Here is my take on this topic in general. Anything with a level cap increase i expect to be a paid expansion in an mmo. I was surprised when it was initially announced we wouldnt have to pay for it and then when they changed their minds its pretty much what i expected

For $10 you get a new planet, 8 different storyline, and new patches that would probably ad flashpoints and ops onto it, is that too expensive to people? The amount of lore they put into this exp is likely more than a WoW expansion could afford, consider it's one for each class.

Umm it's not 8 different story lines...more like one epic storyline,confirmed elsewhere. And it's only 10$ if you pre-order, 20$ on release. I wouldn't pre-order unless they give all the details out.

It's NOT going to be 8 different storylines. It was already confirmed in dev tracker that the new planet is just a planet storyline. That means 2 basic quests, one for imps and one for pubs. Get your story straight about what you're paying for before you tell us we're overreacting.

Not to mention, it's STILL not about the money, it's about what we were told and then the Hickman Effect.

If you are going to bring WoW into your argument then I'll make a comparison for you. Makeb is nothing more than Isle of Quel'Danas. That zone had a new instance and a new raid and dailies and guess what? No additional cost to subscribers, just added content in a patch.

In my opinion it is, as long as it's cheap.

I think, without finding out the other things the "expansion" will offer the amount offered matches the price point, especially at 10 bucks.
