They're probably going to add an endgame connection there or something. I agree, they need to consider the whole game for upgrades, not just the "NEW FRESH EXCITING" parts.It's criminal how there are so many promising quests in the game that start so interestingly and then just dead-end into nowhere. The Scythe of Elune is a major pet peeve of mine. It's a really cool quest that starts in Darkshire and you follow it around for a while and then... nothing.Supposedly the Scythe of Elune currently rests somewhere in Karazan, but it doesn't drop anywhere there.Blizzard needs to have a larger lore department, someone to shepherd special storyline quests from a low-level beginning to a satisfying endgame conclusion. Apparently a lot of promising material is simply dead ending. It happens over and over in the game, great start, you follow it around for a while, but once you leave the zone, blizzard changes writers and you never see it again.Blizzard needs to change their quest staffing structure so that excellent lore and story quests can continue beyond the zone that they begin in. I suspect the problem occurs because quest writers were given authority over ONLY their starting zone and didn't have the authority to influence other zone's quest writers to follow up on early quest chains.This would explain a lot of the player's pet peeves about the lore and resolution of favorite quest chains. Blizzard needs to go back and follow up on these!!!This is why I say that Blizzard still has massive blinders on that makes them VULNERABLE TO COMPETITION. Another company could come along, deliver WoW-like depth, but actually FOLLOW UP AND PAY OFF early quest chains, and deliver a much more satisfying experience.
