Can we also bring back the tabards earning rep system? That way I can grind rep, gear, achievements, and jp/vp at the same time. Being a college student with a job I won't have the time to grind out dailies and get left behind in the dust, and loved the old method of doing dailies and dungeons to get the needed rep.
That's why they were taken out. One activity should not yield the rewards of multiple activities, making other play choices undesirable if not obsolete.
Also, your request is a little off-topic for this thread. It's sometimes best to start your own thread rather than bringing up one on a different topic, or keep searching for something about tabards for rep rather than a specific change to rep gain.

Now see, your answer is your own opinion and I really don't understand why it should matter how people choose to grind rep, gear, or whatever. I liked the tabards that gave rep myself. They were an enjoyable part of the game. What we have now is awful and I've already cancelled my sub. Trying to figure out how to boost my i-level just to do the 470 i-level raids, since it will be weeks before i can purchase any rep gear (if I even waste my time grinding the rep) is straight up dumb. And in contrast to Cata's LFR where I had so much fun with gear drops that I was leveling multiple alts to 85 just to do LFR, I don't even feel like wasting my time with my one main in MoP's LFR.
Not seeing loot drop in raids is a ridiculous decision by blizzard since seeing gear drop after a boss kill is half the fun of the boss fight. It's also half the motivation to come back because yous see gear that you want.
With rep, I dont completely dislike grinding rep, but I do when I'm told how fast i can grind it and by being limited to only a few daily quests a day. Having Shado-pan rep stop right before honored and forcing you to grind up to revered with Golden Lotus before you can continue doing Shado-Pan rep is downright asinine. There is a lot of good stuff in MoP, but a lot of horrible decisions as well.
Gearing and getting rep in MoP is by far the worst stuff in wow that I've seen in a while, marring an otherwise enjoyable system.
