OP  8/25/13 6:57:02 PM#1

Blizzard has announced that the next World of Warcraft patch will be released in early September. Called Siege of Orgimmar, it is a major step forward in the lore of the game as we head to the inevitable next expansion. In our latest WoW Factor, we take a look at the patch to v5.4. See how it's all developed over time and then discuss the upcoming patch in the comments.

Looking through various community sites and their forums, I seem to frequently come across posts by players who are looking to venture into Pandaria for the first time or who may be looking to return after several months away. These players sometimes comment on being overwhelmed with the amount of content that has been released since Mists shipped last September. So, this week on the WoW Factor we are going to take a retrospective look on the Mists of Pandaria expansion - a highlight reel for some of the bigger additions we have seen so far.

Lore-Wise, it's shows about the growing conflict between the horde and the alliance that started during the Cataclyism and the war itself reached upon the misty continent of pandaria, which was hidden during the sundering.  The discovery turned nothing more for a battlefield between horde and alliance until they discovered something monstrious in the land, is that the land turn emotion into a living being called "sha" and they possessed the person who suffers from that emotion, anger, doubt, hatred, violence, any negative emotions will appear and cause havok.

That's not all, you learn about the various of races that exist in pandaria and the lore that's is hidden within pandaria that happens during the times when the burning crusade and the lich king days, you find ancient things, and if you took a look at the latest trailer of the 5.4 patch, you get a clear understand of what happened. Gorrosh gone insane and you have to put him down, he done untold devestation upon everyone, both horde and alliance alike, and wherever he walks, destruction unfolds... Not only that, you got to put down another old god, just like yagg - saron in ulduar... and it appears it controlled the emotions of gorrosh.

Rumors are curculating the future of world of warcraft already since the latest news of the new trademark registration by blizzard called "The Dark Below" and in one of the dungeons in cataclyism, Ozumet in Throne of the Tides, kidnapped Neptalon, did you noticed the title of Ozumet is named "The Dark Below"?  That has a meaning of the future that we may face... more nagas? a revisit to outland? if possible, The sunwell has been rumored of newer activities, and you know what I think? Mal'Ganis and Sargaras appears when they been incognito since Wrath.

Wow has already started to run into the same issues Everquest had by having too many expansions....The further it goes the worse the lore gets.....Then again, I guess fighting pandas is a pretty good sign of that already.

Pandaren were in the lore before WoW was even made. They're in Warcraft 3. They should have been a launch race instead of gnomes. Or at the very least, in BC instead of Draenei.

Meh I wont return to wow until they have updated the human(and all other old races) textures. They are so freaking old and outdated I dont understand how people accept this, especially RPers.

I believe in life before death... So dont forget to enjoy it while you still can.

I dont see how fighting pandas would be worse then trying to kill cows that walk on 2 hooves...

 

people still screaming that the pandas dont fit in blizzards world dont get it, where the Tauren where the perfect race for the native american culture, the pandas where the best pick for eastern asia..

 

i was recently back in WoW for a ten day trial, and despite all the dumbing down, the blizzard culture created in this world still stands out....

 

so lets go f2p with some new progression servers and ill join tomorrow.... TESO, EQN and Wildstar ae still lightyears away... This would be the perfect moment for them to go f2p

Their xpacs and updates seem really slow.  It may not be true, but it feels that way to me.

I don't mind the Pandaran and at least they seem to have some idea where they're going.  That's a lot more than some publishers, even when the lore roadmap is spelled out for them, like Turbine.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

Just reading through some of the comments, some of you would have an absolute blast if you just met the right group to hang out with. I would recommend you keep searching the right group is out there. I have met some of the worst and the best, they are scattered throughout, but they are there.

With a title like this I almost thought that 'Carry On My Wayward Son' would start playing right after I read it, lol.

Waiting for CoreCraft...

5.4 looks like a very good patch. But still, not enough for me to resub. I'll wait to see what the next expansion has to offer.

My biggest beef with WoW is the lack of skills customization (yes, I know hardcore raiders always boil down to ultimate builds, but I was in the camp of trying odd mixtures of talents just because it was fun, not because it was the bestest) and the normalization of the pets (yes, I was a hunter). Once Bliz got rid of the talent trees for characters and made the only differences between pets cosmetic, I left. The overall systems dumbing down is really what's done it in for me.

I make spreadsheets at work - I don't want to make them for the games I play.

I left the game in patch 5.2, but the trailer for 5.4 has brought me back. Miss my Boomkin a lot and SWTOR did nothing for me. 

I am excited about the Dark Below news (if it is true and if it has anything to do with WOW and not D3), i love the idea of an underground type expansion like LOTRO Moria, I hope to god it isn't another underwater expansion tho :/

ps. For anyone who dose not know what I am talking about:

I'm focusing all my gaming time into Diablo 3. But now........NO. NO. I must stay the course. STAY THE COURSE.

Feel like trying Planetside 2? Get a headstart with the starter kit!

I resubbed about a week ago after being away for about 2 years and I must say that I really like Pandaria. I did like the starter area a great deal, nice flow of quests and looking really beautiful. The first dungeons I did (Jade temple and the Brewery) seemed a bit on the easy side compared to the past but I know there are heroic versions so i'll wait for those.

Not sure how long I'll stay since only one of my old friends still plays occasionally and everyone else seems so settled in it's hard to find a good guild.

Guess you did not know pandas were part of wow lore loooong before Kunfu Panda movie/cartoon come out.

Despite I have preffered Wotlk so far as expansion, Cata and MOP are great expansions. Just they have ruined end game with Cata for players that have jobs and other things to do. This is my only complain. And "dumbing" down game to some degreee. But overall more pros then cons.
