What do you want to see in the next expansion
The mists of Pandaria have not long risen to reveal the new continent and its inhabitants, but already, speculation has begun about the next expansion's title with a thread on the EU forums. While titles are fun and all, what's probably more interesting is content. What would you like to see from the next expansion, in terms of gameplay, world, story, or any other aspect?

Story-wise, ever regular WoW Insider reader will know that I'm not one of the people here who are really into the lore side of things, but I'd love to see something more like The Burning Crusade, Wrath, or even, to a lesser extent, Cataclysm. Much as I'm enjoying the current expansion, the story doesn't excite me so much as the traditional super-villain who tries to take over the world. I still remember watching the Burning Crusade trailer and having my mind blown by Illidan, and the same applied for the Wrath trailer, and the Cataclysm trailer. For me, obvious villains like that are exciting! Maybe I'm too unsubtle for the slow story creep that's Mists.

As far as gameplay goes, I've said it before and I'll say it again: I would love to see improvements made to PvP leveling. More transparency in XP gains, more PvP quests, more gear awards. Ghostcrawler spoke about scaling level and stats in his recent Dev Watercooler on PvP, and that would be great too. Aside from that, more alt-friendly design. Cataclysm left players with a lot of alts, and it seems that many of them want to carry on with this flexibility in Mists, but the devs freely admit that this is not an alt-friendly expansion. I'd like to see a shift away from dailies and solo play, and the return of reputation tabards!

But that's just my wishlist, which caters to my preferences, priorities, and style of play. What's yours?

Mists of Pandaria is here! The level cap has been raised to 90, many players have returned to Azeroth, and pet battles are taking the world by storm. Keep an eye out for all of the latest news, and check out our comprehensive guide to Mists of Pandaria for everything you'll ever need to know.
