The Daily Grind: Which MMO content updates were better than expansions?

Dig it.

Recently, RuneScape pumped out an update for the game called Archaeology. While it wasn’t, to my understanding, a full-fledged expansion, it was treated with a great deal of pomp and honor. Players went nuts for the game’s latest skill and enjoyed the full soundtrack that went along with it.

It made me think of the fact that, sometimes, a really good content update may be better than some expansions that MMORPGs produce. For me, I guess it’s all in how relevant and interesting the patch is. If it makes some strong quality-of-life improvements, adds a feature that I really enjoy, and gets me enthusiastic about playing through some new content, then yeah, I might rank it above some of the more lackluster expansion packs that come out.

What say you? Which MMO content updates were better than expansions in your eyes?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
