One thing that Blizz has said is that they don't like "Double-Dipping", which is throwing a tabard on, earning rep rewards through doing dungeons, earning drops off of bosses through dungeons, and then buying JP/VP gear with JP/VP you got by doing dungeons.

Therefore, Dungeons = The Only Thing You Do.

Blizz WANTS us to do Dailies AND Dungeons. They want us to do multiple different things to gear up our characters. You can gear up by just dailies, easily. You can gear up by doing JUST dungeons.... if it weren't for LFR's lame looting system, that is.

Hence why I stress that LFR loot is one of the huge problems with this model. It is the thing that prevents people from gearing up solely from dungeons.

What Blizz WANTED was for the people who do dungeons AND dailies to reap extra rewards from their efforts in both aspects of endgame WoW. They wanted you to be able to gear up from solely dailies and solely dungeons to give people a choice.

However.... LFR loot kills this whole model. IF LFR geared you better, then their goal would be met.

What you described is triple dipping. Simple fix: take away VP from dailies and give them their own non-VP/JP based rewards. Let us spend our JP/VP without doing dailies. No tabards. There. Multiple ways of gearing up.

BTW is the LFR loot problem the same one where people want to see what they don't win? Or is it just that, unlike in a guild run where you're increasingly likely to get a drop (even if Bobby gets the sword this week, I'll get it next week), you could potentially run forever and never win anything? IMO LFR was never intended to replace normal mode raids. We need to get back to the glory days of wrathbabyism with 4 difficulty levels. It worked really well and was reflected in its popularity. Go back to that system and let LFR augment that. 10 man normals could be easy enough to pug and even the most casual of guilds could complete it. Would create less LFR loot drama.

That is a separate issue though.
