    And people fall for it every single time.

    Not having all classes ready four months before launch feels pretty far behind though. This is one of the most important things to get it done right and at the start of the alpha they're still contemplating about talent trees without even having a first round of them ready? Uhm.

    At-least for me, the most exciting (initial) thing to see first is ALWAYS the Map(s) for the new Continent/Zones.

    Wow, I thought that it’s pretty much common to share that map excitement if not, I join the map club then!

    Everything I want to know about is Dracthyr/Evoker related.
    Their talent trees.

    How customizable the Dracthyr ‘barber shop armor’ is, since (from last we heard) they cannot wear/transmog a lot of normal armor.

    If Dracthyr can be their own mount outside of the Dragon Isles. (Outside of the “DH+ movement they mentioned)

    I think unfortunately its one of the downsides of them revealing and presenting the new expansion like that compared to the old BlizzCon panels. Even if there isn't polished map yet, normally we get a image of the concept and planning art they used.

    Unpopular opinion (maybe), but I am ALWAYS excited for a new expansion (doesn't matter if the previous expansion was good or not). IMO, nothing beats that excitement of the Announcement, Alpha, Beta, Pre-Patch, and official launch cycle. As others have said before, a new expansion will "usually" be exciting and fun (no matter what) for at-least that first month or so.

    Was excited for MoP because monks could roll... excited for WoD for new character models, excited for Legion because of pretty much everything, excited for BFA because of allied races and the zones, excited for Shadowlands because of the customization and now excited for DF because of new talents, dragonriding and dragon isles.

    Also the new ui.. much needed overhaul, bigger HD map )

    Seems to ripe for abuse, for one. Then you have the issue of having no accountability. What do you do when some DPS have tagged the same mob but can't meet the DPS threshold? You can't see who it is and you can't kick them, so its kind of inviting an environment of rage like you see with Shifting Stargorger in ZM.
    You don't even need to form groups for this. Guild Wars 2 does it good. No idea if there are technical limitations for WoW engine though.

    But then you got what you have right now with world bosses: Mindless target dummies because there is no accountability. You can't have high DPS requirements because you can't do anything about people doing 200 DPS. You can't have (any, really) hard mechanics, because most players are just not good enough, and if someone fucks it up, even if the mechanic just affects them, they will still have boosted the boss HP.

    Hell, GW2 has this exact issue where they can't have any metas that are more than just "autoattack and sometimes switch targets" because, as Dragons End has shown, if any more is required of the player base, it just doesn't work.
