World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor
Dont Waste Your Money
This could have been another good expansion by Blizzard, but they seem to have forgotten how to release finished products. This game is not worth the 50$ price tag + the additional 15$ monthly.
If you do purchase this game be prepared for endless disconnects and lag. I tried to give this game a shot. I even suffered through these disconnects for 7 levels, making it all the way to 97. But then I realized I was only putting myself through that torment only because I spent so much money. I was trying to justify the amount wasted. It's just not worth it... Simple as that.
So hopefully someone will read this review and save themselves some time and money. Also, just to clarify... I attempted several of the "fixes" found on Blizzard's Forums to no avail. I really did want to play this game. So if anything, at least wait until they drop the price of the game. Until then spend your money on something else. This game is unplayable in its current state.
Old school veteran return
It's been almost 4 year break since i last played WoW. Over this time i tried new MMORPGS and eventually neither suited my liking as much as WoW. I tried Wildstar, Rift, SWTOR, TESO and GW2. These were famous titles, each had innovations, but lacked certain things WoW did well. To give few examples: Wild star had good pvp, but overall very unwelcome, leveling was bad, story was bad. Rift had a huge mess with talents and specs. SWTOR was just not appealing enough, lacking content and features. TESO had good leveling and lore, but lack of PvP killed it for me. GW2 was overall cool, but itemization is bad, lack of holy trinity killed PVE completely. So now with new Xpack i decided to return to WoW, and like never before i feel right at home.
Waiting for the Deluxe Box Set
Been playing WoW since Oct 6 of 2006. I unfortunately wasn't super into it when TBC was released, but starting with Wrath, I have every boxed collector's edition. If you are not interested in the extras from the physical boxed CE, you would probably be better off just getting the digital DL.
Best Expansion Since BC HANDS DOWN!
This is the best WoW expansion since BC HANDS DOWN. Everything after wasn't that great, FL, and DS were fun but when it comes to the lore, and zone content, this expansion BLOWS THEM AWAY. I'm taking my time as I'm only just about level 93. I just love the music of Frostfire Ridge, and it's just AWESOME to see people actually in the zones again doing stuff playing having fun.
Other negative reviewers are reviewing improperly
This expansion to WoW may not be the best or flawless because it's always a work in progress but the review stating to not buy it because of que times and disconnects from the game and lag are not intelligently reviewing. The issues they are coming up with are from the fact that so many people pre-ordered and bought it the day of and everyone kept trying to connect to every single server they possibly could to just play it, which happens with every big release. Not to mention that Blizzard was probably getting DDoS'd too. All in all it is my favorite of the WoW expansions, it adds a good amount that I personally enjoy and I think any WoW fan would enjoy too.
Buy Digital if you want the lvl 90 upgrade now!
I was in gamestop the other day and your better off buying 2 or 4 of the new blizzard $20 store cards (depending on what version of the wow expansion u want) you wont get anything if u pre order at gamestop just buy the expansion from the blizz store to become lvl 90 now!
Returning WoW Vet.
Well after leaving WoW after Cata came out i decided after playing Hearthstone to give WoW another chance. I was in Awe of the new changes i seen and felt like i returned to an almost new game. graphics looking better then i remembered, nice changes to skills, more to do, only thing that gave me a scare was the inflation that hit the markets. seeing i was just returning figured i needed better gear and seen that gear pricing jumped real high but fortune smiled with the new rewards set up to where you can set loot to the gear type you need. doesn't make it 100% but does seem better drop rates on what i needed for my classes. So all in all this return has been a great thing. Hope to see more vets returning soon.
New to WOW
I just started playing and have read a lot about this game. I do not mind the grinding and it seems funny that I can pay to be level 90. Seems to be the way games are going now a days. You should have to have an asterisk next to your character's name so people know you paid to play.
they are not prepared
I was briefly in the game and the lag was tremendous making it unplayable. I was disconnected and tried to relog: I was put in a queue of with over 5000 (yes 5000) and the estimated wait time is over 600 minutes (yes 600). So i would like to say its a great game but its unplayable so I cant tell you.
They really improved the game so much. The graphics are waaaay better and the quests are amazing. The game had a few bumps at first but its all fixed. Its worth the money.
