I do feel like the allies got the short stick of the 80-85 zone quest storylines by far. But note that Blizzard did confess to saying that they really spread their team thin and taxed them. I have to believe that most of the Blizzard quest designers are at their heart Horde players (nothing wrong with that!), and I think that might have had an influence on the overall quality of storytelling as far as the Alliance are concerned in the later zones. It wasn't just the Wildhammer wedding, but the way the Horde came to the Twilight Highlands, which was epic with Garrosh fiercely leading the way on a fleet of goblin-crafted airships, and coming under attack by dragons, right after ousting the traitor in their midst back in Orgrimmar. Now compare that to how the Allies arrived - by a seaplane, without much fuss. Not much of a contest!But as they've confessed, they put more focus on the 1-60 starter zones than they did 80-85 zones. I'm willing to forgive them for it as this expansion has given me as many good memories as any other expansion so far (surprisingly enough, after a while, I have to admit I'm still enjoying the game as much as ever.)
