    Mists of Pandaria Asian Chinese style expansion

    Are you a fan of Asian style expansion? To me atleast the chines style very irritating. Dont really like to play in Pandaria. Only playing alts and some lvl 90 pvp. The chines are just so not fitting to wow.

    How is it any different from the other styles in the game?

    But I do like the look and feel of the Asian style in game.

    I honestly love Pandaria and the Asian style. Its really different than any other place in WoW, and it has a nice tranquil quality to it. I love just hanging out in the mountains near the Temple of the White Tiger. Blizzard did a really good job on that continent. Can't wait to see how everything finishes.

    I don't like how they based on entire continent on Asian/Chinese style, I agree its irritating.

    Inb4 Northrend = viking themed, only Howling Ford and Storm Peaks are.

    You know what I love about Pandaria?

    It's all of Asia. We've got tibetans (Grummles), mongolians (Yaungol), Buddhists (Jinyu), Ancient China (Mogu), and modern china (Pandaren). We've even got the Klaxxi which are strange sort of Alien+Druid+Insectoid race that is unlike any of the previously encountered insectoid races. And then there are the Hozen who are... I guess an entire race of Frat Boys... But there's the Sha... emotion-manifest. Yeah it's probably old god stuff again, but it's nothing we've encountered before.

    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.

    right
    Night elves=Asian inspired
    Tauren= Naitive American Inspired
    Worgens=British inspired
    Human=american(they are..)
    the list goes on.
    Wrath of the Lich king=scandinavian based.

    you don't like it, go play SWTOR...and really IT's a fantasy, you see that FANTASY MMO RPG!

    I said it in a post earlier but as fun as MoP is interms of its design I find myself really looking back and craving a more traditional WoW setting. Whether it be Northrend or Outland or Cata etc. MoP just doesn't feel like WoW to me.

    "Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary plot element, theme, or setting."

    Where in that does it say that Asian overtones are not allowed or that it has to be strictly European-based? You should learn to stop being so narrow-minded. It'll help you in life's many endeavors.

    I don't like the asian style.
    I also believe they didn't develop the "norse aspect" of Northrend enough. But maybe that is because i love norse mythology and stuff.

    actually almost all of northrend is based off norse mythology.

    Like bionics said, where is the difference with grand part of Azeroth (and even parts of Outland) being European-influenced?

    No, it's not. I'm 90% white, nothing Asian in me. And why do you say "an asian"?

    Really? Do you really think that if I dont like chinese style in some video game it affects other aspects of my life? Get real bro. It's not a sign of narrow-mindness if I dont like asian style.

    I'm pretty sure Southeastern asia was one of the few cultures that had yet to be represented by a WoW race.

    Classic was ... classic.

    BC was kind of odd, the sci-fi element was a bit jarring, but it was the first expansion so "different" was okay and Nagrand and Zangarmarsh were beautiful.

    I actually found Northrend's art style to be really off-putting. The theme was undeath and dreary and they succeeded, with a bit of pioneer/rustic. Didn't like much of the music, didn't like much of how the dungeons and raids felt, didn't like much the way the player base ... changed (not so much which players, but how they chose to do things at that point).

    Cata had a lot of variety, from underwater to inside a massive cavern/plane, to islands of rock and lava, and cultist-twisted regions, and a mini-pseudo-Egypt. A disappointment as an expansion, but not my least liked expansion by far.

    I've quite enjoyed Pandaria's style, in part because it's not something most Western MMOs have touched upon.
