I've been starting over, and am not a fan of what they did with some of the low level zones. Darkshore is completely fucked up. It's hard to find your way around. Having new quests to do isn't a bad thing, but you would think they would have left at least a few places where you could do your quests without constantly falling into cracks.
To be honest, Darkshore was fucked up before they destroyed the landscape. That was a rough starting zone. That quest to go get the stuff out of the cave full of naga? Ugh. No.
But then, I've never really liked most of the Alliance options for starter zones compared to Horde. Darkshore was a rough ride, Westfall was full of find-this-thing quests that never dropped in a reasonable amount of time, and the dwarf/gnome area was full of dwarves and gnomes! Terrible. Silverpine and the Belf areas just ran more smoothly. (The Barrens, on the other hand, can also go to hell.)
Finally gotten used to how to play an assassination rogue and have moved from learn-this-spec to refine-this-spec mode. Nice to be competitive as dps again after feeling like I wasn't contributing at all on the first few runs.
Oh, yeah, and the Uldum cinematics are a nice idea and I can appreciate Blizz trying to change things up, but they really need an option to skip those things for every cinematic, and to have skipping it still complete the quest (sometimes you HAD to watch it or it wouldn't give quest credit). Sure it's cute and fun the first time around, but the second time you do Uldum? The third time? The fourth? No thanks; I've seen this joke already and it was only lukewarm the first time.
