For the next person who is about to type "your not forced to do them" please concider how many people would do them by choice if these essential items wern't hidden behind them, before posting.
Revered is all you need for the VP items that are rapidly becoming obsolete, revered is trivial to get - consider the miniscule amount of time you have to put into doing them the replacement for how free flasks are this expansion. The only people who would consider such upgrades "mandatory", are the kind of raiders that should be willing to put in time to minmax.
If you like alts, you are forced to do dailys on them aswell if you want to use the Cloud serpents.
Farming to exalted on every alt is unacceptable, either make them Account wide reputations, or turn them into books for rep, 100% extra rep does not matter much if you got to do it on every alt.
You don't NEED to use a cloud serpent.
Otherwise there are other huge problems.
I'm FORCED to pvp to get my dk alt a snazzy pvp set! Inexcusable!
I'm FORCED to raid at heroic level to get my warrior a cool tier set.
I'm FORCED to do challenge modes if I want to get my challenge mode set.
Clearly all of these need changing too. It's unacceptable. [/sarcasm]
If you want things on alts, sometimes you need to work for them - you're getting titles and mounts account wide already, until recently you'd have had to grind to exalted on alts to get mounts, re-grind that 1% drop rate mount that you really want for it etc.
Man up and take responsibly for your own desires. It's you who wants your alt to sit on a cloud serpent, go do the requirements or make do with one of the other 100s of mounts available. You are not "forced" to ride cloud serpents, nor can you claim that you're "forced" to do something when the only thing forcing you is your own self-imposed desire.
