OK, let's argue.
I'm a bit disturbed by your company's about-face lately, trying to go back to an alt-unfriendly grindfest. Battlefield Barrens, grind, grind, grind. Achievement not account-wide (first non-account-wide achievement since Brawler's guild, with absolutely no reason other than just to make us grind more), so do the grind, grind, grind on all your alts!
Now, we grind, grind, grind mobs for Shaohao rep. Sure, there's now one daily, but it's still just one long, Classic-style grindfest. And the Bigger Bag achievement, have to collect all the items on a single character. Get some super-rare item on an alt, too bad, so sad. I know I'll never get the achievement because I got my Ruby Droplet on my hunter and I am not going through another week+ of camping one rare. And I'll likely never max my rep with Shaohao because I got my fill of grindfests eight years ago. I thought we'd moved past this kind of design.
I actually see the past two patches as steps backward on your guys' part.
