    Vale of Eternal Blossoms - Zone Preview

    Vale of Eternal Blossoms

    Vale of Eternal Blossoms is a new zone introduced in Mists of Pandaria.

    The ancient seat of the pandaren empire has been hidden for generations, shrouded in mists and walled-off by impassible mountains. The waters of the Vale are believed to have mystical powers... which has attracted the attention of ancient enemies as well as power-hungry factions within the Alliance and Horde. What secrets lie buried below this mystical font of power?

    No one really knows yet, it was just on the map they showed at Blizzcon.

    From the sound of the description and the layout the map it looks like this maybe the final level 89-90 zone
    I can stand the sight of worms,
    And look at microscopic germs,
    But Technicolor pachyderms,
    Is really too much for me.

    It seems like it's a max level zone, not for leveling.

    I smell Reliquary questlines. The prospect of continued blood elf presence and progression of the Reliquary's lore in the game pleases me.

    Oh god. That just gave me a horrible, horrible thought that this zone is going to be filled with Harrison Jones.

    Entry raids are usually not that big (Aside from Naxx). And neither Uld or ICC were entry raids. Oh and the raid itself can still be gigantic, despite the low boss count.

    Entry raid is no excuse to make a small raid. But I am looking forward to seeing this new place and I can probably assume I'll like it!

    Original Onyxia's Lair was an entry raid, if i remember correctly. And as far as I remember it had a total of one (1) boss. So that's a growth of x6.

    EDIT: I apparently can't multiply 1 into 6. XD

    There are usually entry raidS, and it's the same for mop, there will be 3 raids, this is one of them. Most likely we will get around 12 bosses total from the 3 raids.

    I actually kinda prefer that. Added some variation so you're not in a place with one aesthetic.

    Oh, please, please, no.

    That said: that image is kind of...golden. And bloomy, and I don't mean the flowering trees. But it reminds me a bit of a less-contrived version of Eversong, if that makes sense.

    Sounds likely. Also Blizzard said there will be a lot of underground content here, so the scale is deceiving.

    I looked and suddenly realized magical water sounds an awful lot like holy grail from Last Crusade.

    Blizzard when will you learn we dislike the gigantic pop culture ripoff zones!?
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    Judging from what little info we have about the zone, I don't think that it's going to be a joke/pop culture one like Uldum is.

    This is by no means an uncommon concept.
    Saying it's stolen from Indiana Jones is like saying the films also invented Nazis.
    Or that they invented the Holy Grail.
