There are a few things that hurt Mists in this area and yet several which saved it from getting a much lower score. The first is the fact that Warcraftâ€™s gameplay systems are really starting to become out of date when compared other MMOs emerging in the market. Linear questing and hubs are becoming a thing of the past. This style of MMO gameplay needs to evolve in Warcraftâ€™s next expansion for sure. Mists offered some solid rewards in terms of getting through the content, no doubt, however there are much better worlds to play in out there on the horizon and even right now.
The talent system also hurt a lot here. The fact that talents are now so simple and that a strong portion of character customization is reduced to so few choices really makes the leveling process feel like you are missing something. If this system was designed for players to join the game from the start I would find it very unrewarding. For high level players it is just a respec and a few choices at the end to flesh out your character. I do think this new system has hurt the game. Even if players argue that there are more choices for classes, I personally canâ€™t see it. The idea was to be rid of cookie cutter builds, but this seems to have only made it worse.
The new dungeons, scenarios, challenge modes, and the Pet Battles definitely save Mists from getting a low score. The new challenge mode system really is fun and gives players a whole new goal to shoot for. The Pet Battles also are a lot of fun and add a lot to the game even if theyâ€™re â€œfluffâ€. I found both of these to really add to the enjoyment of playing the expansion.
There are lots of new WoW cataclysm racial talents as well as race and class combinations available! Look at this list: Human Hunter, Orc Mage, Dwarf Mage, Blood Elf Warrior, Tauren Paladin, Tauren Priest, Dwarf Shaman, Undead Hunter, Gnome Priest, Night Elf Mage and Troll Druid just to name a few.. Ideally, we should all be grabbing Burning Shadowspirit Diamond, but if you would rather wait wow gold until prices come down or a guild gets the cut, then Chaotic Shadowspirit Diamond is an acceptable alternative, if you donâ€™t feel the 54 intellect is worth the auction house price tag.The game will look as good as it possibly can, but the voice-acting will make the most impact. It is costly, but effective and used mostly in other MMOs as for special flavor perhaps, for important quests. One of the questions often asked of BioWare is how difficult the voice-acting and files was to manage, but for a company thatâ€™s used to the process, the voice-acting, we are told, is the simplest part of the game. It is scripted first in text of course, but with games like Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect and Dragon Age behind them, piece of cake!
