    Maybe it's good now.

    Because it is bad, and the other aren't. Mumble all the way.

    First opinion from 2010 without further testing, or testing every so often to see if it's fixed?

    It was more like 2007, it's been around a while. And i can't say i have used it recently but can't remember seeing anything in any patch notes about it being updated.

    Works properly in Planetside 2 and any Source based game (TF2, etc), but those the only ones I can think of.

    voice chat doesnt work if your using the 64 bit client anyway, I always preferred an external comms program, like vent/mumble myself.

    Up to 48 daily quests now to gain rep with all factions. Really does bug me as I am a bit of a completionist but we are talking about 2+ hours of daily quests *sigh*. Has completely put me off leveling any alts too.

    Just hit 90 on Sunday, started the halfhill dailies, but I probably won't start any of the others until I've done their quest zones. Just finishing off Dread Wastes at the minute. There's a LOT of blues on my map now though o.o

    You don't have to do all the dailies every day! What is it the Pandaren keep saying as you quest through the zones? "Slow down".

    Ah, but lets look at Vincent's 48 dailies.. Now you get 5 Valor and 20G for most of them, if not all. So lets say that's 240 valor and 960G a day just from 2 hours of dailies.. That sounds worth it to me!

    I've got my exploration, lore hunting, professions and quests to do yet too.. plenty to keep me busy!

    Well if you do them every day after 2 months you will still be doing dailies, seems too long

    Yes but there's a cap on valor per week of 1k so you'll hit your valor cap before you run out of week days to do dailies in. Thats also discounting the fact that even if you have the valor to buy stuff you wont rep up fast enough to unlock the items for purchase.

    As for gold, I play the auction house if it took me as long on the AH to get 1k gold as it does to do those dailies I wouldn't waste my time on it. There's far quicker and easier ways to make more gold on the AH in two hours (easy one if you have a miner/alchemist, farm 60 ghost iron bars and transmute them up to a living steel bar. Easy gold, even more gold can be made if you combine with another professsion).

    Oh yeah, I know about the caps and such, I just really don't mind doing dailies and that just seems like an even better reason to do them in my eyes

    As for playing the AH, I've got mining and JC atm, but they're sitting around the 350 mark, I haven't levelled them since Outlands as I needed to level quickly and haven't yet found the time (server moved a lower level just before the expansion hit).
    Currently playing the Darkmoon Faire items on the AH, buying them at around 50g when people have bombed it all, then distributing 1 each to my alts for their tickets, and selling the rest when the Faire starts each month, made around 10k doing it so far. Used to make my money from the 365 ilevel weapons at the start of Firelands, buy mats for 4k, sell for 14k.

    I make 10k a day from Engineering pets, Enchants, Blacksmithing PvP/PvE Blues and Inscription Glyphs. Leatherworking and Tailoring are still work in progress for me.
