To each his own. My experience is that it plays fairly similar to WoW, but that's not the reason I will be playing it. I'm playing because it's Star Wars and Bioware makes fantastic storylines. Put the two together and BAM, instant hit.
To clarify, the lack of an auto-attack was not that great of a change for me. It was still just spamming hotkeys until something dies in PVE. The quests were all pretty good. If you boil it down to the essentials, yes you are being sent to kill x minions, pick up y items, visit z npc to do or get something else. BUT, it's all progressing the storyline and you feel much more involved than any previous MMO that I have played. So yes, there were elements of traditional quests here, but it's all sort of woven in or veiled by the awesome characters and neat story. It didn't feel like as much of a grind as other games are.
