I never left Oribos or my covenant hall. Never. I didn’t do world quests, I didn’t do anything until Korthia dailies and ZM dailies. The maw dailies in 9.0 were horrific.
In Dragonflight I clear world quests bi-weekly, sometimes on multiple chars. I do it because the gold reward is pretty decent and I have no mission table to grind instead for a similar reward. Also, dragon riding is dope and getting around the world is actually fun instead of a slog.
We are literally getting a new zone in 10.0.7 AND 10.1 confirmed already whereas in SL we got Korthia and ZM TOTAL.
I’m not sure this is true either honestly. The covenant mogs were pretty iconic I’ll grant you that but there are a lot more just random mog items in DF. I get them everywhere, from rep rewards to dirt piles to crafted items. And a huge variety of stuff too from awesome swords to a literal cutting board I can wield as a mace. And that’s without even talking about the trading post which has already provided me a freaking flail and who knows what else over the next two years of DF.
I leveled over a dozen toons in SL. I did the campaign once, it was a huge slog. Adventure mode was cool, kind of, but honestly I just dungeon grinded because the adventure mode was also just a slog. Dungeon grinding got incredibly monotonous and boring. I quite literally had more fun leveling through quests and low level dungeons from 1-50 than I did in SL from 50-60.
Drangonflight so far on the 6 characters I’ve leveled (some from 60-70 and some from 1-70) has been super fun. The campaign is quick and fun, again due to dragon riding, and will get you to about 68 without doing any side quests, and there are a ton of options to go from 68-70. World quests, side quests, dungeons, freaking CRAFTING, PvP, etc.
This is just objectively untrue. Talent trees have brought us more power than ever in a much mor fun and accessible way. I think that’s pretty undeniable.
I somewhat get this one, but I personally always hated Horde vs Alliance. Some of my friends will only play Horde and some will only play Alliance and it’s been this way since Vanilla. Now I can play with EVERYONE and that’s pretty freakin cool. Also, as the MMO and WoWs population both naturally decline splitting the player base with factions makes less and less sense and is just not worth it.
