Over the next few months, I will be creating and posting video guides for World of Warcraft heroic dungeons in the Mists of Pandaria expansion. This is the first video in the series for the Temple of the Jade Serpent. This dungeon located in The Jade Forest on Pandaria is one of the first MoP dungeons accessible to players at level 85. The Jade Serpent Temple has been taken over by the Sha of Doubt. To reclaim the temple on her behalf, players must defeat several of the inhabitants of the temple who have been become corrupted before finally defeating the Sha of Doubt.

Recently I have been spending quite a bit of time in World of Warcraft playing the Mists of Pandaria expansion. On the whole I am really enjoying the new content, even though leveling from 85-90 took a bit longer than I expected, it was a matter of a week casual game-play. I did the first LFR raid released and all of the heroic dungeons. They all well made, bug free and allot of fun.
My only issue so far are the dailies. Oh my god there are a ton of dailies. You may ask why this is a problem? If you don't like dailies simply do not do them. Well the issue is that in MoP you cannot buy any Valor level gear without having achieved at least Honored reputation 4 factions (Revered for most gear). In its self Honored is not that hard to get, so I was able to unlock Honored with 2 of the factions so far, which allows me to buy a Valor Ring and Necklace. However I cannot unlock dailies for a Shado-Pan faction unless I first reach Revered with the Golden Lotus. With about 100-150 reputation per daily quest and 12000 reputation needed (80-120 dailies). To unlock all of the valor gear I need to do around 400 daily quests (adjusting for various rep gains fro.
So I like many players have some build up Valor points and nothing to do with it. At this point running Scenarios & Dungeons have very diminishing returns. I basically need to roll up my sleeves and do my dailies.
See you in Pandaria

World of Warcraft's long-awaited fourth expansion is finally here, Mists of Pandaria launched without any major issues and players from across all realms are now competing for quest objectives (No seriously too many peops doing the same quests)
Players are treated to 5 new levels, new continent, new dungeons and raids, pet battles as well as new PvP Battlegrounds. Players that want to read more about the new expansion can check out Blizzard's Mists of Pandaria Survival Guide

Yesterday Blizzard released its pre expansion patch 5.0.4. The patch went out 3 hours late but went out fairly smoothly after that. This new patch did cause a bit of in game chaos as it featured talent revamp, a spellbook overhaul, AoE looting, cross-realm zones, UI changes, currency conversions, and account-wide achievements, mounts, and pets.
Players also found that most of their add-ons such as Deadly Boss Mods and Spellflash were not functioning even if updated to their latest versions. Healers had to heal by clicking on health bars rather than using an add-on. Noxxic was down for part of the night as everyone tried to look up how to spend their talent points and new rotations. Without spellflash and Noxxic players had to figure out their own rotations, you like we usually have to do in all other MMOs :) It is safe to say there were many wipes.
There were some good news though, players that had rare mounts on other characters can now use those mounts on all of their tunes. Also with the elimination of Valor and Conquest points players can now purchase Valor and Conquest gear for the much easier to get Justice and Honor points. So everyone's item level went up overnight.
All things considered this patch going out a month earlier is probably a good idea considering it spreads to chaos and might make Mists of Pandaria launch a bit smother.

Blizzard releases an official cinematic trailer for World of Warcraft's fourth expansion set, Mists of Pandaria. Although I personaly hated the Pandarians at first (Pandas in WoW common) I have to admit that this video takes me a long way towards making peace with the new WoW race.

Blizzard has introduced the Panderian mount of choice, the Dragon Turtle and mount collectors every ware rejoiced.
Here is a quote from Blizzard that perfectly describes the new mounts:
The pandaren have long sought mounts that embody their values: patience and strength. With a naturally armored hide, and even gait (no matter how heavy the passenger), and the relaxed attitude that welcomes long journeys, the Dragon Turtle is perfect for the pandaren adventurer. Indigenous to mainland Pandaria, these fine steeds are easily outfitted with the essentials: maps, cushions, footstools, and brew-storage. Comfortable and hardy, the dragon turtle’s slow, even stride will gently ease passengers into new parts of the world and/or a relaxing nap time.
Although I personally dislike pandas in World of Warcraft (with a passion), I admit that the mount fits the Panderians.
