I really like the new zone and can't wait for the other new ones. We've only seen a small part of Verdant Brink, but it's already quite big and full with details. Getting masteries which unlocks new ways to traverse the map gives me a Zelda/Metroid feeling.
I'm not a player who enjoys raids/instanced group content in other games, but I've tried the raid in the beta and I really dig it. It's a really fun experience without the drama that goes with content like this I've experienced in other games.
...and I love the new specialisations. I didn't think that Revenant would be something I like, since it looked quite boring... but I have completely changed my mind now that I've played it. Totally in love with the Herald specialisation, can't wait for HoT.
Sorta, I suppose. New specs to learn for classes to go along with a whole new class. New zones to explore. Mastery system stuff (maybe now I will finally work on a legendary).
Oddly enough, I'm not very excited for raids. If they're going to be super serious "hardcore" content, then I will simply pass at this point. I have zero desire to plan my evenings around being on at a set time in order to raid. Years of doing that in WoW has burned me out on doing it anymore at all.
For the most part. But, I find myself very disappointed with the Druid above all else. It's awkward because Rangers have fairly awful utilities and traits, at least compared to the other professions, the decision to make their elite specialization so niche is maddening to me. At least with the other professions that probably won't be running their elites, Elementalists and Warriors are doing so because their core specializations are insanely powerful.
