Just have to post thanks for putting this up ASAP! love ya guys
GARROSH DIES. THANK THE GODS, I HATE HIM SO MUCH. This expansion is a complete success no matter what as long as he dies.
Yesssssssssss, they finally listened to the players on one thing almost everyone wantsKill Garrosh
Garrosh will be this expansion's final boss.Da *!@#.....really? O_OAs patches progress, the Alliance and Horde decide that Garrosh is a menace, growing even more power-hungry with each development. The final patch will be the Siege of Orgrimmar, where everyone unites to take him down.Well...there goes any chance of a redeemable character from Garrosh; guess he's going to be like his father after all.Klaxxi: Rebel order of mantid lords who fear their queen has gone insane.So, like the Nerubians, we get to fight along side them. Cool.Yaungol: A newly-discovered descendent of Tauren, similar to the Taunka in Northrend. When Pandaria broke up, they were stranded and eventually developed into a visually distinct sub-race. They've been forced out of Townlong Steppes by the Mantids and ferociously want their lands back.YAK PEOPLE! Heh, well that explains that one screenshot.All the new fighting on Pandaria unleashes the full wrath of the Sha, a force that feeds upon negative energy. In addition, the strengthened Sha will infect the mantids, making their annual swarm even more potent than usual. Meanwhile, the ferocious Mogu will reunite with the Zandalari, their old friends, in an attempt to reclaim their kingdom.Hm, Mogu and Zandalari, are we finally gonna learn where the Trolls fit into the formation of the races of Azeroth? And that's interesting about the Sha over shadowing the Mantids with madness.Pandaren Faction Differences Pandaren that join the Alliance and the Horde are considered to be very rare--they're a subset of the already-rare group that's decided to explore and live on The Wandering Isle. Most Pandaren remain neutral and isolated on the main continent. Pandaren that pick a faction do so knowing that isolate them from their previous world and family. Pandaren live in the moment--while they're reclusive, everything they do is whole-hearted and intense, from farming to drinking to sleeping. They prefer meditation to combat--when they do fight, it's with their whole body. They are careful to show negative emotions, as that quite literally can summon a physical enemy. Alliance Pandaren follow the path of the Tushui, focusing on justice and morality. Their leader is Aysa Cloudsinger, who firmly believes success in any endeavor never justifies immoral deeds. Horde Pandaren follow the path of the Houjin, which are impulsive and pracical. Ji Firepaw is the leader, believing it's honorable to defend home and family no matter the cost. Before Mists, interactions with the Alliance and Horde were very rare. Chen Stormstout is one of the most famous explorers, taking part in epic events such as the Liberation of Theramore while always on the move for exotic brewing ingredients. He's back in Mists on the Pandaren mainland, investigating the problems behind his brewery.Well done Blizzard! Though, really, giving the Yang to the Alliance and the Yin to the Horde?Glyph of the Stag: Your Travel Form now appears as a Stag and can be used as a mount by party members.Haha! That is awesome!All the stuff for the new content section sounds great; the Scenarios, the Challenge modes and the Pet battles.Pandaren get a cutscene with the Alliance and the Horde, showing the current situation and the personality of their faction leader. Horde: Garrosh is beserk that he's missing a fleet of ships, after using the floor in front of his throne to show animated versions of navel battles he's instigated and won against the Alliance. There were major victories off the coast of Tanaris and Tol Barad, with a supply root to Booty Bay established. He ends up strangling a goblin who brings him news of Alliance counter-attacks and reveals that a ship has been lost. He ignores advice to focus on the future instead of the past, and demands payment of debts from realms in his power. This clearly sets the stage for how Garrosh will spiral out of control later. Alliance: The Alliance scene is more subdued, taking place in Varian's war room. The generals calmly analyze the situation and decide to try to rescue their survivors and cargo. The cutscene ends with an epic shot of your character flying over the sea on an Alliance airplane.Looking forward to watching both of those.The stuff about the Monk is pretty interesting; can't wait to see the final finished project.And the dungeons and raids section is great; gonna be awesome that all of the starting raids are gonna be in LFR! Also, can't wait to see the updated Scholomance!
I agree, Garrosh's death, etc.But also... farms. I'm intrigued, I think. If nothing else, it will be an interesting experiment!
I'm gonna go ahead and say it... Garrosh being the final boss, interesting. But i think it'd be awesome if he is... yet doesn't die. Every expansion, we find out the big bad boss man, and we kill him. I'd laugh if he "gets away", yet accidentally drops loot from his pockets, if you get my meaning. Hell, if you look at the Lich King fight, NPC's were involved at the end. Who's to say that somethign similar happens, yet Garrosh isn't the one that dies... Doubtful? Sure. But who knows.
Yesssssssssss, they finally listened to the players on one thing almost everyone wantsCata was kind of an experiment in giving players everything they wanted, and most of the aspects that sucked were a direct result of that. I think we can safely assume players know less about game design than Blizzard does.A new faction lets player have their own farms in-game.Hahah so after adding Plants v. Zombies in Cata, now we get Farmville? I guess Angry Birds will be in the next expac.Revised SM and Scholo look pretty good. I always liked both, even the "boring" parts, so I hope the new versions don't supercede the existing ones. Shortening Wailing Caverns removed a ton of its character and I'd be sad to see the same happen to other iconic dungeons.The valor point system will be entirely revamped. Players will augment their gear and upgrade levels using them.Boy was that overdue.I was pretty skeptical of MOP before the news came out tonight. Now I'm pretty eager to play it. It better have a release date Sooner rather than Later, because this Annual Pass is continuing to look like a bum deal.
Garrosh dies and dem druid glyphs......sold.
Oh well hey. Lookie there. We get to finally kill Garrosh. BLIZZARD REALLY DOES LISTEN TO US :'DAlso, Harvest Moon type thing and new mounts? I love this xpac already.
Ugh, Garrosh as a raid boss? This absolutely IS the expansion where Blizzard listens to the forumtards.
The amount of awesome here is completely incalculable.
...after thousands of years and the ships went off course, thanks to Garrosh's navel warfare.Lol. No wonder the horde turned on him.
Anyone else get the chills reading this? I'm freaking out myself. Mists is looking like the best expansion of WoW yet! Thank you Blizz for all your hard work and thank you Wowhead for being the first to get all this great intel to us!
I have GOT to get a new computer so I can play this thing on Ultra. Nothing less will do! Beautiful work Blizzard! Wonderful job on the Pandaren females, I just hope we have some less cutesy face options as well. She looks like your run of the mill fursuiter. XD

Well, its official, regardless of how else this expansion turns out, its gonna be a smashing success for me. WE FINALLY GET RID OF GARROSH.Good riddance. Honestly, WHAT-THE-HELL where they thinking when they took away our awesome Thrall and gave us that stinking pile of crap? what was the whole point of doing that? why us? :SWhat were they trying to prove? jeez.Other than that, loving almost everything about MoP, though I am sad about a few things.A: DOTA bg got scraped T_T there goes my one incentive to go back to pvp.B: No new race models, even worst yet, assuming they DO add them in the future, Blood elves (The one race I use) will be last.C: we don't actually get rid of garrosh till THE FINAL patch of hte expansion, meaning I gotta put up with that imbecile for yet another expansion pack (2 are already enough GET US RID OF HIM ALREADY DAMMIT. And add someone equally despicable to the alliance for a change. Why must all the jerks be added to MY faction?)Overall, one of the things I love the most about this expac is the revamped Scarlet Monastery. I had my reservations, but not anymore.And I swear to god IF HEROD DROPS AN UPDATED RAVAGER (With the same whirlwind proc) I AM FARMING THAT PLACE DAY AND NIGHT UNTIL I HAVE IT.THIS I SWEAR!Edit:Ugh, Garrosh as a raid boss? This absolutely IS the expansion where Blizzard listens to the forumtards.ARE YOU F*bleep*KING KIDDING ME? As the Überhorde fan of wowhead I think you deserve a demotion. Do you HONESTLY believe garrosh should remain in charge? ARE YOU FOR REAL? dude where's your horde patriotism? garrosh is a SPIT on everything the horde represents, he's a mockery of every single honorable value the horde was founded upon. He's a vain attempt into reviving an OLD horde that was cast down for very good reasons.I honestly hope you weren't serious about your statement, or I'll honestly begin to question your loyalty to the horde and its TRUE warchief. (Hint: His name is THRALL)
A lot of info giving here, brilliant job guys, its looking awesome, i cannot wait for the expansion.Rather wish this expansion was out tomorrow haha :p
