At Blizzcon 2011 Blizzard revealed the latest expansion to the World of Warcraft – Mists of Pandaria. The expansion includes a new playable race called Pandaren. As usual the games fan base is decisively split over the announcement. Some are calling it “the end of WoW” and have already cancelled their subscriptions, while others are excited about everything Pandaren!
Unleash the Secrets of a Lost Continent
Shrouded in fog since the world was sundered more than ten thousand years ago, the ancient realm of Pandaria has remained unspoiled by war. Its lush forests and cloud-ringed mountains are home to a complex ecosystem of indigenous races and exotic creatures. It is the homeland of the enigmatic Pandaren, a race that celebrates life to the fullest even while under siege by an ancient menace.
The new continent reveals itself to a broken world just as the Alliance and Horde are spiraling ever closer to a war that will consume all of Azeroth. Will the mists of Pandaria part to reveal the world’s salvation? Or will the battle to control this rich and breathtaking new land push the two mighty factions over the brink of war and into total annihilation? The answers await within Pandaria’s mysterious shores!

So what do you think? Is the Mists of Pandaria and it’s Pandaren Monks the end of WoW or is this a positive direction for the game? On a personal note I am excited about Mists of Pandaria because of the obvious Asian influence as well as the hint of martial art combat in the game. ↑ Back to Top
