Feb 17th 2011 1:53PM I can confirm the "bugfix" update does work. And that the person that is updating it was able to get a beta off the author of the addon that gives Archy a whole new skin, and makes it look A LOT better :)
Dec 6th 2010 7:01PM This is true quite a few people are able to get it. There is a post on MMO-Champ that list around 20 realm with people that already have 525 Realm First Cooking Achievement lol.
Nov 10th 2010 10:18AM Yes I can also confirm that I have got my pet in my e-mail inbox.
Dec 8th 2009 11:47AM Yes but in 3.3 you can use Emblem of Triumph at the vendor in Dalaran to buy the old rep things from the normal daily. And you can buy as many as you want, they cost 1 Emblem per 1 rep item (250 rep).
Here is the quote from the official Patch Notes:
"# Commendation Badges which award reputation with various Wrath of the Lich King factions can be purchased with Emblems of Triumph in Dalaran. Each badge costs 1 Emblem of Triumph."
