Maybe it's just because I have an Operative in ToR and a Rogue main-alt in WoW that I feel the spy-mission similarity... but, to get to the pointThe rogue legendary quest in WoW plays a lot like the class quest in ToR. It's special. It makes my character fell differnet and special. The ToR quest is full of delicious intreague, plot twists, double crossing, decent voice-overs, and lore. The same thing happens in the rogue legendary quests. I get pulled into the story and the character feels special. I love that. And to top it off you're meant to use specific class abilties to get past a tough phase.I want more of that in WoW. Does anyone else find that lore (and some of the fun of questing by proxy) in wow has been relegated to the marketing department? We only get lil snippets and glances of the reasons behind what characters do in order to get you to buy the next Knakk or Golden novel. (i.e. Why is Archibishop Benedictus suddenly trying to kill me?) I feel it takes away from the game when I have to buy a book to fill in major plot holes for a role playing game that I pay for on subscription. After viewing the Lore pannel discussion in on the Blizzcon feed this year I found myself disenchanted with the group their processes. They make plots to serve one zone and then they're done with them. They don't plan to use them after or bring them up again and tie them into the story further down the line. It came up time-after-time-after time in the pannel. This lore figure or thats: space-goats, werewolves, AWOL trade princes, missing princesses, etc...
