After about nine months of not playing (the longest I stayed away since the game came out), I resubbed for Pandaria. I had a lot of problems with Cataclysm, and the MoP announcement really didn't do anything for me at first, but the new zones are breathtaking. Blizzard does better zone design than any other MMO I've seen.

The new expansion, Warlords of Draenor, has been announced. While my reaction to MoP was entirely :|, my reaction to WoD has been about half :| and half Cheesy.

They're finally updating all the character models, which is cool. And adding their own variation on player housing - which is entire player towns. I think those two things are both very cool.

The plot, though...it's pretty laughably bad. After being defeated in Siege of Orgrimmar, Garrosh somehow escapes and goes back in time. He flees to Draenor before it became Outland, unites all the Orc tribes, and plans to invade present-day Azeroth. I just...I dunno, I can't get into the story of Warcraft at all anymore. The new 90-100 zones are basically a redesign of the 60-70 zones? Eh, I do trust Blizzard with zone design but I'm not loving the idea.

Also, after years and years of vague hype, the Warcraft movie is full steam ahead and seems to follow the plot of the original Warcraft: Orcs and Humans.

Only Shadowmoon Valley, Nagrand, and Talador seems to be the similar to the original zone in Outland. And considering how beautiful it looks in Draenor and how hellish it was in Outland, that's saying something. Do not underestimate the effects of a world being torn asunder has on its geography.


For the story, as a big lore nerd, I'm kind of hating the direction their taking. It's really cool to go back to Draenor, as I was always fascinated with the Orc homeworld, but maaaannnn are they handling it terribly.

As for the gameplay changes, it's seems very... underwhelming? Very few new features, very few dungeons, very few hooks to actual pull me back into playing the game. Mostly just refinements and polishing up old mechanics.

What I'm saying is: Call me when there is heroic Karazhan.
