Recently I have been spending quite a bit of time in World of Warcraft playing the Mists of Pandaria expansion. On the whole I am really enjoying the new content, even though leveling from 85-90 took a bit longer than I expected, it was a matter of a week casual game-play. I did the first LFR raid released and all of the heroic dungeons. They all well made, bug free and allot of fun.
My only issue so far are the dailies. Oh my god there are a ton of dailies. You may ask why this is a problem? If you don't like dailies simply do not do them. Well the issue is that in MoP you cannot buy any Valor level gear without having achieved at least Honored reputation 4 factions (Revered for most gear). In its self Honored is not that hard to get, so I was able to unlock Honored with 2 of the factions so far, which allows me to buy a Valor Ring and Necklace. However I cannot unlock dailies for a Shado-Pan faction unless I first reach Revered with the Golden Lotus. With about 100-150 reputation per daily quest and 12000 reputation needed (80-120 dailies). To unlock all of the valor gear I need to do around 400 daily quests (adjusting for various rep gains fro.
So I like many players have some build up Valor points and nothing to do with it. At this point running Scenarios & Dungeons have very diminishing returns. I basically need to roll up my sleeves and do my dailies.
See you in Pandaria
