The removal of class quests kind of sucks, but your comment is a huge leap in logic. There is still a vast amount of customisation; choosing your class, talents, glyphs, and professions to name just a few. And then there is prioritizing gear/gems/enchantments/reforging for your play style.The way you talk makes it sound like they just went and made all classes exactly the same, and that you could personally throw this entire game together in about a half an hour. Not liking something is fine. Constructive criticism is great. Poorly thought out negativity helps no one.

Meh. Meant to reply to Rebel.

the things you mention are gameplay mechanics, they add very very little to the actual story, especially if the framework around them is continually broken down. personally, i picked up this game because of it's rich lore and immersive environment, yet changes like these keep moving the game away from all that, which is pity, i read these wonderful novels, and i wish, i'd see some of that richness in the game again, and that it would be more then just another loot-hunt, or grind, in fact, it's starting to feel more and more like a first person shooter game, in terms of atmosphere. how are people supposed to bond with their class of choice, and learn more about what it means to be a priest or a warlock, or a paladin, and so on, if there is -nothing- in the game to edcuate them about that background?

I understand that point, and it is quite a fair one at that. Personally, I got in to the series because I am a huge warcraft fan (played since Orcs and Humans). I love the lore and it really DOES suck that the class quests are going away. Hell, I still have my benediction/anethima on my priest and I remember that quest line very fondly.My original comment was not to argue in favore of class quest removal. My comment was in reply to some one who was simply not providing constructive cirticism. Giving valid reasons WHY you don't want class quests removed is great. Simply saying "OMG Y BLIZZ RUNE EVRTHING?!" doesn't help at all.
