I don't see how this wouldn't be fair to people that only like to play one character.

exactly if they only play 1 character they already have account wide achievements what do they care? That comment makes no sense to me.

The comment you are referring to was referring to account wide professions/reputations - something that would heavily favor a player who plays multiple characters (and can therefore have access to all professions) over someone who plays a single character (and will therefore only have two).It wasn't in regards to achievements, from what I understand.

That bit was in regard to account-wide professions.

Imagine if you have someone with 5 level 85s looking to get exalted with Baradin's Wardens. That person would be able to do all of the dailies 5 times, and thus get 5 times the rep that someone with only one character at 85 would get.

@Jebediah54And put in 5 times the work.The easiest fix to this is to say that reputation status (Friendly, Honoured, etc) is account-wide, whereas the degree within each status (1200/21000) is character based.Any change to a character's reputation status will automatically change all other characters' reputation status with that faction (for better or worse, so people can't cheat themselves into 'The Insane' title).

@DboyUnless I'm misunderstanding Jebediah's scenario, you'd be getting 5x rep gains per character. So, you'd actually be getting 25x rep gains for 5x the work.

@Dboy-But that strikes to the heart of the issue the Blue Poster was actually addressing, a system that favors those with multiple alts. I have one 85, so if there are 5 TB dailies that each give me 200 rep (just throwing out numbers), the maximum rep I can possibly achieve in one day is 1000 (tabards aside). With someone with 3 85s (in your system), they could gain 3000 rep, putting themselves far ahead of me for no other reason then they had some alts. He can get to exalted 3 times as quickly as me, and on three different characters at once? How is that fair?The fact that there is a set number of dailies is there to prevent exactly the above. Tabards aside, the cap on daily quests and on faction-specific quests are there to ensure that those without many hours to play per day can actually compete with those who have a lot of time to burn. That, and you'd have to adjust your reputation numbers, because someone getting 3000 rep per day (assuming they start at honored, tabards aside) can make it to exalted (with three characters, no less) in 11 days, whereas it would take the guy with 1 85 over a month.

@JackI think your maths is a little out there, mate. 1 character * 5 dailies = approx 1250 rep; 3 characters * 5 dailies each (15) = approx 3750 repTherefore each character gives one additional set of daily reputation, as N-train has stated.@N-trainI understand the premise here, but I don't think you read/understood my solution regarding reputation status changes vs reputation degree/fraction changes. Have a look through it again and tell me what you think :)

so make the dailies account wide as well therefor you can only do the dailies once a day per account of coarse this is ONLY if they have account based reps. But if someone is willing to put in more work than you and level up multiple characters and do the dailies multiple times how is it cheating you any? You can either do the same or go at a slower pace no harm no foul.I cant do heroics but I can do the daily regular and Im good with having a shot albeit at a slower pace at the same gear as people who can get items in 1 day, they put in more time they deserve faster rewards

youre all completely missing the obvious solution. make all rep dailies account wide.as in, you can only do the daily once per day per account.there, no double rep problems anymore.wow, that was hard.

It seems as though my post might have been misunderstood. What I was trying to say was that a person that has 5 characters that share rep, they'd be able to get all 5 characters to exalted much faster than someone that just runs those dailies once per day, and thus get all the epics from them in 1/5 of the days. I don't mean that someone that puts in more work shouldn't get rewarded for it, I'm just saying that it wouldn't be right for Blizz to make it seem like you have to have multiple 85s to be competitive at progression (although, at this point, there's been ample time to get to exalted with Baradin's Wardens).However, as Tim said, they could fix that advantage with account-wide dailies, but at that point they'd be cutting off a significant portion of income for the player base.

@gewaltAnd you are not seeing the obvious problem to your obvious solution: Some dailies, TB included, award more than just rep. Would you miss out on tokens to gear up your alts? What about money?wow that was cleverMoving on:DBoy's got it I think.
