Breakfast Topic: What's your least favorite WoW chore?

Some players abhor farming rep. Others dislike the farming professions, and still others would rather wear whatever good-enough item comes their way than devote hours, days and weeks farming gear, mounts or other items. Then there are the players who dislike farming on an actual farm. So OK, farming -- definitely one of those things that turns certain players right off.

But farming isn't anywhere near the top of the list of WoW chores I'm not fond of. Atop my list lurks a chore I dread so deeply that I will sometimes abandon (temporarily or even permanently) a character over it: updating a character after a major gameplay patch. Nothing turns me off more than having to tinker under the hood of a character I've long since come to happy terms with. Talent resets are my nemesis. The two or three characters I play the most? Sure, trying out the new stuff is kinda fun. But all those little guys who see only occasional play, the guys whose level I couldn't verify when I'm away from the keyboard and whose keybinds I forget after a day or three away? Setting them up again represents a major investment of time -- one I confess I'm not always willing to make.

What's your least favorite WoW chore? Do you suffer through it to gain certain benefits, or have you sworn off ever performing that dreadful task again?

Breakfast Topic: Daily chores

Some people really seem to enjoy repping up with various factions. I am not one of them. I've known people who complete the maximum amount of daily quests on multiple characters. It's fantastic that Blizzard has opened up opportunities for relatively easy gold and reputation, but I wish there was a little more variety in the experience.

Prior to Patch 2.4, when the limit was ten, I don't think that I ever completed more than four or five dailies per day. Now that we've been bombarded with Quel'Danas dailies and the limit is twenty-five, I do up to eight on rare occasions. I almost always complete the daily battleground quest, but that's about it most days. I know that they're an excellent source of gold, but they feel like such a chore to me. I find daily questing to be almost as much fun as washing dishes and doing laundry. If it means I never get epic flying mounts on my characters, so be it.

How many dailies do you do and what keeps you motivated to do them?
