    Hope so. They've been far too complacent for a while now.

    Sadly it might be too late for a dramatic change/enhancement in the next expansion as that's almost certainly too far into development by now and it wouldn't surprise if it turns out to be more of the same again, with a new coat of paint.

    I think universally most people who quit the game will agree that the Panda theme wasn't brilliant, however it's the design of endgame that ultimately forced them to leave.

    Now they're introducing Flex raids that let you raid with as many people as you like as long as you have 10 people (and with difficulty lower than Normal), I hope they get rid of LFR which kills any sense of achievement and community.

    Whatever they've been working on artistically, they can always change the design in response to the overwhelming negative feedback to endgame they've received since day 1 of Mists Of Pandaria.

    Man, two hour plus queue on my server tonight, and the new area is completely unplayable due to massive lag and literally every mob on the island being dead or tapped simultaneously at all times, thanks to pretty much every level 90 on the server rolling around there.



    Who said WoW was dying? :p

    @Aretak

    Is there a new expansion out?

    @elephantjuice Not a new expansion, just a new (and last major) patch for MoP, which added the final raid (Siege of Orgrimmar) and a new max level zone.

    I've given up for the night. It's impossible to get anything done there right now.

    I haven't been able to touch the new island yet. Realm merges can fuck off.

    The worst thing about the game is the other players (due to the bullshit architecture). Having more of them _does not make the game more fun__.

    It's not 2004 anymore.

    Visit a dead server and see if you still agree with that opinion.

    Crap AH. Difficult to recruit new raiders. No real organised pvp. Poor general quality of players if you aren't the no 1 raiding guild. List does go on tbh.

    Although rares are usually easily farmable and gathering profs are good.

    However, having servers with a massive player count (outland/kazzak) does not sound like fun.

    Anyone got a Scroll of Res for an idiot who wants to see what new WoW is like, probably moan a lot, and then get addicted again?

    :(

    I only recently signed back up to this to check out this MoP business. Not really impressed so far tbh, I remember you guys being quite positive about it when it first released. Samey quests and uninspiring zones.

    Questing always has and always will be shit. I think the MoP zones are pretty good though. Krasarang and Townlong are a bit boring, but Valley of the Four Winds, Jade Forest, Dread Wastes and Kun-Lai are all amazeballs. The Vale was nice too before they wrecked it in the last patch.

    It's really the amount of stuff there is to do at 90 that's great though. There was literally nothing except raiding and dailies in Cata, but they've done a good job of providing content for those who aren't interested in either in MoP.

    While there are certainly more things to do in MoP, the content itself is (in my opinion) rubbish.

    Only just over a month until Blizzcon; they are likely to announce the next expansion there. Hopefully no pandas in sight.

    So after my lukewarm first impressions, I have to say I quite like the endgame setup. The PvP is reasonably fun (now they've just dished out massive resilience to everyone) and although the LFR system is full of mongs, it works quite well for a casual noob like me if i want a quick blast. Can be raiding in less than 5 minutes, cant fault that.

    I find all the panda stuff quite pleasant as well.

    Saying that I did just bot my way to 90 after doing the first few quests and being bored out my skull.

    I'm starting to really hate the server that I'm on (Draenor). The lag from around 6pm-1am is unbelievable, and that's once you've gotten in via the 90-minute queue. Even something as simple as listing things on the AH is a pain in the ass, as it takes ten seconds to list the item after hitting the button. Massive lag spikes in raids and dungeons too.

    And it's only about the 6th most-populated EU realm. The top few must be unplayable at peak times.

    Joys of playing on busy realms. :p

    There is an addon out, OQueue, that if you use that can sign up and join any raids quite fast. These include for world bosses, normal raids, the new flexible raids, rated bg`s etc.

    Makes the entire experience a nicer thing as its only players who ,usually, can play a bit who go to the effort of doing it.

    @Aretak

    I play on Silvermoon, I don't know exactly where it ranks but I know it's certainly up there, and I have the same problem. Queues into the thousands at peak times so it's a case of log on before peak if possible and stay logged in. Also laggy.

    I guess it's the tradeoff for this MMO - more people/busy AH but laggy or a lag free, empty/low pop realm.

    Ugh, haven't played this since 2009 but just ordered Cataclysm + MoP. Not sure it's the best of ideas but I really want to see what's changed since WotLK.

    Does anybody still play and is part of a fairly casual/social guild?

    You'll likely be invited to 20 different social guilds within the first five minutes of logging back in anyway. They've changed a lot since you last played. These days you get perks for being in one, they have their own reputation to gain, there's a guild shop, guild achievements and the guild itself has a level. One of the perks also deposits a percentage of any money a guild member earns from looting things into the guild bank, so every guild is happy to have loads of socials for the free gold.

    Hope you didn't pay much for Cata btw. It's included free now for all accounts, so you'll own it anyway when you log back in.

    Oh right, have you got a link re Cata being free? It's just I was on the blizz website and didn't see any mention of it being free but happy to be proven wrong. It would certainly explain why it's only 1.30 on Amazon.

    Here you go

    And yeah, I guess sellers are trying to dump their inventory. Still, it's only 1.30 and you can use the disc as a coaster.

    Thanks a lot. Managed to cancel my order so just a tenner for MoP. The question is what to do with 1.30 now.

    Re the guild stuff, interesting, things certainly have changed. I was really hoping that somebody could vouch first hand for a decent guild, as I'll be starting from scratch, so no server restriction. Just after some bants for the long journey all the way up to 90.
