So is it REALLY worth it?

Yesterday (or early this morning if you want to be truthful) I left off with the question. "Is grinding this new rep really WORTH all the effort?

And the answer is: At this point, we really don't know. I have yet to find a "Silver Covenant" Vendor so they don't seem to have anything specifically CONNECTED to them. Like the Frostborn and the Explorers League they seem to be there more for the Achievers who are after their Exalted Title.

Now on the other hand, if you were to ask the question, "Are doing the daily quests PROVIDED by this faction worth it?" Then the answer in my opinion would clearly be YES. For several reasons.

One would be the funds it will put into your pocket. If you have yet to obtain you epic flying skill this will be just one more way to help you on your way. The quests are fairly straight forward, result in little to no damage to your gear and if you are willing to take the time to avoid the time saving flight paths, inexpensive to complete.

Some of the quests are actually quite enjoyable. Riding the various mounts around and participating in the long awaited mounted combat is a great deal of fun once you get the hang of it. While designed for pve it can also be done as pvp which opens up even more options for players.

For the achievement mongers out there, yes there are indeed achievements tied to these daily quest. There are also some quest chains that I have refrained from discussing yet. One of the best ones is leads to the achievement called "Just a Flesh Wound" .

Of course another reason would be the rewards you can obtain with the quest currency. There are a large variety of items available, from mounts and vanity pets, weapons and armor.

Now some of you might be complaining. WHAT?!!? Another currency? Why?! Mike Schramm of WoW Insider gives a GREAT explanation of why all these currencies are SO necessary for progression. Go check it out at WoW Insider.

In conclusion everyone is in for a treat with this new quest hub.
