    It comes down to how you want different areas of the game to overlap.

    If you are a raider and not interested in anything else in the game, should you still be supposed to run solo content (dailies), group content (dungeons/scenarios) or even PvP content to have your character at the best possible situation when you log for raid.

    I personally prefer dailies (solo content) over the LFD/LFR tool, but I do agree that there probably could be some other options to get these charms.

    That being said, what if they implemented it so that they give you an option do do dailies either in a dungeon or in the world? That way you do get an option no matter what you decide is more fun.
    Or make scenarios give rep. Lot's of ways to go about it but apparently dungeons are just fine and rewarding now.

    I mean theirs a theoretical maximum rep you can get with each faction every day. Those dailies only go once a day right. So you figure how much that is, the sum total of all the daily quests you can do in one day for that faction and then set that number as the rep you can farm inside the dungeon with that tabard. I expect my pay cheque in the mail Blizzard.

    To be fair, a lot of people really enjoy min/maxing. Even if the actual effectiveness is negligible, they still enjoy the aspect of "being all they can be". So when they hit a roadblock to being all they can be, they will react with passion (and there is no shortage of passion for WoW....which is a good sign that the game is still cared about by a lot of people).

    I already hate those dailies :/

    They should let you do something with the excess charms. I have enough on my main character to stop doing dailies for a month and still complete that weekly quest. I'm going to have to start deleting them soon as I run out of bag space.

    That's really not the issue. The problem is that progress is throttled, and if you happen to miss/skip a day of progress, you will never be able to get it back. Being required to do daily quests for items other than vanity pieces is bad game design, leave the mounts/titles/pets for the grinds and leave the gear/recipes and stuff places that are obtainable without making the game a part time job.

    OHHHHHHHH THATS A BINGO. Colonel Hans Landa would approve. I think we all agree that progress has to be throttled some extent, I just don't think it has to be this much or in this fashion.

    This change is the best thing ever. All i see if wrath babies and cata babies QQ, they just want their free epics and be afk in SW again.

    Suggesting we make the dumb tokens purchasable for VPs... like, a lot of VPs.

    Like, 1000 VPs for 3 Gold Tokens.... so basically people who don't need VPs cause they actually have raid gear have something to use their VPs on, getting more rolls at heroic raid gear.

    Obviously open to suggestions, but the current implementation is retarded, since eventually I will no longer need to do dailies for reputation, but will be forced to keep doing them for more raiding tokens, especially when a new content patch hits (assuming content patches will have raids, a thing that was missing from their 5.1 preview).

    Dunno why this is so hard. You want elder charms, do dailies. You want raid gear, go raid. You want arena gear, go arena. How hard is it to do something specific if you want something specific?

    well... i got 6 elder charms waiting in my currency tab, and 300 lesser charms sittign in my bag.. if i wanted i could stop doing dailys for 3 weeks, and still get my elder charms, since you can only obtain 3 elder charms a week. and i don't even do the tillers dailys, and still not at the shado-pan and augustial celestrials or whatever they are called.

    but i agree, the daily grind is a bit too much.
    20 minutes on order of the cloud serpent
    10 minutes on the angelers
    20-30 on klaxxi
    30-40 on golden lotus

    thats 1½+ hour a day grinding non stop, + travel time, smoke break, other IRL stuff that i need to take care of, in the end i can maybe do dailys and a hc dungeon or 2, and thats it.

    but then again, the charms doesn't give you werry good gear in raids, or atleast have a werry small chance of providing raid gear.

    I would love to see being able to purchase items that increase your reputation with a faction using the excess charms, oh and make them BoA (!!). And why would they make Charm of Good Fortune be a currency, but the Lesser Charm of Good Fortune not? That's just dumb. At least they stack to 180 now, but even so, I still have four bag slots being taken up already. It'll only get worse when I unlock August Celestials and Shado-Pan, and I'm not even doing Cloud Serpent at the moment.

At 2 charms per quest and 6 coins (540 charms) plus 516 loose charms, you claim to have obtained roughly 525 daily quests worth of charms. That's over 40 daily quests per day. There's only a total of 48 daily quests in MoP, many of which require various reputation levels to unlock, so you didn't even have 40 daily quests available from the start. That's a best-case scenario. I don't need to express my skepticism any further.

    Why do I not want to do this? Because at a generous estimate of 5 minutes per quest (in reality it's often much more on a high-pop server) and 45 quests per week, that's 3.75 hours per week. In reality it's more like 5 hours a week, potentially more depending on what time of day you play -- if you try to do dailies at 6pm on Draenor, there's usually fifty to a hundred players at each quest spot. Playing approximately 3 hours per day, these daily quests take up something similar to 25% of my time, and I think I play enough to qualify as a fairly active player. Since I can't do them on the days I raid, it's actually more like 40% of my unscheduled time. And that's just the minimum to get my elder charms which, as I've previously explained, are not really optional for a competitive raider (unless you also consider things like flasks, gems and enchants optional). Can you see why I'd like alternative ways to accomplish this?

    With JP being largely useless, this seems like an excellent alternate source of charms. It'll put many more tanks and healers back into dungeon queues, which is just good for everyone. Blizzard missed a golden opportunity to fix a problem there. It'd also take some stress off of the overcrowded daily quest areas, which is sorely needed.
    You doubt my word? Fine, I will have to prove it then:


    You don't want to do the dailies? Fine, but don't come to me complaining you don't have enough charms for the elder coins, they are bonus rewards for those who do have the time.

    Edit: took away a couple of names from the first screen shot.

    well, i have 6 elder charms, and 536 lesser ones (could have more, but im already exalted with cloud serpent, so i dont do their dialies anymore), means i could have about 15 elder charms. not bad after 2 weeks of expansion.

  15. #295
    I have something to the effect of 700 charms in my bags. So I'm pretty sure I could skip a week or two of dailies and be alright.

    Indeed, there are apparently some however who doesn't think that's possible...

    And no noselacri, I cannot understand why you would want another option to get the charms... It's an optional bonus reward for those with the time... And you knew what you got yourself into when you chose a high/full populated realm didn't you?

    I just reallized, that I enjoy doing the dishes more than doing Golden Lotus dailies. That makes a quality game.

    On the bright side, when a boss is not dropping anything relevant for you, you don't need to spend a charm on it.

    The problem with having max rep per day is that it kills things like egg farming for Netherwing and Cloud Serpents, rep for killing creatures (like for Black Prince rep), and the hiddenish dailies that are available.

    I understand some of the point people are trying to make about the dailies, however, the main point behind removing the cap and adding in tons of dailies, was to add variety. It was not put there to try and increase the work load of players. For one, it is to allow someone with only a day or two to play, the same availability of things, as someone that could do a few per day. You don't have to do every single quest every single day.

    How? Your not making EVERY faction have a max rep gain only the ones with tabards. Don't give cloud serpents a tabard then. They don't have any gear so I could really give a fuck less.
