Cho and the overall lore of Pandaria was some of the best stuff in the game to date. The place actually felt like it had an ancient history to it, one that shaped the present day... that we happened to fall face-first into.
Regarding Draenor... I am disappoint.
I suspect the reason Pandaria's history was so interesting (the Mantid and Klaxxi alone are great) was because the devs had free rein to create what they pleased. In Draenor, everything is going to have to fit into that historical mold set up by WC 1 and 2.

Hey, lets send the Lorewalkers through the Dark portal...you know, to write stories and stuff....

-== Worgen Rageface makes me laugh ==-
Just a little heads-up, your sig looks as though you agree with that statement. For people not having read this post, you are sending the exact opposite message of what you mean.You just shattered my mind. That's hands down the most ludicrous statement I've ever read about the lore in my entire MMO-C "career." Hah, in fact, that's sig worthy.
"When you understand why you dismiss all the other gods people believe in, you will understand why I dismiss yours."
The only bit which really bothered me is the meeting with him on the Alliance side where you have to balance chi or something and hit the gong was so relieved when I recently leveled a horde and found that bit wasn't there.
Anything else related to him / the faction you can ignore.
If you think all Mantid can fly that kind of calls both your lore expertise and observational skills into question.
And your claim that you've read all the short stories.

Harrison Jones has pride of place in Stormshield, Ashran.
The bank doubles as his artifact storeroom, graciously opening its free space to the public.
He's collecting lore objects from Ashran and the rest of Draenor and enlists your help, only by giving you quests to do it instead of the more interesting Lorewalker method. And without the interesting Lorewalker reward.

I have no clue what OP is trying to say but for me Lorewalker Cho is one of the best characters in WoW. I would put him right next to Bran when it comes to liking someone. Also I liked doing the achi for Lorewalkers, was nice finding the scrolls and then get the visual lore story rather then like with previous expansions having to read wow wiki to findout what happened. Wish there was something like this for Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms.
I am also very disappointed that Cho is not going with us to Draenor, he was the only good part about Pandaria and Pandarens in general.
Cho actually does pop up in Draenor too, though only for one quest.
About being the most epic guy, a TINY BIT of an overstatement, but nevertheless - he's a very likable and well written character in my opinion. Not to mention he's a great guide to Pandaria, I actually enjoyed all of his stories. I wish we had someone like that in WotLK for example, but then again - it would be unfitting.
Also, I had a certain theory if Lorewalker Cho actually existed in the world. It could very well be an embodiment of narrative, because, frankly speaking, even in Pandaria he felt out of place in most of the situations. I can hardly imagine someone like that running with us throughout the first wing of SoO, being completely unarmed and "ooooooh mysteries".
Additionally, his VO, man. Lorewalker Pooh!

Loved the stories, but hated Cho the Dumbass's performance in raids and in the world. "Oh, here is the ancient titan machine with a flashing button on it! Hey! Why don't I run forward and press it ASAP?" "Oh, who could've guessed that pressing that button will revive an ancient titan mechanism to life and that mech will want to kill us as soon as it starts? Well heroes, go kill it, while I'll sit here, drink tea and fucking meditate".
Idiotic clowny panda.
Although I tend to hate unskippable RP stuff in raids, so my view on this matter must be subjective. Green jezus's performance at Brown orc nazi was even more stupid and pathetic, TBH.
I liked them very much. Lots of Lore telling with little and short animations. I'm also done Seeker of Knowledge so i visited them quite often ;>
Any panda that forces me to sit in a cave with him, alone, while drinking tea and not allowing me to leave, is not a panda I am ever gonna like.
Alright let me be honest, I don't dislike Cho or the faction he is a part off, but I couldn't have cared less if they didn't exist either.
