    Aside from the tanks destroying everything on DPS, which is quite stupid if you ask me, it has been good so far.

    I seem to recall similar things happening at the beginning of Cata? Altough on a smaller scale.
    As of now it's clearly a consequence of Vengeance, which gives the currently-taking-damage tank a boost bigger than the one given to DPS by gear.
    As people keep on progreessing through content that difference will eventually became the other way around without Blizzard having to tweak/fix anything.

    Honestly I think there's nothing to worry about.

    If you want to rush content, the game is hardcore.

    If you want to enjoy it slowly and with an easy pace, there's plenty of stuff to do. I've been trying to manage it with worklife etc. Got to level 90 in the first week, but tbh, there is so much to do that I have been confused many times about 'what to do next'.

    A few things to note:
    Leveling and questing: takes some time; there are alot of quests and dailies and some of the reputations look grindy. If u use your 4p t13 or early quest greens, you get clobbered alot by normal mobs and u have to use most of ur cooldowns to get by. Storytelling is great. With CRZ, its great if you have friends.

    Talents and abilities: not bad; no one is gonna bug you about your talent choices and the talents are useful in questing/dungeons etc (see above)

    Dungeons: mostly same old stuff except for few fights like taran zhu; have not tried challenge modes but that stuff looks like fun. The glory achievement for dugeons is a tad uninteresting

    Scenarios: great place to try new classes/specs/talents

    Raids: Mogushan Vaults looks ok; still favors ranged dps (prolly one of the major fails)

    Professions: Easy to level which is a great thing.

    I have yet to step into the new bgs or try pet battles, but yeah as you can guess, theres a crap ton of stuff to do.

    Sorry, I got to nip this just here before this becomes a normal stupid thing for people to say.

    There is a major difference between watching a stream from some of the best players in the world, and actually doing something. Rather then watching them, go do them. They're NOT easy.

    Best expansion starter so far in my opinion. have to see what the next few content patches bring to the table, but as far as first patches of expansions go, this one is definitely the best.
    - Questing is better than any expansion, great flow and great storytelling, fun mechanics and variation added.
    - More stuff than ever to do at max level. Dailies, scenarios, Tillers etc, instances in normal/heroic/challenge. Hard to choose what to do....
    - Nice instances length variation, some short some a bit longer but never very long. Plus they are looking very good.
    - More choices than previously to gear up
    Could go on, but these are the main reason why I like this expansion the best of all so far.

    Only downside for me is that they haven't added a tome for flying for alts, so I have to wait a few months before I start on alts...

    MoP is alright, its better than wotlk and cata but worse than tbc. the only real thing that truly annoys me about MoP is that spirit of harmony is bop and not account bound, since some profs virtually have no use for them at this point.

  7. #287
    Overall, about an 8. Not AS amazing as I had hoped, but still pretty darn good. Enjoyed the levelling storylines through the various zones, enjoyed levelling a monk from 1-90 in a week, and now I'm enjoying grinding out some rep just like the good ol' days. So overall, much better than Cata was so far, in all aspects.

    Have never been so addicted to wow like right now...I think... Maybe because I hadn't played for a year or so, but anyways... If only I was in more populated server

    Yes I find that annoying too, but it's eventually gonna change with time.
    Remember that there's a Mote of Harmony NPC that sells stuff. So far I used it to buy golden lotus to craft flasks for raiding.

    I like it, but the heroics are meh. I know they went for wrath style, and I loved wrath style hc's that's fine. I just don't enjoy having the first heroics be as faceroll as they are. I would like the first tier to be hard and then slowly become wrath style hc's with nuke everything AOE style later on in the game.

    Other than that though, I really like it.

I just want your 100% honest opinion on how MoP is so far. Please rate the following categories on a scale of 1/10. 1 being worst, and 10 being best.
    PVP Balance
    PVE Balance
    PVE Difficulty compared to WOTLK Difficulty (1 being way easier, 10 being way harder, 5 being about the same)
    Story Depth (With 1 being boring and 10 being interesting, and gripping) (Does the PVE content relate to, and bolster the story line?)
    You can't really rate any of those yet:

    PVP Balance can be really rated once everyone gets their gear.
    PVE Balance see above.
    PVE Difficulty is what I expected. Easyish heroics, very challenging challenge modes, and normal raids are challenging enough too as far as I've seen. I don't want to wipe weeks for every single normal mode boss. I'd say 9.
    Story depth: 9

    Overall score for MoP? Actually I'd go for 9/10. It's the best expansion so far. So much things to do. Even beats vanilla. There, I said it.

    If you're giving the expac a 7 simply because you're comparing it to TBC, and you truly don't feel like anything so far has compared to TBC, then why do you still play? It's been over 6 years since TBC, dude. Give up the ghost already.

    I stopped playing WoW back in December (played since vanilla) last year but bit the bullet and purchased MoP. I leveled to 86 and a half and really cannot find the motivation to log back in. I would not say its a bad game and it seems like an improvement over Cata but it still lacks that spark that got me playing WoW to begin with and kept me playing through BC and WotLK. All in all I just do not think its worth the £8.99 a month, if it was F2P then I'd probably stick with it.

    99% honesty, I really like this expansion. I give it 8/10, 2 points reserved since Im only 88, and I haven't seen all the new zones and dungeons yet, but if it keeps being so great, it will hit a clear 10 for me.

    So far:

    Level up:
    Simply good. It's fast enough and you get to enjoy a new questing style which actually fits, with many cinematic like in WotLK, you can always skip them if you don't like them.

    Dungeons:
    Now we have HC and challenge modes. HC is the normal mode, way to easy and drops blues, which is good. Challenge modes are the new HC thingie, and it actually is hard

    PvP:
    Too early really.

    PvE raids:
    I personally haven't tryed it out, waiting for some guildies as we are not hard core anymore

    Art:
    a) Music: Amazing, with many BC based parts, or the other way around... ^^
    b)Design: Probably the best to date.

    Perhaps you lack the spark. I find the expansion to be quite refreshing and exciting and I think they really created a product of love here. The lore, the artwork, the races...it's all so detailed and a much needed fork in the road from "kill the dragons and demons and nothing else."

    vanilla and bc were hard mostly because everyone was fucking awful
    I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks this. That combined with the artificial speed bumps of rep grinds and attunements. Being forced to spend longer on simpler content does not interest me. Its bad enough with the rep grind forcing and stupid buff foos iron paw requirements in MoP.

    I would rate it 6/10.

    Music is 10/10.
    World design and beauty is 10/10.
    Questing - first 4 zones are great, last two are boring as hell. So I give it 6/10.
    Dailies are 2/10, only farming dailies are good, rest are boring sh*t.
    Dungeons are 6/10.
    Raids don't know yet.

    Overall I give 6/10. For me cata was 7/10.

    9/10.

    Too much fun/good stuff to do.

    Its so good....I'm having a hard time deciding what to do with all the content....dailies/hc's, leveling proffesions, pet battles, scenarios, or level another toon to 90.... the quests are great too, The Jade Forest and Kun-Lai Summit have taken a spot on my "Favourite Zone's list", even though Dread Wastes is a bit...meh. The Cloud Serpents....probably the coolest mounts since Netherdrakes-

    Haven't really done much end-game content yet, since I have leveled my DK and also monk from scratch, but i tried some heroics yesterday, and they were good. Not particularly hard, but fun to do. Some of the scenarios (Arena) are fun and the dailies too tbh.... haven't tried PvP yet, since im not very into PvP.

    The monk class is also way better than i expected, its just fun in all specs. And dont forget some of the new soundtracks added in the expansion...my god they are mindblowing.

    All together I will give this expansion 9/10 so far....I haven't had a single boring moment yet, and I feel I have soooo much more to do!
