Well, it turns out that if WoW lead developer Jeff "Tigole" Kaplan had his way, attunement would be much less of a pain. He dropped the following information in a thread on "Attunement and Alts" in the general forums today:
- They would like to make it so getting a Karazhan key or a heroic key gave all your other max-level alts access as well.
- They're looking into guild and raid attunements, but "no promises."
- They're interested in doing server events to open up content, like the AQ war but, Tigole says, with more fun dailies and fewer boring collection grinds.
