Have they hotfixed it yet? Pipe is being nerfed to 100 rep for the gear factions and 1000 to the rest.

It is pretty annoying. Tillers goes faster because there are so many rep sources, but Klaxxi is slooow. There are things Blizz could have made it easier with - Guo-Lai Cache Keys open chests with Golden Lotus rep tokens inside, but they're phased out below Revered; and Dread Amber Shards (250 rep for 20) would be great if the drop rate wasn't so low as to be unfarmable.

Oh, and I found an extra Klaxxi daily the other day that I didn't know about, but I think it requires two people. In the Gurthani ruins area (with the spiders), there's a place with a green and a red rune on the ground - you /lie on green and /kneel on red to summon a mob that drops a quest item. Pretty sure it was daily, it rewarded valor.

They reverted that change and slapped a 7 day cooldown on the pipe instead.

Yes, it requires two people to summon the dude to kill. I haven't exactly figured out what causes it to be available though. I think it may be a time of day/night.

Our server is dead :(

At least if you believe the ranting of some of the self proclaimed "hardcore raiding guilds" that find the +/-500 geared/experienced players on horde side not to meet their standards, because they either only have normal/LFR experience or are not willing/able to raid 4-5 nights a week for 4-5 hours...

Hey, Blizzard decided along time ago that US servers appearently need all the support they can get in order to secure World Firsts, even if it includes postponing non-US patches/fixes/updates.

For raids, I get it. But for dungeons? I don't think I've ever looked up a dungeon strat before going in. Not like it matters anyway - shit's too easy.

I've already started feeling burned out on dailies, so started not doing them all every day...

I've barely got time to get home from work and do my dailies before the daily reset, never mind running a dungeon. I really do love rep grinds, but this is insane.

I'm just a bit OCD for those things :-p

Hell I just read the entire Journal for MoP dungeons while our mailboxes are compacting (9Go mailbox ahoy \o/)
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Is that why I opened the cache yesterday and found nothing inside?.. that blows.

Klaxxi to honored is fast enough, unless you are a BS not seeing what the real rush is. I got Klaxxi to honored the first day, and I still didn't finish the zone (damn toungeless Mushan)>

Not knowing who is going to be logging back in after MOP's drop and not having a target for when we wanted to start raiding this tier (we're a pretty casual bunch, so I didn't expect to be raiding week 1 or even 2 - but we haven't even done guild 5-mans yet).

I am too - it's what makes new dungeons so annoying at first for me: 1) I want to know the basics before going in and 2) I have given up LFD pugging (and we'll see if I ever tank an LFR run). So by the time I can get people together, I've either got to convince them to do a specific dungeon (no RDF loot), try to memorize all of the basic strats for all the available dungeons or look it up when we zone in and make people wait.

that statement is a joke, and we like it cause while it's not true at all, us guilds still don't manage.
my frustration this time is (just like before) blizzards inability to be consistant.
I know people give us crap for the lfr deal, but having killed bosses multiple times the first week, that's ok? without giving the others the same opportunity.

They're just trying to add some realism. You know, with how real life is all grindy and unfair - so that when you come home from work/school and the media stops peppering you with the grim injustices of the world, you can continue your mortal toils in-game! Next patch will include a voting system where the players vote on who gets the world firsts.

Yeah, Honored is fast - you get it from finishing the zone. Revered is not. BS gets nothing special above Honored, so dunno what you mean there, but I'm still after unlocknig the valor legs and belts, and the scorpion mount...
