Oh! I feel it. I feel the cosmos...also what Blizzard is getting at. So many people have criticized their plan for this expansion, but I think I figured it out.They've already devoted so many man-hours this expansion to updating/awesome-ing obsolete or vestigial portions of the game, they decided to go full out and really give quality of life improvements 110%. Raiders might be ticked, but they'll be back in 5.0 if they even leave, and everyone else will have a better game for it.This is a really smart long-term move by Blizz, and the admitted dip in players will probably pay for itself in the coming years.

It's definitely felt like an "infrastructure" expansion, before they launch into something (hopefully) groundbreaking. I've had similar thoughts to yours, you're not alone.

I've definitely noticed a quality of life improvement. Especially when I do dungeons at a relaxed pace. Even the new tanking change falls under this, letting amateur and undergeared tanks do their job more easily, without feeling hassled. Which of course is quality of life improvement for everyone else who's waiting in queues. With in mind, I eagerly await the next expansion. The groundwork that blizzard has laid in this one should make the next even better.
