I'd have to agree with the OP. Before MoP a lot of complains were along the lines of: It's too easy! Everyone can get gear! Make it harder! Well, it happened, and now the roles have changed. There really is no argument in saying that you NEED valor/coins for progress because, well, you don't. Does it help this early into an expansion? Yes, it does. I don't mind doing dailies, are they fun? Not really, but I don't usually consider them a chore either. Valor gear will be insignificant in a patch or two anyway.
I've stopped raiding shortly after Ulduar release, I'd still like some shiny items but I am willing to work for them. A lot of people seem to think their guilds are all this and that and that because of that delusion they *have* to do dailies and LFR, all day every day. In a way it reminds me of a thread I read on the US forums about a guy complaining Stone Guard was too hard, RNG, whatever. And he was convinced his raid team consisted of skilled players, while just a quick peak at their armory would tell you otherwise.
What I'm trying to say is this: You don't NEED dailies or LFR unless you're playing world top 25/50. If you find them boring and repetitive DON'T do them. You're living in your own delusion thinking that you need them. WotlK and Cata spoiled the majority of you, now just get used to the fact that things have changed, for the better in my opinion.
Also, Whipper Root Tuber says hi.
Fair point but answer me this "what’s wrong with having another way to grind rep? if the outcome is the same, meaning effort and time wise?
no one has yet answered this question and just repeated themselves saying "you dont need them" in ways i can agree, but i don’t see how this will affect anyone who enjoys doing the daily quests and why people are getting hot an flustered over it :(. we’re not asking to remove it and as long as it takes the same length of time and "effort". What is the actual problem?
I would like the blue post to answer this as well please.
