Mists of Pandaria and...it's point?
06/27/2012 09:55 AMPosted by RainydaysI'm not trying to rant so don't take this as a hate thread, but I need a question answered...what's the point of pandaria? The rest of the expansions made sense whether you liked them or not...started in vanilla it was after WC3 if you played that...then the dark portal opened so we had to go back there to fight them...then the scourge became an even bigger issue so we fought them in lich king, all of these tied together with the original stories from warcraft. Even cataclysm, even though it's not my favorite kind of makes sense in a way story wise...but then pandaria, I just don't understand how that made sense in any of the story when their main goal was to be an april fools joke not a piece of lore...anyone care to enlighten me?
The point is a large portion of the playerbase has been asking for pandaren as a playable race since wow was released. They created all the lore for it, and it looks like it will be a wonderful expansion :).

Since MoP has been in development since Wrath when subs were still growing...no.

MoP is addressing the center piece of lore in Warcraft...War.
But anyway, they seem to be doing a good job of creating the lore behind them and everything so I'm ok with it. In fact I feel like they have more solid lore than Draenei now.
With the cataclysm, the shrouds that kept pandaria separate dissipated and the horde and alliance are both trying to recover and there is a new island with so many resources that they would like to control. This leads to the inevitable clash of Horde vs Alliance.
