Re: [MoP] Beta In-Game Screenshots

Yep, same old grind from 10 to 85 for a panda as you are use to. Maybe something will change to make it faster between 10 and 85. Oh, but wait. There's more. 85 - 90. Can't forget about that. Then there is the entire gear reset the second you get your first green in the expansion.

Damn, that sucks. I mean, with BC, we got Outland, with Lich, we got Nothrend, with Cata we got the whole middle zones filled in, as well as added places on the mainlands......

With THIS...... we get a start zone located within one of the Cata zones? Really? That's IT? Shit, this is almost a patch day update, not an expansion. Sure, the graphics get a little update to them for the characters, but that's cosmetic, and also could be easily delivered in a weekly update. (which it will be anyway prior to launch I'm sure) I just hope there's a lot more to come.

The starter zone is not actually inside one of the Cataclysm zones. The Wandering Isle wanders because, well, I'm not going to spoil it for anyone who doesn't know.

Also, it's a beta. Stuff isn't finished. It's amazing how many people are complaining about being capped at 86, one new zone only. Every. Five. Minutes. Oh, also the lack of pandaren mounts, too.

We'll see more as it gets finished.

Yep, there sure are a bunch of whiny bitches in the beta. Isn't it every 3 minutes that someone has to tell someone to turn their video settings down?

I was playing the beta this weekend. Just fooling around on my lock did a couple instances and a bunch of wpvp in dawn blossom. Pretty fun.
I was kinda surprised how few people are playing the beta you would think with over 500k eligible and only 4 realms they would be packed.
On gilneas horde there was only like 250 people on yesterday around 5 pm est. and lost isle only had around 700 the majority being monks. I guess the buggy quests could have something to do with it - but I figured more people would be on just messing with there specs. It's wierd how more people seem to be on my live realm than on the beta

I think most people don't see many changes in the upcoming expansion. As a result, more of them are focused on clearing out bank space and making gold or leveling up alts to prepare for the new release. I know that is what I am doing. Might as well make sure all my professions are maxed and try to get my characters to 85 to prep for the release.

Too bad if you grind your Panda monk from 1-90 to have a character reset or more during the beta and lose it all, well at least you will know your new abilities now by heart..

Did they fix the changing specs bug yet? I want to try my Hunter BM/Surv, my copied character had Surv/MM, when I logged I could only change from Surv to BM and can't get rid of MM at all.

I liked the new RFC dungeon..

Yeah, I rolled a panda sat. and it was a madhouse at the start, pile o pandas, and you couldn't get to the master to start your quests.

Eventually, through endless clicking, I was able to start my journey, and in short order finished through to "choose your faction". I chose alliance, and now am sitting in Stormwind. Is that it?

I mean, I realize this is beta, and changes will be sure to come to some extent, but seriously, THAT'S an expansion? 2-3 hours of questing to pop 12 or so levels, and then it's the same ol grind? Please tell me they plan to expand on this as far as places to go, etc.

I like the look of the character creation screen, even older toons get a facelift. Nice touches.

Sounds like every other expansion with new races. New starting zone for the new race, then a new continent/world/area for the levelling towards the new level cap.

More of a bump back to the top.

Anyone still in the beta or are we all doing the D3 thing at this time?

I kind of hung up my 87 mage since D3 and the arena pass tournament took up a lot of my gaming time.

If anyone has shots of the later zones I'd be interested in seeing them, and so would a few others I'd imagine.

yeah, I pretty much only log to get the latest patch builds, last night was 760MB or something added..

Tempted to get my 87 to 90, but that's a TON of XP, I have the 1.5 rested levels XP most of the time.
