We’re deploying a hotfix late tonight that will reduce the number of Lesser Charms of Good Fortune required to purchase 3 Mogu Runes of Fate from 90 down to 50. Meaning when you log in Wednesday and purchase your 3 Mogu Runes of Fate, which are used for 5.2 raid boss bonus rolls, it will only cost you 50 Lesser Charms.

We recommend waiting until after the scheduled Wednesday maintenance to ensure this change has gone through before purchasing your Runes.

I loathe dailies, however not farming Mogu Charms will significantly hinder your gearing in the early portion of a tier.

I'm not looking for the blue post, but they have stated then do not plan to make anything buy-able with Lesser charms. The way they see it, if you have so many then you could take a break from doing dailies.
I had 1k+ From dailies like BeanX, I then didn't do dailies for like 11 weeks? I now have like 30 Lessers and have been trying to fit in a few planned dailies to get charms so I can still get the Mogu 3 each week.

50 from 99 is nice. You only have to do 7 dailies a day, and then an 8th on one day to hit that.

I have over 2000 of the dang things so this change means nothing to me. Sure, my alts don't have a ton of lessers yet but then again, they aren't up to raiding ToT yet either so they are sitting on 9 Mogu runes each just waiting until they can actually use them. The tough part right now is getting a new 90 some of the old greater runes to use in MV and HoF since the best sources of the greater runes now are on Thunder Isle where an undergeared alt can get into trouble very easily. :/

This change is great for newcomers and for people who just don't do dailies at all but for someone like me who uses dailies to generate valor points, it just won't make any real difference.

I wish I could just give all mine to you guys. They are completely useless to me and I have way more than I could ever turn in given you can only do it once a week. If they are going to be handing these out for everything, I wish they'd make them useful in some way to everyone, not just people who are raiding right now.

Sad to read that. It could be something small like the things you spend excess honor on (Motes of Harmony come to my mind) or something similar that would not make it mandatory to have them. Just having them sit there seems a bit like a waste.
I would take a break from dailies but some of them I won't skip until I have all the associated achievements. The moment that is done I will stop doing them. And gladly so. Smiley: lol

Well that's the stupidest thing I ever heard, blue. What if I like doing dailies? What if I'm giving you $15 a month just to do dailies because I love them so much? You also give them out for pet battles. Should I "take a break" from those too, even if they're what I want to spend my game time on?

So let's see, you're flooding me with this crap. And you think the best option is, I should stop doing the activity for which you're throwing the crap. Instead of, oh I don't know, "rewarding" me with an actual reward, instead of crap?

I suggested on the o-boards that they let me deposit them in my guild bank, and everyone immediately called me dumb, which I suppose may be true. But I really would like to do something with them, or give them to someone who can.


(Edit: I do not love dailies. But I'm sure somebody does.)

I'd be down with Lessers being back in my bags and being Account Bound. Heck I would LOVE if Motes of Harmony were account bound. I have other crafting alts that could get a use out of the motes, but I do not plan to level them to farm motes :3

I have guildies who hate questing and doing dailies. They were very mad at having to do dailies to get lessers. Come to think of it I think one still refuses to do dailies and can never do extra rolls (and sadly we have bad drops and he has hardly any upgrades out of raids). So as much as some would like to use them for stuff, there are still people who don't gain them and that would give them a disadvantage (because they to pay $15, and don't want to me told how to play). Can't please everyone :p

Mount up, run around and either: Attack a Rare and/or look for a Golden chest. You are after the purple Key. Do the solo instance and basically just focus on the 1st room, opening ALL the chest you can. By the time you run out of time, you should be 20cap if not 10+
I was doing the above on my DK who hit 90 and only had lv90 PvP Gear. I could then run LFRs and drop extra rolls on every boss.

This, I just leveled my mage to 90 (5th 90) and was messing around over the last weekend. Did some dailies etc and did the Treasure Trove scenario. Pretty much I shot up to like 476 ish Ilvl, in a few days. Theres almost always a treasure chest with a key in it down on the docks by the boat

Since no one wanted to buy 522 epics (or any gear) with the charms no one would be at a disadvantage. But to be able to spend 100 of them and get a stack of ore/cloth/other crafting material would remove the feeling of wasted effort 1k+ unused charms can give when looking at the currency tab.

It would be nice if there was even some kind of currency conversion on them.

I am accumulating them and have absolutely zero opportunity to use them ever.

Mind you I seem to accumulate a lot of things that I never have any use for Smiley: smile

I don't see why they replaced Lesser->Elder with Lesser->Mogu in the first place instead of adding a choice. It would help get over the ilvl hump for the newer LFR - you can't spend charms/runes if you don't qualify for the Raid Finder yet...

See 4 posts up. It is not hard at all to get Elder Charms. Heck my main (monk) has 20 with 2 chests in his bags that each have one ready to be added to the currency pool.
Now I'd be all on board for Blizz to add things for Elder Charms to be spent on at some high price (Like 5 for a Mote, heck even 10). I have no need to run the solo scenario for Elder Charms, the only reason I'd run it is for the Sunreaver pages for rep (to mail to my other because I am Exalted with all except the new Shado-pan group).
