Mists of Pandaria

New Zone : Pandaria



New Zone Pandaria

          Pandaria has been shrouded in a protective mist excluding it and its residents from the rest of Azeroth for almost ten thousand years. In the new expansion, Alliance and Horde buccaneers battling in the South Seas run across a curious new race, the Pandaren.

          Upon further relations with the Pandaren, Alliance and Horde heroes discover a whole new hidden world of adventure. Pandaria will feature 7 new unique zones with high level (85-90) content. The seven zones are:


  • The Jade Forest: Level 85-86

  • Valley of the Four Winds: Level 86-88

  • Krasarang Wilds: Level 86-88

  • Kun-Lai Summit: Level 87-89

  • Townlong Steppes: Level 89-90

  • Dread Wastes: Level 89-90

  • Vale of Eternal Blossoms: Level 90

Map of Pandaria



The Wandering Isle

(levels 1-10)

Pandaren Starting Zone Wandering Isle

          Years ago, some adventurous Pandaren decided to explore beyond the mist of their homeland, Pandaria. They gathered on the back of a giant sea turtle. This "Wandering Isle" will be the new starting zone for the Pandaren race. Pandaren characters will start as a neutral faction. Upon reaching level 10, Pandaren characters will choose which side they will support and become Alliance or Horde from then on.


MoP Dungeons & Raids

Pandaria Dungeons and Raids

          Nine new dungeons and three new epic raids will be available at the release of Mists of Pandaria. Most of the new dungeons will be on Pandaria, but some are returning Vanilla favorites. Blizzard mentioned that the new level 90 dungeons will not have normal modes, so players will be jumping straight into heroics.

          Also, Challenge Modes will be introduced with medals and record holders to help satisfy players' competitive spirits. The raids will focus on some new races that occupy Pandaria, the Mogu and the Mantids. Some early information about some of the new MoP dungeons and raids is listed below.
