So what is the story of World of warcraft? What is the point of your character? How is our character impact the world? There is no story IN World of warcraft. there is story AROUND it. Its stupid that I need to look up a story just to understand what point in the time line my character is.
I think it all depends on how you play WoW or any other game. I went from FFXI to WoW to follow some of my friends and pretty much thought it was going to be a huge joke. I was raised with the whole lolWOW mentality and started off with that. Was more than a little surprised by the quality of some of the stories I did find there. The story is there but I found it wasn't nearly as obvious at times. Some of the best stories are in dungeons and depending who you are with, they can get overlooked because you're in there with guys/gals who are leveling up their 5th character to 80 and have already done it a thousand times and have no interest in waiting while you read a bunch of story related stuff. When I got a character to 80 I started doing lower level dungeons just for the story to them.
