    Thank you for making me feel old. MoP did have a lot of good moments but I got really tired of the Asian theming all over the continent, and I was never a fan of how stereotyped they made the pandaren which there were to many of. It was the last good expansion, and then came WoD......

    Does it feel like 8 years?
    Do you feel old?


    I was in grade school still and when i came home i made a horde panda monk i was too lazy to get to lvl 85 and my dk was 83 when mop came out
    I was just about to turn 44 (my birthday is tomorrow).

    I jumped in and did the starting quests and went from there. I know I started a monk too but I don’t recall exactly when he started.

    For me it feels a lot longer, but that’s because a lot has happened; I got remarried, my son got married, I had another kid (at 50!), and other stuff. In game it’s harder to mark the time.

    Do I feel old? Well, older, for sure. Turning 52 and still being passionate about life helps you feel young though. Looking forward to Shadowlands as well, I’m pretty confident it’ll be really good.

    I was 17-18, a Senior in high school. I distinctly remember my friend and I on the computer in English class checking out all the info that had been released about MoP at the time, and I remember us being utterly revolted at the concept of WoW: Kung Fu Panda Edition lmao

    I had just turned 43, so I'm not far behind you, old geezers!

    Math says I was 35.
    I probably didn't play right away because I was most likely working. It honestly seems longer to me than 8 years, because it was only a year later I quit my job.

    In terms of feeling older, I haven't really felt older than I was in my 20s, though my body occasionally likes to disagree with that sentiment.
    Do I really look like a guy with a plan?

    Old Geezers can be fun... have alot of history behind us ... also works to make the young ones laugh at us (with us).

    I initially decided not to play, as Cataclysm didn't hit me the right way. Eventually my friend convinced me to start playing saying he would level with me, but I never saw him until I hit max level and he kept asking over and over if I was high enough ilvl to tank heroic dungeons for him.

    I was 26.
    I had the Annual pass. Downloaded the game, played on release.
    Feels longer ago than 8 years due to what happened at the end of that year. I don't have the advantage of a brain that forgets the bad/less important details of past years.
    No, I do not feel old.

    This expansion will always be one of my favorites for the stories and beautiful imagery all over the continent. I'll also remember being stuck flying the copter at the start of questing.
    Yeah I also still remember the long queues and then being stuck on the copter with 10000 other people

    Old enough to remember people losing their shit about the "china pandering kung-fu panda expansion"

    I suppose from a purely marketing standpoint, as I think most of the execution of MoP was actually pretty good, (though I feel it dropped off near the end with patch 5.3 being underwhelming and the timeless isle quickly losing its luster in 5.4) Blizzard could have lead a bit more with the threats of the expansion like the sha, mogu and mantid, rather than a "you're gonna see the pandaren! Isn't that neat!?!?" as their initial marketing push.

    There's still people doing that.
    Still calling them out, one infraction at a time.

    I remind people of my age when I outDPS them (not that often). Cheers!

    I was 39 and rolled a kungfu Panda. Enjoyed the new setting as I disliked Cata.

    This, really. Time flies by now, soon i'll be an old man like you

    I was a half year shy of 30, and shortly after it came out, my mother died. Put a little dent in the game for me for a bit.

    In my guild we have a few at 45ish, a couple at 50-52 and one lady at 60+. Stay strong Even if the body falls apart eventually the mind stay at 20. I am 30+ but my mind is still 12 so there.

    Its funny how that shows us when we get older. We might get wiser, but the mind stays young no matter what
    - Enough prattling. Let them come. We shall grind their bones to dust.
