How about that new expansion. Love the game mechanic concepts, hate that its gonna be based around Pandas.
Who can take pandas seriously?
Anyone else want to add in?

I think Mists of Pandaria will be better than expected (and judging from the feedback, expectations will be low so it won't be hard to overachieve).
The new continent looks like it will be quite gorgeous to go through and it's a new thematic direction in terms of artwork (major eastern influences which could translate quite well, would like to see some samurai plate tier sets).
The emphasis on horde vs. alliance should somewhat appease PVPers (especially if they make some type of world PVP relevant again).
The new talent trees with talents available to all specs and the ability to switch them out like glyphs will be interesting and provides some tactical choices. There will be "best" trees overall for each role but those could still be altered through encounter design.
In a game with snake people, spacegoats, and moonkin I just can't bag on the Pandaren without feeling a little hypocritical so I won't. Blizz should do themselves a favor and not make them very "kung-fu Panda" like. Inb4 all the people "educating" me that Pandaren came first, I know, but blizzard could use the jack black movies to jumpstart subs (let's hope not).
I'm cautiously optimistic.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
