Did Mists meet your expectations?
I'll begin trucking through the next zone when I get on again.
Grats to your find, Madican! And glad the game is turning out better for you, Thane. :)
I found BC exciting because it was the first expansion, it was new and thrilling to see the game expand. I found my self having issues sleeping at night because I wanted to expand my characters in RP and explore outland more, the land I've always wanted to explore since I was a pup playing WC3 TFT.
Wrath had the same effect, excitement from WC3, though to be honest I slept much better it did not have that first expansion flare that BC gave off.
Cata, I looked forward to it, so many changes some of which were radical compared to the games past. I loved changed and looked forward to it, but some thing about it.. I have to say it was the expansion I enjoyed the least. Which is sad, because I would say I was more excited for it then Wrath.
MoP comes along, I'm sorta jaded to me when I heard about it, it was just new content and a level grind. But I'm shocked it's become so much more. I've not enjoyed wow this much since BC came out, yes it's only been out two days but I'm having the time of my life again.
It was a -really- round about way to say it, but MoP exceeded my expectations.
The pet battle system has me addicted. I'm thoroughly enjoying the strategy involved and leveling my pets, even losing spectacularily to some of the trainers.
The music is good, the scenery is good, and the music is good.
Definitely exceeded my expectations, even if I find the rather cartoony appearing panda as surreal to the rest of WoW's races.
I KILLED DEATHWING, HELPING YOU WEED YOUR GARDEN IS NOT SOMETHING I DO.
WHY AM I GATHERING 8 ORANGES. THIS QUEST IS POINTLESS AND BORING.
While I didn't raid one bit in Cata I can see why that would be quite depressing. Still, quest text aside I do like the breaks and new mechanics to questing to split up the fed ex, gathering and kill quests.
So far it's just another expansion. The only thing that really stuck out at me is interacting with Pandarens and the new gear skins.
They're very expressive and modeled really well when my tauren's face is almost 10 years old and looks out of place in the new areas, next to the new race and wearing the new gear.
The classic races really need to be brought up to speed here.
Blizzard has gone out of their way to deliver a fun questing experience. Theres more VO, more cutscenes, more story, more humor, and more fun. They delivered the best scripted battle in their history.
So yeah, so far three of six zones down...Mists is hitting on all cylinders.
Hopefully tonight or tomorrow I'll be able to queue for a heroic and find out just how much more difficult healing really is.
I get to be an adorable Pandaren and the lore is just amazing.
Been reading every quest and I'm just really happy. Blizzard did a fantastic job.
And instead of calling in artillery fire, an army of fire magi, or higher powers of any sort, I started within it's enormous, cavernous stomach, and I.
This is good. Game has my attention still. Expectations still being met. I'll get back with you all when I try PvP.
I love the lore.
I love pandas.
I love the dungeons.
Leveling is annoying.
And the quests are silly in a fun way.
... although, I've only been leveling a Horde character.
And, yerp, you're on a warship, awaken demons of despair and darkness, and then you go to a monastery and collect oranges and sticks.
AND, oh, AND! You have to kill bunny rabbits.
Besides that, I liked going in to a village, seeing everyone all sad, and then putting masks on them to cheer them up.
And then prepare to battle as black and white fireballs spew out of their face and form entities of despair.
Also, Klaxxi are cool.
Shado-pan are boss.
I hate the Yaungol, they all must die.
The Grummles... they're like speech-impaired goblin-gnome-mountain sherpas who have a thing about luckydos and luckydon'ts.
Oh, they also have a thing about yaks. And GOOTS.
Leveling should be the best part about a game. If it is that bad from your point of view why choose to do so in this game?
1) Leveling should be and I said that in MOP it's one of it's good points. Most of the leveling in the game isn't. Allot of the quest is very redunant and well, boring.
2) I choose to do it because I have to. All the bread and butter of the game is when reaching max level. Like pvp battle grounds or arenas. In PvE you have raids.
My only recent complaint is pvp. It's absolutley pathetic. Of course this is base on class and to me, it's stupid. Caster's are way overpowered that melee can't even get close to killing one and if they do, their health is so low the next caster will get them. Otherwise from what I notice caster's can blow people up easy. Mages need a nerf HARD! Period. There is too much damm Cc that as a healer it's hard for me to get off a cast and most of my cast recently has been in dispelling.
Edit: My point of view on pvp.
