Wow that was underwhelming !
Holy hell what a boring cinematic. How did WoW get to this point where an expansion featuring dragons focuses 4 minutes of expertly crafted animation on a random stoneboi repairing an aqueduct? Wasn't 10,000 years ago right around the time when Illidan was fighting demons and getting imprisoned and doing interesting things? This is now our focus in the world of warcraft?I don't want to ^&*! on people because I'm sure there were talented folk who put a lot of time and effort into making this, but jeeze... What a terrible waste. What am I supposed to care about or be interested in? What is exciting here?
Kind've a lackluster cinematic. No chills... no excitement... nothin :(
I was expecting Sire Denathrius ascending Oribos to Pelagos/Arbiter, fight with him, take the Crown of Wills, tear it in half, causing the sky above the Shadowlands to tear open, which reveals another plane of existence - where everyone is Sylvanas.
This...doesn't feel like Wow at all
Great as usual with Blizzard's cinematics, but the change of style is clear, imho, looks more like Asian MMO's. Lack of fighting action probably adds to it.Interesting lorewise, though.
"Stonebro is the most well written character in these recent expansions"
Felt underwhelming for me too. Dragons supposedly became mortal when we defeated Deathwing.When you retcon major lore facts every addon you destroy the world that has been created.I don't feel strongly about Dragons at all, no connection to anything in the world.I'm still of the opinion that there should have been a Warcraft 4 to write the story for further expansions.
Sooo Mist of Pandaria 2.0? I mean how unoriginal... "10,000 years ago the dragon isles where cloaked in mist" .... "10,000 years ago pandaria was cloaked in mist". Come on give me a break. Theres hardly ANYTHING that isnt being re-used in this xpack
Aqueducts?Looks like we are getting the Roman theme this expansion.
That was so underwhelming.
To post a non negative comment: I really liked the cinematic and imo because its so vague it reaches out to the classic players having been there since the mid 2000s, who want something unknown coming and want to explore it, kind of gives a feeling as back then. And yeah, this is coming from someone, who mainly wrote negative comments during the current addon. The story narrative was really bad and I hope it wont become another disaster. :)
