Gaming is a lifestyle

A week in Pandaria

Evening peeps!

It’s a week since World of Warcraft: Mist of Pandaria was released and I can honestly say that I’m in love with everything! Blizzard really did an amazing job with this expansion, and it’s just as good (if not better) than The Burning Crusade.. Yes I said it, deal with it!

The pandas look awesome, and the quest lines are fun and not at all boring in any way (if you’ve done the raccoon quest with Socke you know what I’m talking about!). And then there is the landscape! Can’t say they did an amazing job all over Pandaria, but the Jade Forest, Kun Lai Summit and Vale of the Eternal Blossoms makes up for the lack of awesomeness in the other zones.

But one of the most epic moments in MoP so far was finding the Shrine of Fellowship! And now you’re wondering.. “Am I supposed to know what the hell that is?!” and yes.. you should! Maybe not by name, but if you’ve seen the opening cinematic or even the trailer on TV then you’ve seen when they fight and the panda (Chen Stormstout) fixes the Hammer thingie that the Orc broke!

And after a week of enjoying everything in the game, we finally get what we really want… New raid: Mogu’shan Vaults. Don’t know anything about this raid really, but the bosses look great and if the mechanics are anything like in the dungeons then it can hardly disappoint!

File:Mogu'shan Vaults loading screen.jpgI doubt we’re anywhere close to being geared for it, but that has really never stopped us! And as our dear Grim said (I changed it a little bit but all credit to Grim!):

We are totally undergeard
We do not know the tactics
We don’t even know where the raids are
But we are Viri, we do not need gear, we do not need tactics
We are strong, we are badass
We are awesome
We are Viri!

I wish I could stream the first raid, but I’m afraid that ain’t possible, so lets hope one of my guildies will do it!

But that’s about it for now, Mike is over and out!

  1. I’ve never been on a raid before :/ None of my characters are high enough level (my highest is 73). I should max one out I know, but I keep finding out that I’m playing my characters wrong (I constantly had the wrong gear) and then felt I had to start again from scratch!
    I haven’t really delved into the Cataclysm content yet, so I will be doing that first and then moving on to Pandaria a bit later. I am very much looking forward to it, as posts like yours show me there’s a lot to experience! 🙂

    • Depending on what you want to do, but I’d say the raiding is the best part in WoW! Max a character out! If you keep getting your gear out ask your guild or find the guides on the internet, it’s definitely worth it!
