    Valley of the Four Winds - Zone Preview

    Valley of the Four Winds

    Valley of the Four Winds is a new zone implemented on the island of Pandaria.

    A tranquil plain of lush farmland, bordered by dense mysterious jungles along the south and impassible mountains to the north. The valley is considered the "breadbasket" of Pandaria, but the year’s harvest is in jeopardy and a terrible malaise has overcome the Pandaren that live along the coast. The valley is also the home of the legendary Stormstout Brewery, where Chen Stormstout and his niece Li Li hope to journey to discover the whereabouts of their long-lost ancestors.


    • Two zones for the price of one! This zone is huge, the whole north side of the zone is Pandaren farmlands, the south is a coastal jungle.
    • You will get to choose between the north side and the south side when you arrive. You can go back and switch side if you want the other quests.
    • This is where you will have your first interaction with the Mantids, they broke through the wall and are now attacking Pandarens villages.
    • This is a level 86-87 zone.
    • The dungeon of this zone is Stormstout Brewery.

    I'm still bothered by the untextured buildings on the background. Looks good though.

    I think he meant the fact that the textures haven't been implemented are troubling due to the fact that Mists should release around summertime.

    So do we outlaw any more use of the word "Four" and "Wind"? Because this zone clearly has nothing to do at all design wise to anything "Four winds" in Cataclysm.

    Go bitch about reused words somewhere else.

    Remember the Skywall instances back during the Cata beta? They weren't skinned for the longest of times.

    I'm guessing they don't have anything in common except for the name, since we kinda wiped out the whole air elemental leadership. But who knows.

    The more I go over Mist of Panderia the more it gives me hope that Blizzard learned their lesson not my fave zone but still stunning. Kun Lai summit = storm peaks

    It's too bad they didn't do more with those instances. seriously some of the more beautiful environments in WoW. Stonecore too.

    It was really upsetting not having a raid within those two styles.

    Well, he needs to realize that the timeline isn't troubling, considering that video was released back in October.

    '

    well, except for throne of the four winds... but I get what you mean.

    anyway, this zone looks kind of like a mash-up between sholazar, what with the coastal jungle, and nagrand, what with the inland plains.

    Personally, I was hoping the "dark jungle" would get an entire zone to itself, but this looks nice too.

    The four winds are winds which come from from the north, south, east and west, the four main directions. I assumed that is where they got the name for the raid.
    I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.

    Same reason why I think they're unrelated in anything other than the name. But again, it's Blizzard. So we can't really know until they release the beta.
