It's interesting to read your article and I'm glad that so far the Beta has brought to you a sense of wonder that you felt like you had lost with Cataclysm, this however has just not been the case for me.I remember having my mind blown the first time I stepped through the Dark Portal and was presented with the wonders of Outland. The excitement as the boat went through those amazingly high cliffs as I entered Howling Fjord (less excited by Borean Tundra), and even though I ultimately hated Vash'jir as a zone (water levels, bleh) it was still exciting to explore a strange new world and exciting new ideas for WoW.When I loaded into the Jade Forest, my first thought was Meh. No excitement, no sense of wonder, nothing new or interesting for me to see. Just another forest in Azeroth, albeit yes a pretty forest, well detailed, etc, but really just more of the same jungles I've been looking at since I first encountered STV 7 years ago.I felt the same on the Wandering Isle, yes it is pretty and polished, and I do love the architecture, but by the end of it I hadn't had a single moment that made me go "WOW" - like I had with the starting areas of Worgens, Goblins, and Blood Elves before them (less so with the Draenei)I haven't researched to see if any of the later zones hold anything new or interesting, but so far Mists have not cleared to reveal anything interesting for me.
