    While I loved Ulduar, and would kill to have it back. I honestly find it kinda sad that when they say they're bringing back some ulduar flavor... they literally meant the same layout.

    That isn't a bad thing.

    This sure looks like a Panda version of Ulduar :E not a bad thing though as long as the bosses are good

    Big surprise there is that they specified a (rough) date. It's not like Blizzard to say "early January", it's always "Soon!"

    EDIT: Wow, so many people in this thread who cannot read and think the actual patch is coming in Jan, rather than the PTR (which can be up for over 2 months before the patch goes live).

    Did WoW move onto a patch release schedule that's the same as Guild Wars 2? What is this with a patch almost every month? o.0

    'is risen' is fine too, although you'd be unlikely to find it outside of plays, literature etc.

    we pretty much all expected it to be the Thunder King, but dam he has an impressive palace from that viewpoint.

    getting me all excited about it

    I think one of wow's biggest problems is zone fatigue and visual fatigue. I hope they have some really novel looking stuff going on, because reusing the same assets and architecture and the same basic models is going to really hurt this content. Time will tell.

    hmhh, I don't like the Thunder King. Lame lore. Hopefully the raid will make it more interesting than the quest lines so far.

    The very look of the raid instance has that Shadow of ulduar effect.It truly looks like the pandaria version of ulduar.. and absolutely LOVING idea of the return of 1 big raid with many bosses.
    REALLY REALLY hope the boss mechanics and the feel of the whole place (Even the music inside matters) delivers.Real high expectations now !
