Also, I find this mount a good reason to get Shado-Pan to exalted: Reins of the Onyx Cloud Serpent
Not really. I rather would like to avoid your bad daily quest design than to grind up to exalted to get your ugly mounts. I did that for the cloud serpents and for the anglers, those daily quests werent fun at all. Poop-quests.. as like collecting the poop piles for the cloud serpent.. really, sir, what do your game designers feel by implementing that? "Haha, look, how they have to collect poop to get exalted! Ha, Ha!"?
What you, draztal, and your parrots on this forums construct as a fallacy, is, that you say people wont like to put in "effort" into the progress, which just is as constructed as your responses to lfr-hate-threads.
People want to put in effort, but they want to have a diverse game play. An example: if i want to level up, i may use questing for that. But i also may use battlegrounds for that. I also may use dungeons.
Where is the "do what you like for your progression" your designers talked about at blizzcon?
If you want to "level up" your reputation at level 90, the only way to do that is by daily quests, and by really bad designed daily quests (open world quest items to collect, where you compete with 100 other people doing the dailies at the same time).
Allow people to get buffs from the quartermasters to fight in battlegrounds, arenas, dungeons and scenarios for their favorite faction instead of gaining honor, justice, valor or conquest points. Diversify the game..
And hey, draztal, stop constructing and supporting fallacies in your discussions, and try to answer to controverse discussion which just dont want the tabards back. I think most people understand that your designers think that tabards are too easy to obtain reputation. But that doesnt mean you have to put all your players into daily-quest concentration camps to "work hard" utilizing monotonous single ways they dont like to do.. This is still a game, draztal, and no playground for fanatic game designers, who just know one way. Learn to make solutions which dont implement the complete vice versa of what it was before just to follow some silly "design mantra".. Think a little bit longer about the consequencies of what your designers implement..
Oh, and btw., please stop constructing "massive feedback" against lfr by blue tagging whiner threads. Or do you want your devs to nerf lfr even more because some whiny wannabe-hardcore gamers ask you to? Thats redicoulous.
