I agree re: Legion. Having chosen to level a toon through the expansion, it feels a lot more hollow than it did on live. Lack of artifact systems had a bigger impact on my enjoyment of it than I thought it would.
Imagine people who actually want to experience Legion. Thanks to that entire artefact-removal, the entire expansion is unviable to play in retail...-Legit need to find a private server to play a certain expansion now.

Party sync basically fixes phasing issues
I've had fun leveling in Legion since chromie time. Mostly due to the varied artifact weapon quests and order hall campaigns. That's been the main draw, waiting to see each order hall and weapon quest once per class has made it my default expac. Then making some alts in other expansions if I already have one that did that order hall.It's also been nice being able to switch around which Legion zones to do although the 3rd or 4th time playing through any one of them in a month has gotten a bit repetitive. But it's also pretty easy to get artifact weapons to ilvl 70 at L50 (3x +16 relics which is the WQ default) which actually overtakes the ilvl 58 weapons I had on characters that hit L50 in BfA. (Although the Nathanos drops totally outmatch either of those while we can get them.)Legion's starter scenario through the broken shore is fairly quick but gives very little XP (basically == 2-3 quests worth). Compared to WoD's which is longer but since it's phased questing instead of a scenario, with a ton of quick quests back to back, I got 4 levels playing through it even starting at L30.
I don't want to diminish the great work of the team, but they launched from high up the cliff, if you know what I mean.Throwin' some serious shade.lol
I'm leveling through Legion and absolutely love it. It has to be the best expansion because you can unlock so much cosmetics for your class. Also, the pacing is going surprisingly well as I have been able to get through a couple of zones and only level 39. That's pretty high, but I also spammed dungeons for at least 10 or so levels. So if I just stuck to the story, I have no doubt I would be able to get to Surumar before reaching max level.Regarding Ghost Crawlers pov, not sure I agree. I leveled quite a few characters during legion and always thought the stories were great. In fact, Surumar and the whole Nightfallen/withered story line is my personal favorite in the entire game.But you know the saying, "opinions are like butt holes ... we all have them".Also, just curious ... why do the people at WoWhead care about Ghostcrawler anyway? At this point, he's nothing more than a guy now that plays the game like a casual, just like a lot of other people. Not sure his opinion is any more valid or relevant than your average forum goer.
You missed a comma in the title.
I like how people complain about the removal of Artifacts from legion making it a hallow Expansion.... When its the same for BFa, you dont even earn the necklace, till level 50
