At least they are using the BH model where you get a random selection of quests each day. Should reign in the tedium at least a bit of having to do the dailies for 30+ days to complete the unlocks.

I liked Vash'jr more than Hyjal.

But for my former BS that would be the only real reason to go there. I'll be doing it on my hunter already, I don't need to see that content from another toon's perspective.

It's still just more daily quests. Another round of minigames that teach you nothing about how to play the game at a high level and the only risk of death is if you afk to go get a beer, use the bathroom, watch a 30 minute TV show and then you might be dead if you're a clothie.

I did the tournament for titles and money, but honestly the daily formula got old for me on the isle of QQ. At least those quests were somewhat challenging at times.

I'd like it more if I could do a week's worth of quests in 2 or 3 days. Never bothered getting the rep with BH, only had time for those dailies 1 or 2 days a week.

You also only have to do about half (maybe 2/3rds) of Hyjal to recover the Regrowth area where the entracne is.

There are several bosses you have to defeat that have gimmicks you must do to be victorious/gain achievements, like avoiding the fire.

That would be refreshing, not specifically dying during questing, but a reason to pay attention perhaps.

Well, I for one am more than looking forward to invading an elemental plane for reasons of conquest moreso than preventing the world from inevitably imploding. I'm also going to enjoy the new pets (achievement and grind-related), Mylune's Call, the fiery hippogryph, and other flavor items. I'll also be able to help a friend of mine gear up with those BS patterns. He's not a very good player, and altoholism and heroic grinding may be all he's able to accomplish in the end, so those weapons will be a major blessing for him until the next tier of 5-mans comes out. So, in my opinion, new content is good content, and I'll save all the groaning for next month when im tired of doing everything.

As repgrinds to unlock a pattern to make money with or a mount go, this one is a completely trivial one. No idea why you feel the need to bitch about it.

I am astounded by the amount of people complaining about having to go back to finish a lvl 80 questing area and the amount of people who complained that there wasn't enough content to people who couldn't/didn't want to raid.

Hilarious.

Are these the same people?

Are they talking about finishing the content for the first time, or finishing it for the Nth time on an Nth alt?

As Flex said you don't even have to finish the entire zone.

Seriously you're going to bitch about spending what is literally 2 hours blowing through 60-80 quests to unlock it? Have fun then.
