So, what should be changed on dailies so that they're fun to you? (and please don't say "remove them" or something that would turn them into something irrelevant, or we'd be missing the point of the question!)
Just as an example, all the factions on Mists have rotating dailies (some of them are set, like the profession dailies for the Order of the Cloud Serpent and some of the Golden Lotus daily quests) and there's variety on them regarding what you do, which is not always kill this, gather that.
I absolutely have no qualms with doing repetitive tasks for longer periods of time NONE AT ALL! so lets that straight first. however my biggest gripe is having to do repetitive tasks on a forced 24 hour CD with no way to influence your own speed or planning.
so per definition I will never like dailies period there's no way at all to make them more fun more engaging. having said that I dont want them removed people that like dailies are free to do so. power to them.
I just want an alternative in getting reputation that's all. I dont
want it to go faster
. I dont
want it to become more easy
. I just want an alternative
that's it nothing more nothing less.
you as in blizzard stated you wanted people out in the world more so that's why you put in dailies. please tell me how 30m-1h of activity in a zone makes it so that more people are out in the world? a 30 minute activity a day doesn't make the world more lively or more vibrant. it has the complete opposite effect the moment the new patch comes out people just rush to the new hub and the other zones will be desolated for the remainder of the expansion. maybe for the few selected that spend 30 mins a day to get working on there profession recipe or vanity items.
Right now this expansion is having the opposite effect on me I an idling more then ever or not even logging in for more then 1-2 hours most of the days.
I went from almost 7years of 6 month recurring subscription to a what will be a sporadic 1 month playtime sub. Right now I dont see a point in subbing keeping a sub for more then 3-6 months at a time knowing ill be gone through what you call content in barely a month any way.
To get people out in the world the only solution is not to restrict people in progress (or their feeling of character progress) there where always people farming wintersaber rep or fulborg rep I still see people farming netherwing rep or skyguard rep even. However I never see any people at the tournament grounds or in molten front. Isn't that like a gigantic clue when you see one?
The only way to seriously get people out in the world is to make it so that people want to be out there after they have leveled and done there dailies (if they feel like it) and not give them the feeling after they are done with the dailies "oh well got my rep for today cant progress any further lets head back to city x or my farm and queue for raid,dungeon, bg etc"
just add a tiny bit of rep to the faction specific mobs (aka blackprince rep), add relics scattered around pandaria and as a small chance drop to mobs (aka netherwing eggs and the tiller soil method) so they can get rep in an alternative way besides doing a chore set of dailies.
Add a tiny bit of rep back to the faction specific dungeons just as back in tbc NOT THE TABARD WAY! (normals give rep till honored and HC give rep till exalted)
Or go the commendation way I suggested a couple of pages back.
- dailies locked behind dailies ... really? If you didn't think dailies would be required, why would you do this and not just let us choose winch dailies we do
that's pretty retarded idd.
you know what was even more lol worthy? I hit exalted after the first shadowpan daily after the reset. so I started looking for the exalted quest (the one that gives you the black serpent)
Guess what I had to finish the whole daily hub before the quest even popped up so yes in essence I was forced to do dailies that day even if I dint need to (seeing I hit exalted) on top of that I had 3-4 days of the Bug isle dailies (most horrid shadopan hub imo) lets say I raged a lot that evening.
