If it requires raiding to get the reputation, then we're right back into the problem that Cataclysm exacerbated.

The problem is not that there will be a raid faction reputation, it is that the vp gear will be gated behind it but the upgraders will be removed. So we will be at a point where some players can't spend their vp.
Maybe WO's?

We are at that point now. I can't spend my VP on this toon as I am only friendly with all the factions and I hate dailies. Oh well I guess....

Considering you could do the welfare legendary gem from LFR, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to get rep from it.

But you can do dailies. Everybody can do dailies. Not everybody can raid. Even LFR is a challenge for me due to my blurry picture. You can also buy gear from the AH and upgrade that to spend your vp or do LFR/raiding and upgrade drops. That option will be taken away too.

If the rep has nothing to do with the legendary quest line then no it wont be in LFR. Plus it's not like a full set of gear is going to be gated behind the rep, 1-3 piece's for each class and spec probably. Rest will be crafting recipes/toys.

Cata? Is that the first time you encountered a raid rep? What about the ICC rep? Or the rep in Black Temple? Or how about Hydraxian Waterlords in MC? Brood of Nozdormu rep can only be obtained in AQ.

Seriously this is no big deal and dont see why people are throwing a fuss over it.

They stated that there wont be any vp gear gated behind the daily faction. And if they rely on crafted gear...my guess is that it will then be raid drop patterns and mats which I can't effort. So we go back to raiders get everything...hopefully not.

This is true, and I think - with how people are responding to dailies that its for the best. I like dailies and have been defending them but even I'm getting burned out. So its break time for a while.

I wonder then - what's the point of adding a new faction if there's no rep rewards though?

Learn to understand what the large word "exacerbated" means. It means that the problem (tying rep to raiding) was made worse. Now I understand that I use large words sometimes, but that doesn't mean you can go flying off the handle because you don't know what the word means.

Also, the valor reputation can be earned through the Raid Finder too but you need to kill bosses to get beyond a certain threshold. So we probably won't see something like the old Icecrown Citadel reputation runs.

Explain how it was made worse. Cause in all honesty it's just the same stuff. Seriously tell me what was so different in the rep gain in Cata?

During Cataclysm, the raiders did indeed get richer at the expense of everyone else (and there wasn't LFR until the last raid). There weren't entry-level patterns other than PvP. People hit an absolute brick wall unless they were a raider. Then came the Troll dungeons and the abject failure that was the Molten Front (I've posted about how MF was a failure during the MoP beta and how it's best to not repeat "the spire came back--take it again" every single friggin' day).

In other versions of WoW, there was always another way to progress in the storyline and with gear. Not so in Cataclysm, because it catered to raiders and then went into massive spinning because 2 million subs left. Once people hit that brick wall, there was no going back.

There should be multiple ways of progression.

PS--This is coming from a person who did two Ramkahen dailies to Exalted on my Paladin without that character ever setting foot in a single Cataclysm dungeon due to the brick wall. The couple of dungeons were done on other characters. I know what a horrific grind is from doing just two dailies to Exalted. The system in-game right now isn't horrific by a long shot.

I am very tired if hearing people cry about not getting this, that, or some other thing because it is a reward for an activity they choose not to do.

Blizzard put in LFR so those who cannot commit to a regular raid team can see the content, and I think that is fantastic. However, this seems to have people confused. Gear does NOT equal content.

If you want the rewards (gear), then do the work. There is nothing hard about this concept. There is no such thing as "can't" in this game, rather you choose whether or not to do something.
