Mists of Pandaria News, and Patch 4.3.2 Info

Next month, lucky members of the press will get a sneak peek at Mists of Pandaria. The upcoming WoW expansion pack is set to bring a glut of new raids, bosses, armor sets, quests, trinkets and enough WoW gold to sate even the most ardent adventurer’s hunger.

According to Blizzard:

“Since the announcement of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria at BlizzCon 2011, we’ve been hard at work on all of the new game features, environments, dungeons, and other content that awaits adventurers. Today, we’re inviting members of the press worldwide to get an updated sneak peek and some hands-on time with the latest version of World of Warcraft’s fourth expansion at an event taking place March 13 – 15.”

For three days those lucky press peepz will get to test out, drool over and get their greasy gamer hands all over Pandaria. I’d trade my left arm (ok, maybe just a pinkie) and a sack-full of cheap WoW gold to get in on that action!

Sidenote: Am I the only one who thinks the names are kinda hokey? The new continent, Pandaria is home to a new playable race, the Pandarens, which are, gosh, pandas! It’s like Harry’s school being called “Wizardia” instead of Hogwarts; it’s obvious and dare I say it, kind of lazy and unimaginative. Having said all that, I wish I wish I wish I were invited to that press event. (No really, that sack of cheap WoW gold is yours, Blizz, for an invite!

In other WoW news, Patch 4.3.2 is now live on all realms, with some pleasantly unexpected fixes. An unintended consequence of Patch 4.3 prevented druids leaving flight form from performing their trademark graceful arcs over mountainsides. Instead, they dropped straight down as soon as they left flight form, hitting the earth like a ton of WoW gold falling from the sky. But now patch 4.3.2 has corrected that and druids can go back to enjoying the aerodynamics of Newtonian physics. All’s well that ends well.

More news soon. In the meantime, keep your friends close and your WoW gold closer.
