Lineage 2 is pretty popular in Japan though, and that game is an awful grindfest. I still believe Blizzard missed an opportunity there.

"Like bacteria"? So...Pan-dear-ee-aa? That can't be right! But I've been turning the word over in my mind so much over the past few minutes, it doesn't look like English anymore.
Are Challenge Mode dungeons harder than heroics? or are they just the same difficulty with a timer on them?
I'd say a little harder. I expect most players who give it a shot can earn bronze eventually. Beyond that...
Could anyone comment on this? I remmember some datamined numbers that said, among other things, that a random mob from a trash pack of 4 will do about 4 times more damage than it does in the normal 85lvl version. That actually seemed pretty hard, requiring a ton of CC and so on.
Now he says a little harder... This doesn't correspond with that, did they nerf the challenge modes in beta since their introduction?
They mention time paradoxes being a part of WoW, well if that's the case then WHY CAN'T GOBLINS AND WORGEN BE MONKS. Their reasoning is countered by the very time paradox they admit WoW has (Pandaren couldn't get over the wall/ride a turtle to Kazan). Unless I missed something and they changed their minds on that. I'm thinking it's just they didn't want to bother with the animation and all that, and the inaccessibility is just a lame excuse.
Screw Mists of Pandaria, I want to play "Panda Man of Mystery", "Wall Online" and "Fashion Woman to Help"!
The first title you spend an expansion piecing together the identity of a mysterious fuzzy visitor to your capital city. Invest points in your Stalking and Sherlock skill trees!
The second title you can analize a brick, wooden or concrete wall with your friends, in STUNNING 2D.
The third and final ttile is Lady Gaga's first steps into the gaming industry. But will the helper become the helpee?
China really gets the good stuff.
I don’t see how Blizzard apparently doesn’t even have a wow 2 on the roadmap, even 5+ years out. It’s true that they can make minor improvements to the graphics and gameplay through expansions like they’ve done (retexturing and remodeling)…but it doesn’t improve the base engine. So wow will continue to have very cartoonish graphics that already look very dated for many years, and an engine that has major trouble with wpvp and even large pve raids. Sending 2 raid groups into a capital city basically crashes the whole zone down to 3 fps no matter what system a player has, and aoe in a pve raid is way slower than it should be too compared to other newer games. None of that can be fixed without updating the engine which would require a wow 2. It just seems a bit arrogant to think they can keep it using the same engine for that long and people will still keep doling out their $15 a month, which frankly almost all of the blue post responses have a tone of. I love wow, and good gameplay can overcome 2004 graphics to a degree - but even the Atari 2600 eventually had the 5200. I’d just like to see them at least have it on the roadmap.
Seems very nice
Players don't want to restart everything in a "same but better" mmo. If you want new players or your players to switch give them something totally new (and Blizzard have Titan for that) outside of that keep upgrading your game (wow could have a new super shiny engine with an expension if blizzard want to. You don't need a WOW 2 for that. Same for every single change you can imagine for a sequel)
How does "Mists of Pandaria" translate to "Panda Man of Mystery"? LOL That's hilarious.
Also, I'm with @Chonar. "Fashion Woman to Help"?? Yes please! Who needs Titan with THAT on the table.
So let me get this straight.. dual wielders will get 2 legendary gems? Isn't that kind of overpowered?
Why is there rarely any pvp questions on the twitter?
I'll be glad when Blizzard gets over their obsession with extreme, over-sized shoulders.

All this complaining is simply further proof that Blizzard could send each and every player a real-life wish-granting flying unicorn carrying a solid gold plate of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in hundred dollar bills, and someone would whine that Blizzard sucks for not letting them choose oatmeal raisin.
Mists approved in China
LOL! Google translates it to: World of Warcraft: Panda Man of Mystery.
