Sep 2nd 2011 10:32AM In part it seems that whether you like fewer, big expansions or more, smaller expansions depends on what you like to do.
For me the leveling experience from 80 to 85 was done well but wasn't what I really wanted to do. Those five levels, plus the re-gearing process (i.e. running normals and heroics) derailed my guild's raiding schedule for a couple of months. Since I like to raid, I'm glad to have a system now where we just get new raid content without having to re-level and re-gear. So, that means I like the bigger expansions that come less often.
On the flip side, for someone who doesn't raid for whatever reason, they will probably like having more questing experience and five man content. That means they will probably lean towards smaller expansions that come more often.
I would guess that casual and competitive pvp-ers face a similar split.
I'm not saying either option is "better". They just reflect different things that different people want.
Aug 30th 2011 10:08AM On my server, metas aren't a great option because, while most of the greens are nigh-worthless, carnelians and nightstones are actually valuable. That really cuts down the profit margin on metas. When you add in that metas are slow to move, it is typically better to transmute or de the greens.
