you can farm honoured - exalted in about 12 hours by running regular steamvaults, probably more as we did it recently with 2 level 60s and 1 80 prot pally, to get guardian of cenarius for alts lol.
Those reps are fkn easy to grind now, we did diplomat outlands reps in about 18 hours over a long weekend period for fun. So now you have no excuse
But back to my previous statement, im not complaining for the sake of complaining, im expressing my dislike for something that well, i dislike. theres nothing wrong with that, but when people scream I DONT LIKE IT FKN CHANGE IT BACK FFS then your arguement is valid. To you it might not seem unique or special but there are some of us out that did ill still collect the argent crusade hippogriff eventually its just gone from priorty to last on my list of mounts to get (77/100 fk my life)
