Valley of the Four Winds Zone Preview
Important - The zone is incomplete and not intended to be played through yet. This preview represents unfinished work and will see significant changes the future. There are many placeholders and missing mobs in the zone.

One of the more interesting NPCs that we came across was Farmer Fung, who may be associated with the new Tillers daily quest farm. Jogu the drunk appears to sell tips on tomorrow's crops for 10 gold. We even came across Hemet Nesingwary and Hemet Nesingwary Jr!





















New Quest Icons
Mists of Pandaria brought us some small improvements to make questing less frustrating. Quests which require you to speak to an NPC or interact with an object now have nice icons above them and on the minimap, making them easier to spot.


Quest icons also appear on both the Zone Map and World Map in a limted radius around you, making it easier for you to find the next quest. This will be especially helpful for those of you who want to complete The Loremaster achievements!



New Pandaren Premade Characters
Following up to the level 85 Monk premade characters added recently, we now have level 85 Pandaren premades for various classes.

    would help if they actually fixed the quest so you could complete the gather ones and move on to test other things.

    I'll see the game as it should be when it's released. Don't see the point in seeing it sooner.

    They need to implement the world map quest marks EVERYWHERE and not just in a short radius...

I'm guessing special limited content access beta servers for AP owners, which explains why we can't ticket bugs in game, and don't receive survey requests etc, etc as well as the fact that we don't have access to new content that is being released and previewed on fan sites. My little QQ, oh well. At least I made it in during one of the later waves, so I am still seeing some of the new cool stuff.

    Sod the stats look at the stupid name: "5.0 Dungeon - Levelup - Stormstout Brewery - Boss 3 Loot 1 - Agi Gun" no way am I playing a game with item names like that.

    It's Beta. Grow up. Number's aren't finalised yet. Good god, literally anything to complain about...

    Beta is actually the best time to address things that need to change. Otherwise, how would anyone know to change them before it goes live? So what do you think the purpose of beta is if not to report what you believe to be errors?

    And to be honest, I think the DPS on the weapon is likely going to be close to that for live. As I'm writing this I noted two of the items I got from Jade Temple, which were previously ""5.0 Dungeon - Levelup - The Jade Temple - Boss x Loot x - Agi xxx" were just changed from AiL 425 to AiL 410 and have real names now. The DPS for my 410 gun is 2,005, so Brewery will probably be somewhere between 410 and 425 or 2000 and 2300 DPS on the final version.

    Firebelcher Hand Cannon is the gun with 2005 DPS
    Hopecrusher Gauntlets. which have 408 agi/611 stam

    These videos and screenshots were most likely just taken while exploiting the no mans land debuff. I was doing it myself until a Admin laid down the law and would ban anyone who got into the zone and dungeon.
