The rest of the expansions made sense whether you liked them or not...started in vanilla it was after WC3 if you played that...then the dark portal opened so we had to go back there to fight them...then the scourge became an even bigger issue so we fought them in lich king, all of these tied together with the original stories from warcraft. Even cataclysm, even though it's not my favorite kind of makes sense in a way story wise...but then pandaria, I just don't understand how that made sense in any of the story when their main goal was to be an april fools joke not a piece of lore...anyone care to enlighten me?
This thread got abit off topic, the OP wanted to know the point of the expac. A blue posted and answered it's about getting back to the roots of the horde/ally war, no central bad guy. Sort of how things were in vanilla.
I've leveled to 90, I've found no Halaa's, no wintergrasp/tol borad, no venture bays, I did not do 1 single quest that would flag you for pvp, cuz you were pitted against horde doing a mirror quest to yours. Think that beach quest in twilight highlands. That last part is what i thought we we're going to get alot of, quests that had great reward choices both pve and pvp relate but they flagged you and put you into pvp competition to complete the quests.
Aftering questing through every zone I could count on 1 hand, maybe I'd need a couple fingers from the other, the quests that had direct ally vs horde story to it. The rest is what wow has always been, new factions, that send you out collecting and killing monsters.
If there is a war going on between ally and horde in Pandaria, there must be some island still shrouded in mist and they're all fighting over there.\
I should add, or it hasn't been implemented yet.
