Games are not necessarily "easier" today. You are just a better player.
It takes more now to impress many gamers than it did 2-5 years ago, because so much has already been seen and done.
Many players expect to be wow'd with every release of a beloved franchise.
These are generally NOT the fault of the developers, but the fault of many players over-hyping and/or setting expectations too high.

ahaha, u stull have to do dailes to get elder charm coin, while ppl was whining to give alternative way, ahah good trolling blizzard
8 year olds Dude.
If raiders want other alternatives to get charms, I'm sure they'll also be fine with a questing alternative to get raid loot, right? Oh, wait...
Not even sure why people are talking about 25 man raids anymore, they are so dead. Nobody hardly does them as a guild and nobody does them as pugs, it's frustrating coming back when I did and seeing it go from 25s everywhere to no 25s hardly at all.
Now they just need to address the fact that a lot of us are overflowing with lesser charms. Need to be able to turn in more than just once a week/
The more I read about the upcoming patch notes legendary items / charms etc.. The more i understand whats going on. Blizz trying to keep us busy grinding LFR legendarys ... in my opinion .. a legendary is legendary and Should be alot harder to Obtain than jumping around in LFR ....??? In otherwords. Is this some cheap trick to secure players ..?
I laughed and cried at the same time when I saw "Patch 5.2 adds another way to earn Elder Charms, through daily quests"
Jesus christ blizzard.
Lets say that elder charms were available for repeatedly going in circles on your mount for an hour in a pure white room. Basically, think of the most boring thing in the game possible for you. This also rewards charms, and is the only way to get said charms. Would you be disgruntled by this? Because that's how I feel about charms and daily quests.
Dailies are lazy programming.
"After you faction completes the War Effort enough to unlock the Lighting Forge"
As far as I know lots of servers have very VERY unbalanced (size wise) faction populations. This could turn out to be utterly horrible for those people stuck on some server where their faction is in the minority, not only are they stuck on that new PVP island being gank fodder but to progress along the questline they are forced there.
Ofcause if it's superduper simple to unlock the Lighting Forge it might be less of an issue, or they'll enable CRZ on the island. Don't know which is worse ...

I posted this link a while back.
The last post is what I am talking about.
Long Story Short
25heroic guild with 2 ferals in the raid.1 into dailies the other not.Dailies feral got gear quick from Bonus Rolls and was able to outbid the non dailies feral when the Polearm from Spirit Kings dropped.All of you as a present or former Raiders/Heroic Raiders feels that its ok that you can outbid someone over a heroic (or normal,after all a raid weapon is a raid weapon) just because you gathered 4 tongues and 11 feathers day after day?
You can only use them on raid bosses,nowhere else
Who would go against the proposal that Elder Charms dropping only from Raid Bosses?And Why?
It is meant to be a bonus.
You are meant to earn them outside of raiding not during raiding.
If it dropped from raiding why would they just not up the loot drop rate because that in effect is the same thing?
Do I think they should be obtainable in other ways, sure I can 100% see that (I am not a big fan of them dropping from heroics but would be fine with it).
As as a reward from Challenge Modes sure.
As a chance out of the loot cache in Scenarios sure.
But dropping from raiding, no-way it is a completely pointless item at that point.
Does anyone know on PTR if there is now a weekly cap on how many you can spend?
Seems odd they raised that cap and if there is no cap on spending everyone can spend 20 a week? Seems extreme!
