    You mean every unrelated pandaren monkey/silithid 2.0/tauren 2.0 problems I have to solve which don't advance the story in any way whatsoever except say "you're fixing these things because you caused them, and if you didn't come to this land none of this would have been necessary, since you wouldn't have caused them."?

    You mean Wrathion sending me to war with the opposing force while he knows that's what fuels the shaaaaaaa? And why exactly is our war not bringing it back again?

    You mean the oh so scary shaaaaaaa, 3 or 4 of whose manifestations are defeat throughout dungeons before the expansions even really kicks off in 2nd gear? So much for all powerfull manifestations.

    Or is it the carbon copy of China's history that fascinates you so much about how slaves invented martial arts and how the Great Wall was built to stop the Huns? Because if you like that stuff so much I can recommend some good books on actual history which tells the same events without pandas as protagonists.

    I agree with Shangalar though, the actual Alliance vs Horde stuff in patch 5.1 is actually good (since it's Warcraft). Get a reason to love Jaina again.

    Mists or Pandaria ain't over yet, so I'll have to reserve judgement 'til it's done. But in terms of finished expacs so far, Wrath by a mile.

    Wrath. To me it was the only tightly held together storyline based in lore. TBC, all over the place. Vashj was collecting water? Wat? Cata, also all over the place, multiple story lines going together with no tie up besides "Deathwing got all these people together"

    MOP is going really well, I just haven't seen the rest of it.

    I can't help but laugh at all the diehard fanboys voting MOP.

    I still play the game and will probably continue to do so, but the lore in Mists doesn't even come close to holding a candle to the lore in Wrath.

    MoP has done the best job of explaining and engaging you in the story even if you're like me and haven't been paying attention to the quests and such.

    Even fel reavers in TBC were scarier than the Sha-shit.

    Debatable, if you've completed Storm Peaks or Icecrown in Wrath content or Twilight Highlands from the Cata set.

    Additionally the thread, in my opinion, is comparing the lore/story itself rather than how well it has been presented in each expansion.

    Not really, to me that is. First stepping into Outland I wasn't all that scared of Fel Reavers. They were just big and annoying, not scary.

    Yeah I agree with that. As long as we're counting the revamped quest zones as part of Cata's "story". If not then BC might creep a bit ahead of Cata.

    I know, it's hard to believe warcraft lore would come to rats and rabbits jumping on green meadows, pandas doing kungfu and cooking chinese food, and we are fighting beer barrels and Sha's that came from nowhere.

    The people who wrote the story for MOP should consider first resigning and then going back in time for getting a hardcore lobotomy.

    Only because they snuck up on you, then yelled right behind your back. If there was a big Sha walking around and surprising players, different story.

    Mmmm, I dunno. The storytelling is very rich and deep in MoP. The subject matter isn't as compelling (how can it be when we've already used up all the major lore of the RTS series?) but the way the story is told and all the little details, like random books you can read, the Lorewalkers etc are actually superior to Wrath.

    I'd vote Wrath ahead of MoP, but mostly because it had the Scourge, Arthas and Ulduar to lean on.

    Not a lot more. Just the Burning Legion which is pretty two dimensional. And Sargeras who is an evil god so if we ever do get to fight him it would be kind of ridiculous.

    P.S. Blonde is for girls, blond is for boys.

    I dont know, back when you could not fly, having the fel reavers stomp up behind you whilst questing was a pretty scary moment! for something so big and noisy, its supprising how damm sneaky they are.

    Anyone who voted for BC has obviously never played Warcraft III and knows nothing about Warcraft lore.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAH! WotLK good? That made me laugh. You won't say that if you actually played WC3 and know how much Blizzard butchered Scourge's lore in WotLK. I can't help but laugh at wrath babies who don't know shit about Warcraft's lore and think WotLK was good because LK just looks cool without even knowing what happened before WotLK and how Blizz messed it up in WotLK.

    Would you like to further explain what you mean by this? I might have missed something important.

    Yeah. How great was BC where all we did was going on safaris all day, played with the fungus people and founded Ogri´la... Or Wrath where we spent all day jousting, polymorphed ourselves into giant women and shot apples from the head of a dwarf. That was hardcore!
