Wrath wins for a few reasons:
- it was the expansion that kept me raiding until the last day. I remember killing Arthas when it still mattered.
- They got the idea of a story better than TBC, and also that you needed to see the villain throughout the story
- Death Knights rocked
- The zone design was awesome.
Legion my biggest criticism is I don’t like artifact power. I reminds me too much of leveling my pants in DAoC ToA. It’s also the one expansion I haven’t felt like leveling my alts, but some of that is there is so much to do on my main.
Almost every expansion I can look back on and pull something positive out of: TBC, flying, BELFs, Draenae, Karazhan. Wrath, ICC, LFG, great zone design. MoP Pandas, good zone design, a story with some humor. WoD: seeing the “original” Draenor was nice. Legion: Demon Hunters are fun, good zone design, and an attempt to have some variety in leveling progression. The best I can get with Cata is “goblins?” The streamlined leveling from 1-60 was nice, but leveling now is so irrelevant it feels like a porno that skips right to the money shot.
