A bit of civility and respect for others opinions goes a long way toward getting any respect in return. Overly hostile, profane and insulting posts are a sign that people don't really have anything to say. Profanity is best served out in very small doses.

If you don't like dailies don't do them just farm the dungeons. Even doing dailies myself I find i'm getting upgrades faster in lfd.

Try again they never announce sales 48h after release. It was always a week later.
Not to mention the press release for MOP was BEFORE china release.
Dailies to me are a chore, boring and tedious. They are also solo content, i don't want to have to do them to keep up with everyone else. I just think it would be more fair if Blizz gave us a choice to gain rep with either dailies or by doing HC dungeons.
I don't want to do dailies but it's right their in front of me and it's ceased becoming optional because by comparison to almost everything else I can do the reward is just to good for doing it. If the reward was equally as good in dungeons well fuck dailies then.
463 basically means you have to have every piece of gear from dungeons. Seriously every slot has to be filled from dungeons. Direbrew will be gone next week so that won't be an option long term. Youll be left with dailies , running the normal raid to run lfr, or farming crafting gear. The second option is counter intuitive and really that point you'll be getting better gear anyway. Farming crafting gear is okay assuming you have the money and the time and the effort to get it and then have it replaced as soon as you jump in lfr. So were back to running dailies to spend valor gear. Justice points need to be fixed and valor gear needs to be taken away from rep vendors. Simple fix. Then I will never touch dailies.
Even now the only reason I am doing dailies is for the coins. Not the rep gear.
Plus i have heard negative things about the loot system in LFR in MoP, will take me a hell of a long time to gear up if what I hear is true. All of this combined won't be very fun...
You remember running in WOTLK? How you sometimes had 4 versions of the same raid to run? You remember everyone (including so many people on this forum) praising Blizzard for moving to a single raid lock out because they felt forced they had to run every version of the dungeon they can? Well then you know why I feel the same way about dailies.

http://www.wowhead.com/currency=697 not gold sorry.
Yes i remember wotlk. there was only 1 raid with 4 options. ToC was release as the starter to what we have now. before that ulduar/naxx was only 10/25 and icc brought about shareed heroic/normal lockouts.
Furthermore it NEVER filled in every slot before I went in. I use all kinds of dungeon drops. At one point it was in healthy balance, it's so fucked up now it's not even funny.
4.1 - Two revamped old dungeons.
5.0 - New race, new class, new continent, 5 levels, pet battles, 6(?) scenarios, 9 challenge modes.
5.1 - New daily hubs, new PvE "arena-esque" gameplay, item upgrades, pet upgrades...
Yep, less content.
More dungeons? Yeah, I'm going to wait and see on this one. Think about it this way; you put in 13 dungeons. End of the first two months people are geared and don't have reason to go back, particularly if LFR, dailies, challenge modes, scenarios are offering valor points for less time input. Alternatively, you could release 6 dungeons, 2 in a patch, 3 in a patch, 2 in a patch. If Blizz is planning that remains to be seen.
More gear. Yeah, I don't think make more armor is what people asked for as content. I'm pretty sure an extra 3 sets would be far more underwhelming than more dailies.
More pets the battle....there's plenty at the start.
More zones, sure. More raids? Sure. Here's the thing. The expectations are unrealistic. Blizzard's raids and encounters aren't something that you should expect to have spit out on a monthly basis. If we were still in the EverQuest days of tank n spank don't stand in shit for every encounter, then we could. I'll agree we should expect more than Cataclysm delivered, though. Wrath had Ulduar, Toc, and ICC. Large, small, large in its patches. I think that's a fair expectation for an expansion.
The daily quest chains are almost like new zones. As you progress through them, you get more story with a conclusion at exalted. Why people have concluded +20, +30, +40 strength equates to the exclusive concept of character progression is beyond me. Just stacking bigger numbers on armor isn't the only way to expand an MMO, raids are the exclusive feature that MMOs exist for. And yes, that's what I feel like I hear the most.
More raids, new raids, more raids, no more leveling, no more questing, no dailies, raid, raid, raid. That's what I see from a multitude of complaints. And yes, I'm serious, but no, I'm not specifically directing that observation to you.
Edit: Okay, not head to toe, but the items that you can get from raids so far? My understanding was the valor gear wasn't a necessity to get into opening raids. You CAN start without 'em, right?
Maybe they should have gone back to BC method. Last boss drops a badge in heroics. Gather badges, buy loot.
