But there is a solution, and as we saw in September, it can be hotfixed into the game very quickly and easily -- remove the rep requirement from Valor gear. To go back to my first post in the thread -- what are we missing? What catastrophic problems does that cause that we are just not seeing? Because at this point, Blizzard is currently in a virtual war with their customers to prevent its implementation.We tried. Best attempt was 13% before they enraged.
I'll obviously get more gear from LFR than dailies because I'm not doing any dailies. My point is -- there's a doughnut hole of players who don't have the personal schedule that permits a daily-friendly lifestyle and who aren't in the highest quality raiding structure. I can't pug an MSV because the general population has more time than me so they did the dailies. So, I'm stuck. And there's no way for me to solve the problem on my own because the single method of deterministic PvE character progression at level 90 is entirely incompatible with my lifestyle.
So Warcraft's evolution into a daily-focused game means I probably should move on. Thus when my annual pass expires I will do so, unless Blizzard can deliver a real solution in production before that date. No promises or words either. I'll need an actual solution that fits my needs live before my AP expiration date. The last time I listened to Blizzard, it turns out their definitions and perceptions of reality were different than mine. In this case, it's not a who's right and who's wrong thing, but just an acceptance of the fact that their version of reality is not the same as mine, so I need to see actual results rather than read posts and promises.
it will take a little longer but there is not much that can be done to help you progress then to wait for loot of for a nerf, i really doubt there will be any major changes to the way things work right now at least till a patch after 5.1 hits, and to be honest, what difference it will make other then alts to have ilvl 489 by then? even you wont need this gear when that time comes.. unless you just stop now and wait without playing then yes maybe you will need those pieces but then i dont think there will be the same requirements for pugs anymore.
Explain to us -- what happens when rep is stripped off Valor items? Why is it so bad?
