How to see if your Grand Commendation is active

How to see if your Grand Commendation is active
Both Rygarius and Bashiok have posted on a forum thread regarding the absence of an in-game interface to see if your Grand Commendation is active on your account. As you likely already know, Grand Commendations are items purchasable from every faction at revered, which boost the reputation gains of every character on your battle.net account, regardless of faction or server. However, there's not any in-game indication saying that your gain is increased, there's not even, as the thread's OP said, any red text stating that the item has already been purchased.

Once the item has been used, every character, including the one purchasing the commendation, has their reputation gain increased by 100%, so a fail-safe way to see if your account has a certain faction's Grand Commendation running already is to do a daily quest. Having made your way to revered, it's possible that you're fairly aware of the amount of reputation usually awarded by a certain daily quest.

If you're not sure exactly how much reputation a quest usually awards, there are resources available to help, such as wowhead's database, which can be used to check the reputation reward of any daily quest. There are also addons like Factionizer which can help in-game with reputation rewards.

Once you've established the reputation reward usually given by a daily quest, it's easy to see if your account has had a 100% increase in reputation applied, the reward will simply be doubled. And don't worry, as Bashiok says, Community Manager Rygarius is working on this with the development team.

The OverAchiever: Mountain o' Mounts in Northrend

Every Thursday, The Overachiever shows you how to work toward those sweet achievement points. This week, we continue the Mountain o' Mounts grind in Northrend.

Bad news, folks: Once you've made your way through your own faction's basic ground mounts and the array of options available in Outland, you've largely exhausted the supply of factions that will offer you tons of mounts just because they like you. The closest you'll get is the Argent Tournament, which offers lots of mounts but a relatively long grind for most of them, even if you're already exalted with your home factions. Past this point, count on doing reputation grinds for only a few mounts at most.

However, the bite doesn't feel as bad in Northrend, in no small part because Dalaran and Argent Tournament quartermasters will sell you Commendation badges for the Argent Crusade, Ebon Blade, Kirin Tor, Sons of Hodir, and Wyrmrest Accord in return for 16 justice points. Each badge gives you 520 reputation, and it's a great way to bleed off extra JPs you're sitting on, if spending lots of time in Northrend isn't on your to-do list.

Forum post of the day: I need that for my PvP set

I'm sure at some point in time we've all seen epic looting nightmares. More than once I've been hoping for a drop in an instance only to have another party member beat me on a need roll. Usually, though it's something they actually do need, at least as much as I do. Sometimes ninja looting is even an accident, but other times it is not.

Avirisa of Mannoroth is a might miffed that she was outrolled for a Commendation of Kael'Thas ... to a Hunter... for PvP. As a tank, she said he was running the instance to acquire that drop. Most responded that this behavior is part of what gives Hunters a bad name in the game (Huntard). Some blamed the original poster for inviting not only a Hunter, but a Night Elf Hunter to the group.
