I do miss the class quests, the Hunter Bow Chain, the Paladin Charger, the Warlock Dreadsteed, etc. Those types of quests gave excellent flavor for the classes, were a lot of fun, and didn't have the total mess that legendaries bring to the table. Bring some new stuff like that in please.Take the legendary daggers, make them regular epics, take out the overinflated mat grind, and bam, decent rogue series in itself there and would have been far more reasonable.More chains like Quel'Delar would be awesome as well. I had an absolute blast doing that and totally wished there was more like that in game now.

I am with you 100% on this, and I don't think it gets brought up enough. Whenever people clamored on the forums for more class-specific quests, the usual blue response was along the lines of "we don't like devoting a lot of development time towards designing quests that only a portion of the population will get to see". Fair enough, I disagree with your reasoning but at least it's a valid point. But then they went through the trouble of designing these really interesting and convoluted quest lines for Dragonwrath and FotF, which not only are class-restricted but confined to an even smaller subset of those classes that are in raiding guilds. *Squint*. How does that make any sense?

I miss the profession quests. They made secondary professions feel like an important part of my character, because I had to prove my skills in the field. I didn't just level up my First Aid by making bandages, I saved the lives of wounded soldiers. The quests still exist, but the rewards (especially for "Triage") are unimpressive.On the same note, I think that crafting top-of-the-line gear should require more than a lucky recipe drop. The Black Anvil, and to a lesser extent, the Mana Loom implemented this well. I know Blizzard is trying to get rid of arbitrary limitations, and requiring crafters to work from a specific location certainly seems arbitrary. However, these restrictions also give a sense of involvement and progression, like you really had to earn your place as a top craftsman.
