    Yay or nay?

    I am yay!

    Also info about the Digital Delux edition: http://eu.battle.net...digital-deluxe/
    Looks like it's going to include the mount, but not the pet. Odd.

    Also info on the Collectors Edition: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/services/collectors-edition/

    The Digital Deluxe does include the pet, at least for US.

    "World of Warcraft - Mount and Pet
    Take to the skies of Azeroth astride the magically-conjured wings of the Imperial Quilen mount, then fly to your next adventure with the Lucky Quilen Cub at your side."

    But I'm going to have to say "Nay" to the game. I haven't played in almost a year now and haven't felt any desire to try it out again. I did play a bit of the MoP beta but only long enough to confirm I still wasn't interested.

    I bet it's going to be a lot of fun, though.

    Yeah, at first the pet wasn't in there. A Blue later clarified and now it's on the page as well. Looks like I'll be buying that then. :]

    I've explored Pandaria a bit and frankly found it pretty sweet. The major lore isn't really interesting but the small lore, as per the usual Blizzard style, is very engaging. Also Pet Battles and all those small things I like about Blizz games.

    Ha. Bagstone.

    It's more yay than some of the other expansions I bought, so I guess yay. It's sort of nice to see if I did ever decide to go back there is something there that interests me a little now.

    Just the fact they do not have another whelp type pet..makes this collectors edition suck :(

    I was thinking about getting it just for the artbook alone, those things sell very well on Ebay.
    I just want a little bit of tenderness :(

    A digital standard version will be more than enough.

    I will not pay 15 € for a pet (if I would I would rather buy a pet fron the store) and I am not too excited about soundtrack and artbook..

    Yay for me... I am enjoying Guild Wars 2 a lot lately though.... but yea, still going to play MOP!

    I've been reading on MMO-Champion about the pre-expansion event, or should I say the lack of one. Apparently Blizzard is just introducing the new Scenarios which is one of the new features of MoP. There isn't an event to get special items only available from a pre-launch event. The scenarios that are being released before MoP will be available permanently.

    Sounds really disappointing. The pre-expansion events were some of my favorites, partly due to getting unique loot.

    I will say that this is pretty cool, though:

    The World of Warcraft Battle Chest now includes Classic, Burning Crusade, and Wrath of the Lich King, all for $20. Existing Classic and Burning Crusade accounts seem to have been upgraded to Wrath of the Lich King for free! You can purchase all of World of Warcraft up to Mists of Pandaria for $60 now as well.

    Actually Theramore brings two unique items that will disappear come MoP. For the Alliance - a Theramore tabard that has a "plant Theramore banner" on use effect and a Mana Bomb fluff item for the Horde, with a 30 min cooldown that I'm honestly not too sure about its effect, since i'm Ally, but assume it does a pretty big blue explosion.

    When MoP comes out these two stop dropping.

    Also Blizzard's stance on this event is that they preferred keeping their resources into MoP content rather than "one week of events that will take a lot of time to prepare and be forgotten forever". Which I absolutely am in favor of.

    Tabard

    Bomb

    I really wonder how many people will switch over from Diablo to Mop and even more interesting how fast will they be back to Diablo cause they get bored
  • #11
    Guess we'll find out soon enough since MoP is out today.

    Mixed feelings. This is the first expansion I'm missing (quit back in January) and I admit do feel left out and kinda weird. At the same time, I know I hadn't really had fun in the game since leveling in WotLK. Nothing in MoP particular interested me, but I'm getting curious about the consensus among different groups of friends that pet battles are the apparently the most fun thing in a while.

    Anyone here playing? What do you think so far?
  • #13
    NAY for me.

    Got nothing against pandas: they were in the warcrafts games so np.

    it's like..how the hell we arrived here?

    I feel bad when I think I was killing demons and undeads in the prev years..

    I'm not playing, but I've been reading a bit about it lately out of curiosity. After running into a Collector's Edition in Walmart, I couldn't help but wonder what was up. A trip through the official forums proved to be typical, some people complaining about minor things, and the hyena's jumping at the posters throat.

    I was pretty interested in the pet battles out of everything, but I think I'd rather just play Pokemon (White 2 + Black 2 are right around the corner). Here's some of the pet battle game play, though.

    I just hopped on WoW for a bit to check out what I could without having MoP (no plans to purchase it).

    Pet battles are available without MoP. I did a few pet battles and it honestly just felt like I was playing Pokemon. It'd probably be pretty cool if I was into WoW still and it was something I did during downtime between dungeons or what-not. There are achievements to earn towards the pet battles, and like the video above there are random critters around the world to battle and capture.

    Its only major downfall is other players, who can swoop in and battle the critter you're going for (i.e. "kill stealing" in another form.) Not a big deal but a minor annoyance. Luckily they're on the mini map with a little green paw print, so you can easily find another potential battle.

    Your pets gain levels to earn new skills, as well as go towards achievements (i.e. level 10 pets above level 3, etc.) There are also "trainers" scattered around the world to go and battle. I can't really tell you how these work since the one I attempted to interact with was bugged. There's also the option to battle other players once you unlock all 3 of the pet slots (one unlocks with your first pet leveling up to 3, the other at pet level 5).

    Other than pet battles, I was oddly enough able to play a Pandaren. The only thing that was locked was the Panda class, leveling past 85, and the new 85-90 zones.

    Edit:

    The new character creation screen is pretty nice. Pets + Mounts and Achievements are shared across characters now. Which is pretty awesome I'll admit. No longer do I have to feel pinned to one character due to having that awesome mount I love.

    Edit 2:

    I've done a couple pet battles with other players. They're incredibly lame. Really boils down to luck with what pets you have, as opposed to strategy in the Pokemon games. It might be different with everyones pets at level 20 (pet level cap) but for now it's just disappointing.

    I say it's luck because people with Collectors Edition pets from previous expansions are incredibly overpowered. Cataclysms Deathy (or w/e his name is) has a move that can one shot your active pet. There are so many variations in pet types that it's luck of the draw on what you and your opponent have.

    Pets all level differently as well, along with different rarities of pets you capture. (Poor, Common, Uncommon, Rare). Even the Rare pets that I have caught haven't been a match to any CE pets or Blizzcon pets. My Fetish Shaman from the Diablo 3 CE seems to be a carry, since his spells later on look pretty good.

    Like I said this is just first impressions.. maybe the level 20 battles are more balanced.

    Mop lacks that WAR from warcraft it's just a boring expansion as a general ideea
    they could have implemented pandaria and also go berserk with a cool War ideea invasion etc..

    I recently started playing wow. I found wow complete pack for €35. Is it a good price? What generally you think you MOP? Is it worth to buy?
