All of the arguments of which faction is more reprehensible aside, I think the biggest problem with the Southern Barrens' storyline is how aborted the storytelling is on the Alliance side. There's no lead-in, from what I saw; Duskwallow, which should logically be tied to it, is virtually unchanged since the Mudsprocket patch, all they seem to have added is the road and NPC's fighting each other over it, none of the quests reference it at all. It'd be great to have these cross-faction storylines if they were at least complete on both sides, but like the Worgen storyline, all the action seems to go down on the Horde side and all the Alliance gets are dangling plot-threads.

I agree. But perhaps their intent is to coerce people who READ quests into playing both sides?I dunno. Perhaps Blizzard intends the books to fill out the parts of the stories that it doesn't present to us in-game. And I'm nowhere near post-cataclysmic Loremaster on even one side. I'd earned the title pre-shattering, but still only on one side. And now it's a whole new world out there.
