I think they're simply testing out a new approach (and what better a place to get a huge amount of testing done than a starting zone for a new race). In all of the other starting zones, and in a good 60-70% of all questing you do anywhere, you're RandomOrc3, a "nobody" doing the grunt work from zone to zone. Sure there are plenty of "you're the hero" quests, but I'd say the majority are pretty standard and consist of things "anyone" could do.This works perfectly fine for some people, and doesn't for others.That being said, I think Blizz is ultimately just striking for a good balance, and in the end not everyone is going to satisfied. I think the new use of phasing has allowed the "personally epic" questlines to really shine, and I think they're going to push it as far as they think its reasonable to go. And in the end, not everyone will be happy with it, but that's the nature of the beast.
