Nobody is asking for handouts. We want an alternate way to "work" for the gear. You really think doing the same mindless dailies over and over and over is more work than successfully completing group content with random strangers you've never met before, and likely will never meat again?
Tedious != hard.
In this case it apparently is both.
I am assuming that Blizzard has gone to the side of "fairness" and made everyone work on the same type of basic reward system to attempt to rekindle BC-era glory days and see just how many folks were willing to put their money where their mouth was when crying about the good old days (Blizzard should never listen to those people imo, they will instantly find something else to whine about, or only enjoy themselves by watching the "plebians" suffer).
Wanting an alternate system is understandable, not everyone likes dailies (I am getting sick of them myself, especially all the "kill X, Y, and Z" as a healer with no DPS gear for his OS). The problem is that Blizzard is most likely worried about making it feel "equal" to dailies. Equal amount of dedication, time put in, and so on. I doubt that's easy to do, and might be a lot of work, and people might end up having problems with that too, and want something else again, bringing it back to square one. I can just see the "Even dailies were better than this" threads now.
I like the idea mentioned earlier about making tabards award rep and become BoA, but I think that ultimately that would lead to an "empty world" again when everyone grinded a tabard and passed it around to whatever alt. Then again, people might just stop leveling alts when they think about the idea ofgoing through this daily grind again (I am NEVER going to do this crap again when i am done, just saying Blizzard).
I would like to see Lesser Charms be put to better use, I find their current implementation sloppy at best. Why all the emphasis on doing things outside of raiding and rewarding these charms when they are only used for raiding and anyone who is actually interested in dailies and exploration and whatever has literally no use for them? Why is it ok to grind these dailies for so long for these gear options but grinding Helm and Shoulder enchants are a nono? I don't really understand some of these things, they seem hypocritical at times.
