Uh oh...could Imordiros' plans be foiled already?
I did the text really fast, so there is probably about 50 typos in it. Please don't bother pointing them out. I'm not going back to fix them at this point, heh... (and Kleeyo is supposed to be looking at her headpiece in the 3rd panel, not the text above)
I was browsing a bookstore today and came across Pearl of Pandaria. I thought to myself "Are you kidding? They are now making wow-related children's books?" They totally packaged it like one, complete with the extra wide width for being extended across 2 laps. Turns out is regular comic material. Ended up getting it since I really liked the art style.
Well,I haven't played MoP, but I keep hearing its the best expansion yet (although that seems to be said about every new one) How is everyone liking it so far?

Hi. Well, I won't lie, I haven't played MoP, however I've watched several stream from guilds showing the world, quests, dungeons, and so on and all in all, it seems rather nice. I still think they failed the rp part of the expansion but I believe they managed to get a rather 'ok' to 'interesting' pve part.
About your comics... I thought Imordiros would go (more) insane and be sent to the closest asylum, but I guess anger took over. Can't wait to see how Kleeyo will defeat her... and come back in time.
13th Oct 2012, 11:59 PM
So... just to clarify... does this mean that the heart of time is useless now except as a +65 spell penetration gem?
Sucks to be Imordiros
Also, love the gem timeline, absolutly ridiculous, and funny
14th Oct 2012, 12:18 AM
I love her face when she is laughing xD
14th Oct 2012, 1:12 AM
Totally loved the timeline and all the references on it!
14th Oct 2012, 1:27 AM
I've always expressed interests in story and the living breathing world of Azeroth since my induction at WotLK. Like everyone else, I was super stroked for Cataclysm. The novelty wore off by the endgame, when upon hindsight, the entire expansion pack seemed scattershot, in terms of content and theme (I could go on about this). I didn't make an alt at this time, so I'm not one to say how emotionally fullfilling the 1-60 content was or not.
With MoP, you care not simply about YOUR story, but each side of it. As Horde, you get stranded and are immediately set upon by @$$hole natives. In the past, you would just kill them all, perhaps have the respawning mobs phased out, and move on. In MoP, you kill a bunch, then you move on to their village and get to know them so they'll stop attacking you. You meet characters of that race, you learn the race's history and how they tick (Hozen have way more personality IMO). Then you integrate them into your respective armies to go wage war with the opposing faction and other race they share the land with. Going into an Asian-themed country and getting the natives to kill each other. SYMBOLISM!... or something.
Then there's the Pandaren themselves. God, I wasn't there at BC launch, but I did play through the content, and I never got so close to the Draeni and Blood Elves as much as I did to the Pandaren. You learn how they rose from being slaves to the dominant power on the continent through calm collectiveness and passive agression. This is while you quest with them and fit into Pandaren society while they deal with crises that are partially due to your arrival. Then you feel like an asshole when your superiors order back to the front and blow up the countryside.
The exception to this is the Valley of Four Winds, which is an abrupt return to the more traditional grind. I recommend doing the first few quests, then going to the Karasang Wilds as soon as the questing gives you the option, which is early. The two areas have the same level range, and their storylines eventually converge, so you don't miss much.

"You don't get to laugh!"
14th Oct 2012, 5:07 AM
Enjoying Mists tremendously. Blizzard really tried to pull out all the stops on it and they succeeded in my opinion.
14th Oct 2012, 5:50 AM
I agree with everyone else, that timeline is funny as hell. I would have said for the Kobald "you no take shiny" as apposed to sparkly, but that's just me :p. As far as MoP goes...I quit right after patch 5.0.4 came out. I don't like what blizz did to my druid's tanking spec, lock's destro spec or my rogue's sub spec, did like what they did to my pally's ret spec tho, but not enough to keep me playing.
14th Oct 2012, 7:15 AM
"Well, I didn't see YOU paying 300g for it!"
14th Oct 2012, 7:58 AM
I'm loving Mists. Apart from enjoying the whiners who complain about having to actually work for their gear and such, I completed the Pandaria Loremaster achievement. The storylines were incredible (from an alliance perspective, having done Horde yet). I like the Jinyu, and the Hozen are interesting, to say the least.
Pet battling is a lot of fun (don't let people tell you otherwise. Try it yourself and then decide.), and while Heroic dungeons aren't much harder than their regular counterparts...the challenge modes will stomp you flat. They are NOT easy in any sense of the word. To give you an idea, the first boss in Scarlet Monastery's challenge mode has over 25 million health. And yes, challenge mode is a 5-man endeavor.
The Harvest Moon-esque farming you get to do for growing veggies is pretty fun, and a great way to stock on ingredients for your cooking. There are more dailies than you can shake a stick at, but you certainly don't have to do them if you don't want to. There are always several ways to progress.
Some people claim this expansion is not alt-friendly, but I'll beg to differ. It just takes some effort to actually get somewhere. As an old school and long time RPG player, I love having to actually work for my gear and everything else. :)
14th Oct 2012, 8:22 AM
Okay, really didn´t see THAT comming..
14th Oct 2012, 9:02 AM
I wonder...will we meet Rumochron? ;)
14th Oct 2012, 10:35 AM
he is probably drinking +15 stamina rum in Soutshore pub right now.
14th Oct 2012, 10:33 AM
Actualy what did that that thing do?
So far I think blue dragonflight´s Focusing Iris seems more powerful... even with lack of imagination Jaina Proudmoore demonstrated in it´s use.
14th Oct 2012, 12:54 PM
So THAT'S what happened to Gnomeregan!
Honestly, I'm enjoying the new xpac. While I don't agree with some of the class/spec changes, those that I do have and have played feel smoother to me.
Pandarens are fun, monks are fun (Mistweaver FTW!), and yes, pet battling is fun. To me, it's a good time-killer in those long queues. Got max flying and a couple hours on your hands? There ya go! In fact, I think I'm gonna go play some more now. Cheers! =^_^=
14th Oct 2012, 1:13 PM
so that's how the guy was killing everyone last week on some servers using a level 1 character
14th Oct 2012, 3:32 PM
Oh and to answer your question about MoP
It's pretty fun,all the new stuff and such.And the details.OMG ITS SO PEACEFUL AND RELAXING x3
15th Oct 2012, 8:23 AM
Ha nice south park ref.
I'm enjoying mop so far, after getting to lvl 90 I've been doing dailies...daily! Maybe I should do a web comic about that? They took off the limit on how many dailies you can do per day. You can't just buy gear you have to be honored with certain factions to buy justice points gear so ya...been working my way up but at least the quests are fun. Takes hours to finish them.
Dungeons even on heroic are preety easy but the raids are hard...at the moment my guild has wiped tons of times on the 1st boss ><
My biggest complaint is they spoiled the ending, I don't want to know we kill fucking garrosh at the end...they can hint at it in the story but they just ruined it
One of my favorite things is the guy they got to play loremaster cho, Jim Cummings....he's just win
15th Oct 2012, 3:42 PM
if I may add something regarding the 'Garrosh dies' part of your comment. I don't know what's your view on this plot 'twist' (more a 'oh, damn, the players don't like Garrosh being the warchief of the horde, let's get rid of him' from Blizzard), but in my opinion, Garrosh was one of the best characters/champions of WC lore for he had a history of his own that could explain how he got his opinion on the alliance as a whole (and human in particular) => his being belittled and left behind in Draenor by his own father, being scorned by the orcs because of what his father did, and then being told his father was a hero for what he had done, being put at the head of the Horde, etc... that'd throw everyone off their feet. In my opinion, his background is more complete than the one of Malfurion, Velen or even Varian Wrynn. I mean, the human king just hates orcs for what Garona (under the old god's command) had done to his daddy, but had he forgotten that it was an orc that saved him? (for without Rehgar, he'd have died alone in Durotar) And yet, none is going to kill him.
15th Oct 2012, 4:04 PM
King Varian only hates orcs for what they did to daddy? Heh...never mind the whole "World invaded, kingdom razed and homeland ravaged" part. Lets not forget that the Horde won the first war. The kingdom that was back then called "Kingdom of Azeroth" under his father, King Llane, was completely destroyed with Stormwind razed to the ground. It was their neighbor, The Kingdom of Lordaeron under King Terenas, that fought back and won the second war after the Horde unsuccessfully tried to invade it.
I have little (to no) sympathy for Garrosh. He sat safely tucked away in Nagrand during all the wars, where he himself had never been directly victimized by the Alliance (his world was destroyed by The Old Horde trying to escape and his father died to Mannaroth trying to fix his own screw-ups). Yet for some reason he hates the Alliance more than ANY other Horde lore character.
16th Oct 2012, 8:08 AM
Not really Varian hated orks mostly because he ended up in their slave pits, murder of his father somewhat contributed.
But that is mostly moot poit since he is choosen one of wolf ancient Goldrin, (also "patron" of the worgren and "avatar" of fury), since that was tempered with help of Genn Greymane he got beyond that.
He dislikes orks, doesn´t trust blood elves, and despises undead. And noone trusts goblins... Tauren he can tolerate...
He actualy tried to convince Jaina not to blow up Orgrimar with Focusing Iris...
Garrosh is out of control- he let his shamans use molten giants against Northwatch, used a manabomb to destroy Theramore, and utilized army of krakens to destroy alliance fleet, (Jaina and Kalec stopped those preserving majority of Stormwind´s fleet)
While I have no particular problem with using owerwhelming destructive power, all three instances create damage to very fabric of Azeroth.
16th Oct 2012, 1:06 PM
Garrosh believes that compromising with the Alliance will compromise the needs of his people. He hates the Alliance because they view his people as monsters and because they refused to share their resources with them. (TL;DR version)
Look at Durotan, look at the land the orcs call their home! I don't know what it looks like now after cataclysm but before it, it was most certainly desert! There's not much resources there and the land isn't fertile. The orcs were strong but they weren't self-sufficent; They were dependent on import.
Ashenvale Forest had everything the orcs needed. However, the night elves weren't happy about orcs messing with their sacred forest. This was what probably sparked the battle for Warsong Gulch, and it could have even sparked the war between the Horde and the Alliance which became WoW!
Garrosh witnessed the suffering of his people in Orgrimmar. Their opinions were split. Many were content living like that, as an atonement for their sins, but others didn't want that. They wanted their Warchief to take action, to stop coddling to the Alliance and take what they needed!
Garrosh decided to do exactly that. He became an answered prayer to his people by taking what they needed by force. Doing that has earned the gratitude of many and the wrath of many more. Now he's a scapegoat for every bad thing that happens in the Horde, despite the fact that the orcs did get what they needed! Needless to say, he must feel VERY pressured... I wouldn't be surprised if he snapped and went crazy. Or maybe that's already happened!
16th Oct 2012, 5:47 PM
The orcs are suffering in Durotar? Thats news to me O_O
Thrall lead the horde on an exodus to find a land to call their own, and he seemed to think the land he named after his father was a good spot, and seemed quite prideful of the city he built. Besides, the horde is easy to please...give them a few pig farms and they can make anything out of anything!
I certainly hope that's not the reason for Garrosh hating the Alliance more than those who actually fought in the previous wars (Nazgral, Saurfang, ect...or even Thrall who was raised as a slave by them).
16th Oct 2012, 8:04 PM
Huh... Now that I try to double-check my information, I can't find the source of it anymore! Surely I can't have imagined it all? :/
After re-reading about this subject from other sources, I can at least confirm that life in Durotan was tough but not necessarily that of suffering. They needed lumber from Ashenvale, presumably to build homes and other buildings. I don't know why they needed it that badly from the Alliance though.
I can't find any evidence that his people's well being was a factor Garrosh's tactics either. His hatred for the Alliance doesn't seem to come from personal experiences but from the old ways of the orcs. Strength is everything; Strength equals glory and admiration. To coddle to Alliance simply wasn't sensible to him. To him, it was a stain on the Horde's honor which he set out to fix by unleashing full power of the Horde upon the Alliance. That's all he seems to care about.
Oh, and the conflicts between him and Varian... Yeah, I think they play a part as well.
I can't find evidence of anything else. I should do these fact-checks more often before ass-uming things and making an ass out of myself. :/
17th Oct 2012, 10:09 AM
Well, I back up expaladin for I recall reading on WoW official websites several extracts and/or short stories and one of these was Garrosh being angry and reflecting on the comment 'You disappoint me Garrosh' Thrall had told him after the Dalaran event and his outburst against Varian (Varian who is the first to complain about the orcs' presence and his scorn is clear and he does provoke Garrosh) and also he recalls when he first came to Orgrimmar. Of course, he had been impressed, but then, as soon as he came in, the talk started (he was considered strange by the young ones for not being green) and an orc female spoke. She said (roughly translated as I had the text in French and can't find the English one):
"Have you really seen this city? Oh, sure, the market is full. But where does the food come from? Where are the farms in Durotar? That's right, there are not any. All we have here come from distant lands. [...] Or from what we manage to snatch from the desert. As for the security [...] the alliance is invading our land a bit more with each passing day. Well, if we can call that red stone a land! In the North these is the Ashenvale Forest where we could find everything that we lack of here. But did we settle there? No! We live in a damned desert! So tell me Hellscream, why does our beloved warchief, who care so much about his people, condemn us to rot on that stony ground while upstream there is everything we need? He has to be corrupted or incompetent or both. And you clearly isn't much better." (rest of the text here http://eu.battle.net/wow/fr/game/lore/leader-story/garrosh-hellscream/4#readmode) Plus, I remember I read in 'Cycle of Hatred' that Orgrimmar relies heavily on the trade they can do in Ratchet.
So no, they can't make anything out of anything (that'd be too easy ><)
My guess is that Thrall decided to settle here because 1) It's were they landed and they needed to start somewhere and 2) None else was living here (they couldn't go in the North because of the elves and their oh so sacred forest)
Paeris: Thrall ended up being even less than a gladiator, more like some human's pet, fighting in the pit too, yet he managed to get over it and consider humans as potential allies.
Now, I have to confess I didn't know about the Theramore incident, but I read about it and I'm rather surprised by the outcome. Well, I 'can' understand why Garrosh would do it (though, as it was on wowwiki, I do not know where this idea came from, if it was from him himself or someone whispered it to his ear etc) doesn't mean that I agree with his taking his course of action. But what surprise me more is that, at the end of the article, it's written that Varian refuses to help Jaina in obliterating the Horde! I was like 'WHAT? Varian, who was so adamant in destroying the horde in general and orc in particular, is served a reason to act and he just refuses it?' and Jaina... she did agree with the killing of her father, her own blood, and still be friend with orcs, but now she wants to blow them apart? (I'm not saying she's wrong, I'm saying it's not normal, given her past behavior). Why doesn't she go and have a talk with Thrall over it?
Speaking of Thrall, I understand that he has to help the dragon aspects fight Deathwing, but why does he have to replace the aspect of earth? I mean, aside from Onyxia and her brother, Deathwing had other children (most died in Draenor, I agree, but there are some remaining), why not using these as aspect of the earth? Thrall's duty WAS to lead the Horde first. Why would he have to do everything all the time?
As for Aggra, I don't mind Thrall having a wife of his own and children, what I mind is that they made her an even better shaman than Thrall. If I'm not mistaking in the timeline: either Aggraslan is older than Thrall (for she had been born on Draenor before the orcs came to Azeroth) or of his age or younger (but it'd mean she had been born on Draenor at a time the elements didn't want to have anything to do with the Orcs, that much is clear in the 'Rise of the Horde' book). So, how on earth is she a better shaman that Thrall so that he'd have to go to her to know more about Shamanism?
17th Oct 2012, 5:39 PM
Varian went through a certain ritual... one worgren use to temper their fury.
He is avatar of wolf ancient. His fury became focused - that the past matters, that death of his father matters, that death of his wife matters. But it must be used to change the future, not to bable about past.
It changed him, as it changes the worgren... He needed all three parts of ritual at once. Few worgren actualy need that. He was guided by Genn Greymane during that ritual... man he despised until they together nailed down a bear... Genn just with his claws, and Varian just with his dagger.
17th Oct 2012, 6:04 PM
And she did have stand off with Thrall when she tried to use water elementals as tidal wave against Orgrimar (it would have wiped out both Orgrimar and Stormwind and Kul tiras fleets (that was all Varian did muster... Kaldorei fleet was blockaded in it´s ports and Dreanai did not build many ships since they arrived)
Thrall and mostly Kalecgos managed to persuade her not to do it... but lets say that Thrall forfited the trust when he left Garrosh behind and chose the path of Earthen ring.
As much as other "aspects" went it was problem... black brood was corrupted utterly. A titanic artefact managed to purge eng from which Wrathion... all other black dragons on Azeroth were corupted. Some tried to fight and for short periods of time they succeded, only to fall into Old god driven madness again.
In outland corruption was purged from eggs by nether energies- nether dragons however have only ties to nether, not to land, making them useless as black aspect... and except for Sabelian who seemed reasonable all other were corrupted too.
Now with Aspect powers expanded... it does not matter. Blue dragonflight dispersed throughout the world (with few individuals bound to some duties- Tyrigosa teaching nether dragons resposibility, someone to watch over Chromatus´s prison (actualy I thing nether energies could be used to destroy that monster), black was effectively wiped out on Azeroth with sole uncorrupted dragon left. (Few others may survive in Outland), what the other three flights do, I have no idea. Probably they will follow blues and actualy start to live in the world they saved.
15th Oct 2012, 10:55 AM
A head trip leading to head games lol.
15th Oct 2012, 5:46 PM
and because they destroyed Azeroth, the orcs were held captive for decades, been treated as worse than beast and, I'd guess, slaughtered for fun (if not worse). And Varian would still hold a grudge against the orcs for this, he who had been nothing but a young lad when this happened? Would the orcs be more forgiving than the humans, thus have more 'humanity'? ^^ As for Stormwind being razed to the ground, it's sad, but it had been rebuilt (but not paid for, thanks to the 'nobles' of said city). And destroyed again, but that's Cataclysm.
Regarding Garrosh, I do not think he hates the humans that much. As I said, and as it's showed, Garrosh felt rejected by his father because of a sickness he had caught and he was left behind. Then he was scorned, hated,insulted by everyone because his father had been the first to drink the blood of Manoroth and so considered to be the one who brought the plague upon the orc race. No wonder why he felt so bitter and so unable to lead anyone on Draenor: nobody had told him otherwise. And then Thrall comes and tell him an entirely different story. With such a background, how can you/would you feel? And when Thrall told Garrosh he'd replace him while he was doing some dragons' business, I guess he couldn't believe it and perhaps the task was too much for him and Thrall would have done better asking either Nazgrel or Saurfang. But killing Garrosh for this is WAY over the required punishment.
15th Oct 2012, 5:47 PM
arf, that was meant to be an answer to Clef (By the way, I respect that you dislike Garrosh, don't get me wrong :) I just disagree and tell you why, that's all)
15th Oct 2012, 11:20 PM
For one, I am hoping they do not go the extreme of killing Garrosh. He can be "removed as warchief" without that happening. As I penned on Wowhead it would make a more interesting story is the combined forces of the Horde and Alliance come for Garrosh and what happens instead is that those forces end up killing/banishing what is discovered to be the, up until then, unknown 7th Sha. Garrosh would realize that it was his own internal weaknesses and conflicts that left him open to the manipulation and would then willingly relinquish the title declaring himself unworthy at the present to hold it. He could then begin taking steps to redeem himself as a heroic orc by just becoming another servant of the Horde. Much more fulfilling and satisfying end to the story. Although my tauren death knight has sworn to kill Garrosh herself IF....
And make no mistake, if Garrosh is killed it will not be for the reasons you have mentioned. If Garrosh dies it will be because of what he has done to innocent non-combatants and their families at Theramore. If Garrosh dies it will be in payment for the murder of Anduin Wrynn. If Garrosh dies it will be for betraying the neutrality of Dalaran and causing the Kirin Tor to go over to the side of the Alliance, in the process getting the Horde kicked out of the city on their asses. No, there are going to be many possible reasons for Garrosh being killed. If Garrosh has to be killed. If he has committed all of these atrocities on his own. UNLESS, he is not really Garrosh at this point. Not the Garrosh of Northrend, not the orc that Go'el chose to lead the Horde. If he has become possessed by the spirit of a monster, then for that he does not deserve to die.
16th Oct 2012, 2:52 AM
Well, even the most important lore characters have short life expectancies in WoW. Its pretty apparent Garrosh and Jaina are on their way out. Both sides are taking a pretty nasty hit from this. The question is: Whats going to happen next? That will certainly be interesting.
The Alliance is about to lose its biggest pacifist and the Horde is about to lose its biggest warmonger. And in 5.1 it looks like the Alliance is about to take an even bigger loss.
16th Oct 2012, 12:40 PM
Alliance did loose it´s greatest pacifist- the second manabomb went of.
Jaina effectively became more vengenful than Varian... especialy when she stared through the portal as Archmage Rhonin called the manabomb to Jaina´s tower... using tower´s enchantments to dampen blast suficiently... saving his wife Vereesa, Shandris Feathermoon and her scout teams as city was obliderated.
Then she finally realized that there ARE beeings with which there is no use negotiating anything.
16th Oct 2012, 5:57 PM
Well, she WAS one before Garrosh said "Hey, lets wipe out the city belonging to the ONE remaining Alliance lore character who wants to make peace with us!"
17th Oct 2012, 1:08 AM
Jaina is just upset that Thrall is spoken for now =P
17th Oct 2012, 1:11 AM
You still might catch him drawing her face in the sand, and quickly erasing it when Aggra approaches.
17th Oct 2012, 7:04 AM
Actualy Jaina has new boyfriend now... he joined Kirin Tor with her... You know him quite well... you know... former Aspect of Blue dragonfligt...
15th Oct 2012, 11:18 AM
MoP is beautiful. You really should check it out, you might be very thankful you did. The graphics are the most beautiful I have ever seen in game. The story is tied together through all the zones the best I've ever seen. The story on both Horde and Alliance side really hooks you in, and if you are paying any attention at all you do start caring a lot about these people and the mess that your actions have created for them. There are so many different dailies for the different factions I don't understand anyone saying they are bored at this point. That should not be possible.
Get tired of killing mantid for the Klaxxi? Hop over and do farming dailies for the Tillers. Do the dailies to earn your very own Cloud Serpent flying mount. If you love fishing in game, do some of the wackiest fishing quests ever seen for the Anglers. There is more than I can think of at this hour of the morning.
Enjoy pvp? I don't, but many do, and apparently Kleeyo does. In patch 5.1 they will be incorporating a world pvp hub in Pandaria with daily pvp quests where you can engage in pvp against other players and/or enemy npcs to defend and build up your faction's new outpost in Pandaria. Not ye old static battleground that trades back and forth, but dynamic faction bases that thrive and expand/upgrade based upon player efforts.
Scenarios are a great little addition to the former dungeon grind. Short, simple to navigate, they still contain great stories and provide fun bite-sized ways to acquire valor and gear upgrades. The dungeons themselves are fun, varied, have interesting mechanics and are probably the most well-tuned that any expansion has seen at intro.
Yes, it would cost you $40 to stick your toe in...but it just might reawaken the old joy for a world you don't play in anymore.
15th Oct 2012, 9:56 PM
I haven't been able to play MoP because I was never able to download that new update and I never bought the expac because I'm not home enough to actually play any new games (since I leave my console and gaming laptop at home). But now I want to make a damn monk of punch mobs in the face.
Damn you college and not giving me the ability of enough free time (plus wi-fi) in your halls!
18th Oct 2012, 4:08 AM
There's a hilarious twist! She cuts the gem into a spell penetration gem and wrecks with it now!
There's a long line of what happens, though I think pictures would work easier for the less literate crowd.
I love the timeline though, that long wait was just too much fun! XD
I'm liking the fact that I can now punch gnomes to death as a Pandaren monk, it's worth it! I'm enoying the new race and class, and Blizzard came through for us with that 11th character slot they promised with the addition of a new race and class! I hope they add another slot in the next expansion too!
Pandaria is insane, it's like a ton of possible Chinese legends come to life, but with more gnomes getting killed!
Still needs more gnomes dying though.

i like MOP alot, its not quite as much story as cata was right off the start but the art is way cooler in the land scape and with this expantion blizz is trying to do more pach updates and bring in more story over time then all at once.
as far as other stuff leveling takes a bit more time cuz your on the ground till level 90 so i wouldn't say its a realy easy expation like cata was.
(i dont care about tipos)

I was not convinced by MoP Beta and some of the new things just dont seem so shiny and new. Im one of those who fail to see why they added pokemon to the game, i can play that on my DS. And im confused by the whole "Lets go beat up Garrosh, he is evil now!" when Blizz more or less buildt up for Sylvanas to be a huge threat to both Horde and Alliance alike.
And am i the only one that found the destruction of Theramore event or scenario or what they call it to be boring? Sure you can do it with no tank or healer but if you have either its just facerolling from start to finish and it really didnt offer that much story.
All in all to me MoP just seem like more of the same old, even the monk is more or less a druid with no shapeshifting and cool tricks. : /

The continent of Pandaria in MoP is actually very well done. When you travel it while questing or doing other things it really feel like a living world with pandarens going about in their day to day lives and such.
