    Why the Mist gone? why now?

    Hey everyone, I still didn't get any solid answer about why the mist from Pandaria gone? and specially why now? what is the cause of it's disappearance?

    Some folks speculate it's something similar to how the comflouge device of Uldum gone (or damaged) from the Cataclysm and Deathwing. However, I think this is not true because the timeline between the start of cataclysm and Mist of pandaria I think at least some years and durning the years of cata storyline lore there was no news about any new uncovered contiuent of Pandaria at all....or could it be because they were busy with the Twilight hammer and Deathwing? hmmm not sure...

    What I do think the real reason maybe because of the death of all dragon aspects (yes not entirely dead except for Deathwing but they are mortals now and can no longer have the aspect dragon power anymore)...who knows this is just my speculation.

    Discuss please and thanks for reading.

    Somehow before the Shattering dissipated the magic that kept Pandaria hidden since the Great Sundering, some pandaren emerged from the bamboo forests of their ancestors to bring their unique fighting style (and robust ales) to the rest of Azeroth.[2]

    The Shattering did get rid of the mists that hid Pandaria. Also, the time skip between Cata and MoP is only a year.

    The mist went away because of the Cataclysm. We just didn't notice it before now because we weren't in that part of the world at the time.

    If that's 100% true then why there was like almost no clue about it durning the Cataclysm storyline? I know maybe they were busy with Deathwing and the Twilight hammer but still...there is no way in hell that all of Azeroth society were just focusing on nothing but Deathwing got what I mean?

    It can simply be explained by that it is in the far south of the world, most of the trade goes between the northern and central parts of the world so few ships would have passed that far south.

    How come the Americas weren't "discovered" for so long? Someone had to run into it first.

    (in quotes because the Vikings and nomadic Asiatic peoples that crossed the Bering Straight land bridge don't count)

    Because they aren't going to tell us what the next expansion is while we are in the middle or beginning of the current one. Toward the end, sure, but come on OP. I'm sure you're not THAT dense. The Shattering DID remove the mist. It's said in multiple quests including the lorewalkers quests, which I wager you either didn't do or didn't pay attention to.

    Think of it like the World of Warcraft YOU play is only one story and narration. Even if Pandaria had been discovered while Deathwing was alive, it doesn't mean YOUR character, or anyone in the alliance new about it until YOU discovered it. For god's sake, suspend with disbelief for one damn second and just let it happen. It's supposed to be a fantasy world. In a video game. The Shattering removed the mists, and right up at the very end of Cataclysm we discovered Pandaria. Is that really that hard to believe?

    Could you point me to a source for this? The timeline for WoW has always confused me.

    I remember that much, but that doesn't say anything about potential time skips.

    Maybe time skips weren't the best choice of words but you understand what I meant.

    When there's a global catastrophe of SUCH a scale, I wouldn't be surprised if they were focused solely on deathwing and the cataclysm. I mean, look at all the zones in the game, much of their storyline revolves around repairing the broken world and helping those who were affected by it.

    It's because the Mists coalesced into the Sha.
