Thinking of coming back to the game...

...but I am concerned about the lore.

How well/linear is the lore now from 1-90? I will be playing at an ultra casual speed just because I don't have a lot of time to play as it is, and I just want to savor the story line along the way.

Thanks for any input.

um, well it's not linear at all anymore:

1-60: OMG deathwing and the enemy faction is attacking! What was thrall thinking making Garrosh the leader of the horde?
58-70: OMG Illidan and the burning crusade army, hey there's uncorrupted orcs here but their tribal leader Garrosh is a whiny brat.
68-80 Now that Illidan is dealt with, time to go back and finish off the Lich King. Oh look, Garrosh is a general, and while no longer whiny now he's just rude and arrogant.
80-85: Now that the Lich King is dead, lets get back to killing each other, wait OMG Deathwing!
85-90: Deathwing is dead, hello Pandaren.

Haha, okay...so the storyline is garbage now is what you're telling me :)

Perhaps nostalgia is winning the battle of bringing me back to this game........

Specific zones for Vanilla areas can be too linear at times. I'd recommend creating a trial and playing some of the racial beginning storylines to see if you want to invest in playing again.

No, that's not what she's telling you. You asked for a general overview of multiple expansions of content and that's what she gave you, with a humorous twist. Trying to summarize an entire expansion (or even a content patch) in a nutshell is very difficult.

If you want to come back, try out a trial or use the Scroll of Resurrection program if you're eligible for it. It's your account, so it's entirely up to you.

The story is fine. You just have to take the story of each expansion on it's own. So instead of 1-90, you have to think of one 1-60 as one story, 60-70 as another, 70-80, 80-85, and then 85-90. Or 1-60 and then 60-90.

Its a bit weird how when you make a dk, you go through the story of how you leave the lich king and rejoin the alliance or horde. Then you go to outland!?!?! Woulda made sense to have dks start and 65 not 55. Although then it wouldn't have been fair at the time of LK launch due to people who were 70 deserving a headstart over new dks
