/shrug3. normal mode bis .. srsly? as if someone realy cares for that^^
Apparently some do. oO
I really like them, but mainly because they're so few and easy to do as my class (SPriest).
At first, I was with the OP. This particular set of dailies bugged the crap out of me (no pun intended). I grabbed one of the Shado-Pan NPCs (the hunter) and my bag of supplies and headed out. I was apparently fail with the bag of stuff and my hunter friend was pulling things left and right (things I hadn't intended on pulling).
After that first day, I stopped taking a Shado-Pan NPC and I didn't bother with the bag of stuff. As a mage, I haven't had a problem since. Sure, I occasionally pull a few extra mobs, but it's a rarity. Of course, I no longer do those dailies as I am exalted and don't feel the want to go back.
Also, you are comparing the items with the next best, which is RNG dependant, meaning it might actually NEVER drop. Reputatoin items, which are BiS, are not RNG dependant.

Exalted with Shado Pan and i must say those dailies where one of the best/fastest there are. Done them mostly with no NPC help.
And another thing, there is something called inviting people to your party, to make it easier if its too hard for you.

And that might be a reason why there also is a "Know your role" achieve.....

I usually get the mogu or the firecamp dailies and only got the mantid one once which i did the rebel achievement for so i didn't really have any issues with them.
Either you are incapable of understanding or simply UNWILLING to see reason.I am not missing the point. The point is that he is doing the hub even because he doesnt like it, like i did it even when i didnt like it, because they are not optional. And you asked me if there was any BiS items in those dailies, i told you there was, and there were.
He will get his so called "mandatory omg non HC BiS item" whether he does the hub he dislikes or not.
Pros of leaving Sra'vess out:
-Less nerves spend on annoying stuff that isn't fun
Cons of leaving Sra'vess out:
- Needs a few more days to get his "BiS omg so important that I can't raid without it normal mode" item.
BTW: Shado pan items are Ilvl 489. There is no BiS in there due to lower item level.
The ring from Shieldwall is only BiS because it has Ilvl 496.
Well, at least now I know for sure that you are only trolling me. Of course you compare it to the next best option, everything else would be royally stupid.Also, you are comparing the items with the next best, which is RNG dependant, meaning it might actually NEVER drop.
This discussion is over.
Going from Golden Lotus to Shado-pan, doing Golden Lotus plus Shado-pan everyday, until reaching exalted with both was not fun. Shado-pan in general was awful. The mobs are always hugging your character with their kite mount. However, at the end of it all, you do get a free dragon (after some one time quests).
I have that problem in general.The mobs are always hugging your character with their kite mount.
My water elemental ALWAYS runs to the dead mob and stays on top of it when I want to loot. I swear it's doing it on purpose!
Hunter pets seem to be a tad smarter and stay next to me.
Weird. Shouldn't they use the same AI functions?
I have to say, well the golden lotus felt like it took ages to get anywhere with, I have never been more happy to get exalted with a faction then i have with the shado-pan, purely because of how much i hated doing to god dam dailies.
Shado Pan is my least favorite right next to cloud serpent. Shado Pan is a pain because you have to deal with an npc who doesn't help much at all, requires you to fly a long distance away to do the dailies (or in the least teleport to a closer island and fly to the next island), and you have to figure out ways to deal with too many adds when the guy you want already has 2 adds attached to him. Some classes mileage may vary of course.
My problem with cloud serpent is that a lot of those dailies require you to go into caves or beaches that are jam packed with mobs, like the hozen cave where if you let off an aoe you have to deal with aggroing the baby dragons who you were suppose to be collecting, not killing. And again, class mileage may vary but if there is one thing a frost mage hates is dealing with -more- and -more- adds as the fight goes on. My demonologist just eats more adds up for breakfast but a certain point you spend more time wading through the aggro then you need to.

Shado Pan is the only thing next to anglers that is not exalted. I dont care for either.
Use the rogue, prot warr or disc priest companion and the smoke bombs and u should be fine
I do shado pan on my DK and mage, NEVER had any problem, either im godlike or other ppl r..well..not very godlike
I put the laughter in manslaughter
Blood DK problems: to many ppl at daily place, cant pull 8packs *cries*
BF3>CoD Cola>Pepsi PC>Mac Xbox>PS3
Those were the ones i found most enjoyable out of the bunch, to be honest. The variety on the locations, of the following NPC, some fun achievements to go alongside them... i actually enjoyed them quite a bunch.
