I got through a total of 3 days of Golden Lotus dailies (ONLY) before I'd had enough and quit. I wasn't overdoing it either. Just two factions at a time (Tillers/Serpents), I'd finished those, took a week off, and just couldn't do anymore. Getting dragged through heroics/scenarios where nothing drops for over a month and nothing to show for it but gear points I couldn't spend and repair bills from consistently terrible pugs(gear's so crap it can't be upgraded)?No. Just no more.
no kidding i just finished the original panda factions and 5.2 comes out with another faction and more dailies by the time i finish shield wall this patch will come out with even more dallies its like every time i finish a faction another one lines up to take its place i think Al Puchino said it best "just when i thought i was out they pull me back in" at this rate ill be doing dailies for the duration of pandaria say what you will about past expansions but i was finished with my dailies in the first 6 months of cata and never had to worry about it again (except for when firelands came out)
i keep seeing people that say "i only did 10 dailies a day and got exalted" the entire golden lotus chain alone is 18 dailies so what your saying is that you never finished the chain? another thing i was doing on average 30 dailies a day give or take and i still had most of klaxxi to go when 5.1 hit now granted i had missed more then a few days and i was only doing 2 factions at a time (thats right 2 factions 30 dailies on average) and i know people who could not even do that now lucky (and unlucky) for me i have no functioning guild so my gear progression makes no difference and i have neither time or patience for LFR and do not even get me started on randoms (half way through my first time through a dungeon and i wanted to blow my brains out) that only part that i found semi enjoyable are scenarios but they give almost no valor and there is only so many scenarios a guy can do before going mad and that and dailies is basically my only choice for progression and battle pets actually makes the repetitive daily grind and doing dungeons actually seem fun by comparison
pandaria is being treated like the retarded kid its so stupid that you feel bad pointing out all its flaws
I can only speak for myself, but what fell short for me with all of the dailies was just the Golden Lotus barrier. Prior to launch I was really wanting to know all about the Shadopan. I did all of the quests in Townlong Steppes and when I hit 90 I was jazzed about doing their dailies. Then I found out about Golden Lotus. What started as a minor nuisance evolved into a heated disgust for the Vale. The amount of quests coupled with the small gains in rep each turn in made it feel like a slow, mud-caked trek uphill. I got to revered after a month and never looked back. For me at least, Golden Lotus is a massive headache. I can't be bothered to do them on any alts, so they just sort of sit there. I still log into my main to do dailies for other factions, but I don't care anymore. I just do them for the coins, for my raid team and to kill time between LFR queues. So when I read "new dailies" I'm not moved. Not trying to be inflammatory, petty or childish. It's just why haven't been behind the daily-train.
:O More dailies :O Shocky ducky quack quack O.O
I sincerely died a little inside when I saw there will be more dailies.
In a Blizzard programmer reunion:- "hey guys we need some time to work on Blizz next game, what should we do to keep players busy while not having time or motivation to create and expand Warcraft to be fun?"- "We could create a farm were they would have to farm daily."- "Wait thats too easy lets create a farm where we create toons were they have to farm rep daily while farming daily."- "Hummm yeah and why not dailies to get token to get special ingredients and to make sure they don't get 600 skill without farming daily we could split cooking into many more branches of cooking where they would farm daly tokens to buy the special ingredients while farming daily the dailies of farming... " - "Good idea, what else?"- "Lets create new factions with daillies that gives 100 rep per quest instead of regular 275 and lets create a commendatation that gives double rep when players have grinded two or three weeks so they only have to grind another 2 weeks to get exalted and only 3 more weeks to get an alts exalt."- "Ok that gives us about 2 months before they can gear up with rep epics, whats with the valor or LFR gear ?"-" I know, lets cap valor to 1000 per week, they would be doing about 3000 anyways with dailies only, that way they wont be able to get more than 1 piece of gear every 2 weeks and LFR will only drop an average of 1 piece per week per all 5 LFR so its not a problem. Regular raids are tough enough to make sure they progress at least 2-3 month (for casual players) before they get the final boss so it gives us the time to create more patches with more factions with more dailies to keep them busy until we announce the next expansion with new factions and more dailies and new patches with more factions and new dailies until we finally announce Titan due date that we will delayed 2 years so we will have time to create new factions with more gear grinded with dailies." - "wouldnt it be a bit exageretaed?" - "Bahhh the game has already been renamed World of Farming daillies, so who gives a S****?"- " You're right after 8 years Im sick of my job anyways lets get lazy."end of reunion.Mike to Jeff:- "Nice ideas there pal, how's youre wife ? have you been farming her daily ?"- "No, I raid her once a week only."
It takes me 2hours and 30minutes to do all the dailies in Pandaria.
dailies are fillers in wow, once u get revered or exalted dont do em, theres not really that many dailies u need to do, when im on one of my dps when waiting for lfr or a heroic i do dailies, there an easy way to make gold, they add more b/c when the patch is released u dont need to do ANY of the other dailies.
Well, dailies suck if you have many alts, but otherwise I don't know why ppl make such a big deal out of them. You can choose to do them or not. The real problem with dailies is the rep gain is way too low. It takes too long to hit exalted and gain acces to worthy rewards. Blizz should either increase the rep gain from dailies (and a little more gold wouldn't hurt) or make commendations avaliable at Honored... cause, seriously... Cata dailies gave almost the same amount of gold... and with the Black Market prices... makes it almost impossible to bid for a rare mount (Firehawk, Invincible, etc) if you haven't been playing the game for more than 3 years...
I couldnt really address why everyone else hates dailes... And I don't hate them, I just find it tiresome that recipes I need are gated behind dailies. I didn't have the foresight for my tailer and my enchanter to be the same char, So in order to get those oh so handy weapon enchants I have to go for Golden Lotus > Shado Pan. And in order to get the wrist enchants its Golden Lotus > August Celestials. and wait, you want new bags... well get crackin thats Golden Lotus > August Celestials to exalted.. And of course they all needed Tiller faction so they could grow songbells. At least they dropped the exalted klaxxi from the BS plans (since that was a 3rd char that had a faction grind).Ok sometimes I'm slow, but it took me awhile to figure out..that I didn't need "friends of the farm" ach (hunting all those meats was a pain) in order to grow songbells.Its not that dailies are a pain. They are fine individually, but some of us got used to being able to do things with multiple characters and now we really can't. Im not trying to raid (not even LFR) but I am trying to play 4 characters reasonable competantly in dungeons and unless you want to be told you suck, that means gear must be at least 450 and gemmed/enchanted (which is a waste of chanting mats on ilvl 450 gear... but that is another topic - and chanting mats are plentiful)
Dailies is not part of lore i think. Maybe first time or second,but no more..Doing same dailies over and over again is just boring. Thats why i'm doing dailies only with my main.How many this time btw? I hope not more than 5.
