One of my objections to fantasy is that too many writers feel the need to draw out the story across multiple books. Give me a standalone Robert E Howard fantasy story any day.

And WoW was the...

A short story can be just as good as a novel. Poe's short stories are a lot better than Stephen King's novels.

I never participated in raids, and almost never went to instances, so the main story...

It really would have been. The whole trial thing felt really silly, though I'll admit I spent a fair amount of time there.

I didn't mind Yogg-Saron being in Ulduar, but he'd have definitely been better in Azjol-Nerub. The fact that Azjol-Nerub was so small really disappointed me, because I'd always been interested in the...

I loved Vashj'ir. It was easily the best part of Cataclysm for me.

I wish they did. I always liked Kul Tiras, going as far back as Warcraft 2.

I can't comment on Lei-Shen (having never gotten that far), but more localized threats would be better than apocalyptic ones at this point.

The Defias in Vanilla are actually a great example of...

That idea was all right, but for me the main point of the Defias was what they did in Westfall. The original Westfall was one of the best zones in any MMO.

I loved the way how the different zones and races stood out, but still carried that distinct Blizzard style.

Putting the story front and center was definitely a mistake. WoW's great as a setting...

I 100% agree. WoW was a lot more fun when each zone felt like it's own place, and not just a stepping stone to some other plot point.

Agreed, though story has never been a big part of WoW's draw for me. I just liked having a cool setting to explore, and MoP provided that in spades. One of my big problems with WoW's development is...

Mostly, I just liked being able to explore an interesting new realm. Cata and WoD disappointed me since they were mostly revisiting places we'd already seen.

I also think that MoP was surprisingly good, especially considering that the pandaren were a joke race. The way I always explained it to doubters was that pandaren are silly like hobbits, not silly...

It helps that Tolkien and RE Howard were both heads and shoulders above their imitators.

One problem is that any long-running franchise will either change to the point where you no longer care...

Very well said, actually. As you get older, a lot of settings that once interested you gradually fade away, leaving behind only the ones that truly captured your imagination. I've also tuned out of...

Some of it is just that WoW can no longer really surprise players. It's a long-in-the-tooth franchise, and locked in to the same storytelling patterns.

A lot of us have simply moved on to other...
