I've faithfully done my dailies for several weeks now. I think Fuu and I can count the days we've missed on one hand. We've been good little worker bees. Personally, I rather enjoy dailies and working toward something. I'm sure I'll wear them out eventually, but I really don't mind how Blizz has presented this "grind." I actually enjoy it a lot more than TB. It always bugged me in TB that you get to the end goal, "exalted," but then you still have to grind a bunch of tokens to buy anything. I appreciate this path a bit better, where you grind all your tokens on your way up the ladder, and then open a world of purchasable items for simple gold. It feels more rewarding, and that counts for something.
Anyway, I've only opened the Moonwell so far. There was some discussion in comments here last week about the Moonwell items. I was a bit confused, as people alternated between mentioning the trinket and off hand. I want to clarify: after filling the Moonwell, the new vendor will offer you items that include both a trinket AND an off hand. One is the Moonwell Chalice trinket and the other is the Globe of Moonlight off hand.
This is all well and good, but the problem for me is that Mr. Robot indicates that my current gear selections - including the Soul Casket, Stump of Time, and Book of Binding Will - are better. Thus, I did not buy anything (well, I did grab a Crimson Lasher and a Mushroom Chair). I probably should have checked this out more beforehand, but oh well. I'm don't think any of the other vendors hold any other possible upgrades for me. Our resident Blacksmith is taking care of patterns... I'm in the queue. So I guess it's not a loss or anything.
I did get to do the locket quest, which I give two thumbs up. Good stuff. If you get the glitch (like I did) where it says you don't meet the requirements for the quest when talking to that Druid dude, just click through his little spiel about Dire Maul and then you should be able pick up the quest. The exclamation point doesn't always show up, but it was there for me.
Now, just a few more faithful days and I think I'll open the Armorer next, see what he has...
