little tip, don't faction change part way through earning all the mounts.. you have to unlock all the cities again from scratch. If you faction change back your progress will remain.. just as long as you don't realm change first. so far after totc was valid content this seriously needs fixing by blizzard.. for me, since it was current content i have realm changed once, and faction changed 4 times.. and i'm still not done with all the mounts, it srsly takes the p**s!

It's not a bug that, but intentional by Blizzard.Reason is, when you swap sides, all your fraction reputation is saved and switched over to the Alliance/Horde equilivant, but quests are typically reset as they can differ from side to side and can be harder to track and balance correctly if you swapped.Argent Tournament is no different sadly. If you swap sides, the quests have to be reset as you are saved to the Horde quests and switching to Alliance (Or vice versa), which would be a nightmare to try to translate and balance correctly.So yeah, it's not really something I think is possible and sadly, now it's considered obsolete, probably not gonna be looked at.Believe me, my friend who loved her Crusader title on her Blood Elf paladin was horrified to lose her Crusader title when she fraction changed to a Draenei, and has been struggling to push herself to earn the title back for him.

i disagree. the quests are exactly the same for both factions. there is nothing faction specific about them, other than the quest-givers that give them. And we have plenty examples of identical quests given from faction specific quest givers that are marked complete when you faction transfer. We even see the mounts transfer to faction specific faction mounts when you faction change. The unlocks open up the ability to boost your city-specific reputation, which at the time was a major thing. Now, with city tabards it's not valid. the only real reason i can think of is the vanity pets are BoE, and still fetch hefty prices on AH, especially the cross faction ones. but still, faction transfer is a paid-for service. if you wish to pay £30 to transfer twice then that's up to you.still, i guess it's something to do in-game when all the other content is done, and stale.. now raiding heroic firelands this is fast approaching.
