MEET A NEW – AND NEUTRAL – RACE IN WORLD OF WARCRAFT: MISTS OF PANDARIA
JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE CHANGES BELOW! 

This new expansion pack for the ever-popular MMO comes at a time when Alliance warships roam the seas and Horde armies thunder across Kalimdor. The tensions between these factions edge ever closer to erupting in a savage war that could consume all of Azeroth. And then… an uncharted island mysteriously appears. The ancient realm of Pandaria.

This land has been shrouded in fog for more than ten thousand years, and is uninvolved with – and unspoiled by – the war that has raged. Its rich forests and cloud-ringed mountains are home to a complex ecosystem of indigenous races and exotic creatures - including the enigmatic Pandaren.

For thousands of years, all but the bravest Pandaren explorers have chosen to remain hidden from the world, but as the aftermath of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is felt even in Pandaria, it is time for the Pandarens to rejoin the world, share the secrets of their extraordinary martial arts, and choose to allign themselves with the Alliance or the Horde.

 

New features in World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria:

New Playable Race - the Pandaren: World of Warcraft's first neutral race, will you decide to side with the Alliance or the Horde?

New Playable Class - Monk: Unlock the secrets of Pandaren martial arts and do battle as a damage dealer, healer, or tank.

Level Cap Increased to 90: Learn potent new spells and abilities while exploring uncharted zones and taking on challenging new content.

New Zones: Explore the lush Jade Forest, treacherous Kun-Lai Summit, and other exotic areas of Pandaria designed for high-level characters, and uncover the mystery of the Wandering Isle.

Scenarios: Join up with some friends to achieve a common goal, such as mounting a defense against invading monsters, in a flexible new type of PvE challenge.

Dungeon "Challenge" Modes: Master the ultimate 5-player time trial and earn prestige rewards in a new dungeon mode that will put your resolve and coordination to the test.

Pet Battles: Challenge other players’ companion pets with your own collection in a new tactical mini-game, and find out who's king or queen of the pint-sized battlefield

New Talent System: Customise your character to suit your play style with the newly overhauled and improved talent system.
