I've been hearing about changes coming to dailies. They are upping the number of dailies to 35 per day but lowering the gold made from them.
I am not exactly sure what they are going for here. Maybe 1% of the WoW population does all 25 dailies each day. So they are making a change that effects such a small percentage of the game base that it is going to hurt the people that only do a few dailies for the gold.
Why extend the number of dailies you can do when no one is doing them anyway?
Anyone that does dailies to make money is doing it wrong. Sure, dailies are a nice way to make a little gold but it should never be your sole way of making gold. You can go herb, mine, buy and sell, etc, and make more in 10 minutes then you would doing all 25 dailies. Dailies, while they work for people that do not know any better are not a way to make gold.
So being they are not a way to make gold, and no one is doing all 25 every day anyway, why make the chance that is not needed? You are hurting the people that actually need the gold by lowering the gold amount that dailies give. They are not going to do more because they can do 35, they where not doing 25 to begin with.
Another swing and a miss on Blizzards part. How can anyone be so out of touch with it's player base?
If they are attempting to get people to do more dailies then lowering the gold is not going to help. They where not doing it before, they are not going to do it now being they are getting less from it. That makes no sense at all.
If they want people to do more dailies they should try to add something to make doing the dailies worth it. There are better ways to make gold, so lowering gold is making it worse. Do something like the dailies at the Argent Tournament and TB. For me, and many others, those are the only dailies worth doing being there is something worth working for.
Add more little bonus things for dailies instead of just gold and you will get people to do them. Make the Cataclysm dailies give faction tokens and then the head and shoulder enchants would cost 30 of each to get. This would mean they would be worth doing. You would want to keep a stock of them so if you update your gear you can get the top enchant instantly and not need to work a few days to get them.
Now that is what Blizzard would have done if they where thinking and trying to get people to do more of them. Not up count and lower gold. That helps no one.
