URGENT ALERT: Insane Changes

It's a question you've been asking us for a little while now. And, based on all the posts, emails, petitions, and letters we received following the announcement that the Insane in the Membrane achievement would no longer be in available in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, we started to wonder if maybe we had gone a bit loco.

So, we went back to the drawing board. After carefully reviewing all the feedback and discussing the matter amongst ourselves, we're now happy to report that we will be making the following changes to the Feat of Strength:

Exalted reputation with Shen'dralar will no longer be required. As this is the only reputation that will be unobtainable in Cataclysm, we've simply decided to remove it as a requirement.

For those who already earned Exalted reputation with this faction, don't worry -- we haven't forgotten about your accomplishments. In a future patch, we'll be adding in a separate Feat of Strength to recognize your deep love of Dire Maul.

Bloodsail Buccaneer faction reputation will remain in-game. Also, to ensure that this change does not negatively affect Cataclysm quest progression in Stranglethorn Vale, Booty Bay Bruisers will now provide reputation up through Exalted.

This will ensure that players will still be able to attain Insane in the Membrane and "The Insane" title in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Please note, however, that these changes will not take effect until The Shattering in patch 4.0.3a -- excluding the separate "Exalted with Shen'dralar" feat, which will be introduced in a future, but currently-undetermined patch.

And, of course, those who are already Insane in the Membrane will retain their title and current Feat of Strength. Shine on, you crazy diamonds. 

Dump all of your Pristine Black Diamonds ASAP!  Dump Your Librams ASAP!


  1. I can definitely see a massive drop in prices on both of these. As soon as they announced that the Razzashi Hatchling was being kept in the game, the prices dropped by 3k gold. with ~15 Hatchlings on the AH.

  2. I think there will now be a few people who will want the new Shen'dralar feat so maybe diamonds etc won't go down as they might have.

  3. I think most people already working on Shen'dralar rep will continue to do so. Completionists are comletionists are completionists.

    This change will probably make more go for insane = more Darkmoon decks to be sold ;)

  4. Foo had a comment, but the link was wrong, so here is his correct link.

    He begs to differ with my opinion to dump these all now.

    I beg to differ
