How did you like it when there was a Viking-style expansion. Or in Cataclysm when we spend time in ancient Egypt?

Why it even has to be original? Stormwind is perfect as it is.Right, and Stormwind is so original. Never seen a city like it in every single fantasy story that ever existed.
Couldn't this thread have just been a poll? I mean, it's just boiled down to a) ''I don't like the asian theme waaah.'' , b) ''Asian theme is wicked awesome'' or c) ''LOL ASIAN STEREOTYPE JOKE IN POOR TASTE'', being repeated by several posters for over two dozen pages.

You may as well complain that dire trolls and undead wights (see Putricide final phase) don't have ''unique models'' either.

Fuck that. Those were still more "fitting" than the jinujuy.You may as well complain that dire trolls and undead wights (see Putricide final phase) don't have ''unique models'' either.
The amount of hate Pandaria gets for no real reason is pretty depressing. I understand that some people are really into the demonic stuff, but we don't need that sort of thing in EVERY expansion. MoP was a nice change of pace after WotLK and Cataclysm, and I personally love the Asian theme.
Besides, its not like WoW is ending here. We're going to be getting the announcement for the next expansion in 8 months. So just relax.
I forgat about the original art at Blizzcon, indeed. In fact, I remember some of the raids have mantids dressed in those typical korean women clothing, can't remember the name.

I was growing tired of the same re-heated panda defense "oh but there is Uldum, isn't that like I mean like egypt?"
Egypt = 1 zone
China = The entire continent/expansion

There is more peace in Pandaria than there was in Wrath or BC ot Cata. No villain, alliance-horde rivalry turned out to be nothing more than it was in any previous expansion. There is green lush meadows and a bunch of pandas, rats, rabbits, etc. It is, however, only the beginning of the expansion, Blizzard has a chance to turn up the heat on WAR. I expect them to squander their chance to salvage MOP and keep running WoW into the ground.

This thread reminds ne to the very same complains that appeared when BC was released and "a lot" of people complained about it because there were "other planets", Spaceships, aliens (refering to Naaru and Draenei) and "laserz!". Was funny to read those threads, and more funny when, years later, you saw those very same complainers saying that BC was cool :/
As always, people will complain for anything
I'm not sure about it. I'm neutral.
I loved "Viking theme", and i would love to see "Greek mythology" or Ancient Rome fit into wow. But what i really want, is Burning Legion/Emerald Dream(Nightmare) expansion. Im a sucker for "evil themes" i guess.
Doesnt mean i dislike MoP, but its alittle too shiny and "funny". (As in happy panda + beer to make it funny) So neutral

Yes, the villain of Cataclysm was Deathwing. If you had paid attention to the story at all, however, you would know who the real villains were. The subtext wasn't exactly deep in Cataclysm, either.
As for TBC not being about whoever sent the Burning Legion...did you not play through Sunwell Plateau? Because the guy who sent the Burning Legion is the final boss of it, and by extension, the entire expansion. His name's Kil'Jaeden, I suggest you go read up on him: http://www.wowpedia.org/Kil%27Jaeden
As for demons and undead not being "new" to WoW, neither were the Pandaren if we include The Frozen Throne. Even if we don't, Chen's Empty Keg is a real quest from the vanilla version of The Barrens: http://www.wowpedia.org/Chen%27s_Empty_Keg. Even after that, we had the Pandaren Monk pet that was revealed in Wrath of the Lich King.
Finally, stop saying they copied a real world culture. Not only have several of posters already brought up the Vykrul, but several posters have attempted to explain to you that "Asia" isn't a culture. Neither is "Southeast Asia". Until you actually understand that, I will continue to bring it up.

Heh. Never been (or have anyone you know go) to modern china have you? If real life mainland chinese are as nice as the Pandaren, the world would be a much better place.Originally Posted by Potassiumgluconate;2 pandarens 0309194
Probably these guys, Japanese macaque. You even have a bunch occasionally at the open air bathe at the back of the Tavern of the Mists.And then there are the Hozen who are...
Every new expansion continent is the "richest and most detailed continent in the game". >.>Standing around in the Shrines... just listening to the music, admiring the murals on the walls... this is without a doubt the richest and most detailed continent in the game.
I have to second the OP and agree it's over-done.
The rest of the darn expansion will be in this style too ... /sigh
