This quest requires you to be Exalted with the Klaxxi to get. You would need to do all of the dailies for weeks to access this quest reward.rings with an item level of a rather surprising 489 from Shadow of the Empire in the same zone
This quest requires you to be Revered with the Golden Lotus to access.In the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, Battle Axe of the Thunder King awards an ilvl 463 chest.
This quest requires you to be Honored with the Golden Lotus to access.The Secrets of Guo Lai in the same zone awards ilvl 440 rings.
I don't understand why you are posting this under a thread entitled, "How to Get Geared For Raiding Without Ever Doing a SINGLE Daily" when it is very cleared that beyond the Klaxxi, you would have to do dailies to access any of the other items you listed there. In fact, you can't even access Shado-Pan and August Celestials rep until you get Golden Lotus to Revered. So why even post this?6. Valor PvE Gear[/B]
We posted here on GAMEBREAKER a while back about PvE gear reputation requirements being rolled back. Since October 2nd, the reputation requirements to purchase certain pieces of Mists of Pandaria Valor Point gear have been reduced from Revered to Honored (which you can be just from questing). These include:
Klaxxi – neck items
Golden Lotus – rings
Shado-Pan – cloaks
August Celestials – bracers
If you’re not doing dailies it’s highly unlikely that you’re going to have honored with any faction, except perhaps the Klaxxi. Do head over to their Quartermaster and see if the neck items are available to you, and check your other reputations just in case!
How do you access Golden Lotus rep without doing dailies? Why is this even being listed as an option for Tailors when they can't access the pattern without doing dailies? The 496 items I somewhat understand, as the patterns are BoE, but the 476 items make no sense. Yes, the items themselves are BoE, but the patterns require dailies to unlock.7. Professions
Most professions have the capacity to craft items of Raid quality, and many of the patterns are Zone Drops or require only honored reputation with Golden Lotus. Nonetheless, Golden Lotus Honored is very likely to require daily quests, and that’s not our objective today. Should you happen to have Golden Lotus Honored already, check out what you can buy. Have a look at your professions, a great one is Inscription which allows the creation of several ilvl 476 weapons. Engineers can yet again craft helms, ilvl 476 this time and recipe drop crafts award 496 items..
Isn't it the most obvious thing for all that you don't need dailies to get gear for raiding? Anyways people do dailies to get gear for raiding because raiding is a grp activity and if 1 person in a raiding guild does dailies everyone has to do them and everyone has bad time because of being forced to do dailies. You can always choose not to be in a raiding guild but a few wow players like raiding.

Halfway geared is pretty generous. You're definitely halfway something though.

You don't even need that much. Quest to 90, run heroics, 1 or 2 craftables, and you're LFR ready. Proceed as usual.

I personally don't mind dailies and do them because I want the mounts and quest rewards you can get at exalted, plus the gold is a nice bonus.
However I wanted to say thanks for taking the time to post a thread like this. It'll definitely be helpful if I decide not to do dailies on my alts when I get around to leveling them but still want to be able to take them into LFR, etc.
Not to mention the fact that's he's a Warrior wearing a Leather helm.

Mounts as a point is kind of Void. Since in the past 9 times out of 10 they were always PURE LUCK. Maybe you get the Blue Proto-Drake on your first clear of UP .. Or maybe it takes you months of clearing it every day to finally get it. Either way mounts have always been either Luck and/or a massive time investment, so those being on dailies I believe is fair. PLUS we're talking about CHARACTER PROGRESSION here in regards to gear, Mounts aren't really progressing your character Gear-Wise.
I admit that casuals who only do LFR WILL hit a Brick wall eventually where they get EVERY possible gear piece from LFR and Sha and then they will have nothing left to upgrade. But unless you're absurdly lucky, that will take a VERY long time. And isn't the point that LFR is there for Casuals? It's expected that they won't ever need gear that's higher because LFR is as much time as they can afford to put into this game? And if you're able to convert some more time on the game, go join a PUG MGV or something on Friday Night.. Saturday during the day... There's so many options it's ridiculous.

My weekly podcast can be downloaded here this week a bad experience at an EB games store poses the question is the customer always right?
got my alt to 460 without any dailies just get to 90, do 3-4 heroics, some crafting, BoEs, some JP gear. just use common sense, you dont need a guide
Person B does not want to grind rep. Buys nice upgrade off AH.
Person A makes some profit(hopefully) and is happy that the recipe he repped for made him some gold.
Person B is happy to get an upgrade that he didn't need to grind rep for.
Sounds like it's a well functioning economy in a MMO to me.
1. Cenarion Circle is an RP Realm
2. He has Mogged it into Cursed Vision of Sargeras... Plus he is a Night Elf.
3. His Forum Avatar is of a Cartoon version of Illidan, so I think safe to say he's an Illidan Fan.
So what can we conclude from that information? He clearly was probably running around town or Goldshire (whatever I don't know what the hell they get up to on RP servers) with the helm because it 'Looks Cool' because of the Transmog. Safe to say, I don't think he ACTUALLY uses a leather helm.
Of course that doesn't excuse the fact that he's got; terrible reforging, rubbish gems and no enchants .. But whatever, he can play, gem and enchant however he wishes. The point stands that this casual lad has easily reached ilvl high enough to even enter MSV Normal Mode if he wished, and not a single daily was done.
