Skip goblin and Worgen starting areas.

General
Post Limit:
I don't know if I'm the only one that feels this way but I'm sick and tired of the gobling starting area. It was fun for the first 2 times but then It just gets boring.
So I would like to have an option at the beginning of the starting area to skip it and maybe start at the orc starting area.
That way I/we wouldn't have to go trough the same area over and over again.
Like the Barrens aren't boring. Or Ashenvale.
It's a brand new starting zone and personally I find it to be both entertaining and refreshing.

Sense, you make none.
Roll an orc and then racechange.

have to

You don't -have- to roll a goblin, you know.
hey!

goblin rocks
Have you noticed that the goblin starter areas are longer and partially harder than the worgen ones? Like the zombie quest for example.
Intrestingly enough, if blizzard were intent on moving the games story along, then they would have to find a way change and remove the starting zones for worgen and goblins, such as the goblins retaking kezan and making the whole island without the lost isles its starting zone, and the worgen getting to make Gilnaes there home again.
If you wanna start in the orc starter area roll an orc.
Personally I love the Goblin starting area. Its my favourite in the entire game <3 I've leveled over ten Goblins through there :3 Only way to roll, man.

Granted, I can understand not liking it and wanting to skip it buuuut.... Its just so Goblin! How can you like Goblins and all that they are, but not like the starting area? You got bombs, fires, explosions, NPCs sticking with you, fighting for your people, zombies, vs kill 20 plain striders for their beaks... errrr.
It was you that decided to level multiple classes of the same race?

OP has a point. The starting areas are like watching a movie. If you know what's going to happen, then it becomes a lot more boring to have to go through. Even if the goblin starting area is rather entertaining, I wouldn't be able to bring myself to go through it all again since I've already experienced it.

That said, Risc also makes a valid point of the fact that it's a lot better than the other starting areas which are mostly just a dull grindfest. But then it depends on your personal view I suppose.

I knew someone would make an suggestion like this...

the goblins retaking kezan
I got the impression Kezan was destroyed or otherwise rendered uninhabitable.

What you saw in the quest chain was only part of the island. Blizzard have said that they do want to be able to open up the island so that it would be possible to return. Maybe not to the Undermine which was destroyed, but at least the part of the island which we never saw.
After Cata Mulgore is now the best zone for leveling imo. No more running like before, most annoying quest were removed/changed. Durotar is horrible with the "help the 4 people" quest, soooo boring.

because I want someone to give actual feed back. and not make silly ideas
WoW is becoming too much like an interactive movie. They are removing the freedom. Everything is "take part in a storyline! No we dont care if you want to or nmjot, you are doing it!"

Everything is phased and part of an "epic questline" now, where you cant do anything until you complete this huge questline.

Remember Blizzard, just because you have phasing technology and made a cutscene in WoTLK, doesnt mean you have to add them ALL OVER THE PLACE.
