BfA just feels like it's missing something...

General Discussion
Worst xpac in wow history.
it feels pretty much like beta for game play and awesome for artwork.

They just had to mess with way too many class and spec stuff like GCD just to say they did something. No new talent rows, still feels like a beta.
It just is not nearly as fun as Legion. Lots of it has to do with class changes and content changes (Mythic+ for example) that were probably not good to release if you are going to ignore class feedback.

There is then content like Island Expeditions. Lets be honest, a lot of people thought they going to be boring from the start, I was going to like them just for collecting. Problem is, the reward structure was VERY POORLY communicated where not until several weeks into the expansion people knew what to do to get rewards. There is then the fact that doubloons have been useless until 8.1. I do not even do I.E.s because the hassle early and misinformation made me hate them.

Professions are always a big one. Guess what I have in my inventory? Nearly 900 Sanguicells because I raid every difficulty. Cause who doesnt need them? Me, because Mythic/Heroic drop a lot of them and after you are stacked in gear you do not need crafted !@#$. Guess who they do not drop for? The people doing LFR/Normal because you get 1 to zero Sanguicell per boss.

There are just a host of problems that probably could have been fixed (and this is the hilarious part) but doing NOTHING in the first place or by just telling a CM how some content works so they can provide a clear explanation.
it is like all of my previous reliable dopamine moments are being stripped away in favor of a subscription based casino where I can't count on anything

feels like wasting my time for nothing

I can't put my finger on it really.


subs...it's missing a lot of subs
It's missing depth.

Everything is contrived and superficial.

I can't put my finger on it really. I'm not sure exactly what it is but so far this expansion just feels a bit pointless or something. I'm not talking about endgame stuff or content gates or whatever...just the game in general.

This is not my only toon over 110 btw.

Not that I'm not enjoying it but just not like I have in the past.

Anyone else?


The entire game has been stripped of 'meaningful' content. And for me that is probably the biggest killer.

Nothing matters. Dungeon achievements? Who cares, you get another mount, and there is no point putting effort in today when you can just solo all the requirements next expac. Special loot from mythic raiding? Nah, all the same stuff drops from normal and heroic, just with different stats. Old pvp sets? Np, wait a season or so and buy them with tokens. Nothing matters in the game today. And at least for me, if I'm in a mmo working on things, I want the result to last and be worth the time expended. I stayed around for a long time hoping this would change and it just keeps getting worse. So I cancelled my sub a few weeks ago and just need to wait on my time to run out. I'll go find a game that doesn't depreciate the efforts of its players like Wow does now.

And fun. Missing that since day one.

There’s no character progression anymore, and hasn’t been since level 100.


Agreed. This is what's missing for me.
Meaningful engaging content.

Islands are a 10m slaughter for cosmetics

Warfronts dont happen nearly enough to consider them a good source for anything

WQs are quickly outscaled and worthless

The new systems arent good enough to keep me logging in outside of raiding.
For me, I think, it is two things. One is a broken sense of progression and reward in content that is not high level and max level. The other is broken social aspects of the game. Both of these problems are the result of many decisions by Blizzard, not just one, and will be hard to fix.

The word is quality. It is missing quality .

it just feels pointless because you know deep down that at the end of BfA, your character will be fundamentally no more powerful than it is right now.

Ok clear some real content before talking... i hope
No real raiding, pvp or M+.
Nothing to do.... you did nothing.

It's missing fun.
Same here, I have played WoW for so long but now more than ever I feel a complete disconnect from the game, I log in once a week and almost instantly log off.

It isn't rewarding in the least. They took Legion content and just recycled way too much of it.
