    It's worth it if you love dailies, can't say anything about PvP though
    KAPOW!

    It was surprisingly good. I haven't done much PVP yet this expansion, but thats something I tend to just do when bored in MMOs. I haven't gotten bored yet and I've been playing almost every day. Even things I thought I'd want nothing to do with (pet battles, farming) I find myself doing. Raiding is also challenging again.

    If you enjoy grind in general yes. Otherwise no not so much. Pvp is as usual unbalanced as hell.

    And the tiny fraction for whom heroic raids are currently well tuned? Too bad,so sad! With the arterial bleed of subs the fastest it's ever been, the vanity development that gives you guys your own content is no longer supportable.

    I'd say, you throw in those 40 bucks and try it for yourself. My friends may say "Coke Zero tastes bad" I say it tastes good. Your own opinion is what matters. I've never taken others into consideration. I can promise you that is the best choice, regarding MMos. I've been led into buying so many games. " Aion, Tera, Warhammer, Age of Conan and much more. Yet I hated those. They were just " Oh wow, it's so good, bla bla and of course they quit after a month "

    Actually, do you know what? Blizzard released a 10day Trial of MOP. Try it yourself!

    I play both PvE and PvP. I've achieved High Rating on Both my Warrior and Retri. I usually top the DPS and yet I've not done a single BG! Awesome, right? No grind for me. Dunno what you're experiencing. It's optional, if you want slightly better gear that can be achieved by dailies, do so. I prefer raiding and HCs.

    It should be on your world of warcraft account in battle net. Just go into your frozen account and choose 10 day trial of mop.

    Just came back myself after close to a year away. Can't say the game feels or plays all that differently. MoP is ok so far.

    If you want to WORK for something then yes.

    Also you can activate trial version of Mists of Pandaria in the account managed.

    You might want to know there will be five LFRs for the first tier. If you're going to be super casual, gearing up late won't be quite as awful. Also, the reputation dailies will unlock first-raid tier items to get you going as well.

    Also how is the new pvp system? Is it better then the old one?
    Someone's gonna have to explain this one. I'm not seeing any difference between 4.3 PVP and 5.0.5 PVP.

    It's no more or less worth it than previous expansions. Well, it is more worth it than Cataclysm.

    If you enjoy playing the game, you'll enjoy playing the expansion. If you're bored of it, there's nothing that's going to draw you back in and keep you playing. Well, you never know, you might find yourself absolutely in love with the Monk. That might keep your attention for a while.

    The PvP "balance" is worse than I have ever seen it since Lich King. It's apparent that Blizzard has poured all of their resources into new zones and PvE content. PvP is much more of an afterthought than it was during Cataclysm, and can be positively painful to engage in. This is unless you play one of the favored classes, which are Warriors. (Also Frost Mages and Beast Mastery Hunters, but nerfs are incoming for them.)

    If you like leveling, raiding, or many dailies, this is a great expansion. If you enjoy PvP, it's a disappointment.

    Christ if it were slightly better I wouldn't touch it and frankly nobody would. No the rewards are their because they are MUCH better than anything you can get outside the raid. They are not slightly or marginally better. In fact the best shoulders currently for a warrior come from daily quests. Get that through your fucking skulls. dailies are a shitty FORCED grind.

    Now go ahead and tell me I'm fucking entitled. This is BS and people will leave for it. The more the better.

    I don't know... I paid for it (MoP + sub) and got a server transfer too because who wants 3000 people 6 hour queues, right?

    It's not too bad, basicly it's new content. I think it might be worth it even compared to say a new Xbox game or something.
