Cataclysm World Event Leading to Mists of Pandaria

  • Theramore will be destroyed by Horde. Enraged Alliance leaders will devote their efforts to the war against the Horde. The ignited rage between the factions spreads the war to the borders of Pandaria where Alliance and Horde will wage war on this peaceful continent disturbing the peace that the Pandaren enjoyed for thousands of years.


New Possible Mounts That May Be Available in MoP


Other Mists of Pandaria Rumors

  • The new goldsink craftable mount (like Chopper, Hog, & Sandstone Drake) will be made by Jewelcrafters.

  • Players may be able to scale down their level/power to play with friends who are lower level.

  • Players may be able to increase their items' levels using valor points rather than having nothing to spend them on after purchasing the best upgrades already.

  • Players may be able to customize colors of their spells.

  • Prime glyphs may be completely removed.

  • Achievements and mounts (like non-combat pets) may be shared account wide, so players will not have to earn the same achievement on each character.

  • Leatherworkers may be able to make quivers again for visual effects on hunters.

  • A new style of tanking with more active mitigation may emerge. For example a warrior might use offensive abilities to generate rage, and spend rage on defensive abilities to mitigate damage.

  • Character models and animation may be improving for a better visual experience.

  • Hunters may get a "stampede" style ability that allows all 5 unstabled pets to attack their target. It would have a long cooldown as the spell would be quite powerful.

  • Warrior intercept ability will be removed and the cooldown on charge will be adjusted to compensate.

  • Hybrid classes will be able to perform a role equally as well as a pure class, but there will still be incentives to include pure classes in the group.
