You know, I really don't understand why everyone is raving on about Cataclysm as if it's some big event. Treasures of Aht Urghan? That was a big event, adding a plethora of new game modes, new areas, new monsters and some new classes. Wings of the Goddess? That was a big event. Travelling back and forth through time, engaging the beastmen as they try to take over your outposts, fighting new enemies, new classes, new areas, new ways to level up.
Cataclysm just seems like a watered down version of one of FFXI's regular updates, no offence. A few tweaks to existing areas, a few new combinations (rather than any new classes) and a level cap raise. Granted it supposedly added 3500 quests, but given the quality of your average WoW quest, im guessing most involve hunting down random enemies or people.
Don't misunderstand. WoW can't be all bad (11 million subscribers would sorely disagree with me), but im not seeing why Cataclysm should be considered such a big deal when it's less impressive than even one of the FFXI expansions. I don't know. Maybe my standards are just too high?
