    Best expansion yet so far... and yes I have played since Vanilla. More to do than there ever has been and I like the 1st tier of raids. As long as the future raids are upto scratch i'll be very happy. Also liking the idea of these little patches that don't necessarily introduce new raids (operation shield wall).

    No. I unsubbed from it pretty quickly. Cataclysm held my interest longer.

    And if you rage every time you see a Black Friday deal on something you already bought, you need to see some sort of therapist, because your blood pressure must be astronomical at this point.
    But it's ok to rage about video game children being kidnapped.

    Indeed I am. Enjoying it much more than Cata.

    I unsubbed recently. Hoped I would be interested in it longer but the desire to play dropped off very quickly. Brand new expansion and only a couple weeks in I was just logging in to raid. Then I didn't even want to do that. I don't think the money I spend was worth it. I guess the game and I are just too far along different paths to exist together anymore.

    His opinion, no need to bash it just because it isn't yours.

    I got my monies worth when I was subbed, this expansion is fantastic, lore etc is very well paced, fresh, interesting and engaging (I like how there's meaning behind the questing, finally) and each zone increases in intensity as you progress and doesn't feel taped together with used tape like previous expansions. Not sure how you're missing the lore associated with the Mogu and Mantid (pay attention maybe? though I'm guessing your intent for this thread is most probably nefarious), there's plenty of explanation and outlay provided, in fact there seems to be a good chunk provided in almost each zone (with more to come in future patches no doubt).

    Did you quest through the Dread Wastes at all and if so, did you go through the entire zone just skipping all the quest text?

    Yes, I log in everyday and make progress. Expansion is going good for me.

I think the existence and tone of the zone is fine, but I also think it can feel a bit detached to go there and be worried about annoying rabbits and stubborn weeds when the threat of war is looming overhead.
    I loved the Valley of the Four Winds!

    If you want to understand the full story of any WoW expansion, I believe you need to fully quest through all the zones, regardless of when you hit 90. I know a lot of people don't bother when they max out, but that is, like most things in WoW, their choice.

    I think Townlong Steppes is actually my least favorite zone (I liked parts of the quests, though) and I'm not a big fan of the southern portion of Kun Lai.

    Jade Forest introduction was fantastic.

    From there, it was pretty much about discovering the various elements of Pandaria before the troops arrive.

    Not really, not anymore. I have to volunteer for the bench because of the mage changes it makes no sense to bring me when people just do more dps now, when before the margin was quite significant. So I'm currently paying $15 to do fuck all.

    This is quite surprising actually when you compare the amount of content. However reasons vary, I found Cataclysm lackluster because I was not interested in any of the story that was going on, that and Deathwing was a letdown compared to Arthas.

    Nothing surprising about it. Progression is simple to slow in Mists. In fact everything in this game is to slow and offers to little reward. Lot's of content isn't that impressive when it's all gated and all rng and all just meant to keep you playing while you get NOWHERE. I much prefered Cataclysm. Yea I was bored 2-3 months in but at least in that 2-3 months I enjoyed myself and felt I was progressing. In mists in the first month I unsubbed because nothing was getting me anywhere and I wasn't progressing. LFR wasn't giving me shit. Dailies weren't giving me shit. I was getting to little valor and the cap was to low. Hell even the NPCS were telling me to go slow. Ultimately it was just frustrating.

    In the end their is very little difference between being bored because you don't like what's available to you and being bored because you exhausted everything you liked doing. The latter is probably better. At least I had fun in that model.

    Yeah its been pretty good. Haven't done dailies in a long time, gave up on them really. I would much rather do anything other than the same quest every day for a month. I might go back to them for more token rolls though...

    Oh Jaylock... what happened. I was ready to see your responses to what I am going to say, but you can't at the moment. Sad times.

    Anyway,

    I do feel as though I have gotten my money's worth out of this expansion. Through, maybe not for the reasons you might expect.

    This expansion presented me with the challenge of keeping my raid team together. Our main tank didn't come back for this expansion and a couple other people left to be able to be more active in real life. So here comes this daunting task and I said "Challenge Accepted". At this point, we started raiding late (as it's taken me quite a while to find any replacements) but that journey has been fun for me.

    Sure, the game has some frustrating moments... mainly the sheer amount of daily quests. That has been enough to get me close to burn out, but then I realized a couple things. I wanted the reward at the end, so I was the one doing it to myself. I didn't necessarily have to do them, but I am glad I did. I also realized that once a faction is revered/exalted I didn't need to go back. It also meant that there were less factions for me to have to grind on any given day. So, now, I only have 4 factions left but I only work on 2 of them at a time. Shado-pan and Klaxxi are going to be last.

    I just started dabbling in Pet battles and I am slowly working on my archeology. It's been a lot of fun. I am really enjoying what Blizzard has offered us. That said, there is 1 thing I do absolutely hate in this game.

    Dealing with the Grummels. For the love of god... I thought I wanted to punt gnomes... No, I want to punt these guys so bad. If I hear another one say "What's your Luckydo?" I might go apeshit.

    Otherwise, the rest of the game has been good for what I have spent in to it.

    Now, come back soon Jaylock so I can see your thoughts on my post.

    You don't know Jaylock all that well do you? When he posts a question like this, he has his side picked out and will passionately defend it regardless of what others bring up. It's just the way he is. We have learned to accept it. It's like Trassk and his passion for the Orcs. I can't fault them, though they are sometimes overly passionate about their opinions. Smile and Nod. Smile and Nod.

    Well anyone has his own reasons to unsub. Some unsub just because their class was nerfed and others just because they dont get the loot they want as fast as they want.

    I remenber a few of your posts and i believe the main reason u unsubbed was due to the fact that u were paying to play the game and u werent getting the loot u wanted as frequently as u wanted. Entitlement is a serious issue with gamers lately specially blizzard games.
    Ultimately its their fault to catter to this type of gamers.

    But let me ask you this : if u got all the loot u wanted when u wanted what then? Wouldnt u unsub too?

    Right. See now you'll just reduce my criticism to I'm entitled. You know what that's fine though. Keep telling people who are frustrated with the game that they are entitled. Instead of calling for some moderation and reasonable change you'd rather turn on your fellow players and shit all over them. Good Job. Keep it up. Turn this into cataclysm 2.0

    The simple reality is that this game isn't rewarding enough. That doesn't make me entitled, it makes the games reward to time structure extremely poor. It's obviously a balance issue ( I don't expect get everything in a day or a week or a month) and we can agree to disagree on the nature and exact amount of that balance but when you just immediately resort to calling me entitled it helps no one.

    To answer your question. It depends. If I got all the loot I wanted in 2-3 months let's say and Blizzard takes 7 months to release new content then yes I would unsub. In either case it leads me to unsubbing. As I said in the one instance I at least enjoyed myself for the couple months I was playing. IN the other case I was bored from the get go.

    Yes. It's better than Cataclysm for sure.

    I like the new raids (more than any Cataclysm raid). I'll finish my pandaren ambassador tomorrow (damn you Klaxxi). I explored everything (finished both The Relic Hunter achievement and the new one added in 5.1). I got all my professions to 600 and I'm trying to finish my last cooking achievement which will take me 28 days. After I finish Klaxxi I'll finish my Archaeology and Fishing achievements. This Sunday I'll start doing challange modes. I don't know when I'll start the pet battles.

    In Cataclysm all what I had was: raid....and thats it.

    Considering I bought this game with money I got from diablo 3 selling a 4-affix item helm without socket, so yeah
