Today's answers are short, but it doesn't mean that I don't love you. It just means that the questions didn't require long answers, and also that someone thought it'd be really funny to post the same comment half a dozen times on different accounts, each comment acquiring half a page of replies saying variations of "shut up already." Nice work by all involved.
Above is the first single from Justice's new album, Audio. Video. Disco.
Who are the Mogu, and have they been around in lore even before MoP?
They're the old masters of the Pandaren, and no, they have not been around in lore prior to this expansion announcement. The most important thing you need to know about the Mogu is that they look like Foo Dogs, and that makes them awesome.
The Sha have been identified as one of the major enemy groups, essentially darkness and negative energy made solid. Well, this site pointed out that we've seen that name before in the game: Sha'tar, Shattrath, Sha'naar... apparently, in the lore, "Sha" means light... in demonic. (originally Eredar.)
Given that Pandarens can't be warlocks, do you think there's still a chance of some demonic machinations at work in Pandaria?
"Sha" means "light" in Eredar, not in Pandaren. You're reading into it too much.
The expansion is called Mists of Pandaria. From what little we know, when the Pandaren took off some 10,000 years ago, they used some of their ancient magics and all that to surround their island in mist, and help keep themselves hidden.
In 10,000 years, the odds of not stumbling on it way before now are astronomical, so the mists are serving their purpose.
Obviously, when considering that, something has finally happened to break the spell of these mists.
What's the correct single and plural for Pandaren? I'm so confused by random misuse and no obtainable clarification (it may have been said at Blizzcon, but I'd rather not go through all the 9 hours' footage looking)
"Pandaren" and "Pandaren," respectively.
