I'm definitely hoping WotLK will return World of Warcraft to a more "High Fantasy" setting. I'm sure I'm not alone when I express my disappointment at getting epic hammers that look like Rock Candy tied to a stick, or bright purple swords. Despite the fact that WoW has always played with technology (Gnomes and Goblins are both more advanced in robotics than we are), that sort of fit the whimsical feel of WoW's game world.The Draenei, crystal gear, Eco-spheres, and Spaceships all feel very out of place, both visually and lore-wise. Thus, I'm very happy to see WotLK looks to return us to a more traditional high fantasy.

I completely agree with you. Spaceships, aliens, futureistic stuff needs to stay away from dragons, yetties, and goblins.Save it for World Of Starcraft

i disagree. it shows how their "world" is evolving much the way ours is but thiers is so much faster. maybe we will have rocket cars for mounts in WotLK.

I agree with Retro. The guns always bugged me a bit. I always strove to use Bows unless I found a gun that was just too good to pass up. I really hate the gear in Outlands though. I didn't want to trade off my cool looking medieval armor for what I like to call "spaceship parts". Me and most of my friends on WoW share this sentiment.People always seem to talk about there being too much medieval fantasy RPG's out there, but there's a reason for it; people like it that way.
