I'm the complete opposite. I was hugely disappointed by the Worgen starting area, primarily because of the phasing, which caused multiple problems. For one, you can't leave the island until you've done most of the quests, and two, as you would progress through the area, previous camps would become unavailable and a lot of the newer camps didn't have mailboxes, which was very annoying when trying to retrieve heirlooms/gold/bags, etc. Also, as you phased through the area it would automatically change your hearthstone location without telling you, and when you get toward the end of the area, there is a NE NPC on a boat who, when you talk to him, ports you to Darnassus with no warning and absolutely no way of getting back to Gilneas. And because so many of the quests involved vehicles and NPCs, a lot of them were bugged early on. I've never been a big fan of phasing to begin with, but to make an entire starting area phased is just bad design in my opinion. I don't understand why blizz thought it was ok to make the worgen/goblin starting areas work so completely different than every other starting area in the game.
