It's the most refreshing take on WoW in a long, long time.
Still better than having all the raids be shit easy though.
I just want to note that with my previous post I might have seemed very harsh and very... unaccepting of other's opinions. People are of course entitled to their own opinion, and while I might seem very offensive when exaggerating my own opinion, I do accept other's opinions. It's mostly just that you seemed to have a very opinionated and offensive tone, and I usually treat other's with the respect that they kind of show.
Im only lvl 88. Still some impressions. The questing is still collect 10 bear arses. Sometimes its spiced up a bit, and a few quests actually surprised a little. But yeah...10 bear arses in disguise is still 10 bear arses. I start to hate questing again. Doing dungeons is a bit more fun, but really the challenge isnt there. You might wipe if you do a boss for the first time. After that you really have to be bad to wipe, at least in the 4 dungeons i've done. So if you started to dislike questing previously I wouldnt get my hopes up about Pandaland.
Best content Blizzard has ever produced
@Ghostcrawler:Some advice: [My pet issue] is why there were sub losses is one of the weaker arguments players use. Players don't have that data.

PVP Balance (i have not done as much pvp as i would have liked, too much other stuff to do, but i feel more balanced now than i have since BC)
PVE Balance 8, downranked cause some classes feel low, but no DPS roles feel OP, tanks are another story but where adjusted recently
PVE Difficulty 6-10 there is content that is on par with Wotlk, 5 mans normals/heroics, but then the challenge modes and raids are much more difficult and interesting, as a semi-hardcore guild we where able to use quest blues to clear Naxx in wrath, MsV is not the same, loosing to enrage is a very real possibility, heroic gear is necessary, which i think is a good thing, and even though the 5 man regulars are simple in that you ought not wipe at all, they are still fun and interesting zones and VERY artistically awesome.
Story Depth 10, there are tons of stories going on, and alot of things that create some great moments and emotion, the story interacts with the 5 mans like it used to in Vanilla and even more-so, i found myself completing a zones quests than immediately finding a group to do the 5 man in that zone, even though i lost out on the "random bonus" and raid, everything feels interconnected and there is some fun silly things too, not only that but you are rewarded for searching out the little nooks and crannies of the world with tons of little story tid bits here and there.
Overall i would rank it as my favorite expansion thus far, and i have been subbed since 2006

Rejoice, For very bad things are about to happen...
It's also fine that he thinks it's the best expansion. I think overall it's a better expansion than cataclysm. It's the second part where I presume he will think the next expansion is blizzards best content. It's basically Blizzard can only do right at this point...
For the love of all that is good, YouTube video. I would fall out of my chair laughing if you could literally do this and make a video of it. XD
But you can't...you wouldn't run down halls if you did this. You're using hyperbole to try and exaggerate your complaints. It never helps an argument. Tone it down, acknowledge the advantages of what MoP has, detail the complaints, present rational compromise and solutions. I think you've got some legitimate gripes and even reasonable solutions, but emotion is coming through in your posts more than constructive criticism.

"There is good and evil in this world; we must find the black and white in the gray."
So it seems like there's a large focus on Dailys this time around. I enjoyed Wrath of the Lich King and Burning Crusade Dailys, but I hated Cataclysm. Is there at least a wide option of dailys that you can do? That are spread out through the continent?

I hate these casual Fridays ruining it for real Fridays.
One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?
I can't judge it yet. So many changes to all of the classes I have sitting at 85, plus a completely new class that I can't just decide which to make my main.
Definitely a good expansion, if they would put reputation tabards back it would be almost perfect.
