I will fill the Auction House tonight with the various New Augment Crystals!
I'd like to have The Guide permanently placed in world, but it is not entirely up to me, so it will take time to get that done.
Since new named items must be created in the dungeons at the appropriate difficulty, it will take me a while to adjust my Auction House automation to deal with this. Also note that some of the new named items (ie: Raid loot) are bound to character, so I would not be able to post them in the AH. I do want to get this task completed soon since it would definitely be beneficial to have new items more available for everyone.
As for Favor: we currently do not have a way to bestow favor and it is not likely that we will ever get that command. Even Devs have to run the quests to get the appropriate favor.
I have also tried to drop Epic Raid Tokens a few times. No matter how I try to give them out, I cannot drop them.
