Well it's not a WoW launch without some sort of server issues, lag, or disconnects. All of which I experienced after spending almost 2 hours in a queue to get into my server. Launch issues aside though I'm really enjoying what I got to play.
I'm starting off leveling my Blood Elf Paladin and as soon as you start the Draenor quest you are immediately thrust into the thick of action. While it is a bit over the top and corny, something about it is just very charming. The first hour or so has you do a variety of MMO styled quests but there is nothing long or drawn out about them. Probably cause I'm way over geared the quests don't pose any sort of challenge but I think that's the point. Blizzard want you to feel powerful and that you are truly doing something to affect this world and I do.
Within the first hour or so you meet all the Warlords in a very Borderlands inspired intro for each one, begin the creation of your Garrison, and IMO feel like you have a personal stake in the conflict that is going on. It's great that Thrall and other heroes refer to you as commander. I also like that as a "hero" in the world you begin fighting side by side with the iconic heroes themselves.
I wish there was a little bit more exposition of why Horde and Alliance are fighting side by side in the game. I know the lore of why it's happening but I can see that being very confusing for someone who doesn't keep up on it.
Didn't get a chance to play this morning due to Unscheduled maintenance but I'm hoping to get some quality time this weekend with it. Got to say I haven't had this much fun playing an expansion since Burning Crusade or Lich King.
