    If getting rep was less punishing somehow, I might not care as much. As it is, the character I raid on is the ONLY character I'm getting rep on, and only those reps I really need. I'm skipping August Celestials because I don't need any gear they have for me. I'm skipping whatever the hell teaches you to fly on the oversized long dragon mounts because I already have a ton of mounts and prefer the flying disk. (Frizbee mount was so good that I went and got it the first night I learned of it.)

    So no, I don't expect rep to become account-wide. I just expect to ignore most of it. If it were account wide then I'd go ahead and bite the bullet and grind it all out once. Who knows, maybe I'll do that someday - on a human, on a PVE server.

    YES! If there's one thing because of which I didn't want to change mains it was that I had 50 exalted reputations on my main including some hard ones to get like Silverwing Sentinels and didn't want to do that again.

    From a greedy player perspective... yeah i hope they do. Far as a rational thinking player... no i dont think it would be a good thing to do. Sort of torn really. For the most part all the reps i would have wanted BoA(aside from pandaria) were just to get mounts, so little point in that now. Also the way reps work with some places would make life a major pain in the ass. For example i have bloodsail admiral on just one of my toons and never grinded back that rep. So that one toon can not go to booty bay without serious issues... if they made rep BoA so that it was the same no matter the toon i used... then what? does that one toon go back to rev/exalted with booty bay? do the rest of my toons get booted from booty bay?

    This is just one of the issues with this idea. Now a form of giving rep, or rep gains to alts that might be ok. With MoP i care little about the reps, have no need for the gear and simply some day want to get the mounts to add to my collection. I think they need more then the 5.1 change to make MoP reps less hated as it stands right now. Not sure what, but its just not enough. I have tillers working on my main, however i would LOVE to be able to farm up the motes on my not yet 90 alt for BS recipes... oh look i have to do that rep all over again if i want to do that... no thanks. Over all seems this expansion has shunned alts all together aside from the account wide mounts/pets n stuff. With the new rep VP system, and crafting materials that can be wasted on your main you play a lot, and needed on an alt you only have for a profession and dont want to actually play.

    This reputation system was designed for those who whined about not having anything to do in game. Now ppl who want to spend a lot of time on game have things to do while others can just raid and gear up there

    Rather the items than the rep, tbh. (some items, not even all)

    True BUT MoP added a bunch of new features to entertain players at 90s such as farming, pet battles, scenarios, treasure hunting that dailies are now pretty much a unnecessary time sink.

    In an RPG nothing should be bound to an account, and everything should be bound to the characters that achieved those things. It's a pretty elementary part of the genre.

    Yes please! this is a game not a fucking work where I'd need to work 8 hours a day just to be exalted with my alts... one time grinding should be enough.

    You don't need to have exalted reputations on alts, you shouldn't even need to have an alt in a properly designed game.

    Not necessarily - dailies aren't really character progression but more player progression

    I think rep will eventually become account wide. Its another thing that holds people back from playing alts just as achievements once were. I don't know that we'll see it happen within the next expansion, but I do think it will happen one day.

    We have that already since WotLK.
    You can get commendations, those usually become BOA down the road and you simply send em to your toon.. Or, the specialty items become BOA.
    I know shoulder and head enchants are gone from the reputation table, but they have always been exclusive in the beginning and became BOA down the road.

    Reputation should be toon bound.
    It's the characters achievement. He/She developed through it's lifespan.
    It's now already changed that different Reps from different toons add up together for meta achievements.
    I don't really think that there's more needed than what the game already has on mechanics.
    Keep in mind the usual handling throughout the last expansions, as I mentioned.

    RPGs should be about character progression, not about player progression. That's the whole "role playing" part.

    People play alts because they like creating and trying out new characters and experience the game at it's fullest

    It doesn't have to be exclusive it can be both and should be both

    I'd rather not see them BoA, save what little character progression remains. But once you get enough rep on one character, all gear should be unlocked for every character even if it doesn't have enough rep.

    Enlighten me?
    Dailies became player progression just recently now only in regards of the mounts/pets you get. But this wasn't true before MoP with pets/mounts being acct wide.

    Every advantage you gain otherwise from dailies are still unchanged and character bound... Your character gets valor pts for better gear.
    Your character gets charms for additional loot rolls.

    This and with what they are coming out with in 5.1 make it so you can keep doing the same dailies or dungeon crawl if you so wish. i would rather have a reason to log in and get better at playing my alts main and off specs, then do the same dailies ive been doing for months.

    You get VP from dailies NOT rep. If every character became exaulted they would still need to do dailies to get VP so character progression would still exist
