Following yesterday’s hotfixes, Blizzard has made some additional changes to the PvP event in Ashenvale.

Players will now be able to receive reputation when an enemy dies as long as they have made a hostile action against that enemy. So healers, get out your wands and staves and give them a swing to be sure you get credit. You will even get credit if you’re dead or not near the enemy anymore, as long as you are still in the zone when they die.

Characters who get credit will receive 200 reputation when a lieutenant dies. If your faction wins the event, characters with appropriate credit will receive 200 reputation for killing the faction leader, plus an additional 100 reputation for each friendly lieutenant that survived.

The two Trainee’s mounts now require Friendly reputation instead of Honored, making them much easier to get your hands on.

Finally, the time limit for the battle has been doubled to 60 minutes.

Senior Game Producer Josh Greenfield also tweeted their plans for additional adjustments in the coming days: fixing lieutenant objectives and changes to graveyards.

The following changes are now live:

  • When a character makes any hostile action against an opposing faction Lieutenant (e.g. Keepers of the Grove, Blademasters) or faction leader in the various objective areas, they will receive reputation when that enemy dies.
    • It must be an offensive action (harmful spell, harmful ability, melee attack, or ranged attack) against an enemy to receive reputation.
      • This also affects Healers who must use an offensive actions against the Lieutenant or faction leader.
  • Characters will receive reputation even if they are dead or no longer nearby as long as they are still in the zone when the enemy dies.
  • Characters will receive 200 reputation for killing a Lieutenant and all members of the winning faction will receive 200 reputation when the faction leader dies.
  • The winning team will also receive 100 reputation per friendly Lieutenant remaining.
    • Example: If there are two Lieutenants alive when the battle is won, a character will gain 200 reputation plus whatever was earned from defeating objectives plus the 200 reputation from killing the enemy faction leader (assuming the character used an offensive action against the faction leader).
  • The Trainee’s Sentinel Nightsaber and Trainee’s Outrider Wolf now require Friendly reputation with the Silverwing Sentinels and Warsong Outriders respectively (was Honored).
  • Players now have 60 minutes to complete the Ashenvale PvP event (was 30 minutes).
