

I had picked up the quests while they were still in the works, so I haven't gotten a chance to do them yet..but the general idea of this whole system seems a lot smoother than the reborn shard system! Excellent work, as always, Kretol.

Where can I find this Grizby? Termody and I managed to get the Thunder Bluff quest done, but after that we seemed to hit a dead end.

Lovely. Thanks for getting on that, Kretol, you're a brave... greenskin.

I have a question - are all of the reborn shards taken out? Even the ones for Outland?

Yes. They were initially taken out due to a bug that was causing all gameobjects to respawn after only 10 or so seconds. Considering that doesn't seem to be a problem anymore, I'll see about readding them once I alter the quests themselves.

It's a shame about the bug and extra work, but I and a couple friends truly appreciate it. It's one of the things that really makes this server unique.

(One of many, but it's the one I'm thinking of at the time! :D )

Sorry for the thread necromancy, but I have an important question:

So no matter what race you are, you can't be allies with all enenmy factions? Even if your character's a diplomat?

There are certain factions you can gain rep with, based on reputation. Darnassus and Undercity are barred for everyone, the other major factions are balanced out based on racial relations. For instance, Night Elves can't gain faction with Silvermoon, but they can with Thunder Bluff.
