I think that adding in the system you describe - you get a capped 12,000 rep for this turn-in or that turn-in, etc. - would actually complicate things more than help them. I know you may be exaggerating the way you min-max rep a bit, but reputation has never been easier or more straightforward, imo. It's also clear that daily quests are the way future rep grinds (at least at the level cap) are going to go . Honestly, reputation in Outland is done extremely well in both giving you something to work for, but not dread. I'm still not exalted with Argent Dawn, one of the easiest pre-BC reps to grind, but exalted with nearly every faction in Outland.That, to me, is an indicator of a successful reputation system.

I second that. Argent Dawn was horrible. I'm still only Revered with them...

Yeah, anyone complaining about the BC reputations needs to go back and do the old world reps. I'm exalted with all horde factions, Argent Dawn AND Timbermaw. Now THOSE are harsh grinds - and I have a deep respect for any alliance character crazy enough to get a frostsaber.Blizzard has done a good job improving things IMHO. I think the Sha'tari Skyguard is a great model. Good rep gains through daily quests, and if you REALLY want to grind it out, you can. I do think that static rep gains are a great idea however. Feeling screwed over because you did things in the wrong order is a horrible. And it would be a superb option to be able to grind, do some quests, grind or whatever just to break up the monotony of doing one thing. I'm probably going to regret doing that one Thorium Brotherhood quest too early...
