"Mist-shrouded Darkmoon Island is a conundrum wrapped in an enigma. It's a place of mystery and wonder, and you wouldn't believe the deals we made to get it... or who we made 'em with."Mists-Pandas. Anyone? "Or who we made 'em with." Pandas? Will be interesting to see if maybe a pandaren NPC makes their way to the fair. 4.3 most likely won't roll out until after Blizzcon ;)

The first thing I'm going to do once this goes live is to venture into those woods.Because now I must. I want to know why they are so dangerous. XD

Pandaren were the first thing that popped into my mind.The name "Pei" practically confirms it.

It certainly wouldn't be the first time they slipped hints at future content into an expansion.They secretly included the RELEASE DATE for Cataclysm in their Operation Gnomeregan announcement.

Oh, apparently that is the Whack-A-Gnoll game.Still, the heads more resemble pandas than gnolls.

@NoYouAh, Im glad Im not the only one who saw that.I have a feeling that this was intended to roll out with 5.1, but someone had the brilliant idea to have a vendor there to sell old gear for Mogging, so it was pushed forward for 4.3. If this was meant for 4.3 we likely would have heard of it with the rest of the Gamescom stuff, but with that fantastic idea to put the transmogrifying stuff there, it got moved up a little.I will put real money on the bet that this is a hint that Mists of Pandaria is that long hoped for 'islands of WoW' expansion and we'll get Kul Tiras and other 'forgotten' places with that. That little 'Misty island' line really sealed the thought for me.Of course I'll happily pay up if Im wrong!
