Further "Cata" fails:1) The Horde openly commits atrocities against Druids/Cenarion Circle (Stonetalon Peak, anyone?); the Horde also openly slaughters Night Elf civilians, conquers their lands & desecrates their sacred forests. Meanwhile, the Cenarion Circle becomes a huge part of the story and a major faction. Neither side even acknowledges what the Horde has done. No grumbling, no sense of distrust, no promises of future reckonings. Nothing.2) Malfurion is co-regent of Darnassus (status 1) & co-regent of the Cenarion Circle (status 2). Despite status 1, in his capacity as status 2 he's happy to work with the same people who are slaughtering his people, conquering his lands & desecrating his sacred forest all while butchering his fellow druids. 3) Malfurion shows up at Thrall & Aggra's wedding. He brings Tyrande in tow. Neither mentions what Thrall's people, led by the successor Thrall personally chose, are doing to the Night Elves. Ysera, guardian of the Emerald Dream & patroness of druids & Night Elves, also attends but says nothing about what Thrall's people & chosen successor have done to the natural world or her followers. The hero (us), who has also witnessed/participated in many of the Horde atrocities, also smiles politely and twiddles his thumbs.4) The Zul rehashes, while fun, ended abruptly and without explanation. Despite the lead-up machinima, the arrival of Troll emissaries in the two capitals, and the intro quests, there's not even so much as a "I'll get you next time, Gadget! NEXT TIME!" once you finish the quests. Many players wound up convinced that those two dungeons were the entire Zandalari effort to reunite the tribes & reconquer the world; it's hard to blame those players, since Blizzard didn't really put anything into the game to indicate otherwise.5) Blizzard touted the epic-yielding quality of Archaeology, but included only epic items which were outdated by the time of the first major content patch, and which were entirely dependent on the RNG; no further items of any quality were added throughout the expansion.
