This will probably get downrated, but I'm really not feeling it for this expansion.I'm not keen on Pandas, there is a "too silly" line and imo the pandas cross it.Monk seems ok for those that want to play them, but we really don't need a new class.Pet battling? I had a gameboy, I had pokemon.This will be the first expansion I don't buy at/before launch for immediate as soon as I can, and frankly I'm not sure I will get it at all. Unless things change it really doesn't look like WoW is for me any more. That's not to say WoW is suddenly bad, I love the game as it is now, and I've loved it from 2006 when I started playing. I don't know why, but I'm really not excited for WoW 5.0 none of the changes add something that will make the game better for me.The question for me is do I play GW2, Starwars or just swear off MMOs alltogether?

I feel the same way. Maybe I'm just growing jaded after having played so long...the talents do look interesting, but honestly nothing else really grabs me.

No offense, but...talking pandas are too silly, and talking cows aren't?

I am in agreement. New talent system sounds intruiging but I could take or leave anything else. To be honest if Im excited about anything, its now being able to unsub without FOMO.Have played WoW since beta and have enjoyed every single minute of it, this seems like a good time to let go and move on though.

To be honest, I find myself agreeing with everyone in this thread. I've been thinking about quitting WoW for a while, and even though the new stuff for MoP looks very cool, it also just kind of seems like more of the same. A year ago, either Pandaren or monks would have been enough to keep me waiting for the expansion with great anticipation, but now, even when we get both, most of my reactions yesterday were just "Hey, that's pretty cool."Like others have said, it's not that there's something wrong or bad with WoW. I wouldn't have put so much time into the game if I wasn't having fun. ^_^ But I'm not having the fun I used to have, so it's likely time to leave for a while.

To all you guys, I say it's time you did quit, and I understand your thoughts, even if I don't agree. I've only been playing since about mid Wrath, so there's still tons of things left for me to explore and experience. However, if the game's not fun for you anymore, then that's fair. I'm glad you are all being mature and thoughtful about your opinions, rather than the whining I've seen a lot of recently. It'll be sad to see old timers like yourself go, but there's no point staying if emotionally you've moved on./salute

Dan, no, talking cows aren't to many of us, because they are based on minotaurs, which were a bit more than "talking cows". A lot of people go "We had talking cows, dogs and spacegoats, so whats the deal?"Tauren - MinotaursWorgen - Werewolves...they dont exactly look like cute talking beagles, do they?Draenei - The "spacegoat" name is a player-invention. They, to me, are a combination of different things, but I never thought of them as "goat-related". Look up satyrs in any other place than wowwiki

Talking cows aren't silly because they're fearsome minotaurs. Talking pandas are silly because... they're cute little things that are typically adored by little kids. I'm not calling it childish to like them, they're just usually associated with children when they're not associated with China. Talking bulls and space goats... less so.

You're not getting downrated because you expressed your feelings about the expansion rationally and presented them as your own opinion without being insulting. And I thank you for it.I'm personally thrilled about the expansion, but I can see how some people would find it unappealing. I wish you well where ever you end up.
