This looks like a fun and interesting quest that would alleviated or avoided any frustration I felt at doing dailies that day had it come up. There are a few like that I've found and Blizzard deserves some praise for making quality quests when they come up. So what is the problem? I never knew that quest existed until today. As a matter of fact, I've still never seen it in the game. Quite understandable for someone whose a fresh 90 or ignores the daily quests. Except, I'm Exalted with Golden Lotus on this character and revered on another... At a minimum that's some 15-20 days of dailies where it was a possibility to show up.
Hopefully someone can tweet this to GC so he can see it more directly. This is one of the few cases where I find a legitimate use for Twitter. Not that I expect anything out of it, but I'm at the point where I'm more than happy to let Blizzard know that there are people who can appreciate their good quest ideas even as they (Blizzard) shove a dull serrated knife in the persons back by locking them out of those interesting quests, despite putting in all the work Blizzard forces on us to see them.
