Back to World of Warcraft – Mists of Pandaria
It’s been more than a year since I last logged onto my World of Warcraft account. Saturday night I finally got around to install the latest expansion, Mists of Pandaria.
The next morning, after doing my routine, checking the DayZ servers, I activated my account and started to play.
Sunday, father’s day morning, a good cup of coffee and a newly installed Mists of Panderia, I was good to go. The first impressions were nothing like WoW, it looked the same, it even felt the same but something was different. I quested for a while and really enjoyed it. I chatted with old friend and quested some more. It has always been and always will be the social aspect that drives people to online gaming.
It was really fun and entertaining, but it just didn’t feel the same anymore. This world has nothing to do with slaying dragons and fighting orcs (if you are alliance that is). It was cute, pretty and somewhat candy like. Which isn’t a bad thing in a game if that’s what you are looking for.
Mists is a well-made expansion and I can imagine people having lots of fun with it for hours.
After I leveled my little Panda to level 12 (*ding*), I had enough. The starting quests were fun, but I somehow felt I’ve done them before and I’m not going to do the Westfall quests for the 20th time. The game was good until the part where Pandaria meets Stormwind. But then again it is the high level content that counts. And that I have yet to discover.
I will give it another chance in the high levels (85-90). Going to dust off my warrior and see how the new talent trees and abilities work.
But that will be another story.
