Well you’ve heard me yabber on about VP and how I hate getting them, but how I don’t really have much of a choice in the matter.
Capping VP every week isn’t reasonable for my life as a casual raider. But at the same time, we were very much struggling in the beginning without any T-12-equivalent gear. Clearly some out-of-raiding work is required.
There once was an ex-guildie who strenuously objected that I did not do dailies. To him, this omission meant that I was clearly not serious about raiding. To me, dailies were lower priority than heroics to get gear. He assumed I had time to do both – which of course was erroneous! Based on the time I had, I chose to focus on heroics.
Right now, I’m doing some valor point grinding (not capping), and no dailies, because the dailies gear is not that good for my class/spec. Maybe someone out there is incensed that I am not doing my dailies, or not capping vp. I, on the other hand, may be irrationally stabby at someone who, after all this time, has not obtained a piece or two of VP or faction/dailies gear.
I clearly think that the person who expects me to do dailies is being a little too hardcore. But am I being too hardcore in the (admittedly moderate) amount of work outside of raids that I expect? At what point does “not being hardcore” morph into “not making the effort?”
