    /facepalm. You wont be able to play pandaran before MOP releases. You will not be able to play Gnome hunter.. You will be able to play Bloodelf Worgen ect. With only a classic account. That is all. About time really.

    Pandaren will be available to play regardless of expansion, and the monk will be released for players WITH MoP following September 25th
    Pretty much this, guys you need to read it again.

    It basically means every race (Goblin and Worgen) but NOT the Pandaren or Monk class.

    Seeing as GW2 is F2P and WoW is P2P..what's stopping you from playing both other then the mentality of "I CAN ONLY PLAY ONE GAME AND IT IS BEST GAME OVER OTHERS". Not like you'll have end game raids in GW2 to draw you away from doing stuff in WoW that you enjoy.

    Does this mean we can play pandaren when 5.0.4 is released before MOP is released o.o?

    What they mean is: you don't need to own the Mists of Pandaria expansion to play the Pandaren race, but you'll have to wait till that expansion actually launches to actually do so in the case for Pandaren.

    What that means in general, though, is that people who just buy the basic WoW game access (ie, most new players) won't be limited to which races they want to play just because they didn't purchase the expansions yet.

    And honestly, it's a great idea considering how many expansions there are to WoW now; it's best that they start to learn from Everquest's mistakes when they started having many many MANY expansions. Making more of the new features baseline to new standard accounts makes getting started into the game a less daunting task in regards to 'oh shit now I have to buy 2 more things just so I can play this main game, what the hell'.



    edit: holy lack of general reading comprehension, batman. You guys are breaking my heart today. x___x

    I think this is cool. Most people are already caught up as far as expansions are concerned...but this will be nice for new players who only invested in vanilla/bc so they can at least play the race they were most interested in.

    But I also think this gives players a chance to play the pandaren and see what they are all about (regardless of being able to play the monk class or not) and get a feel for the race themselves. So many people assume the worst out of the race and this is a chance for those players to get to be hands on with them and really try them out before deciding to invest in MoP or not. I think it's a win win for both sides. Blizz will win some over with the pandaren I am sure...and I am sure some people will at least get a chance to say Well now I know even if it means they un-sub and go elsewhere. It's a good way for both sides to be happy and I think many will find they enjoy the pandaren as a race...or at least find them more tolerable than they originally thought.

    Looking forward to it (even though I am already planning to buy MoP on release day...).

    You can play anything except Pandaren two weeks from now. The Pandaren will be available next month.

    It includes Pandaren after Sep 25th. It is interesting that you would be able to buy Vanilla/BC, then roll a Pandaren, and do the Pandaren starting quests on the turtle. Im guessing you cant be a DK w/o Wrath or a monk w/o MoP though.

    BC is now part of vanilla, they dont sell it seperate anymore since they merged it digitally and in stores. Technically there are now 3 expansions. Wotlk, Cata and MoP.

    They did this because they dont want to steer away new players who think they will have to buy 5 box sets to play.
