2012/10/20 at 11:45 AM
This following article is a PTR preview from the Brawler's Guild. Since this preview, the Guild has gone through several changes. Please read
Wowhead's Brawler's Guild Guide
for all the details that made it live to 5.1.
of the Brawler's Guild last week, many more features have been added on the PTR. Players can queue up for brawls, gain ranks, purchase consumables, and loot rewards.
The Brawler's Guild has set up fighting rings set up in Stormwind and Orgrimmar where players engage in solo PvE challenges. Winning increases your rank within the Brawler's Guild, making you eligible for more and more rewards. The areas are set up so that players fight in a central pit while spectators are encouraged to watch on the sides.
The Brawler's Guild is a bit livelier now on the PTR. The announcers are in full swing and a variety of champions were unleashed on players. We watched C'thun, Dungeon Master Vishas, some undead spirits, a large dinosaur, and a Necromanc

(Edit: This article was updated 11/28 with finalized Commendation items and prices.)
To recap: there are new PvP hubs in Krasarang Wilds in 5.1 that have daily quests, charting the growing conflict between the Alliance and the Horde. Along with this, there are two new factions:

Blizzard posted a ton of information today on several enchants that players have been puzzled about--

Recent blue posts have also addressed Heart of the Wild Changes, misconceptions about
Gara'jal the Spiritbinder

the dailies now that the 25-per-day limit has been removed.
On a lighter note, our friends at WoW Insider wrote a great article on

5.1 PTR: Brawler's Guild and New Krasarang Wilds PvP Hubs
2012/10/14 at 10:36 AM
Level 90 characters are working once again on the PTR, so we took a look at the new developments in Stormwind, Orgrimmar, and Krasarang Wilds. There's two major features that we found:
Krasarang Wilds PvP Hubs
. From what we've seen, it looks like the Alliance is getting a lot of love when it comes to these new areas that show off combat and PvP skills--their areas show that they've rebounded from Theramore.
Krasarang Wilds: New PvP Hubs
A large part of 5.1 is about the Alliance and Horde conflict escalating to the point where they've set up military bases on the shores of Krasarang Wilds.
Two new reputations have been added as a result:
for the Alliance and
for the Horde.
The Alliance hub is located at
in the east, and the Horde hub is located at
to the far west.
Each base has objectives for the enemy team to capture like graveyards and towers, commissions to earn that can recruit guards to protect your new territory, and daily quests.

Pet Battles: Leveling by Zone, October 12th Hotfixes
2012/10/13 at 10:00 AM
Continuing with our pet battle coverage, we'll be focusing on the leveling flow today, sorting each zone by their wild battle pet levels. Pet battle progression through zones roughly follows the same path you'd take questing, with a few minor deviations. Each zone in the tables below takes you to that zone's battle pet map, with a list of all the pets found in the zone and the pet locations marked on the map.
Here's some basics about capturing wild pets:
You can capture a wild battle pet when it is below 35%.
At 35%, you can use the
ability to attempt to capture the pet.
This takes up a turn and there is a chance it can miss--which diminishes with each failed capture.
You can only capture one companion pet when fighting a team of three wild pets. You must also win the battle to retain your captured pet!
Captured wild pets may have their level decay when captured (still much better than leveling one from scratch):
Level 16-20 pets lose one level.
Level 21-25 pets lose 2 levels.
