    Enjoying the questing way more than BfA and I daresay more than Legion also.

    That's exactly what it means. That is the exact definition of what not a grind is.

    I feel like its better but im comparing it to the groan inducing 2 years of bfa burnout i felt at the end instead of the start of bfa.

    Best expac for me since Wrath. Incredible looking unique zones. Actual player choice (covenants). Gear feels good again. No more daily chores. Endgame is alt friendly. PvP is back on the menu. Torghast is the best single-player content theyve ever added. Etc

    This is so much better than BFA, and even Legion (for me), it's not even remotely remotely close.

    I have a feeling I will not be renewing my sub.

    Very quick overview so far - I've not particulary felt the zones were massively exciting. It's very scripted, with little/no variation in terms of quests you have to do making it feels very linear, which is something I've disliked about it compared to Legion and BFA, where you chose your zone and focus on what you want to. Instead you're doing it all, because you have to to make progress at 60. Not a fan of that personally. Zones however are amazing looking, very unique and it feels fun to see what can be done. Oribos is nice as well.

    I don't like the Maw (DK player). It honestly just feels like a stupid restriction not to be allowed to mount and I'm spending my time running from A to B because why exactly? I already have a friend calling it the bore. Eye of the Jailer filling up from someone killing a mob near me meant I can't do my campaign further at this point until tomorrow.

    I'm still undecided on Covenants, but I like the conduits, idea of legendaries and I'm looking forwards to new things. I have some nuances (Callings don't seem different from Emissaries beyond you have to go click them in your zone), the lack of the flightmasters whistle, professions having different caps (Fishing 200, Mining 150, Blacksmith 100, Cooking 75, why exactly?). Also what are these mission table things? I don't really understand what they were trying to do there atm.

    I've done some dungeons, they seemed decent to me and I enjoying doing heroics with friends at 140 running into them and thinking about M+. I think the expansion has lots of interesting things, and Torghast seems okay, but I haven't done enough to make a more solid opinion.

    So that's my very early overview. Not the quality of WoD questing, or the variety of Legion/BFA to me but decent. Max level seems okay and I'm more excited to progress conduits and soulbinds than Azerite, but I don't think it's as exciting as Legion's Artifacts from an inital viewpoint, but it has only been two days. I'll give more opinions when I've played more and levelled an Alt or two.

    Yes, it's good. Not great. Saying it's the best thing since WOTLK is absolutely damning.

    Someone reading that expecting anything of the quality of MoP, would be devastated.

    Not liking the Ardenweald storyline. Its like something written for a high school play.

    You know exactly what the question meant so no need for all this coping mental gymnastics.
    The question becomes "Was SL any good?" WHEN Shadowlands is over.
    You can grasp at the straws of the English language all you want but you're just making yourself look like an ass.

    What do you mean "sounds like"? There are completely different things. I mean your opinion is your own, but at least have basic knowledge about things you criticize.

    Faster leveling (like 5-6 hours if skipping all unnesessary, cutscenes, etc), less farm (you can do Torghast two times a week + a couple of cov and maw dailies, thats all, nothing more if you do not plan to participate in mythic world first race), more forgiving mechanics (like you can't fuck up Torghast try like Visions because you can start over and over if you fail, without any penatlies).
    But no mounts in Maw is total sh*t.

    Covenantas are ok, not so big difference (for my class-spec difference between best cov and worst cov, using best conduits ofc, - something like 6% according to simulations).

    Best leveling experience that I can remember, beating even Legion and WoD.

    Time will tell if the content patches will hold up but so far im calling it lit.

    Just arrived in the winged Smurfs zone so it’s way too early to tell, but the slow pace with a lot of dialogues till now was nice.

    I have good vibes.

    Also no, something not being an issue for me doesn't mean that somebody can't have a valid critique. The issue tends to be that 'I don't like this, fire Ion, I'm depressed and explicitly look for reasons to hate the game I pretend not to play any more' isn't a quality critique. But yeah sure. If you stop to look at a car crash, apparently that means you're in a car crash when you do that? While we're talking same boats and all...
    So you are someone who complains about complainers. Funny. Just put them on ignore if you don't like what they have to say. There will always be people with different view points. That's the internet for you, sir.

    Only managed to get up to 58 so far. Loat a day to lag and work...

    So far so good. None can say if it is good until maybe in a couple of raids

    But Shadowlands beta showed that this is a good expansion (bugs and issues aside). I would only wish that they would remove this new trend of layers of complexity (mind you, it does not mean difficulty). Borrowing powers and having all this weird systems is fun but scary if badly managed :/ See BfA..

    I spent an hour and a half doing Maw quests, killing events and Horde and mobs aplenty for the first day and never had the eye of the jailer on me more than level 3. You must have been in there way longer. It's not true that "one guy kills a mob near me and my eye of the jailer filled up".
