So, the Mists of Pandaria beta is underway, and, with no NDA, the information is flowing fast and free.
I was delighted by the new Druid forms and spell effects posted by Lissanna at Restokin. I want both the Orca glyph and the Stag glyph! I don’t want the Astral Form glyph, though — one of the reasons Kerisa went Balance is that I wanted to be a big fat feathery Moonkin!
I’ve looked at the new armor sets, both on MMO Champion and the Wowhead blog. The quest reward sets for all armor types look pretty cool. I’m glad we’ll be able to be stylish while we’re leveling! The Challenge Mode Druid set is nifty, the Shaman set is bizarre, and the Hunter set is awesome. Ketura needs to get her tail in gear and finish leveling to 85 before Mists launches, because I’m going to want to run Challenge modes with her for sure!
I’ve looked at the information about new Professions materials and recipes at Wowhead.
I’ve looked at the new Warlock pets on WoW Insider.
But I didn’t look at the creature/bestiary/spirits/gods/mounts or objects models at Wowhead — I want those to be mostly surprises, novel new things, when I play Mists myself. The glimpses I get from the MoP screenshots of the day will be sufficient.
I haven’t looked at the Monk animations — it’s enough to hear that others think they’re pretty cool.
And I absolutely don’t want to read about quests, storylines, lore, and the Pandaren starting experience. I already feel badly spoiled enough by Blizz revealing at the press event that the Alliance “White Pawn” storyline is about Anduin Wrynn. I want to be able to discover the story fresh and new by myself!
