World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Trailers Showcase New Zones

THE BUZZ: Blizzard has released four new trailers for its upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Pandaria.

The areas are the new starting area the Wandering Isle, as well as the Jade Forest, the Valley of the Four Winds, and the improved Scarlet Monastery and Scholomance dungeons.

Wandering Isle, level 1-10

Separated from Pandaria for millennia, the Wandering Isle meanders the oceans of Azeroth. When the weather changes unexpectedly on the Isle and it begins erratically spiraling toward the Maelstrom, the elders at the Temple of Five Dawns request the aid of four elemental spirits to unravel the mystery. Heroes must figure out the cause of the land’s illness before the entire island plunges into the abyss!

The Jade Forest & Temple of the Jade Serpent, level 85-86

After a devastating naval battle, survivors from both the Horde and Alliance wash up onto the tree-lined shores of the Jade Forest. Surrounded by wilderness, they must form alliances with the natives if they wish to survive. Along the way, they will meet the pandaren… along with some of the greater powers that protect and shape Pandaria.

Valley of the Four Winds & Stormstout Brewery, level 86-88

A tranquil plain of lush farmland, bordered by dense mysterious jungles along the south and impassible mountains to the north. The valley is considered the “breadbasket” of Pandaria, but the year’s harvest is in jeopardy and a terrible malaise has overcome the pandaren that live along the coast. The valley is also the home of the legendary Stormstout Brewery, where Chen Stormstout and his niece Li Li hope to journey to discover the whereabouts of their long-lost ancestors.

EGM’s TAKE: There’s still a lot of fans uncertain about this latest expansion for World of Warcraft, with many voicing the opinion that Blizzard is running out of ideas. Pandas are a very weird choice for the World of Warcraft, I mean sure they will probably work and a lot of people will role one, but they just look a little out of place. The new areas look beautiful though as is expected from Blizzard. Our worry with the game is still how dated the graphics look, the longer the game goes the further behind it’s going to fall.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
