I have decided that next month will be "Daily December"
Now that I have double rep gains I can finish getting exalted with my last remaining factions (GL, AC, and Angler's) and get the kite mount.
Then I can live my dream of pretending to be a Shado-Pan companion while doing dailies with my guildies and hover over them in my kite while they try to loot bodies and pick up quest items.

Go talk to some congas, Mr. Brown. Your opinion is irrelevant.
I've stopped doing dailies. I hate them more than I hate Horde,Draenei and Pandaren.
You need to take a few steps back. They are giving you stuff to do, granted you may not like all of it but they are providing them nonetheless. This isn't evil megacorp trying to snare you in some psycological trap and if you really believe that they are, you need to unplug.
They are not giving anyone anything. They are selling us a service. They did absolutely no more work creating a quest that is done more than once than if the quests were one time only. So, don't hand them a medal because they graced us with more repetitive nonsense to do while they collect a paycheck without doing any more work.
You need to stop drinking the kool-aid and get an opinion for yourself. They are an evil mega corp that is trying to fool us into thinking that one quest done 50 times is the same amount of content as 50 different quests.
But, on a positive note all the drones that love the daily quests got more of them down in kasarang.
As a side note I HATE DAILIES. They are the single worst thing in this game.

This made me laugh in an immature manner.

As far as enjoying the monotonous dailies the more you do them, I have absolutely no idea how that is possible. Every time I do one daily I feel my blood pressure rise along with my anger at the devs, CM's and people who defend the boring dailies.
11/29/2012 06:22 PMPosted by GunnyWhy is it irrelevant? I'm a player too. :(
Irrelevant because you're paid to play as well as refrain from any actual criticism of the game. Nobody expects actual valid critique of any game related matter from a Blizzard employee. Everything is sunshine & daisies and if players aren't having fun they by God they simply aren't doing it right.
11/29/2012 08:56 PMPosted by VulgrymThe more I did the Mists dailies, especially after hitting Revered with Golden Lotus -- that can be a little tedious -- the more I actually enjoyed them. I've never been a huge fan of daily quests, but I seriously like the Mists factions (and dailies) more than any before them. I think there's a nice variety in the setup of each faction's daily quests (i.e. Klaxxi buffs, Shado-Pan companion, etc.) that doesn't make it feel too redundant. This is particularly true since I tend to rotate through a couple of factions week to week. With my work/life schedule I'm someone who doesn't always cap Valor each week, so I know I don't need to do dailies every day if it just means I'll outpace my VP gains. Right now I have at least 3 pieces of epic gear unlocked reputation-wise that I just need to save up for.
Look, I've typically shouted down the "dailies are mandatory" whiners ... but for one reason only -- they didn't take much effort and I was able to "get rid of them" quickly. I'd probably feel differently if I actually cared about maintaining an alt.
But let's be honest, questing is the lowest form of content. It is boring, repetitive and not challenging. Dailies, in and of themselves, are just a miserable lowlight in what is an otherwise impressive array of content in MoP. The raiding, challenge modes, brawler's guild, pet battles etc. have all been excellent. Dailies? Not so much.
I have been waiting for 5.1 to continue mine...and you know what? I've still been naughty and have not done them. Too distracted with all the new pets. :)
I should get moving again. I really want to do the Karasang Wilds ones, at least. Maybe tonight! :D
11/30/2012 03:17 PMPosted by GunnyThis just comes across as a sad attempt to say, "See, I can say bad things about the game." Throw out a few key negatives like 'gripe' 'sympathized' and 'nostalgic' to get players to think that yes, a CM can be critical of a Blizzard product. Nobody expects you to say bad things. I don't go on Facebook and disagree with things my employer does - watch the news and see where that gets people. I think what gets to me, and probably others, about CMs is that they take every thing people complain about and try to spin it. In the end it comes across like "Hey, we're not going to change that for you. You're either doing it wrong or you need to play a different part of the game." That doesn't give you cred as one of the 'gamers who makes games' like Blizzard tries to paint you all.

11/30/2012 04:03 PMPosted by MorrigahnAt the very start of the expansion we were asked "What is worth fighting for?" Fighting for Faction dominance is not worth it. It's the height of hypocrisy.
The result of an algorithm designed to establish my text as indistinguishable from the earthly "common" nomenclature. Did I succeed?All right, with that comment you have proved that you can troll.
NEED INPUT. NO DISASSEMBLE.
And only humans can be trolls. Which means Vol'jin is a troll.
The whole rebelling thing makes sense now!
On a side note, muffins.
