Better than Cata, but worse than first 3 game editions

Summary: If you are new to the game I suggest a RP or PVE realm. You wont get ganked unless you intentionally flag yourself or attack a horde guard etc. (* You can get an instant PVP to PVE Cool Down by taking a flight point anywhere..normally you have to wait 5 minutes for the CD.
Pros: New area to explore and panda race to try out. New items introduced to the game with neat abilities. Runs ok on old Pentium 4 2.8Ghz HT with GeForce 7800GT AGP video card. ( Although game warns that the GPU is out of date ) *Note you will have better performance on a newer computer with good CPU ...
Cons: Cons far outweigh the pros. I have been with WoW since Classic WoW aka Vanilla in 2005. The game was great until Cata, which caused me to take a 9 month leave from the game. I came back because some friends lured me back. I bought this expansion and got bored with it after about 2 weeks. Timeless...
Summary: While gfx is an important part of any game... Game play remains a much more important one. There are many games that are more pretty to look at than WoW. They might even have realistic bouncing things with long legs and wavy grass with shiny water. Game play is what keeps players subbed and playing.
Pros: They added the ability to transmog armor (make t16 look like t4 or whatever green/heroic/epic gear you want in the same class cloth-to-cloth etc) Still tons of things to do. At first I thought they dumbed the game too much with class remod v3. However, there are more viable builds than wotlk and ...
Cons: Fragmented community due to CRZ and most of the current players mostly hate CRZ (cross realm zones) graphics are a bit outdated Can be problematic finding a good server. (plenty of kids willing to flame you for not using proper grammar, walking funny, or any other silly nonsense.)
Summary: Played the game since I was 13, I am almost 20 now. 5 days of play, got temp banned last warning : for hacking.. " I don't hack, Re did my OS , and continued to play* Thought maybe a random virus hit me or something. played for a few months.. pc died out.. stopped playing for 3 months..
Pros: Decent beginners Story line.
Cons: Story line took too long, the weapons were low dps. Economy in this expansion is horrible. End Game gear still makes you look like Football players. "with them Giant shoulders". Factions are not as helpful anymore, Not many players talk.
Summary: Blizzard does a good job keeping this as bug free as possible. They have made a ton of money from WOW so I hope they don't just try to refine WOW but instead release a whole new game built on a much newer more aesthetically pleasing graphics engine.
Pros: I've been playing WOW off and on for a long time now. I take a few months off every now and then but always come back. Its true that the graphics engine is aging and this specific expansion does'nt add a whole lot for the hard core WOW entusiasts but this is still the best MMO on the market in my...
Cons: Aging graphics, monthly charge should be reduced, install is stupid large considering the graphics.
Cons: Blizzard has brought the World of Warcraft to a new low. Although I started playing WoW pre-BC, the game is no longer worthwhile. They have no way to customize toons, there is no reason to go for achievements on more than your main, as once one toon has it, they all do. This game is ideal for pre...
Summary: I get the feeling they were trying to appeal more to new players and casuals. That's all well and good, but in the process they forgot about an entire demographic in serious players. Come on, Blizzard. Alienating loyal players is just stupid.
Pros: Monks, scenery, adds an entirely new aspect with pet battles (even if they're lame)
Cons: Pandas are overpowered for leveling, all the classic classes were nerfed into oblivion, new talent system doesn't even feel like WoW, end game content isn't as fun as previous expansions
Summary: Stopped playing till Blizzard pulls their head out of sand. They truly think that they did a favor for gamers to nerf certain things. Ill play MUD games before I play pandas again.
Pros: Game play controls still the same
Cons: Nerfing runs rampant here in this version. Was under the impression that certain races/classes would get enhanced( ie.. Druids get better spells, Mages get the power they deserve for being squishy)well what I heard/read was wrong. They nerfed Druids, Warriors, Tauren, Rogues, and mages to a point...
