Hey everyone. After thought, I've decided to roll a mage to main in MoP. I would like to play as a panda, but am skeptical about it, because I know you can't use heirlooms in the starting zone, which I am worried will take a toll on my leveling time. How long did it take you guys to leave the panda starting zone and get to the looms? Many thanks.
I'm willing to bet that some of those quests are kinda fun and the heirlooms will add bonus experience, making you feel compelled to skip some of those quests and therefore making the questing process less-than-ideal.
If you run around, look at stuff, go exploring, take screenshots, and generally play the game, about 4-5 hours is more realistic. And there's a -lot- to see imo. But it doesn't seem that long at all.
it's been necroed a hundred times but in case anyone out there is wondering, and found this thread with google or something, using heirlooms will only make it take longer since the quests will go grey and not be tracked by default, leaving you wandering around trying to find the ones you need to do to progress
That's not true. I've leveled plenty of pandas w/ heirlooms and never got off track. The NPCs always will give you quests that direct you to the next area, even if they're grey.12/23/2015 02:23 PMPosted by Susiequsing heirlooms will only make it take longer since the quests will go grey and not be tracked by default, leaving you wandering around trying to find the ones you need to do to progress
