Nice read, I agree with you about 4e it is to WoW-y, I had a lot of fun with 3.5e and personally wish they would have stuck with it.

Not to bring "that" argument over here, but I really hate this comparison. If you don't like 4e, that's fine, but the comparison of WoW to D&D 4e is . . . well, it's just silly.

@HalI would say it's a fairly apt comparison, but I think it improves the structure of D&D. I like 4th edition; I like that everyone gets their class-based spells/abilities, and each one has a sense of timing to it.

I agree that 4e streamlines the classes, however I don't really like it. Streamlining is good, but too much homogenization isn't. 4e is very much like an MMO on paper. I play those on me imputer, so I don't need to on Sunday in my dining room.Don't get me wrong, 3.5e has its issues, too many rules for things that don't need separate rules for one thing, but it's more D&D feeling than 4e is. To me at least.

Heh, I remember how "4e = WoW" turned the WotC forums to vitriolic internet trench warfare back when 4e was just coming out. This brings back memories.For my part, as a WoWplayer, the comparison was always solid. That's just the nature of the 4e beast. Heh, I remember describing 4e to my playing group right after receiving the books, and the resounding response I got was "oh, like in WoW?". That's not necessarily negative (and can certainly be taken positively in a few ways), but there's honestly no use in denying the comparison.
