I haven't played World of Warcraft since April (I prefer the lower investment Guild Wars), and don't plan to resume play with the upcoming expansion, but I've wasted a lot of time there and still have affection for this particular virtual world.
So it's worth noting that today (not December 7, when the expansion releases), all hell breaks loose in Azeroth. A giant dragon is going to emerge from a volcano, eat everyone, and remake the world. But it will be a better world, without all of those broken, tedious quests that required you to jump from continent to continent and back, or to kill hundreds of monsters hoping one will finally drop page #15, rather than page #2 or page #24, of some stupid book that you can't even read.
I'll have to drop by the neighbor's house and see what else has changed tonight.
