    This buff can only be seen by the player targeting another player they've recently killed in Lake Wintergrasp.  It only affects whether or not your killing blow (on your enemy) grants you rank in regards to eligibility for 'purchasing' siege weapons.  You will still receive honor points and credit towards  Wintergrasp Ranger.

    To track how many enemy players you need to kill in each sub-zone:  Add the achievement to the Objectives tracker.  (Open the Achievements window.  In the left column: click Player vs Player, click Wintergrasp.  Go to the larger, right column and scroll if needed down to "Wintergrasp Ranger."  Checkmark the Track box or Shift+Leftclick.)

    This achievement was much, much easier to earn in Wrath of the Lich King when the world PvP zone was current content.  Nowadays, you may have to resort to finding an opponent willing to allow you to kill him or her.*  Thanks, Yin!


    *  Recently Slain does not interfere with credit towards Wintergrasp Veteran.

    As with many rare world-drop vanilla items, the best source for farming it is either the Auction House (be prepared to spend a lot of gold) or Nefarian.

    The shapeshift itself is not random.  The race is predetermined and it will not change your character's sex.

    • Night elf ↔ Forsaken
    • Human ↔ Orc
    • Gnome ↔ Tauren
    • Dwarf ↔ Troll
    • Draenei ↔ Blood elf
    • Worgen ↔ Goblin

    Yep, it's a copy of Kang's Bindstone.  It seems that Blizzard is just providing another means of acquiring an item that players may use to stone (teehee) their enemies.

    Kalytha's Haunted Locket may be purchased from Tex Vortacoil without having completed any prior Azshara quests.

    The spell changes your character model to that of Spirit of Kalytha.  The change is considered a transformation (meaning that you can use abilities, use mounts, et cetera).  It stacks with other model-changing abilities, items, and trinkets, though not all.  R.I.P. druids and shaman (and demo locks) as usual. :(

    Of important note:  The buff has a duration of 30 minutes while the item's cool-down is only 15 minutes.  This is one of the rare instances in which a toy has a duration greater than its CD.  5K gold well spent!

    For information about Kalytha, see the Wowpedia articles for the quests "Memories of the Dead" and "Mystery of the Sarcen Stone".

    Well, you can try to improve your average item level. You can also have friends cast beneficial abilities such as Blessing of Kings, Fortitude, etc. on you prior to entering the Thunder Forge solo instance - you can't be grouped in a party to do this, though.  You can also try changing around talents and glyphs.  Good luck!

    The first possibility that comes to mind is that you have reached the valor cap but haven't earned 3K VP since the quest was added to your log.  You may also try reloading the client by using /reload.  Or, perhaps it is an add-on that is interfering with your ability to turn in the quest.

    Sealed Stormstout Brew is a reference to the vanilla quest Chen's Empty Keg (obsolete as of Cataclysm).  It was the only way of acquiring  Stormstout the only drink in the game (up till MoP) with the Stormstout name.

    No longer available to players.  It was a quest reward from Chen's Empty Keg.  It was the only drink in the game, prior to Mists of Pandaria, with the Stormstout name.

    Thanks to foresight by the Blizzard designer(s) who created this encounter, players who die to Hexos will not suffer durability loss to their equipment.
