2012/04/06 at 9:10 AM
So early this morning there was a patch for Mists of Pandaria which will probably hit live servers tonight. There were a lot of added mounts, as well as profession things starting to make their way onto the beta. We also learned that the World of Warcraft class team has, well, class--they sign their notes with "XOXO":
Check out the latest additions on our beta website
Like Cataclysm and Wrath of the Lich King, Scribes will have epic shoulder enchants:
Greater Tiger Claw Inscription
Greater Crane Wing Inscription
There will be a new Recruit-a-Friend mount:
RAF Mount III
will be new craftable mounts
Given its similarity to
Vial of the Sands
, it's likely this mount will end up being crafted by Alchemists:
Heart of the Nightwing
You will be able to favorite your pets, as well as release them: BATTLE_PET_FAVORITE = "Set Favorite"; BATTLE_PET_RELEASE = "Release";
Prime glyphs continue to become minor cosmetic ones:

Blizzard Adding 250,000 More Players to the Mists of Pandaria Beta Tonight
2012/04/04 at 8:14 PM
That’s right -- we’re in the process of sending 250,000 additional beta-test invites to Annual Pass holders. Keep an eye on your email and Battle.net account for an invitation to come test Mists of Pandaria with us.
As with previous waves, it’s going to take a while for the invites to process, so we recommend checking your games list in Battle.net Account Management to see whether yours has arrived yet. Once it does, you’ll see the Mists of Pandaria beta client available for download from there. We expect this entire wave to take a day or so to complete.
We appreciate the enthusiasm of everyone who signed up for the World of Warcraft Annual Pass, and we’re working hard to get you into the beta. We know you’re excited to explore Pandaria and test the new content, and we’ll keep you posted here in the forums when we’re ready to send out another wave.

2012/04/03 at 2:16 PM
We’re pleased to announce that the 2012 World of Warcraft Arena Pass is nearly here. Starting April 10, players will be able to sign up to compete against like-minded individuals in a dedicated Arena sandbox. The Arena Pass service will feature access to Arena Pass realms with level-85 character templates and epic gear from Cataclysm.
As an added bonus, we have included an exclusive reward that players can earn by purchasing their Arena Pass and participating in the competition — an Armored Murloc in-game pet,
Murkimus' Little Spear
. Top players will also contend for a chance to achieve the “Vanquisher” title for their live characters. Players that choose to take part in the 2012 Arena Pass will also receive access to a special level-90 realm with upgraded epic gear after the upcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion is released and they’ve upgraded their accounts.
If you would like to demonstrate your Arena prowess, are eager for a chance to earn the exclusive loot, or just want to reserve a spot in the level-90 Mists of Pandaria Arena Pass realm, please check back next week for more details and be sure to register!
April Fool's and News Round Up
2012/04/02 at 7:40 PM
April Fool's is one of our favorite holidays at Wowhead--we love coming up with our own pranks and seeing what other sites get up to! This year, the Wowhead staff plotted and created
a newspost about moggable legendaries and new world events on the Mists of Pandaria beta
--two things that I really wish were real! We hope you all had fun with it--we certainly did with all the disguises, fake database items, and Photoshop magic.
Here's some other April Fool's posts we really liked from around the web:
So how did you like all our grandios announcements yesterday? All nonsense you think? Okay, okay, we admit it: Yes, they were April Fool's pranks. But don't you wish they were real? To let you in on the fun we had yesterday and make sure you didn't miss any of our carefully crafted jokes, we list all of them again in this thread for you to check out. Which of them did you like best?
Happy beginning of April! :)

Mists of Pandaria Preview: Transmoggable Legendaries, New World Events, and More!
2012/04/01 at 2:00 AM
There are some
changes coming to Mists of Pandaria it appears in this latest beta patch. I've always wanted Blizzard to add more events to the world and it looks like they are going to be!
There's going to be a new fishing contest, a special event on every Friday the 13th, and more. There are also a few new rare mobs to discuss, from a Sha boss that focuses on World PvP to a group of vendors that spawn in rare locations that sell recolored legendaries that can be transmogged. A purple Thunderfury? Sign me up!
Oh, one more thing: APRIL FOOL'S.

Traveling Merchants Sell Legendary Reskins
While looking for wild pets added in this patch this weekend, Perculia and I found two very mysterious vendors on the roads in Duskwood and Burning Steppes!
, a Blood Elf, sold us a
for which was
Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker
's model with a purple tint. After selling it, she disappeared into the shadows, saying she would be back again next night. It's also worth noting that we could transmogrify it, which I've included a screenshot of.
Mists of Pandaria: Jade Forest Quest Preview
2012/03/31 at 9:46 PM
The Jade Forest
has undergone an extensive revision since we first previewed it, to better demonstrate the Alliance and Horde conflict. This zone is the first zone players will reach upon questing in Pandaria. Unlike past expansions, there are not two options for starting zones.
Players will acquaint themselves with Pandaren culture, as well as the Jinyu and Hozen. The Alliance will trace Anduin Wrynn's disappearance, and both sides will have a tragic clash by the
Temple of the Jade Serpent
, a new 5-player dungeon. Players will also have to return to The Jade Forest at 90 to train with
Order of the Cloud Serpent
in order to ride Cloud Serpent mounts.
Of note: some of the early quests reward items that resemble Tier 9 raid gear, like
Jade Forest Quest Chains
Since we first previewed the zone, some changes have been made. Here's some screenshots from the new areas.
Another 100,000 Beta Invites Sent to Annual Pass Holders
2012/03/30 at 5:32 PM
As we covered yesterday, Blizzard sent out 100,000 invites to Annual Pass holders. However, Bashiok just announced they're sending out an additional 100,000 throughout the evening--looks like they're starting to listen to you guys and work to get you all in Pandaria as quickly as possible!
May the odds be
in your favor.
Yesterday’s 100,000 Annual Pass-holder beta-test invites ran through the night, and we’re still in the process of notifying the invitees by email. Those selected for yesterday’s wave of invites should all have the Mists of Pandaria beta client available for download through Battle.net account management, and they should all receive the email notification by end of day today. If the beta client shows up for you in Battle.net account management, you don’t need to wait for the email in order to download the client and begin testing.
We’re off to a solid start with the beta test, and things are looking good in terms of realm stability, so we’re ready to invite another wave of Annual Pass holders. A second wave of invites is going out to 100,000 more Annual Pass holders today, starting right now.
Mists of Pandaria: Temple of the Jade Serpent Preview
2012/03/30 at 12:09 AM
Table of Contents
Sha of Doubt
We ran through the
Temple of the Jade Serpent
today--it's a pretty quick instance but each wing is richly detailed. You can also buy all glyphs for from a vendor right inside the instance. All bosses dropped ilvl 425 loot, but they were reskins of 4.3 gear and didn't have real names yet, like
Chestguard of Despair
The instanced version of the
Temple of the Jade Serpent
looks practically identical to the outdoor quest version--except it's been corrupted by the Sha. The library and water wings are accessible, as is the central area where questgivers and monks trained formerly. After questing through The Jade Forest, it's intriguing to find out how the temple ended up in such a state.
Corrupted Living Water
elementals scatter the hallway by the Fountain of the Overseeing, along with dead Jinyu. When they die, they leave a harmful pool with
Mists of Pandaria Beta Invites Being Sent Out to 100,000 Annual Pass Holders
2012/03/29 at 10:32 PM
Were you looking for a beta invite? Well refresh your inbox, according to Blizzard there will be 100,000 invites going out right now.
We appreciate that everyone who signed up for the Annual Pass is genuinely excited about seeing the new content and helping us test it for release. We definitely want to get all Annual Pass holders into the beta test as soon as humanly (and technologically) possible.
To do so, we need to make sure that our new systems remain stable as we add players. If we let everyone in at the exact same time, we risk damaging the stability of the service, and then no one would be able to play. We can’t let everyone in at the same time; however, all Annual Pass holders will be invited before any opt-ins.
We’re in the process of sending 100,000 invites to Annual Pass holders, and we recommend keeping an eye on your email and Battle.net account for an invite to come explore Pandaria.
Rest assured that we WILL get all of our Annual Pass holders into the beta test. Thank you for the passion and support you’ve shown for the game, and please be patient with us as we continue driving hard toward finishing up Mists of Pandari
