With the newest World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Pandaria set to launch on September 25th, Blizzard Entertainment released Patch 5.04 this Tuesday. This patch paves the way for Pandaria. The new Talent System overhaul has been implemented, and it is a world of difference from any previous talent system that World of Warcraft has had.
Out are the days of cookie-cutter, set-in-stone builds and in are the days of flexible builds. Also new, changing a talent can be done on-the-fly. This means character builds can be modified mid-raid or mid-PvP battle, allowing for quick strategic changes depending upon what the situation may call for.
On August 28th when Blizzard Entertainment releases patch 5.0.4 for World of Warcraft, for the first time ever all races will become accessible to Warcraft players regardless of which version of the game they own. This means that even if you do not own any of the Warcraft expansions, you will still be able to roll a character using one of the races made available by them. This quantum shift in race accessibility will even include the Pandaren race, who become available on September 25th when Mists of Pandaria is released.
This begs question, which new race will you roll first?
With World of Warcraft‘s latest expansion, Mists of Pandaria, set to launch on September 25th, you can expect news to starting to come in at a pretty fast pace. Case in point, Blizzard released the opening cinematic for Panda today, and it’s pretty damn interesting.

Well kids, another year has passed and we are close to a new World of Warcraft expansion. First though, let’s take a look back at the Cataclysm. As a guild, Geeks Of Doom had a pretty big expansion. We saw the return of a lot of old faces, the departure of some, but overall we added a ton of new members. We made further progression in raiding than we ever had before as a guild. While we stalled a little in Firelands due to healer issues and leadership changes, we came back strong in Dragon Soul (DS), and killed Deathwing before the nerfs really hit hard.
With the widespread down-time we’re experiencing at the end of this expansion (what’s the deal with that Blizzard? At least Wrath of the Lich King [WotLK] gave us Ruby Sanctum to make you feel like there was something different to do toward the end), I figured I would give a quick idea of where GoD is heading in the next expansion, and some of the things we’re looking forward to in Mist of Pandaria.
The best-selling MMORPG ever is at it again. With Deathwing defeated and all of Azeroth seemingly safe for a few months, the eyes of residents of the World of Warcraft shift towards their next big adventure — Mists of Pandaria. The Panda beta, as players are lovingly referring to it, went live this month. And since it is a public beta with no NDA (Non-disclosure Agreement) from Blizzard, a ton of information has already hit the Web. I am here to sift through some of the latest info.
