Hear* and Cataclysm wasn't that bad. I can't say I liked the new zones being all over the place, but I don't think anybody did and they just did what they could to makr the best of it. And the remade Azeroth had it's problems but it was something new for everyone.
I don't know anybody that enjoyed doing molten front dailies. It wasn't engaging or progressive story telling. We ran to the same spire over and over again. Ran through the same cave over and over again. Only reason to really do that was because they didn't come out with any other means to get entry-level gear. They could have introduced new dungeons, but nope, we got dailies. Do those dailies every day on all your 85s for about a month each. Those dailies sucked. As for the old world remake, they haven't touched on the fact that now that they're all centered around the cataclysm expansion, all those zones are going to be out of date when MoP and any other expansion comes out. They spent all that time and effort just to take away everything nostalgic about the old world. They introduced transmog("go do old stuff so we don't have to put out new stuff") so people can go back and do old content raids, but they wanted to change everything else about what made vanilla special. On top of that, the timeline is that much more stupid. Imagine being a DK, starting out serving the Lich King, then go to a retooled Deathwing-y Twilight Hammer leveling zone, THEN go to Outland to chase after Illidan, THHHHEENNNN go back to chasing after the Lich King, AAAANNNND THEEEENNNNNNNNN you go back to Deathwing crap. They don't realize how lost they really are.Oh and I can't wait for them to tell us how they gave us just the same 2 long retarded troll dungeons in 4.1 to do over and over. It wasn't even progressive content! They gave us 2 dungeons to grind out to get entry-level gear so we can go back and do the same 3 raids that this expansion started out with.Only reason 4.3-patch is as they call 'successful' is because we don't have to spend as much time in their game. No more dailies, no more rep grind, no more doing the same 2 long troll dungeons 7 times a week just to get valor-capped. Look at the number of lost subscribers over this expansion. They loosened up their grip on their players because they just couldn't compete with the newer games coming out. They need to learn from this experience and stop diluting themselves thinking that everyone loved what they did to the game.
Wow I am so glad to see people actually sticking up for the old content and hating on Blizz for things they have done wrong (Finally!) instead of the damn noobs coming in and just spreading around stupidity.. Blizz, long story short, you messed up. There were positives and negatives to things you did, unfortunately, the negative overruled.
I really loved the new lore of old places like Westfall, Redbridge and Ashvalley. Thoose places used to be pretty boring but now they have a strong questline (kinda of linear, but ok). The only thing that makes me sad is that Outland should also have some changes.
I think the reason why Cataclysm didnt do as good as they thought is because of the fact that all the areas were re-done, but for people who dont really play for the story, just kinda zoomed through the new stuff and got bored fairly quickly.
so cata was pretty cool new terrain to memebr and all new quest and some story changes too
So are other classes going to get a class-specific legendaries? It feels extremely unfair that rogues get their own legendary. Will there be a druid legendary? Warlock legendary? Mage legendary? Paladin legendary? You can see where I'm going with this.
