3 Days, 2 Hours, and 48 minutes until Mists of Pandaria goes live. Unfortunately I'm working night shift on the 24th so I wont be able to get my copy until after Game Stop opens at 9 AM on the 25th. I'll probably sleep until 1 PM and then go pick it up, so I'll be getting a late start. On a positive note, I'll be off until the 28th so I'll have a few days to play before going back to work.
Although it will be cool to role a Pandaren Monk, I am more interested in questing in the new zones and leveling my 85s to 90. I look forward to doing the new scenarios, dungeons and raids, and leveling professions again. It will be strange to see a level bar at the top of my screen again to be sure.
For the last couple of weeks, while waiting for MoP, I've been working on Zenul's Quest Achievements for the different zones; it's a grind but not too bad for an 85 in the low level areas. I can do them pretty quickly. Had to go back to Vashj'ir which is, hands down, the most fantastic zone in the game. I know a lot of people don't like Vashj'ir due to the difficultly of operating in it's 3 dimensional environment, and I was one of them. However, now that I've returned and gotten past that I am able to appreciate the beauty of this underwater world and all the detail put into the buildings, plants and sea life. Its truly an amazing place. If you haven't been there in a while go back, take the time to look around you, and enjoy its beauty.
