I kinda hate the streamlining, railroading design Wow has fallen into. I know most people prefer it but to me it just feels like every patch and expansion takes Wow a little further away from the original game I loved.

You're not alone. I really think Blizzard needs to stop and think about it a little more. They don't necessarily HAVE to streamline everything. Dungeons, quests, and all that - it's too much. If they keep doing it any more, they'll take the game right out of our hands and play it themselves.I do think they're trying to be careful about that though. I think they recognized that was a bit of a problem in Cataclysm because people were able to burn through these zones so fast - and that's why we're getting new zones that are MUCH larger - and seem to offer some more flexibility in questing choices. Hopefully!

I like the idea in Cataclysm of telling a story through the quests in the zone. It's annoying, though, in that almost every quest in zone is tied to that story. There should be some stand-alone quests, or short chains, that don't require you to do twenty or thirty main story quests to unlock the questgivers.Especially egregious in examples like Thousand Needles, where you head to the manticore roost looking for information on Magatha Grimtotem. When you arrive, the guy you ask says he knows nothing, but help help there's a problem. You fix the problem, and suddenly he just happens to know where to go for the next step in the main story. You can't just show up and be asked to help, either. No, they only want the help of people who have important, world destroying quests to delay.
