Not that I'm anywhere near it, in fact today was the first time I hit 200 daily rep without a bounty pushing me over, and it got me wondering: for the Epic and Legendary badges, do 200+ days accomplished with non-limited reputation points (accepted answers, bounties, etc.) count toward these, if you wouldn't have broken 200 daily rep without them?

If so, should their descriptions be changed?

Hitting the upvote rep cap is not necessary for a given day to count towards those badges, you simply have to earn >=200 rep by any means. Taken from MSO's "List of all badges with full descriptions":


The description of the Legendary badge notes the same rep requirements. Given this, the description is (IMHO) accurate.
