I havnt really read anywhere on here or on the blizz forums about what I want to know so I thought I would post here to see if any beta testers could give me their own opinions on this.

I want to know, if any beta testers have done both Horde and Alliance quests, which set of quests they enjoyed better. Was the game more enjoyable playing as the Horde or as the Alliance?

I dont care if one side was more enjoyable because there might be more people on one faction than the other. I dont care if one side was more enjoyable because each side has their own specific job class. I just want to know what side has more enjoyable quets.

And yes, I realize I will only get peoples opinions and not facts.....thats all I am asking for.

Thanks.

I have played almost exclusively Alliance, but I have started a character in each of the Horde starting areas and played through a little of the Barrens. I'm not the greatest authority then, but what I experienced what moderately equal, I suppose. I think I liked the Alliance quests a little better, but I've done most of them at that level 2 or 3 times each now, so might be a familiarity aspect.

OTOH, I do know that at some levels, there is an imbalance with the number of quests available. Horde in particular are quick to complain about early 20s, and say that Blizzard has an "Alliance bias," so I think it remains to be seen what Blizzard is doing to revamp many of the zones in Kalimdor.

The alliance areas and quest structure were designed first. Horde areas offer less quests and it becomes noticeable in the mid twenties. Bliz is working on horde content now, and it did get a little better in the latest push. By release it will all be balanced.

Thanks for the help guys.

Reason I asked is because a group of freinds and I are switching over from FFXI to WoW and we all want to be in the same faction. I figured we would have the most fun being the faction with the most "favored" quests.

We have been leaning Horde, so hopefully I can test it myself a little bit in the server beta or the open whenever it starts.
