MMO-Champion - Pandaren Gameplay Video, Theramore Destroyed, Free Diablo 3 12-Months Offer
Pandaren Blizzcon 2011 Gameplay Video
For those of you who couldn't attend Blizzcon, here is a short gameplay video of the Pandaren starting zone available at Blizzcon 2011. The quality isn't perfect but a few people risked their lives recording it.



Theramore to be destroyed by the Horde in 5.0?
It seems that Theramore will be destroyed by the Horde in the pre-Mists of Pandaria world events, the info was revealed to a couple of taiwanese websites attending a press event with Tom Chilton. Translation from Curll on ScrollsOfLore.
聯盟部落的對立,要如何去強調?
整個戰爭會從潘達利亞的迷霧資料片上市前會啟動世界事件,來強化 聯盟根部落的戰鬥,塞拉摩這城市摧毀讓聯盟 高層非常暴怒,也會以此為契機強化這兩方的戰鬥,未來整個戰鬥會 蔓延在潘達利亞大陸上,部落與聯盟也會在上 面發動許多的戰鬥以及與熊貓人的互動。

Here's the original quote. Let me translate:
The whole war will be ignited during the world event which leading the game into Mist of Pandaria. Theramore will be destroyed and the leaders of Alliance were outrageous at this matter and completely devote themselves into the war, which reach its peak on the continent of Pandaria. The Horde and the Alliance literally fought on the homeland of Pandaria, which pissed the pandarens off.

部落跟聯盟都很喜歡去殺對方的首領,那熊貓人的首領怎麼算?
在潘達利亞大陸上的 npc 多是中立角色,一部分的熊貓人覺得部落跟聯盟帶來厄運,並對它們 帶有敵意,玩家玩的熊貓人是早已脫離潘達利 亞的熊貓人,在等級達到之後選擇加入陣營,所以是沒有首領可以去 扁的。
Most of the pandarens are neutral characters. And some of them thought the Horde and the Alliance only brought doom to their beloved homeland, and have enmity against both factions. The players pandarens are in a different group. They departed Pandaria long ago and choose their own path. They choose their own faction when level 10, so they don't have a faction leader.

Free Diablo 3 and 12-Months WoW Subscription Plan
We covered that a little during the opening ceremony but didn't really have time to clarify because of all the new MoP info raining down on us. A few important points:


  • The Tyrael's Charger mount will be added in Patch 4.3 and is basically going to be available in a few weeks.
  • This is a 12-months commitment, but you can keep paying on a monthly basis.
  • If you decide to purchase the Diablo III Collector's Edition when it's available, and then choose to add your Collector's Edition license key to the Battle.net account associated with your existing World of Warcraft Annual Pass promotion, you will receive all of the benefits associated with the Collector's Edition, plus receive four months of World of Warcraft game time which is eligible towards your 12-month subscription commitment.

For a limited time only, players who make a 12-month subscription commitment to World of Warcraft through the WoW Annual Pass will receive the following epic rewards:


  • Diablo III FREE – Download the digital version via Battle.net for free when the game launches early next year. This is the full game, not a trial edition.
  • Tyrael’s Charger WoW Flying Mount – Ride for the Archangel of Justice on all current and future characters on a single World of Warcraft account. Tyrael’s Charger will arrive via in-game mail with the upcoming launch of patch 4.3.
  • Access to the Next WoW Expansion Beta Test – Get a guaranteed spot in the beta test for the next World of Warcraft expansion (at a time to be announced in the future).
    If you buy the Collector's Edition, you will also get the Fetish Shaman's Spear.

You can pay for the WoW Annual Pass on a monthly basis at $14.99 per month or according to the billing plan of your choice. To participate, you must be 18 or older, have a valid credit card, and have registered a full version of World of Warcraft on or before October 18, 2011.

Sign up for the World of Warcraft Annual Pass here, and then keep an eye on the World of Warcraft community site or the Diablo III community site for future announcements regarding the launch dates of these bonuses.

For more information on this offer, including eligibility requirements and details on how the World of Warcraft Annual Pass applies to players who plan to purchase the Diablo III: Collector’s Edition, please read the full FAQ.
This is a pretty good deal for anyone playing WoW, especially since the time between the last patch of Cataclysm and the beginning of Mists of Pandaria will probably much shorter than it was for WotLK/Cataclysm.





Probably not in the final version of the game
You have to admit, those are pretty good cupcakes. (Source Mike Schramm)

    "We'll keep trying!" Expansion looks promising and the Diablo promotion looks good, might have to scoop that on up.

    So many different quotes from Blizzard Staff in the scroll...
    Best one is the Alliance motto suggested by Metzen, in the past.

    lol at horde/ally thing at the end >.< already subbed for 12 months For anyone who does not no the "cancel subscription" button on your battle.net will end up greyed out and when you hover over it your get a little msg saying your signed up to a deal. Basicly if you decide to remove your card your end up getting banned and most likely something via the post telling you to pay it, its a contract after-all think of it like a 12 month phone contract! If you plan on playing for 12 months and want to try diablo and the beta its well worth it imo. Free mount is nice also but everyone on the server will have that mount who is 18+ so dont think your going to look cool riding it about. It will be as cool as a celestial steed or winged guardian!

    I can imagine the rage Alliance will dish out with Theremore being destroyed, I'm looking forward to hopefully taking part in that, they did try and capture my Warchief after all!

    Oh wow, more Horde favoritism. What a surprise. Ally can't destroy Stonard in SoS because of the mage port, but suddenly it's a non-issue when flipped around. I bet Jaina survives, and continues to serve as a Horde sympathizer.

    Male panda is just so disturbingly ugly. Pandas should always be able to wear a gigantic hat to cover their ugly faces. Female panda will be even worse.... "Stop QQ u faggot, dont play panda then, hater!" Of course I wont play some dumb panda, but I know that one day I'll get ganked by a male panda wearing a pink topknot. All gnomes in the world wont be able to generate as much rage as 1 panda can.

    What's most likely going to happen, IMO, is that Theramore will be destroyed, which will prompt Kul Tiras into joining the Alliance. Then Kul Tiras will rebuild Theramore as their new seat of power in Kalimdor, with a much more powerful military force.

    "and yell catchy slogans"

    Sir, go read it again.

    They are laughing at us, not with us.

    Also, the new ally/horde logos are fabulous. Someone make a sig.

    No strings as long as you always pay at the end of the month or bye bye everything :P

    You keep paying monthly, or every 3 or 6 months if you prefer. It just means you can't cancel your subscription for 12 months. If you are pretty sure you'd keep playing during that time anyway, it's a good deal.

    yes, exept if you break the deal and suddenly stop paying during that 12month period you will be sued, much likely if you dont pay your internet or electrical bill.
