Players will get to Pandaria via new quests from Orgrimmar and Stormwind. The quests are short and sweet to make sure players can get into the new continent as fast as possible. Initially, adventurers venture beyond the mists via gunships stationed in capital cities at level 85. There will be no conventional means of accessing Pandaria later such as ships or zeppelins, and will be linked to the rest of the world by portals leading to Jade Forest, that can be cast by a mage or be found in pandaren encampments in Stormwind City or Orgrimmar.

What a travesty. I remember the first time crossing through the Dark Portal, standing in awe of the demons battling. I loved the boat/zepplin rides to Northrend.

No surprise they're just gonna tele us there and not run any boats/zeps. It's not like this is an epic MMO RPG where you are part of a world. Just click the dungeon finder, and teleport to the content.

What a disgrace. Blizzard, you've lost it.

Take a look around. See anything new? Such as that huge Asian-style balloon that wasn't there during Cataclysm?

Maaaaybe there's pandas under it.

yes ...

Why no boats to travel from "Esatern Kingdom" to Pandaria?
or from Kalimdor, Northrend or from?
makes no sense ... this lack of choice

the shipping industry collapsed upon reaching Pandaria?

traveling in a boat or zeppelin is more entertaining

I remember traveling to Northrend even being level 66, I had no quests, no flying mount, but I felt like a discoverer ...
fleeing on horseback all,
and dying on every corner ... lol

I miss that for my other toons
