Stylewise mop is the equivalent of bending over, taking Down Your pants and shouting WELCOME IN!! to the Chinese market.
It might be a good marketing strategy but its bound to get criticised.
Wotlk had influences (even strong at times) MIXED with a bunch of things that made it LOOK interesting (remember we're discussing style now).
I'm going through the zones in mop now with my rogue and I have to admit its too much.
This is like uldum and Indiana jones. It's not an Easter egg anymore it's a 14 kg rock shoveled down your throat.
The Asian (Chinese) theme is not an "influence" in mop. It's a supporting pillar.
