    It's AUGUST CELESTIALS. August as in dignified and majestic, pronounced awe-GUST instead of AWE-gust. Not the month. I know it's not a common adjective anymore but sheesh.

    In fact the month August was named after the first Roman Emperor, Caesar Augustus. His full name was Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus Augustus - he was born Gaius Octavius, but was adopted as an adult (common in Rome at the time) by Gaius Julius Caesar. Adopted Romans took the family name of the adopting family (Julius Caesar) and put their old surname on the end with an -anus suffix to denote their origins. He was given the title "Augustus" by the Senate after his victory over Marc Antony and Cleopatra. It meant the same thing it means now, grand or majestic. So it's not actually a coincidence.

    P.S. I like the Shado-Pan and August Celestials dailies!

    Maybe go to....*gasp* a different server! It seems a lot of your whining is about the excess of players in those areas. Go to a less populated server.

    I found Shado-Pan and August Celestials a relieve compared to Golden Lotus imho. Golden Lotus took the longest to do per day, the longest to get Exalted with and all three parts were the same, not just design, but also mob wise. While Shado-Pan had 3 different enemies (yes, Mogu included, but there where serpents too..), Golden Lotus was just: Mogu, Mogu everywhere, and the amount of quests were too much, i think a total amount of 15-20 quests it would've been, and while with Shado-Pan the rep doubles itself after honored/revered, GL was always 100 rep..However, the worst quest ever would be the strong brazier quest at the temple of the white tiger, that quest is just horrible, good thing i'm Exalted in 2-3 days..

    But yeah, I have changed my mood about dailies as well. Up until now I have done all dailies possible, but I have begun skipping some. I didn't do the anglers today because they all involved fishing (horrible drop rates ftl), and I probably won't do anymore Klaxxi dailies until I hit exalted with the Golden Lotus.

    I really think Blizzard added too many factions to rep grind.
    Are you talking about the Angler's fishing dailies or Nat Pagles rep grind....you do known they are separate of each other right? Yes you will get some angler rep when you turn in 1 of those special fish to Nat but he is own rep grind away from Anglers. Getting exalted with Anglers is easy as pie....

    I'm able to kick back atm, the only dailies i have to do is the AC ones and the cooking daily which takes 15-20 mins in total. The only annoying dailies for me was the Golden lotus stuff.

    The way i looked at it was - it was something to do instead of sitting in seven stars / SW, rewarded me with some of gold, got some vp's so didn't have to do as many hc dungeons or scenarios, quests are usually pretty quick to complete & good chance at some world pvp.

    Now that i've done everything except AC it feels great and i'm looking forward to the 5.1 stuff.

    Yea, they should cut rep gains further by 2-3 times, then that brilliant content would last even longer. /sarcasm

    Y'all who aren't fans of quick rep must not have 10 toons all trying to max out professions. I have a tailor who finally unlocked the patterns from GL. I have a inscriptionist I'm still trying to level to 90 to level up Tillers so I can start farming motes and making hot items, like fans. I have an engineer who's in the same boat wanting to make guns. (Etc. etc. etc. for each profession)

    I'd love a chance to get my peeps to 90, but the 3+ hours I spend on my tailor doing dailies nukes the amount of time I can devote to just getting my other toons leveled. I have 2 90s, 3 87s and the rest are barely started in MoP. It's retarded.

    And I'm quite sure the vast majority of players are more in my boat of wanting to level alts to 90 and work on dailies with them, then the few (though very vocal) who only have 1 toon, is already exalted with all the factions and thinks anyone who hasn't put in the time and sweat that they did are just mouthbreathing casual raiding tard who want free loots.

    Just so you know, you're wrong.

    This is exactly why Blizzard was hesitant for 2 expansions after dailies were introduced to remove the daily quest limit per day. The players insisted they could police themselves and didn't need to be nannied by Blizzard and the forced limit was unnecessary.

    Blizzard says "okay, you're mature enough to handle your impulses" and removes the cap. Then we get this flood of "too much to do" complaints.

    It's easier to max and gear alts now than it was at the same point in any other expansion. I bet this is the first time you've tried to max 10 characters at the start of an expansion. Hell, even at the end of Cata when epics were falling from the skies you still have to grind through MF to get recipes.

    How many characters did you grind through MF on, I wonder.

    Awesome! I'm so glad I get my free loots by simply not doing dailies.

    /sarcasm

    It's not the fact that we don't like doing them - it's different for different people. I'm sick of the low drop rates that garner me 3-10 silver from grey items and no other purpose. I'm sick of having to fight with 20+ other people all doing the same thing, killing the same mobs and waiting for respawns. The quests themselves are fine. The mechanics are what need to be adjusted - or at least a reasoning as to why all the goats look the same, but 10% are secretly fatty. Either make some fat, so I know which to kill, or make them all drop steaks.

    Blizzard has made it clear that the game has gotten too loose on having a "Main" vs "Alts" in this respect. I have 11 characters on my server and I'd like to get them all to 90 and have them all maxed on professions with access to some of the rep patterns, but in no way does that mean I need Blizzard to design the game around conveniently enabling me to do so in 2-3 months of release. You have TWO FRIGGIN' YEARS to worry about alts.

    3, though only 2 got the mount.

    I was fine with Cata though, I had 2 raiding toons. The rest were just support. Now, all my support toons have to get to 87 to unlock the Vale of Eternal Blossoms to get the recipes to finish out their profession (Tailor, Leather and Blacksmithing, specifically). But even then, everything is gated by spirits of harmony - and they aren't readily available until after 90 and after revered with Tillers.

    So, before I can even reasonably get to raiding, given my small guild/server population, I need to get my support toons up to 87 at a minimum. Which I'm doing, but the daily grind isn't helpful.

    But whatever. It's all my singular problem because I chose to live on a small server and have no friends to help enchant and gem me or make me nifty purple items. I get it - it's an mmo and I play it like a SPG. Because it literally has the best game play of any game I have ever played ever. I'd play WoW single player if they offered it. I'd play any other game SPG or MMO, if it had the same (or better - lol) game play. They don't. Sorry Blizz has made the perfect game for my play style. Get over it.

    Sweet - so my main gets to kick it for two years in green level gems and blue armor because my poor alts are relegated to the dung heap because everything is gated for enjoyment by your one main toon.

    wicked awesome.

    Of all the dailies the tillers and August celestials are the quickest and easiest to finish. In fact these 10 quests are the ones I will be farming each day for valor and coins after I max out with both. The most annoying celestial one is the torch carrying one, but I found a way around it. You walk outside the chains and on the outside edges of buildings to avoid 90% of the tornados. The goat steak one is the most annoying tiller quest and I can choose to just not do it.

    The nice thing about AUgust is that the dailies get switched up often enough that its not so mind numbingly painful as Klaxxi and Shado Pan.

    As for gearing up in LFR you get a chance on every boss to get gear with 3 rerolls a week, I have unlocked 15 bosses so far so even with a 15% chance to get LFR loot 18 times a week I pull down 1-3 pieces each week. One guy in my guild is just as geared as I am (476) and he hasn't done a single daily quest and our guild has not started regular raids yet. Half our members are ready.

    I play an hour a day and 4-6 hours on friday, I valor cap by Friday night/saturday morning, and then I have until tuesday to level alts with increased valor and soon double rep. If you can't find time to do your alts then either you don't have time for wow anymore or you need to learn how to spend your in game time more efficiently. I'm ilevel 476 and I have evey single LFR boss unlocked and am exalted with Klaxxi, Serpents, Tillers, Golden Lotus and Lorewalkers, revered with August (should be exalted today) and honored with Shadopan. If I can do it, anyone can.

    You can max out every single crafting profession without setting foot in Pandaria.
