What I love about WoD

OK, I have written thousands of words about everything I dislike about WoD, so I thought maybe I should list the things I really like about it.

Here’s my list:

1.  Leveling from 90-100 is relatively painless, and it is great fun the first time you do it.

2.  Gara.

3.  Higher item stack numbers.

4.  Reagents tab in bank.

5.  New heirlooms method.

6.  Concept of chambered bosses in dungeons, so that raid teams can do more of an a la carte selection if they so desire.

7.  Ummmm …..

I thought I could come up with more, but I thought a lot about it — was treating this as a serious exercise — and that’s pretty much it.

I’m sure some of you really like other aspects of WoD, I’d love to hear about them, maybe that would help me think more positively about the expansion.

About Fiannor
I have a day job but escape by playing WoW. I love playing a hunter, and my Lake Wobegonian goal is to become "above average" at it.

  1. *The dungeons and raids are beautifully designed. Interesting scenery, challenging mechanics and nice lay out.
    *Garrisons or Tillers 2.0 — Many cons but thank goodness I’m not running two hours every night to mine ore in Pandaria!
    *A mysterious End Boss — who will it be, can we guess?
    *One-and-done rares. Once you’ve done it, you are done — no circling the continent for Warbringers.
    *Fishing is rewarding (if you like fishing, I do). It ties to buff foods, first aid and mounts/pets.
    *I can make top end gear while being a low level crafter — thank goodness I’m not grinding up Blacksmithing on a new toon in old content.
    *World Bosses. It’s party time! Show off your mounts and pets.
    *The gold making is absurd. I’m in-game rich and it is still piling up.
    *The rep grinds are rough but the achievements are fun, scattered and varied.
    *Pre-Made Custom
    *They promised a Savage Land and delivered. All ground mounted, getting from where you are to where you want to go is not the time to fold your laundry. You have to ‘play’ to get there.
    *Alt Friendly. Ever wanted to try a Pally Healer? 90 Boost, craft some uber-gear for your new Pally and have at. Skip heroics, jump into LFR and then surf pre-mades.
    *My bank looks great. The reagent tab made all the difference. The quality of life improvements have set a new standard.

    Personally, I’m having a great time.

    Interesting, most of your likes are huge dislikes for me, but it’s a good thing not everyone is the same, eh?

    I would say as a footnote to your “alt friendly” item — it is alt friendly up to level 100, at which point it becomes pretty much alt-hostile if you have more than 1 or 2 alts that you are actually interested in playing and maybe gearing up enough to run a few raid team alt runs. In Mists, I easily kept 1 main and 5 alts at a gear and proficiency level I was comfortable raiding with, but in WoD I am struggling with 1 main and 2 alts, and honestly I feel I do not get enough practice on the alts to be confident enough to raid with them (I don’t count LFR).
