World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria
A great addition to WoW marred only by "fans"
Mists of Pandaria is another entry in World of Warcraft's continued story & adventure, breathing in new life to the game and experience. Introducing a new class and playable race, the Pandarens as well as their homeland Pandaria. Furthering the struggle of the Horde and Alliance, the game focuses on a closer threat that goes beyond more than a simple villain of the day. It touches on subtle tones of invading lands, infighting, rebellion, justice and other major themes that Warcraft has always had thinly veiled under an addictive game and it's enjoyment.
The expansion is mostly hindered by those that have been long time fans and customers of Blizzard and their games. Most are bitter and hateful lashing against a game that is doing what it naturally does, add nuances and additions to an already successful game, but not drastically altering it to the point of it being 100% different. MoP has one of the strongest and most endearing worlds to explore since WOTLK's expansion, heavily based on Asian culture & tradition as well as mirroring mythos and legends of their Dynasties and ancient wars. The music is fantastic and well worth stopping to hear!
The game features also extend to new side quests and objectives to enjoy outside total endgame, including pet battles, your own personal farm to collect resources to sell or use for crafting! There are also Scenarios, a small venture for a smaller group of people to take part in situations that link to the main story, as well as fun less serious ones! MoP also includes a redesign of questing to immerse and hook in players. It's well wroth a look for WoW fans that can be neutral amid the hate that blizzard has had follow unnecessarily for so many years. If you aren't a fan of MMORPGS or Warcraft itself, this will probably not sway you, but it is an enjoyable ride that always boasts to keep players entertained for hours on end. Just take a break every now and then ;] makes the game far more enjoyable!
I did not like WoW when i got it. You have to get past the 1st missions. If you get itt beware. For some people it is way addicting. Watch the south park episode making fun of WoW. If you are a hardcore gamer DONT GET IT. Otherwise its fun.
Good, but not the best from Blizzard.
When i first got the game i was excited i couldn't want to finally do something new and have new goals. My problem is the way they did it. The dungeons are repetitive and barley reward xp ill be lucky to get 6 bars in a whole run. 85-90 is a pain without getting a lvl 90 friend to help you farm mobs. I do not mind having a 10 million xp requirement to level up but when a kill reward around 20 thousand xp its a problem. To the point that you just feel like giving up sometimes. Other than this its good, the new area is beautiful the music is great as always and the gear is better than cataclysm.
they clearly did not listen to the mass population
horrible dont do it. wont let me post my original post. they need a better market research department.
I love this expansion. The new zones are really beautiful. With this expansion you can level up to 90.
The game has seriously just went down hill.
I'm not gonna sit here an say WOTLC was the best exp ever. But it is clearly better then this one. The game seems 2 be made for kiddies 2 play like ages 5 up to 15 or something of that sort. The talents are horrible an really dont take much 2 pick like ppl have said before you can just close your eyes an pick an still be fine. Just hoping the next exp that comes out is better then this one. This is the first time I ever let my time expire an not care 2 put time back on. Blizzard this exp blows that's the buttom line.
Okay, until end game
I am not a hardcore WoW player by any means. I enjoy my dungeon queues, and I love questing. I strive to make my character the best I can for dungeons - not for raids. Still, I love the game and was looking forward to Mists of Pandaria expansion. The quest line in Pandaria was amazing. The cutscenes were by far the best in the game, and the quests proved a bit of a challenge for people entering in Cataclysm gear. However, I found that a lot of the enjoyment stopped when I hit 90 on my first character. When you hit 90, you have a few choices of how to obtain gear. You can do raids, but if you're not a raider, that's not an option. You can strive for PvP gear. But once again, if you're not into PvP, that's not a viable option. Or you can grind dailies. The dailies are optional, of course, as there are other ways to get the gear (such as raids). But if you don't want to do the raids or the dailies, you're pretty much stuck in the gear you have when you hit 90. The end game content feels lacking to me. It's fun, but is not nearly as fun as end game content for the previous expansions. I actually locked one of my characters at 85 so I could enjoy Cataclysm more before moving onto Pandaria. All in all, the expansion is okay, but it is far from the best one. If you are not a hardcore player, I recommend just waiting until there's another sale and buying it then instead of spending the full price. If you are a hardcore player, though, go for it. The raids might be enjoyable to you and it is nice being level 90. Also, Pandaria is beautiful. So, it's nice being able to explore it.
Jumping the shark
Oh man did Blizzard really jump the shark with Pandaria. The game has been so simplified it's not even enjoyable to play. Not sure how adding a cartoony panda race and simplifying an already overly simple game was a good idea. The graphics really aren't standing the test of time either, nor is the slow and sluggish combat system. Most servers are becoming ghost towns as people leave in droves. Oh well, there are much better mmos out there these days :)
Sadly i can't put a negative on the rating
I joined the game at the end of Wotlk it was fun it had a challenge in everything pve pvp you name it then cataclysm was ok 2 it had its challenges but not as before and now with these expansion is a joke healers never die on pvp just sit and spam everyone has way to much health to get killed with a heal on his back and pve (which i ain't a fan off) the little i played it completely sucked dungeons are a joke dumb boss fights and plenty more, these game is getting more attention towards kid players. and about myself i ain't a hardcore gamer i'm just an every day gamer. But thanks to these expansion i'm done playing World of Warcraft.
ATROCIOUS! ONLY FOR CHILDREN.
Everything about this expansion is terrible. From the lame Pandas to the mind numbingly boring quests. This game is a joke. They dumbed down the game so much it's now aimed at little kids. There are so many better mmorpgs out there for adults nowadays.
