Mists of Pandaria
So, BlizzCon has revealed our next expansion, Mists of Pandaria. Here are the main points of the expansion:
  • Level cap raised to 90
  • New class: Monk
  • New race: Pandaren
  • Pve Scenarios
  • Pet Battle System
  • New Talent System
  • New continent
  • Challenge Mode Dungeons

The player Pandaren are different than the Pandaren on Pandaria. The player Pandaren have the "wonderlust", which caused them to set sail on the back of a giant turtle in search of other things/adventures in the world. They have spent generations on the back of this turtle. These Pandaren will begin as a neutral race and will decide which faction to represent at level 10.

Monks will be a martial arts related class. They can be tanks, melee dps, or healers. This class will have no auto attack, instead relying on cheap or free abilities that can be used as fillers.

WoW Annual Pass
Blizzard also unveiled their new Annual Pass. By committing to 12 months of WoW (payable by any of the current payment plans: 1, 3, or 6 months at a time), you receive Diablo 3 for free, guaranteed access to the Mists of Pandaria beta, and a special in-game mount: Tyrael's Charger.

Yep. That's right. Diablo 3 for free. Oh, you wanted a collector's edition? Well, when you purchase the CE, you'll receive a code that will credit you for 4 months of WoW game time! So, 4 of your 12 month commitment will be free.

Might we see this with Starcraft II's upcoming releases as well?

According to Blizzard, this is a "limited time only" thing, but I doubt it will remain limited. The idea of someone committing to a 12-month subscription is likely appetizing to Blizzard.

Theramore to be Destroyed in Patch 5.0?
A taiwanese website has received some information from Tom Chilton in an interview. Here's the translation:
[quote]The whole war will be ignited during the world event which leading the game into Mist of Pandaria. Theramore will be destroyed and the leaders of Alliance were outrageous at this matter and completely devote themselves into the war, which reach its peak on the continent of Pandaria. The Horde and the Alliance literally fought on the homeland of Pandaria, which pissed the pandarens off.

Most of the pandarens are neutral characters. And some of them thought the Horde and the Alliance only brought doom to their beloved homeland, and have enmity against both factions. The players pandarens are in a different group. They departed Pandaria long ago and choose their own path. They choose their own faction when level 10, so they don't have a faction leader.[/quote]
