Mists of Pandaria Zone Preview: Vale of Eternal Blossoms
2012/06/28 at 12:13 PM
Vale of Eternal Blossoms
, a zone for max-level players, is the seat of the Pandaren empire. Sealed shut for many years, it's open to travelers for the first time after completing Xuen, the White Tiger's trials, in
A Celestial Experience
. It is the location of the Alliance and Horde major faction hubs in Pandaria, as well as daily quests with
's archaeology hub, not to mention the dungeon
The faction hubs are very elaborate--Blizzard said they wanted them to make Dalaran look simple in comparison, and they achieved that! The faction hubs have all the amenities of major cities, as well as floors dedicated to introducing players to the level-90 Pandaren factions and scenarios with breadcrumb quests.
Between the Alliance and Horde settlements is Mogu'Shan Palace, the heart of the original Mogu empire. There are two points of interest here: the Lorewalkers and Mogu'Shan Palace, a 5-player dungeon.
