Terrible spelling there.

@ZangoI think he was writing it phonetically.

I had to vote None because I feel this way too. There were too many "fun" announcements to just choose one.Even something like the Pet Battle System, which the naysayers are already bashing as "LOLOLPOKEMONOLOLOLLOL FAILLLL", which is billed as content for non-raiders and non-pvpers, has be excited as a raider. Right now in live, I generally don't log into the game outside of raids...there's nothing to do. But the PBS looks to have enough content in it to whet the appetite of many players who just want to chill for a bit and have some good old-fashioned fun. It doesn't seem to have the hectic pacing or the adrenaline rush of a heroic progress raid or a PvE scenario (I assume the scenarios will be tightly tuned, especially since they know what everyone's gear level will be), but that's the beauty of it. You get to chill for a bit and still have something to do.Combine that with all the other parts of the expansion (even the art style which is breathtaking), and it's really cruel to ask us to pick only one. :P

Pretty much this. Except for mage talent loltree :)

This is me.I can't choose because I like EVERYTHING. I mean, holy crap.Dude, they sold me on this yesterday...and then kept selling me. I think Blizzard might own my soul now. o.oI love the Pandas! I love where they live. The talent changes actually sound cool. I really like that each tier is a similar type talent that you pick depending on how you play or what you need. Being able to respec this talent in between bosses or whatever sounds awesome too. Mini-pet Pokemon? Why the hell not? I laughed when they announced it and then started plotting which ones I will train. XDThe Monk sounds badass. I love melee anything and I am chomping at the bit to try healing while bashing something in the face. I love the no auto attack idea. It sounds fun.The Scenarios sound fun too.What got me was everything they announced just sounded fun. I don't play to prove my skill; I play to relax and enjoy myself. Diablo III for free with a new sparklier sparkle pony was extra icing on the delicious Panda cake.

Ditto. Excited for ALL the things. :O

@Knob: EXACTLY. One of the biggest problems is that outside of raiding, there was never much else fun to do (grind rep, grind dailies, grind badges, farm mats, rinse repeat). RP only takes you so far; the achievements were sort of a step in the right direction. I love the Plants vs Zombies game they added in and the Joust daily just-for-the-pure-fun-of-it. Blizz is finally breaking the stranglehold that raiding has had on the game to better include the rest of its player base. Maybe they have taken a page from Pokemon -- so what? Pokemon has to be FUN; if it wasn't, folks wouldn't play it. And that is what gaming is about. FUN.
