Ok awesome but I still want the meta-achievement for reputations account-wide. I'm not gonna farm all 45 reputations that I already have on my new main... that would be a huge waste of time with all the new content. Boo.
I had to laugh at the use of the ??? > Profit meme. It has many uses.
So this means that for old factions which I never finished getting to exalted, I can do half as much work to push them to exalted? Sweet! MC runs, here I come.
Pushing aside the fact whether they are fun or not the real issues I see with this is that they effectively remove any means that people play longer and as such pay more subscription fees.
I guess an argument could be used that some people are willing to do the grind if it were a tad bit easier and as such this change would make people roll more alts but that is assuming someone has the paitiance to do it agian over and over agian on each character.
Let us not forget that this change only reduces alt grind by half but doesnt address the very issue whether that grind is exciting or not. We're going from 10 hour of grind to 5 hour of grind.
By your logic, you should not be playing the game you want to and have fun the way you want to have fun?
I like to grind rep if the reward in the end is a "rare" achievement and the item/titel coming along is well suited for my taste.
Just because a player likes getting a reward for a hard grind and feel accomplished, doesn't entitle you to tell him to reconsider how he plays the game..
I think a tabard would help out the people with multiple toons who don't want to have the longer time to get to exalted, and the people who feel more accomplishment from it taking longer can decide not to use the tabard. Having more choice is good, forcing choice is not so good.
But, if this is definitely going to go through, I have to agree that making it twice as fast to level from revered to exalted is just plain dumb. May as well get rid of reputations gains altogether.
Once you go troll, you never reroll. -heard on cynicalbrit.com. Epic.
Competition with others to go where others dont have what it takes to do. That's what fun about grinding. The actual stand up to the "do it faggot" meme. Yes Dailies or grinding gets boring and tedious after a while but you might as well say the same about anything about the game. Hell! if you go crazy about it then you might as well label everything that stands betwean you and your objective as terrible grind because you may not enjoy what you are doing and you only see the end of the journey as the only worthwhile thing in it.
What I'm trying to say is that if you find something boring or tedious then perhaps it should be you who should develop a way to derive fun from it. It's not a disguised way to say "man up entitled!" It's really more of a good advice in life overall. In case of WoW, if you expect to be excited and entertained every single second you play... you might want to reconsider what you expect from reality.
Less time to farm the same reputation i have already done on my main for my alts?
Fantastic change, very pleased, despise dailies.
"the exalted" here i come!
As someone with over 20 alts, the thought of grinding rep on them all did slightly worry me, so I'm liking the new changes, though by the time it happens in a patch I'll probably be exalted with most factions on my main anyway, that the benefit won't benefit my main. But thats fine So long as my alts get the loving^
i thought the idea was that rep was shared across toons? why do we have to re grind it all again?
But we still have to play the game by ourselves ^_^' ?!
It's not that i don't like the idea but the more new stuff is included, the more i've the feeling that (singing) "This is a casuaaaaaaals world"

Personally I would have changed it to - Once 1 char on a an account hits Exalted, the rest of the chars on that account will be able to receive the "exalted rewards" once they hit Honored/Reverred. That way 1 char has done the grind and earned the reward fair and square, the rest only have to do a little bit of farming!
