The thing I've noticed about wow stories is that they can be pretty damn good on their own, but when you start putting them together to get the overall picture, stuff falls apart.It's a situation of too many cooks in too many ktichens, or the comic book syndrome- characters are wildly different depending on who their author is or what sort of story you're trying to tell. I'm starting to think it's unavoidable in a behemoth like warcraft. This is especially evident in the way the Lich King was handled in Wrath, as well as some of the faction leaders in the current Cataclysm storylines.Things that have been serious blows to my enthusiasm for wow stories:Lich King death cinematic and generally everything about the scourge's behaviorAlexstrasza fights Deathwing cutscene.As a side note, they've done an excellent job with many of the 1-60 questing zones in cataclysm. I "accidentally an undead to 60" just because I wanted to see what would happen next in the EK horde storyline. The new versions of Silverpine, Hillsbrad and both Plaguelands were some of my favorite experiences in wow. In those situations, it really felt like the story was designed first, and then, afterwards, experience point values were assigned to quests. I like that.
