Burning Crusade was the best upgrade that I've played. That was when gold was gold, you have to work for it. Now, veryone can get gold without putting in efforts. I missed the time when I can't find Fargo Deep or waiting forever to get my first mount. I used to travel by foot from Iron Forge to Wetland at lvl 17. First thing I did when I get to Wetland was to get the FP..LOL!! I was so happy when I got my first ride, no more stinkin running on foot.
Does anyone have a scroll of resurrection that they can send me?

Commendations are pretty awesome. I must agree on that.

I'm done with the rep grind and I love the new commendations that you can buy now in order to expedite the process on your alts - should make it easier for anyone who wants a 2nd or 3rd raiding toon to jump into action.

If you like World of Warcraft, buy this expansion pack. The battle chest is cheap right now, and this plus Cata will give you loads of content for you buck. Overall the entire WoW pack is less than $60 at this point, providing people with hundreds of hours worth of content for just $15 a month, if you're paying for individual months.
If you're in support of f2p mmos, that's great, but the only decent one out right now is Guild Wars 2, and that's because its developers were smart enough to make it f2p from launch. You either make it f2p from launch or don't make it f2p at all. WoW is not set up to be played using the f2p model, and Blizzard doesn't need to transform it into a f2p game in order to make money.

For everyone who is saying it's a requirement to do dailies: It's not. It's faster to earn valor that way, yes, but it's not required. You can still earn valor by doing heroics, scenarios, and raiding. Slower, but again, not required.
As for LFR/LFD and easily gearing up: They wanted to allow everyone to see the content, dungeons, and raids. Not just a select few. Back in Wrath and before that, there were many people who didn't raid because it just wasn't possible for them to. This now appeases both the hard core and casual crowd, where they both get to see content.

I agree with the requiring to do dailies.. boring, boring!
Honestly... "this" many years later, they are still able to charge $15/month (not including multi-month paying discounts)? I wish they dropped the standard monthly to $10 or even as low as $5.. but I guess they don't have to because they haven't done it yet (if ever?). Of course, F2P would be best, but doubt that would ever happen.

Mixed bag here, IMO. There's some positives, some negatives. The overwhelming need to do dailies I think is a big negative, but I did like the new zones. That said, I quit playing very early on. That's a relative statement - 3 level 90s, raid experience, exalted with most factions. This is the least amount of time I've invested into a WoW xpac by FAR.
Good price, mediocre product. It's been out a while, so if you don't have it yet, you're likely a returning player. This content isn't worth returning to, if you ask me. If you've quit, your life is probably better. Don't get sucked back in by this!

|ParticleJG||Much like everyone said, the game is too easy and making dailies a requirement to get gear from Valor is stupid. Many classes are broken and won't be fixed until next expansion. Plus as many stated it does not take a lot to be good and many numbers are based on gear, not skill. And I haven't even started on the loot system yet .........|

Warning: Opinion ahead
Personally, I find that the game has changed so much, and in a good way. I no longer am in college and I no longer can devote an additional 30+ hours a week to a game like I could before. They've made changes so that a "hard core" player can still raid and play decently hard core, all the while also appeased the "casual" gamer group. They've added additional things to do in game, which again, caters to different groups. There's pokebattles, scenarios, LFR/LFD, quests can actually be pretty refreshing and fun. Check points when doing quests (which honestly helps it not be so daunting) - achievements, exploration things (lost artifacts etc), and Challenge Mode.
Of course there are things that aren't as good as well, like what they've done to the talent tree. But, supposedly, that's supposed to even the playing ground.
They've brought the factions together closer, so that on a PVP server, there will be more world PVP than there was in past xpacs.
The xpac was just released in Sept 2012, however, they're coming out with new additional content already. They will keep losing subscribers, but that's to be expected with any aging game, however, I'd say it's far from dead.
