I personally think the 33% XP nerf is ridiculous and should have waited until the next expansion.Cheers.
I might actually get around to leveling my alts and trying for a few LFR runs now. Something about this whole expansion kinda put me off doing anything but the minimum of daily stuff on my main.

I'm pretty happy with the reduction in required XP. I don't have a lot of time or interest in leveling my alts and once I get around to it this will make it easier. I did the full grind on at least one toon, reducing the amount for the rest is appropriate, imo.
General Revive Pet now has a cast time of 4 seconds, down from 6 seconds.Why not just make our pets a little tougher so we don't have to revive them so much? Ever since MoP was released I find my pets dying very quickly, and I've never had that problem before. They've gotten very squishy and it's very annoying - my pet is one of my best weapons. It doesn't seem to matter which pet it is or how much hp they have, they still don't stand up to anything in Pandaria very well. :-(
Honestly I can agree with both sides of this somewhat "debate" but IMO, now I actually might want to take the time to level my belf up to 90 instead of leaving her at 86 and going off to make another toon that I PROBABLY won't ever get to 90 because of the same reason, it takes FOREVER. I have ONE 90 and I had to work on the bizzy day and NIGHT. Jus' sayin', it probably could have waited, but then again now I can start to level the other important toons that have just been sitting around and gathering dust.On a side note, I agree with Fleurdelis, I'm having to heal my pet WAY too much. Usually I can keep up with it, but then that takes away from my DPS and then well, nothing productive is getting done. T___T
I'm just a little sad that I already leveled all my 85s to 90...
I welcome the XP reduction but perhaps they should do something similar to what they did with rep. Takes longer on first toon but goes quicker on alts. I loved the experience the first time through but by the third time it's mostly spent.
On the surface I say the experience nerf is a joke....BUT The biggest thing that keeps me from leveling my alts is the time it takes. The faster I can do it, the better!
Leveling alts is miserable. Rep grinding alts is miserable. Blizz is slowly but surely realizing that altoholics are subscribers too, and is giving them a little bit of an incentive to come back. It's probably too late, and, honestly, not enough has been done about the reputation issue (I maintain that rep should be account-wide, period). When is the estimated release date of this patch?
FYI there was the following interchange on Twitter:Pliers @pliers1 "Reduced the number of Lesser Charms of Good Fortune needed for the Mogu Runes of Fate weekly quest to 50, down from 90." BEST PATCH EVER.Rygarius @Rygarius @pliers1 Oops, forgot I left that in. We're bumping that up to a hotfix actually.
The 33% experience buff should only be if you already have a level 90 on your account, IMO. With that much of a buff people leveling their first toon to 90 will bypass entire questlines that are worth experiencing. For players grinding their alts up to level 90, yeah, it makes sense. But for everyone else they should have to have at least one toon to 90 before getting the exp buff. Of course come the next expansion the buff should apply to everyone because that's typically what blizzard does to speed up the leveling process.But whatever. I won't lose any sleep over it and I might actually dedicate more time to my alts now.
I like the XP nerf, even though I already have 9 90s. I still have 2 more 85s to level. I agree about the Hunter pets. I would love to see ALL rep be account wide. It is a waste of time to level rep on alts just to get 1 or 2 recipes. Make Spirits BOA! I have 15 setting on my DK that is only a gatherer, and wasted!
XP reduction is nice, as after 4 level 90's I'm rather tired of leveling more toons through Pandaria so this might be the little nudge I need to finish of some other alts.Requiring less Lesser Charms for the quest is also very nice, especially on top of the changes coming in 5.3 where they can drop from random mobs. No more mindless daily grinds just to get your Charms.Reducing the reputation level for the chest and belt from the Shado-Pan Assault seems strange, as that leaves no reward at Revered. In addition, I think the rewards are well spread as they are as see no need to change anything tbh.
Interesting, now they are swinging the pendulum back to better AoE on Mages... BUT pretty sure I read a previous patch note that said they were again doing a 10% nerf to Pyroblast damage... hurting single target a fair amount (that would make it 20% down since MoP landed).I'm really getting tired of them constantly trying to reinvent my class... I see NO reason to be constantly adding and detracting. It's frustrating and a disincentive to continuing on...I am SWIMMING in lesser charms, how about something ELSE to spend them on?
