Has there ever been daily quests that didn't involve damaging something? (Yes, there's always been quests that require you to gather items, which is still the case). You're trying to relate queue times to daily quest design, but you can't really compare apples to oranges. Some players might not change their spec to do their dailies, but some will actually use their dps off-spec to go through them quicker.
In a world of Dual Talent Specs, [url="http://www.wowhead.com/npc=65172"]NPCs[/url] giving you green quality gear to start your off-spec, there's not much reason to say you can't do that content other than *actively* refusing to use the tools at your disposal to make the most out of the game.
If it's "utterly meaningless content"... then why bother doing it? Other than the charms, you're not losing anything from not doing that content (you'll gear up slower since you won't be raising your reputations either, but regardless, you'll gear up eventually).
While it's probably fair to say that Mists is unfriendly to alts (which is something the developers have tried to ease with the Grand Commendations for Mists reputations, for example); to go and say that is unfair to "multirole characters" when you're screaming at the same time that you're refusing to use the other roles of your character is sheer contradiction.
Yes. As of 5.1, the repeteable quest for The Klaxxi (Seeds of Fear) now only requires 5 Dread Amber Shards
You can enter a scenario and heal if that's what you want. Same deal with a tank. It's just not required to complete them, but the game is not going to penalize your group for it. (If anything, both cases might allow more reckless play from the two DPS).
So, what about the classes that don't have a healing spec? They should be excluded from them because they chose the wrong class? While not all classes can heal (or tank), all of them can DPS.
How on earth can a blue poster come on forums and talk about one aspect of game content - and IGNORE the fact that this is a MMO game - every part of the game effects another part in some way.
If a healer in main or offspec (greens or blues) is having to go do worthless, meaningless, generic, repetitive daily quest content that was not designed for him in the first place to do it in any efficent way - and at the same time leaving OTHER aspects of the game, like LFD and LFR without much needed healers - then there is something wrong. IF a blue poster can't see that then he should simply not post here.
Solo content daily questing is the lowest of low when it comes to meaningfull content in WOW. Like it or not. It is designed to be most efficient for one role (DPS), it involves zero social aspect (other than mob tagging) and it very little if ANY real progression value in terms of story content.
Sorry for cutting your post short, but this was the only thing related to topic.
Dailies are solo content to an extent, but most complaints revolve around how time consuming they are.
They aren't time consuming to begin with, they are an added options, a different type of game play and not for everyone just like pet battles isn't for everyone, which is perfectly fine! They are also not designed for a specific role, and if people would stop throwing around pointless invalid excuses and team up to get it done with speed you'd also see a section of mmo in dailies.A lot of players do team up, simply because it makes it go even faster!
Also if their so worthless, meaningless and down right boring.., why on earth are you even spending time on them to begin with?
Don't answer it with how it's a must to be on par, the tokens is a chance, and you're far more likely to get gold then get an item that has value.., if this is what you're basing your progression on, then you're seriously screwed and in no way a progressive / competitive raider or guild.
Progressive or competitive has absolutely nothing to do with you being able to get 3 coins a week where you may, or may not be able to net 0, 1 or even 3 items.., it has to do with your own and guilds ability to execute flawlessly and efficiently, but given that so many posters compare themselves to the top 10 in the world, there's little understanding on this.
You want to compare yourselves to the boys in Paragon, Blood Legion etc etc, by all means knock yourselves out, but end these invalid statements about dailies, coins and reputations being mandatory.., especially at this point in MoP, you look extremely ridiculous with those statements, and even more so when you downright refuse to use the tools available to obtain the so called mandatory items!
