Ok, Let me start with the fact that I used to be a hardcore wow-geek. Having said that, you know this post will be slightly opinionated. Anywho.
After doing a lot of research into the next WoW Xpac: Mists of Pandaria, I have a few things to say; On the subject of Pandarens: Why did Blizzard wait so long on adding a neutral race? I mean you see different members of most the races taking up allegiance somewhere supposedly they would be hated, the Argent Dawn and Crusade is comprised of both sides who have learned to play nice….and in my opinion this update would have been best used before Kung Fu Panda had been released….because if you know anything about WoW and its forums, you already know this is the main comparison being made.
On the subject of the Monk,(which is what our bear people bring to the table), Yay! Another druid type class…Heals, DPS and Tank rolled into one wearing leather…wait wait wait…they don’t have auto attack you say? Sounds kinda like SWTOR to me. Sneaky Blizz, you tricksters! I am interested to see how the class unfolds but I think it is just another bandaid to stem the hemorrhagic subscription loss.
But wait there’s more! They are adding pokemon to the game in the form of companion pet battles. ‘Nuff said.
And last but not least: The dumbing down (further that is) of the Talent Trees. Level cap will be raised to 90 and every 15 levels you pick one of 3 available talents. So now instead of 51 choices in Vanilla WoW, you get 6. YAY!
That’s a game changer right there!
