Mists of Pandaria: Ghostcrawler confirms no tabards for dungeon reputation

Mists of Pandaria No reputation tabards for dungeons
Lead Systems Designer Greg “Ghostcrawler” Street has been very busy over the past 24 hours, answering a variety of queries on the US message boards. One in particular caught my eye, where he explains the decision behind the changed system of reputation gain in Mists.

To cut a long thread short, there had been some discussion on the fact that in the beta, there is currently no way to gain reputation with the factions that supply valor point gear, apart from doing daily quests. The factions do sell tabards, but these are purely cosmetic and award no reputation gain from doing dungeons or raids or the like. So the only way available to increase your reputation with the four factions is via completing their quest lines and daily quests.

The four factions in question are The August Celestials, The Klaxxi, Shado-Pan and Golden Lotus. All these factions offer different gear slots, recipes, patterns and mounts, with some overlap — and of course this is beta, so there’s likely to be more gear added in. At the moment, this is the only gear available in exchange for valor points.

Understandably, this has caused some negative reaction among players who don’t really care for questing and dailies and prefer to do enough to buy a tabard and run dungeons to gain reputation. Those players asked Ghostcrawler why Blizzard is “forcing” them to do daily quests by removing reputation tabards from the game. See his response after the break.
