As it is, there's NOTHING to this expansion that would keep anyone entertained for very long at all.
What's that? Garrisons? Well, here's the thing about garrisons. It's all an automated thing. You send NPCs off to do stuff for you with a few clicks. And that's it. you don't actually do anything, except point fingers and NPCs do your bidding.
At least in other games, you're busy doing other stuff, so you don't have 'time' to do your crafting, so you send your companions to do your crafting while you're busy saving the world or whatever. With this...well, there's nothing else to do.
It's an empty expansion with no foundation and a singular copied feature from other games that do it better. Oh, and updated graphics that have been promised for several years now and won't be finished by the time the expansion drops six to seven months from now.
In all honesty, the No Flying thing is just, as was said above, the deal-breaker.
Sorry! haha =)

When this expansion's numbers end up in the toilet, you'll see a repeat of the Great Nerfing of 4.2 fame, with them doing a 180 degree shift in game direction again and they'll fall all over themselves, catering to the people that dumped the game because of the latest POS expansion.
Hopefully, after WoD results in the 3rd consecutive fail-expansion with another 2mil sub loss, they'll finally fire those retards in charge of Development and get the game back to LK quality stuff again.
YOU might LIKE it, but there's nothing wonderful about it.
What's so full of wonder about ground mounts? Where's the wonder? If you want ground mounts mount up on one right now and go play every day on ground mount only, it's soon gonna be wonderempty.
" As for MoP If you actually had loved East Asian culture (South Asian, North Asian, South East Asian cultures are wildly different from the East Asian ones) you would know that MoP represents or channels NOTHING of it. Entire MoP "Asian theme" is essentially "Asia as seen by dumb Westerners, inspired by Hong Kong martial arts epics". "
What I AM saying is that there are new games being developed with new development teams and new management teams and some of them are quite good. What I AM saying is that if you are tired of WoW, don't look for the company to be rebuilt from scratch along with their products. There are more companies than Blizzard out there and they often make good games. Go play them. You don't need to rely on a Blizzard, now or old, for a good gaming experience.
Then I hear about all the things they are removing, simplifying, etc. Then no flying. That is what did it for me. That is what made me unsub what was already a boring MoP experience. Why stick around if I know that I don't like the direction the game is going? Especially since this expansion is all about taking away features and rehashing old maps.
There are so many amazing games out and coming out I won't be bored. Blizzard needed to step up their game not completely fumble the ball again like they did in Cata and MoP.
I don't see that happening in WoD.
