    I played WoW Vanilla when I was 27. I'm now 40. I find it very hard to want to make time to sit at my pc for 2+ hours after teaching online all day. Last thing I want to do is encourage blood clots, haha.

    So I am extremely casual since the very end of Legion. I will say this about Shadowlands:

    1) I am loving the Campaign quests. Better than BFA's. I like how it goes on for so long like Suramar rep quests.
    2) To add to #1, the copious amounts of quests. For a casual like me, I always have something to do.
    3) Feels like there is too much to do, I feel this is because I'm casual.
    4) Leveling is much much much better than it was in BFA. I suspect they are starting to make it get to the point where levels don't really matter. It's about unlocking, not leveling. Can't do this area without previously unlocking it.
    5) Torghast really should be more fun for solo players. I don't know how but it should be. I've only been in there once and struggle to find time to say, "Ok, I'm gonna spend hours here tonight." I can't justify that length of play time anymore.

    I would say this is a good expansion. A little too busy for me but I won't complain about that.

    The only downside for me is that Torghast is getting boring and recent nerfs do not help the cause.
    It would really be no one's concern but my own when I finish my campaigb quest. Fuck this timegating bullshit

And we still get extra stuff to do like Torghast which is cool.

    People still talk about Vanilla/TBC/Wotlk and those times were even more basic than how the game is now. The 'new' stuff in an expansion like Wotlk was vehicle combat which was terrible. That's not the reason people liked that expansion. All you really need is fun dungeons, good raids and have the classes/specs at least be enjoyable. If you can hit those 3 you don't need fancy side stuff like scenarios or islands.
    Wotlk introduced much more than vehicle combat.
    U
    It brought
    - Hardmodes (that were avtually cool, see Ulduar)
    - progressive Storytelling (srsly, compare the questlines from classic and BC with the wotlk ones)
    - Scalable Difficulty for Raids
    - Death Knights
    - 10! New zones
    - An open world battleground that had direct impact on the world (if you wanted to do the bosses there your faction needed to control it)
    - Achievements! (the system itself)
    - Inscription
    - 14! Dungeons and 8 Raids
    - Dual spec
    - Dungeon maps
    - A new battleground that featured the new system of vehicle combat

    I am actually enjoying this expansion - ill give it a 7/10 ( the maw just pisses me off sometimes )

    9/10 - would like a bit more class tuning for low dps specs and wish non DH tanks could be closer in power for m+. I like the difficulty finally being raised and not nerfed when cry babies come out on every tuesday complaining they cant do everything in the first minute of being logged in.

    Time gating is annoying but they really don't want players to grind out everything in 1 week then quit because they burned out.

    7/10

    Better than BFA, could have been done better itself.

    Your biggest take-away from Wrath was "vehicle combat?"

    Mine was "holy shit, we're going after my favorite villain from WCIII!"

    Far from perfect, but a huge improvement compared to BFA. My updated ranking of expansions is now:

    WotLK
    TBC
    Legion
    SL
    MoP
    Cata
    WoD
    BfA

    I would say it's 12 out of 10. Best expansion ever!

    Shadowlands has a lot of potential but it's held back by dreadful gearing, poor class balance and overtuned raids (possibly due to lack of gear).

    You are surely over optimistic

    The poor balance is largely because of the unnecessarily borrowed-power system that Blizz keeps shoveling into players' mouth.
