@Professor - you are probably right about Blizzard just not having the foresight and time to balance out the Worgen experience with the Goblin experience, but this:"Then you would have the issue of taking away the Forsaken 12-20 experience. To keep both Forsaken and Worgen storyline they would have to do something so different and would require such a large amount of work that other parts of the game would have suffered. "Having done both the Forsaken and Worgen experience, I could easily tell you HOW to include the Worgen in the later part of the story and I think it could have been easily incorporated, given a little time. For the Forsaken, they phased in and included a small hub and a few quests for the Forsaken within Gilneas itself. Elsewhere, we should have gotten much the same thing for the Worgen (the Blackwald, perhaps) with a few "invasion quests" of our own into Silverpine Forest (perhaps before we were forced to retreat to Darnassus). This way we would have been able to accompany Crowley while he was making alliances with Ivar among others and seen the other half of the whole story.In fact, it would only be a few more quests after the starting zone experience and should have been included. Within Darnassus/Teldrassil I would have liked to see a few Worgen quests there as well that was completely removed from the Night Elf starting experience. An expansion of the area wouldn't have hurt - after all it is a big tree! Just as we got Rut'theran Village at the base of the tree, we could have had another new spot elsewhere where the Worgen would become more familiar with where they were - or perhaps a new area north of the Howling Bark.Within Darkshore they SHOULD have had more unique Worgen "experiences" just as the Goblins did in Azshara. Probably shouldn't have had so much of the Cataclysm effect as we should just have had the worgen getting more familiar with the area, and potentially rejuvenating what used to be a very boring zone into something more unique. There's so much Blizzard could have done in this retrospect for the Worgen race it is pretty frustrating. Yes, they might not have had the foresight or time, but they should have had more of a plan all along.
