        I was, but remembered that the things which bother me the most: how my classes play and the story, haven't been improved at all.

          Is it wrong that the story is part of why I’m looking forward to WoW:Classic?

          The story and world have evolved quite dramatically over the last several years, and unless you were able to dedicate hours and hours during each patch and expansion, there are story elements that you’re never going to experience in context.

          I hate how they absolutely don't seem to get what makes an rpg story/lore good. Mindlessly doing the same 3 quest types for 20 hours without any kind of even the mildest challenge whatsoever, for the reward of viewing a few cutscenes written for 13 year olds, isn't it.
          I also hate how the classes are gutted and boring now.
          Also the repeated regrinding for heart of azeroth what in the fuck was that blizz? I heard at least that's gone now and the essences and new gear are much better.
          I don't want to play classic and I wish they made the current version actually worth playing.

      Patch 8.2 is a very good patch, and enjoyable to play ... but it drives home just how much the World of Warcraft is a selection of disconnected levels. The tower of content Blizzard has built is desperately uneven, and there are few fixes that won’t require large-scale solutions. For more WoW guide:
