With today’s release of World of Warcraft Patch 5.0.4, the Insane in the Membrane Feat of Strength is now account-wide and its title benefit is available to all characters on your Battle.net account, if you have ever completed Insane in the Membrane on any character.
However, for those of you who aren’t finished yet, you must complete all of the requirements on a single character; you can’t grind one reputation to Exalted on one character and a different reputation on another.
On one hand I’m liking this, since I can now have the title on every character, even the new level 1 Pandaren I’ll be creating next month.
At the same time I feel it diminished the effort I (and several others) put in to grinding Insane in the Membrane on several different characters prior to Mists of Pandaria. Achieving this twice during Wrath was a significant feat, and twice more during Cataclysm was nothing to sneeze at. I’d almost finished number five when this change came down. Now it seems I don’t have to.
Thanks again Blizzard for yet another nerf.
