Who exactly is this change for? It's like people actually WANT to hurry up and be tired of the game.
I do agree that they didn't need to nerf the "main" rep farming after revered, but the changes to be "alt-wide" is good.

Makes no sense with the revered -> exalted change, kinda silly.
Alt change is good, but would have preferred account-bound rep.
For people with one of each class ( myself included ) this is a very welcome change.
I'm ok with the changes for alts, but the new stuff for main seems silly.
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy." -Alexander Tytler
Mixed feelings about this change, I've long been a proponent of the EQ2 style of leveling (where once you have a max level character the next one gains 20% bonus exp((stacking to 200% max))
While I like that you're other characters have less of a grind to do, I don't think you should gain double the rep after revered. Grind hard once, and then make it a bit easier for alts
Well twice as fast from revered to exalted is an overkill but it's a great idea in my opinion to let alts get faction maxed fast, I freaking saw the whole content of the dailies, full story as I finish it on my main, why should I have to do it all over again again and again and again, it's like farming the reputation for shoulder enchants in Deepholm, couldn't be arsed to constantly do it, was extremely lame, but they could make the requirement exalted and not revered to bonus your alts...
Does this apply to all factions in WoW or just the MoP factions? I like the idea though.
Actually I quite enjoy grinding reps, I just can't STAND dailies. That was my issue with the new reps that only way to reach exalted was through dailies, let me choose if I want to mob farm or whatever and set a limit on how much rep you can earn per week. Problem solved.
tbph I think getting twice as much rep until exalted is gonna ruin a lot of things, and I disagree with it a whole lot. It takes away quite a lot of the good feeling you had when you finally reached exalted status with certain factions.
And no I'm not for Tabard grinding, rather the opposite.
This is coming from a guy who barely got time to play 5 hours a week anymore, and as I can't stand dailies, but love rep grinds. Well that's just not how I wanna spend my 5 hours a week feeling 'forced' to do the same dailies every day making it feel like more of a chore instead of actually being fun.
What's hard about doing the same crap day after day? You people don't seem to know what this word means, and you should stop using it. I have a better sentence you can use that properly expresses what they're doing:
"What the hell, Blizzard? Why would you make rep grinding less tedious and mundane?"
They should have made a reputation tabard for each faction that is BoA and only obtainable when you hit Exalted. Your first character hits exalted, by grinding it as it stands now, and then he can buy the tabard to send to Alts for increased rep gain. I kinda liked all the different tabards in Cataclysm. They had some "flair".
Change for alts is welcome, but revered -> exalted double rep doesn't make any sense. Couldn't they just half rep bar instead?
Yay, let's cater more to the generation touched by the Sha of Entitlement. It's like you people WANT to run out of stuff to do so you can complain about how boring the game is.
So going from revered to exalted requires less then honored to revered? Lol I don't even..
