I agree on Uldum and Twilight Highlands falling short.(FYI, I've leveled through cata zones on both factions)Uldum was too pop-culture Indiana Jones. It was just too much. They introduce a freaking awesome cat race, and it's upstaged by Harrison Failin' Ford. (Both Factions)Twilight Highlands was EPIC for the Horde. You ride in with your faction leader on a fleet of Zepplins. (Whether you like him or not, it's a great moment for the Horde.) Then he goes ape-shit and jumps off the Zep after you see Deathwing. This was great. I was hoping Garrosh would be char-broiled. THEN, you form a coup and enlist some cool orcs that hunt dragons, and watch as their town gets a great renovation. Fighting ensues. Dwarf attack!Twilight Highlands for the alliance was weird. You fly in on a rocket with an NPC in a badly written scripted event, then land in a town under attack. You fend yourself off, and eventually find yourself at a weird wedding and it gets tentacle-infested. End of quests.But where did Cataclysm really FAIL?The game play. I liked playing resto druids in WotLK. No more. (I still like healing, I'm just a priest now). They changed a LOT of class mechanics. The fun parts (Word of Glory to make solo'ing old places as Prot) were nerfed. The 'meh' parts (warlock soulshards) suddenly became super necessary. The bad parts (balance eclipse design, which I secretly love because I can cheat it to be OP) blizzard still can't figure out how to fix.Hopefully I can feel epic again. I still love WoW, I just don't get as excited to log on. It's more of the "I have an hour with nothing to do, time to do a BG on X alt."At least they succeeded in their attempt to get people to enjoy alts. I went from having one 80 in WotLK to SEVEN 85s in Cata. (And don't ask how many hunters I have twinked at random levels!)
