Blizzard Entertainment has released a brand new video featuring game play footage featuring the newly introduced Monk class. The video was shot using the upcoming Mac World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria client. Check it out!
I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil
that looked horrible.
the animations were just, wow.
I don't understand the whole GW2 graphics are so great.. they are good but its a different style than WoW. I don't think GW2 is anything to write home about in the graphics department.
So obviously if you don't like the style of WoWs graphics you just won't like it. It isn't to say they are terrible they just aren't what you are wanting out of your game. I think graphics wise WoW is still one of the best, the colors and animations are above any other game and granted that is because of years of polish but its always been good.
If GW2 is so amazing, why are the hours played in a total freefall since September 3rd?
I bought the game. I honestly found it to be very uninspired, the gameplay extremely bland... with neither fun abilities nor any sense of progression after level 30.
I've played MoP for longer than I did GW2. It's actually fun and interesting to quest there.

You just summed up the way I feel about MoP.
Different strokes eh?

I would think that you are in the minority with that assessment.
Well I have to say that the actual gameplay of GW2 is much more fun than WoW. I have been playing both and in WoW you just kinda stand there if you are melee. There is no anticipating the mobs moves and dodging. Trying to out-maneuver a Mob is part of a true battle. WoW simply is "un-wow" after playing GW2.
I still am going to play MoP and GW2, but GW2 is a superior game when it comes to actual combat/gameplay.
Disclamer: WoW is still one of my all time favorites.
Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
Originally posted by mikuniman I know the game is dated but those combat animations are just bad. This has to be the first wow xpac since launch I passed on, after this vid I made the right decision.
agreed. First WoW expac I passed on, and by everything that I am hearing from my friends, I made the right decision.
...and what's with the big evil scaly rabbit?
I mean...what the fuck...?
so this is the "big" new expansion pack we all been waiting for ? ughhh
What is wrong with the graphic and that bloody giant rabbit , omfg, don't make me laugh.
We are in 2012 , i'm sorry to say but that graphic just looks terrible.
WoW is getting too old to keep up with the rest of the market.Worth not a penny from my pocket
best WoW expansion: Burning Crusade
best ranged class: mage
best melee class: paladin
best faction: horde
once you play with those two classes, the rest are going to be meh; after Burning Crusade, the following expansions are meh; the goblins should have been the neutral race, but Blizz decided that pandas are more suitable for that, so, oh well, for the Horde anyway.

Two weeks ago, I would have said maybe. Now, I'm pretty sure I'm not.
I just finished giving wow its 3rd and final chance cus the account was free on my end. My friends kept trying to tell me "you didn't get to the fun part yet".
Note: If a game is not fun within the first 27 hours (/played on one toon not several).... your so called "best game/mmo ever" isn't even mediocre.
The combat is soooooo boring and stale, the whole game just feels very very dated. It honestly feels like playing a free mmo, and I've played MANY free mmo's. The whole game is just an endless "carrot on a stick" (gear grind). Dont forget the fact that all the gear looks terrible and the game isnt fun enough to be worth the grind even if the gear was awesome. Not to mention the terrible graphics and animations. And i dont mean art style cus thats an opinion. I mean really low polygon count and really low res textures, thats numbers, you can't debate math. FFS the loading screens arent even the right resolution to fit your screen, not only that but most are low res and stretched so theyre blurry.
In trade chat I got hundreds of people to admit that they only play because their friends play or all the time they have invested in it, and that they wouldnt play if they had to start over from scratch without a linked account. News flash, if you wouldn't do it over again or alone, the game isn't really any good.

Well, my old WoW guild (I haven't played WoW for quite a time now, but I'm still active on the forums) mostly was pretty amazed by MoP. They were positively gushing. In a moment of weakness I snatched myself a free trial and tried out the Pandaren starting zone. Yes, that is included in the free trial.
After having played through it, I am utterly relieved that I neither purchased MoP nor spent money on game-time.
- It's the same old, same old to a T.
- The story-telling is as childish as Diablo3's. It tries to sound meaningful and grave, but only succeeds in lampshading itself. Somewhat.
- The worst moment is when you enter your new faction's capital for the first time. You have spent the last few hours exploring the home isle of the Pandaren. It's tranquil, peaceful. Every Pandaren gets along with each other, even those of different philosophies. You unite first the spirits of the island with the help of two diametrically opposed Pandaren (rash/active/heart, brazen, 'red' vs. tranquil/passive/mind, considerate, 'blue'. They share a mutual respect/affection for each other). You then unite Horde and Alliance to fight with you against a bigger evil and save the island.
...And then you join your faction. And the first thing you get told?
"Yeah, there are Pandaren that joined the other faction. You might know them as your childhood friends. Well, they're your mortal enemies now. If you refuse to fight them to the death, you commit High Treason. Welcome to the Alliance/Horde!".
And your accompanying Pandaren (the blue one for the Alliance, the red one presumably for the Horde) just nods and says: "of course" as if this was the most natural thing in the world.
And at that moment, I had just one thought: "You know what? Those people are ax-crazy. I'm packing up and going home."
Some people like Wow, some don't. Silly to argue about it. Fortunately I got to find out I did not like it in Beta.
One thing I could not do is play a Panda. I just thought that race looks so ridiculous in Wow, but I bet it will be popular in the east.
I will be willing to bet more than half the people who bought the expansion are not playing after the first month. I think finally Blizzard's ship is sinking, it will take awhile, but it is definitely on it's downward spiral.
