    Well lets see, sum it up into a few points:
    - Leveling feels slow, to me with many alts this is an annoyance.
    - Reputations are to slow, compared to the reward you get. But this is somewhat "fixed" in a future patch, so no big deal.
    - Where your dailies are located was confusing when I first hit 90, could at least have added one of those yellow ! on the map like they did for many other quests, so you had an idea on where to go.
    - Scenarios where very confusing the first time I did them, they could make them better for sure.
    - The music (most anyway) is great.
    - I liked most of the zones, valley of the four winds was the most bland. And Kun'lai felt to big, favorite is dread wastes.
    - Many more interesting quests than before, kept things interesting.
    - Having my own farm is awesome, but growth patterns are inconsistent. And it should be more obvious when your crops are done (usually a day, but it varies a lot).
    - Pet battles didn't turn out to be as fun as I imagined (as I love pokemon), instead it got kinda annoying after a while (max lvl pet is like 11).
    - I do not like the world bosses returning, the same drama and complaints that where seen with the old ones came back. Should have made them instanced encounters.
    - Professions are probably to easy to skill up now, AND materials are extremely easy to come by as well. Making it hard to earn any decent gold on either gathering or crafting, as prices are already very low. Cooking was over complicated, fishing still sucks, first aid is still uninteresting and archaeology is more or less the same - just faster.
    - The lorewalkers faction was awesome, now we just need it to cover even more lore!
    - The klaxxi are great, really enjoying them - to me one of the most interesting factions so far. And great voice acting for them!

    All in all ? MoP is ok so far, it's still early. We will see a lot more changes made, for better or worse.

    I like MoP alot. So far at level 88 it has exceeded my initial thoughts on it. I also think that it looks very promising and will get even better!

    Honestly? Better then Wrath and Burning Crusade. All the expansions added something important to the game, even Cata.

    Cataclysm only had two major failings - spread out zones and Dragon Soul not being long or hard enough. Gear inflation was also a bit extreme, but that's what Wrath caused.

    Burning Crusade had a lot of failings too. Questing was grindy and dull, the zones were far too drastically different from their neighbours (going from swamp to mountains to floating mana-islands without any transition at all), attunements were annoying and entry level end-game was too hard (and a lot late end-game was too easy - only Sunwell had every boss being a ballbreaker of an encounter).

    MoP's only failing so far? Not a huge selection of dungeons, especially while leveling. Only four, infact, until you hit level 90. Kind of wish there was more. And it would have been nice having lower level Scenerios as well, integrated with the quests to give their story some more context. Otherwise, its steller all around.

    This thread got more popular than I thought. I like reading everybody's opinions about the expansion, and now I'm looking forward to playing it more than ever, as soon as I can.

    From what I have played. I enjoyed it, it's to an extent more of the same, but the story is interesting, the design is pretty fun, and I am enjoying some of the mechanical stuff.

    7/10 for the most part so far, not great, but by no means terrible.

    I'm gonna be nitpicky cuz I'm bored. Wrath didn't cause gear inflation nor did Cataclysm. It is the fundamental game design. If you look at average health increases and DPS increases tier by tier, the rate of increase is mostly the same % from tier to tier. But actually from wrath they changed, they actualy decreased those percentages a bit, but after the change you can see the scaling pretty much stats the same tier to tier. The reason it exists is because as your numbers get larger, you need a larger increase(the number is larger the percentage is the same) to feel the increase, to sense the progression. If you got a flat additional 1 health every level, going from level 1 to 2 is exciting because your health just doubled. Going from level to 100 to 101 is not because 1 health is only a 1% increase and doesn't mean squat. Apparently they have worked out what they feel is an ideal percentage amount to scale with so that players feel the increase when moving from one to tier of gear to another. Also note this is why the gear squish is going to suck for player who level, because all of a sudden there is going to be little to no noticeable increase/progression while leveling.(and the removal of talents just make it that much worse)

    So far I'm loving it. Mogu Shan Vaults is awesome, and surprisingly difficult. Elegon is one of the best encounters yet.

    I give it an 8 or 9. I initially didn't like so much stuff being locked behind reputations but I've been having so much fun questing, loving the new dungeons and leveling professions was so easy that III haven't enjoyed WoW this much in a couple of years.

    I can't break it down on your scale yet, but I have to openly say that MoP is the best expansion this game has seen. Until now I have been of the "BC is the best exp" crowd, but this expansion blew all of my expectations out of the water and gave me more. I hate questing. . .well, maybe not hate, but once I reach max level I tended to avoid it in past expansions except for dailies. I fully intend to finish every single quest this exp has to offer even though I am already gearing for raiding. The story is above and beyond what I expect from an MMO and can even rival some of my favorite single player RPGs of days past. The dungeons are all fun and each boss has interesting mechanics. The dungeon environments feel varied and each one has a unique feel to it (though I guess that can be said about all of the expansions, heh). The grind I missed so much is back. Yes, I like grinding for things (that's what she said?).

    I seriously have nothing bad to say about MoP. It beats the hell outta BC and Wrath. . .Cata really was not good for end game content past T11. The only good thing from cata was some of the story and the redone vanilla zones.

    like like saying pvp is only 3v3. there more things then heroic raids.

    and i really liked the lvling part on my warrior. pull to much and i died. and i loved the quest/strong mobs. that do stuff you need to avoid. otherwise you won't kill them solo.

    More of the same. Anyone who thinks different is just deluded.

    The game will be bleeding subs like crazy in a month or so, when everyone is bored to tears again.

    MoP is WoW, if you did not like WoW before, you wont like it now.

    I give it at least 3 months. That is how long it took for Cat to start bleeding subs. If Blizzard doesn't come out with a real content update in 3 months, and they can't keep making frequent content updates, yeah I think people are going to start to bail. Only time will tell though if Blizzard can actually follow through.

    Just looked at your forum posts. They're all just you talking shit about WoW. It seems like you hope that the more you talk trash about it, the faster the game will "die". If you hate the game so much, you'd think you'd be spending your time on something more productive, instead of sitting around talking about it.

    I'm having fun. Heroics aren't a nightmare to dread LFD, raids are pretty challenging at the start to the average guild, and pet battles are freaking fun as all hell. Heck, I'm even enjoying the farm! I didn't even think I'd be using it.

    If reps weren't so locked down and if I could turn in my Lesser Charms more than once a week (I'm already nearly up to two stacks AFTER I did my turn-in on Tuesday), I'd give it a perfect 10. Right now, I'm giving it an easy 8.

    Who are you to decide who will leave the game or not? Keep your mouth shut about it. You have your right to talk about your own opinion. Don't talk about subs bleeding etc.
