i think when you start giving a review to a mmo and first thing you say it has stunning graphics, awesome ost is not the best thingwe want gameplay, at least i do, so far we have a terrible zone called the maw, people have to do daily, where you constantly dazed, stunned, feared, the zone starting to be empty tbh on draenor no one doing the elite/rares anymorewe have the never ending and not rewarding, boring torghast, we are forced to do on alts to craft legendarythe raids have become anima farming zone out of 12 bosses you probably wont get loot, i have 7 huntsman kills on mythic and i dont have the weapon this includes my raiding team who could of traded it and the vault gearing well maybe its not a bad time to start wow for casuals but then again they would like to farm old content and due to terrible scaling they cant, so im not sure for whom is shadowlands
As someone who came back to WoW recently, I'm going to disagree with a lot of the answers here and say yes.The fact that I can level alts as quickly as I can now is a huge draw for me, as my indecision over which class I really wanted to focus on has been a lot easier to remedy by trying all the class/race combinations I want. Even if it might take me longer, I feel like I might actually be able to get into things like M+ or PvP content that I hadn't touched on much before.
imo WoW is best when it has multiple small stories crammed together and no single objective or goal, like in Classic or TBC. The player being an adventurer in a large world with no major specific agenda other than to get loot, kill bad guys and explore the world. That being said I really enjoyed the main plot in Mists, I think Blizzard really made the most of that expansion despite everyone's thoughts at the times, however starting from Legion I definitely felt very disconnected from what's going on, it just started becoming too much, the systems too, but that's another thing. All in all, Blizzard shouldn't've invested so much in to the plot that no one cares about in the last few expansions and just made more dungeons, more raids and bigger worlds. Shadowlands definitely starts to feel oddly lacking.
Not until they fix loot, I mean nothing drops at all, why play then?
I have to heavily disagree with a large portion of the comments sectionShadowlands has been one of the greatest expansions so far, and I had a ton of fun playing through it. The zones were pretty, there was a huge emphasis on exploration, there were a bunch of interesting sidequests like the library tower in Maldraxxus, the dungeons are all really interesting, torghast is tons of fun, the covenant campaigns are fun and interesting, and soulbinds/conduits provide more customization than ever before.In addition, the new players experience is great now with the leveling revamp and exiles reach, so one could argue getting into the game, which was the question posed, is better than ever before.I honesty don't know what you all expect out of an expansion tbh. Yes, the end-game content isn't super built up, but thats also because we haven't had a single patch yet. The experience you paid $60 for is the expansion itself - leveling from 50-60, and then whatever enjoyement you were able to get out of the endgame before the next content update.Imagine playing classic, power-leveling to 60 within a couple weeks, and then complaining there's nothing to do before they even come out with Maurodon. That's what some of you sound like right now.Game development takes a lot of hard work and time, so if youre burned out, go play something else for a bit while you wait for another content update.

I wasn't subbed for launch. Good move on my part. I only subbed in December for Feast presents. I'm not currently subbed, and the double-whammy of having chance at Vol'dun's World Boss mount or Love is In the Air mount was not enough to get me to resub. So no, I for one do not find it a good time to be subscribed.
Woof! There's enough salt in here to cure some jerky. There's a ton of collectables in this expansion that are a step beyond what we've seen before. A couple of notables are the myriad of back attachments in place of cloaks, cute pets with adorable in-world effects (looking specifically at Jiggles the Necrolord pet here), toys like the acrobatic stewards, and player-chosen themed mogs.In addition, this is the first expansion where 2 -s can be played wildly different (through covenant/soulbind/conduit/talent choices). Lots of player agency here if your goal is to have fun.If your goal is to follow a cookie-cutter build to run specific tasks on a specific schedule, then maybe an RPG isn't a good fit for you anymore.
proabbly a big no. is it a good time to leave? most likely. unless you're meta anyways. though if you'r emeta it might already be past time to take a break for the tier anyways sooooo... up in the airi know after how they've botched and handled balancing since their pushed holiday launch.... in the past i would always recommend blizzard to friends, but no more, not for now at least :(
Stay away till they make the game better!
lmao ironic, I I subbed like 3-4 weeks ago. I can’t even get myself to log in.
Shadowlands is exactly what I expected from Blizzard with the Corona situation pushing their team to work from home.Shadowlands leveling and ''casual'' content is all great and fun we have 4 Covenants with their own storylines, we have plenty of class changes to explore the classes and nice set of off quests, PVE and PVP content to do weekly.The ''suffering'' we feel right now is the tuning for classes and perhaps more effort put into the end content of both PVE and PVP.Good to return to Shadowlands? Yes.Is it perfect? Sadly not but it is enough to keep yourself satisfied and Blizzard seem to have heard the communities feedback (Valor Points) and going to update the issues with 0.5 and 1.0 patches to come.
