    It's pretty fun however if you have a direct x 11 system be prepared to play it in 9 instead of 11 , because there's some issue with MOP that affects the video graphics driver and causes the game to crash, in this day and age this is utter bullshit , we spend hundreds even thousands of dollars for what? To get tons of crashes left right and center? I wish these companies would get their act straight.

    Sorry for the rant but take my rant as a warning, and yes you need to activate your old account or get a scroll.

    I was crashing and hard locking I dropped to directx 9 and also reduced the forground thing to a third someone advised on the forums to do that. I was really having problems with my geforce GTX 580 . After I did that touch wood it worked.

    Guys, there is such thing as staying on topic, the op didn't ask anything about Direct X, stop going on about it.

    If you never take your 10 days free trial for Cataclysm, you can try the panda with it and their starter zone, but you cant choose the monk class.

    Just go to your battle. net account and activate the trial.

    Any MoP content has dx 11 problems which didn't exist pre MoP so change to dx 9.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    use the Starter edition (free for first 20 levels)

    roll a panda on the mystic isles -- that will help give you an idea
