    its not about pandas its about pandaria or w/e the eff its called...if you played the Warcraft 3 (the RTS) or read some books you'd know some lore about them, I'm surprised they did these before The Emerald Dream..maybe they're saving it for the last expansion right before they release their MMO they are currently in the works about.

    The new class is a Monk knew that was coming....

    But I didn't see what side it is on.

    And with the new annual pass thing they are trying to get their WoW players to burn time on D3 by handing that out for free. Sheesh, that's potentially a lot of time to commit to Blizzard!

    Any pandaren gets to choose horde or alliance at level 10.

    All the extras look good but its not enough to tempt me back after 10 months off the game now.

    That was my first question on which side got it because none of the news I read mentioned it. But finally found it and that you choose which side depending on the quest chain you pick . That should be pretty fun.

    Aye it is pretty good, I wish more games gave you the choice like that, reminds me of matrix online where you could be whatever class you wanted and then choose your faction later in the game.

    The only thing thats making me want to come back is the changes to Talents...Really looks balancing for pvp (all I care about honestly)..I may just buy the 12 month pass to ef around in game, get diablo 3 and, a beta key...as its cheaper if I was still playing

    I played WoW since the beginning. I have decided to spend that monthly fee on the stock market instead.

    I may be missing out on expansions but at least now I can waste my money on a better game.

    I do not miss WoW one bit.

    WoW, it's the best for what it accomplishes, it has no comparison.

    Wait-a-minute, is this a rip off of Kung Fu Panda? ;)

    Seriously I watched the movie at Blizzard. Tremendous environments.

    It is getting worse in every expansion. Compare the beginning of wow with what it has become now and you'll see the difference. Blizzard is lowering even further the average age of the game community.

    Best MMO ever. Almost a 13 year vet now.

    So is this whole panda thing real? To someone who doesn't know much about WoW, it definitely seems a little different than the previous expansions.

    I'm pretty sure that Blizzard's Pandarian/panda lore in the Warcraft universe predates Kung Fu Panda (which came out in '08).

    Played WoW for 5 years since release and the new expansion just makes me yawn. Clearly Blizzard isn't interested in the US and EU markets any more and catering to Chinese market. I'm not even interested in D3, either. SWTOR and GW2 look more exciting.

    Yea, but it's origins are little more than an April Fool's day joke, and now it's an expansion lol. I quit about a month before the MoP title leaked out. Looking over the news this past weekend just reminded me of why I quit.The new talents bit does nothing for me, they've scrapped and redone them every single expansion. The "pokemon" pet combat bit looked mildly entertaining, but then remember over 1/2 the pets won't be allowed to fight anyway (who doesn't want to see the little argent kids get smacked around lol).

    I will say though Order & Chaos online (for iOS devices) really reminds me of vanilla wow, and it's virtually free. Now if they can just get their security issues under control.

    Order and Chaos is a buck right now, and you get three months free. I started playing a bit last night, and I'm not sure I'll stick with it, but it cost less than a cup of coffee, so what the hell.
