Patch 5.2 introduced some quirky world details like a
Fire Kitty disguise

Check out our
list of 5.2 daily quests
for the two new Thunder Isle factions!
There is a weekly quest,
Древний хранитель ключей

Ключ от дворца Лэй Шэня

There are also randomly-spawning treasure chests,
Trove of the Thunder King
, which can contain a
Ритуальный камень Шань'цзэ

Completing a day's worth of dailies for your faction rewards you with
Ларец Похитителей Солнца

Pet Battles: Wild Battle Pets by Zone

07.10.2012 в 14:07
Capturing wild battle pets is a new way to obtain companion pets in Mists of Pandaria, and it is one of the primary ways of acquiring pets for your pet battle team.
Wild battle pets can be tracked on your minimap: you can have your team fight them for experience, or capture one at low health to add it to your collection. Pet families have strengths and weaknesses against other types, so choose your opponents wisely. There are different versions of each pet--some with more stats than others--so you could get lucky and end up capturing a really strong version! There's also many
achievements for capturing wild battle pets
We've made tables below of all the wild battle pets, organized by continent and color-coded by type. With this chart, you can see what pets are unique to various zones, and also which pet types are pretty scarce--Dragonkin and Mechanical especially. All the data was taken from our
interactive battle pet map

Today's a busy day for Blizzard! They're having a WoW Developer Reddit AMA at 5:30 PM PDT today, and they also just posted Patch 5.0.5 notes (mainly tooltip and bug fixes) and a preview of The Jade Forest, including screenshots and music samples!
It’s been two weeks since <a href="
class="bml-link-url2">patch 5.0.4</a> was released and, with only two weeks to go until Mists of Pandaria takes the world by storm, we feel that this is the perfect time to give you access to the World of Warcraft development team. Tomorrow, Tuesday, September 11 beginning at 5:30 p.m. PDT, we’ll be conducting a live developer “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) on <a href="
class="bml-link-url2">/r/WoW</a>. I’ll be on-hand to host the chat and will have Lead Systems Designer Greg Street, Lead Quest Designer Dave Kosak, Lead Encounter Designer Ion Hazzikostas, and Game Director Tom Chilton available to field your questions. <br/><br/>We’ll spend at least an hour working to answer everything possible.

The faction hubs are very elaborate--Blizzard said they wanted them to make Dalaran look simple in comparison, and they achieved that! The faction hubs have all the amenities of major cities, as well as floors dedicated to introducing players to the level-90 Pandaren factions and scenarios with breadcrumb quests.
Between the Alliance and Horde settlements is Mogu'Shan Palace, the heart of the original Mogu empire. There are two points of interest here: the Lorewalkers and Mogu'Shan Palace, a 5-player dungeon.

The Pandaren generally live on the other side of the Great Wall, but the mantid have burst through their defenses a hundred years early. The Pandaren have no other choice but to bravely enter Townlong and investigate the majestic empire of the Mantids--while also dealing with the vicious Yaungol, enraged by the Mantid's attacks on their territory.

Cross-Realm Zones Introduced

10.05.2012 в 23:00
With the latest beta patch, we’ve introduced Cross-Realm Zones for testing.
During the initial phase of testing we will be sharing the following zones between the available beta realms: Northern Barrens, Ashenvale, Azshara, Darkshore, Westfall, and Silithus. We are also able to split over-populated zones and will be testing this new technology on the Pandaren starting area (turtle zone).
For beta testing purposes, we will be matching up all realm types whether they are PvP or PvE. This is different than what we plan to do for the live realms, however. For the live realms we will be matching realm types: PvP with PvP, PvE with PvE, RP-PvP with RP-PvP, and RP-PvE with RP-PvE.
As always, we plan to keep an eye on constructive feedback while in testing of this new technology.
For more information on Cross-Realm sharing, please read the FAQ below:
Q. Why cross-realm zones?
For many years now, the significant majority of the player population online at any given time has consisted mostly of characters at or near the level cap. This has resulted in an environment where characters that are leveling up experience a world

Kun-Lai is different from the other zones in that there's a ton of scenic variety between the quest hubs, from snowy mountains to forests. Lore-wise, there's something for everyone with the invasion of the Zandalari, Yaungol attacks, the return of the Mogu, Pandaren monasteries, and the threat of the Sha.

While some of the quests do take players back into Valley, Krasarang has a distinctive look and unique quest sequences involving the spirituality of the Red Crane and destructive presence of the Sha.

World of Warcraft®: Mists of Pandaria™
March 2012 Media Event FAQ
Q: What is
World of Warcraft®: Mists of Pandaria™
Escalating tensions between the Alliance and Horde have broken out into open warfare. The roar of cannons blacken the sky while naval engagements around the globe fill the seas with blood. As the clash of mortal armies spins the world into chaos, a continent -- once shielded by impenetrable mists -- suddenly manifests itself in the southern oceans. There’s no question that this resource-rich new land will be at the center of a global conflict. Will the Mists of Pandaria part to reveal Azeroth’s salvation? Or will this new battlefield become the flashpoint that pushes the Alliance and Horde over the brink into
Frostbitten: Guide to All Rares, Part 2

We covered a number of rare spawns in
Beyond Bloody Rare: A Guide to Rares
last year, but we found even more fun ones we wanted to share with you!
While some rares drop a random assortment of greens, a fair amount have specific loot associated with them--some for transmog, some just for status or bank alts. Rares have a ton of personality with their unique models and names, usually after pop-culture references, so it's fun when their loot has some humor as well. We scanned all the rares in the database to see which ones had anything notable!
In this guide, we've provided mouseover images of the rares, maps, and links to any unique loot drops.
In the previous guide, we covered: rares for achievements, hunter tames, notably-named ones from classic instances and zones, and Cataclysm rares.
A note on droprates: many of these mobs had their levels and loot tables adjusted in Cataclysm. Drops that were nearly guaranteed from mobs are now extremely rare. If the loot's been rescaled for Cataclysm though to match a mob's new level, chances are it still exists in game--as several users have reported. If an item's level doesn't match a mob's l
