I would say there really isn't anything I have disliked with this reimagining of Book 3's early parts.
When I first played Book 3 after my hiatus in 2017, it was a disappointment. I really disliked it. Especially when you compare it to other much better done storylines like Tomix Saga, Blood and Roses and Calamity. Compared to those three, Shears and Main Story were lacking. Our hero would just go to place X, meet some people and do what they ask. There were a lot of characters added to the mix, most that we didn't know anything about. And our hero being frozen for 5 years didn't seem to affect our hero in any meaningful way.
Best example of this was the Shears. We just went there. Met Leon. Helped him. No questions asked like how we knew where it was? Why would we help him so eagerly? All we got was "Rose bad, we not like Rose, help us".
So, with these new quests, there is a massive improvement. There is much more foreshadowing now (like the mirror, Akanthus manipulating everyone, Amadeus, etc...) and the events feel more natural. Our hero reflects what has happened and wonders how everything has changed. Our Dragon has a much bigger part and feels more like a companion, than just a pet in our inventory. Reimagining of Book 3 has become my favourite release of the month, I just really like now how it's done.
And what I like the most is that Doverly has made a lot effort to showcase that Rose isn't all that bad and not every part of it is evil. Even our hero says it to Kara when we first meet her! Before it was just "Stop the Rose, they bad!" Now it's much more complex threat as showcased in later parts of Book 3.
I am still waiting for the changes to Espina Rosa. Because that storyline is the most annoying part for me. It has gotten better in hindsight, but that is only because of Shears' Rose Pajamas and Morning's End. I still very much dislike that we go to the prison, risk everything to break out Elryn, who doesn't do anything! Anything at all. He doesn't have any part on the story after that, he just says "Akanthus lies, go to Swordhaven". He doesn't even give us a specific reason to go there! And that DragonRider War always felt so off to me. It just didn't feel natural to the world of DragonFable that some DragonRiders would follow Saellah. And I am glad that part of the storyline will just be removed. We don't lose anything by that. Not to say that there isn't any potential to Saellah as a character, but in his current iteration, it was just... not that good.
