I'm pretty sure I'm going to get voted down for saying this, but here goes:What?! The already ridiculously easy rep grinds of Wrath are being simplified, and basically nullified? Why not mail all 80s their shoulder enchants, head arcanums and various other rep reward nonsense. I mean seriously? You can grind to Exalted with any reputation via pure heroic dungeon farming (which you'll need anyway for Emblems to gear up) with minimal effort, and a tiny time investment.sigh.

Okay. Well some people don't have 5 hours a day, everyday, to run an endless amount of Heroics. This allows for better accessibility to casual players. Which is a good thing. Unless of course you don't want "noobs" to have what you have because you want to be the most uber ret pally EVAR!Seriously, this really is a good thing.

To all the whiners:I was just like you, once. To stuck up on how huge my own Hardcore E-peen was, until this dawned on me: What if Blizzard had Yearly Expansions?! How could we do a hardcore-two-year gear grind if the expansions were yearly? Then all your epic hardcore gear would be worth a HECK OF ALOT LESS. Therefore, it would have to be EASIER TO GET.Maybe WoW is no longer about being super-hardcore elite, but about, I don't know, Clearing Content and Having FUN. Now, I know most of you hardcore players don't play for fun. You play to get incrementally better stats so you can look down on everyone else. I used to do that too. But it's okay now, change is inevitable. Come into the light. Its warm and safe here, we have cookies and free epics.Cygerstorm, Shadow Council

How does that account for us PVPers?

I know I'm coming off as snobby and elitist which really isn't my intent, I promise. I used to be a pretty 'hardcore' raider myself- Magic Seeker, realm first Illidan kill back when he was serious, cleared Sunwell pre-nerf. I get that the game is changing, really I do.I have no problem with the easy epics, I get that too- means my soon-to-be 80 kitty/tree/bear thing will be ready to down Arthas all the sooner. This is great.I just think it removes some of the achievement factor when 'grinds' that may take a couple of days at worst are being hugely nerfed.TBC rep grinds? Horrible. Nerf them please and they were bad. I would've loved a tabard to farm TBC rep.Sorry for coming off as a huge elitist e-peen waver, honestly isn't my intent here. I just like the way things are: Easy. Or even 'normal mode'. We're getting close to 'centipede rolls on the keyboard and wins at Wrath mode'.

Why does it bother you so much?

Sometimes there just aren't enough QQs.

Making the rep grinds easier is stupid. They already have the answer. They're letting us use the primary rewards from those grinds on our alts without forcing the alts to do the grinds. Take that one step further and make ALL reputation rewards BoA, and the problem is solved. The rep grinds can stay as they are, but people don't have to waste time grinding on their alts.
