    So far i like it better then cata but it took about a month to get to that point in cata.

    But everything on my realm is better so far compared to cata. Places are populated, AH is active.

    It's just how he rolls. Not the first time he's done it and it definitely will not be the last. Still amusing to see it being pointed out by people other than me, from time to time.

    The Klaxxi story was really awesome, I felt really intergrated in the lore for once. Only problem is that it's placed at level 89, and at that time you've become worn out on doing quests and mostly just want them done to hit level cap.

    My bad. I didn't know that. Didn't need to blow up or anything. That's good I like that. Look forward to it then.

    I think I have heard that you are able to use potions and other similar buffs, still. Something to pay in mind when doing them (at least if you are going to aim for gold).

    I really enjoy it so far. few issues with professions that annoy me but on the whole really good. One complaint, not enough dungeons. They only have half the amount that was released in BC.

    Not agreeing with everything he's saying but, Challenge modes only scale gear down, they don't scale them up. Also itemization does make the kind of gear your wearing matter, even if the item level is nerfed, the item budget is usually just better utilized.

    More on topic: MoP has been one of my favorite expacs so far. The only thing I hate is the massive amount of reputation grinds they put in the game, and the pace of rewards from them. It's really weird to get a 437 green from a quest that required Klaxxi Revered. I'm not asking for epics from quests, but the pacing vs rewards is just really off and makes the reputation grinds feel pretty unrewarding but still needed for people who are looking to get the best gear they possibly can for raiding.

    I don't think that it's an option to use potions, it's a necessity if you want to be half decent at challenge modes. Hopefully it is like that, I pray to the gods that it is like that, would give a sense of challenge back, which is what it's all about, it is called challenge mode after all. Pretty stocked to try it out, however, I sadly feel that it's more of a timed run than anything else.

    It would have been an okay amount if they weren't cleared so fast and easily. I don't ever plan on going into Siege of Niuzao Temple again, and I've only done it once. Sadly, random is random.

    3 to 4 more dungeons would have been most welcome.

    In that case is their an ideal item lvl I should have before I try them? Or any kind of marker before I know I'm good to go?

    It's a necessity to use potions. Mostly potions of invisibility though.

    As long as you didn't just ding 90, you should be fine. Bronze is attainable before 463 gear, but it's up to you.

    Loving it all.

    Only few gripes for me would be the amount of valor earned per dungeon/quest, messy reputation rewards (revered for 463, honored for 489) and gated reputations.

    Raid difficulty for normal, currently on elegon but hope to be able to do heroics next time =[.

    Its ok - but not something Im willing to spend much time or money on. So I wanted to unsub after 1 year of annual sub. Payed the 12th month on September 22nd so thought I had done my part. But no... BLizzard is not allowing me to unsub until on the 22nd of october - AFTER the 13th month payment starts. Thats how low BLizzard is sinking to force extra month out of ppl. Disgrace.

    Also, I'm done arguing with you. We're off topic, and it isn't nice to the OP.
    You cleared normal 5 man dungeons in DS gear?

    That's a far cry from clearing naxx25 in Sunwell gear.

    I really like it. I was not optimistic at all. And I hated the Pandaren theme. But so far I'm having a blast.
    "1 in 4 Americans are skeptical on climate change...who gives a shit? That doesn't matter. You don't need other people's opinions on a fact. You may as well have a poll asking: Which number is bigger? 5 or 15? Do Owls exist? Are there hats?"

    PvP balance:
    I PvP mainly as a flag carrier as that is my enjoyment. I find it odd that I heal for more damage then I do currently but that might be gear related.

    PvE balance:
    Not much experience here except when I hit 90 I found it odd that in LFG I can't que for random. I have not run another LFG since then so not sure if completing the instance still gives me JP. I hope it does...

    Overall I would give it an 8 as it stands right now. There is tons of content and I have yet to take part in a lot of it...
    ...Made it through 9 years of wow...

    Exactly how I feel. It's funny, really.

    When they announced Cataclysm at Blizzcon, I was pumped. Seeing crazy Deathwing and a destroyed Azeroth in the trailer got me excited, and I just felt like it would be an amazing expansion. It was okay. I stayed subbed and whatnot, but it wasn't as awesome as I thought it would be.

    When they announced Mists at Blizzcon, my boyfriend and I were just.. speechless in a bad way. We were just like "Is this a joke..?" and talked about quitting WoW. However, we are both really enjoying Mists a lot. I'm really enjoying the Asian theme of the game, and the Pandaren are portrayed as a respectable race than a joke like we initially thought they were.

    Honestly the only thing we're not too happy about is the huge rep grind. But the dailies aren't that bad. They are more group-friendly now. The quest items drop for both my bf & me when we're doing them together, so we're not having to kill double the amount of mobs like we used to do. So we're surviving. =)
    I am a filthy casual!

    MOP is the best expansion since Wrath. In other words it is a lot better than Cataclysm was for me, they went too far with the dailies grinding though.. it's absolutely ridiculous. All round though a great expansion so far for me.

    Didnt read the conversation, but looking back the jump of gear from TBC - Wrath was much smaller than the gear jump from Wrath - Cata or Cata - MOP. The Kil'Jaeden sunwell gloves were basically as good for me as the gloves that dropped in 25man Naxx, due to insane itemisation. Sunwell gear was great and the conversion rating drop and gear quality rise from TBC - Wrath wasnt big enough.

    So that is why Sunwell gear was good enough to clear Naxx 25. Sure Naxx was easy and too easy, but most guilds didnt kill it all right away even so, and most people did replace their Sunwell gear, infact most people didnt have Sunwell gear, only the best guilds in the world had Sunwell gear, and most of those replaced what they could when they could, and the guild who did it first? Well they were none other than the same guild who had already got world first in that same raid instance just over 2 years prior at lvl60, there was nothing new to be learned.

    For me it's really the best expansion so far. My expectations were exceeded in every possible way. Be it the leveling, the raiding, dailies, professions or the world. It's really, really good stuff and you see that Blizzard has tried to raise the bar for content once again.

    So back when I bought it, I didn't really expect too much from it. Pandaria didn't sound that interesting, it seemed to be aimed at a different target audience. While playing through it though I immediately got the feeling of being sucked into the game world again. The story, the landscape, the factions, the instances really feel great and alive. A feeling I had last in BC.

    I am really glad MoP turned out the way it did. I hope it helps WoW stay successful, because in my opinion MoP was the best possible direction for WoW.

    You've guessed it, I'd give it a 10/10 .

    Note: At this point it's impossible to say anything about balance so I refrain from doing it.

    honest opinion? it's one of their best. It feels almost like TBC again, lets be honest, while WoTLK and CATA where fine and dandy lore wise, on a whole those xpacs where terrible. Been waiting a long time to enjoy the game again, and it has finally happened.
    It's not the great who are strong...
