They've got to do SOMETHING. I mean, the whole time thing is all well and good at the moment (hahaha), but when MoP comes out, it's going to be terrible. For a new pandaren, you'll have to start off in the present, then go back to post-Cata vanilla world, then make a huge jump back to Outland, then come forward a little bit to Northrend, then forward again to Cataclysm (again), and then forward again to the present. They can't keep going like this, srsly.

I think the story part of it could use a facelift. Thinking about it, when they updated blasted lands they had a good opportunity to do so. The only reservation I have, is how much would it set new content back. Considering the amount of time people spend in outland now, I have to think It is a low priority. Now, seeing as how they might like the 5 levels of new content model, perhaps 90-95 will come with a "back to the outland" revamp.

I'm seeing this a lot about the Pandaren starting zone, and I don't think the assumption that the Pandarens start in the present is necessarily true. The starting zone is entirely separate from the 85-90 continent of Pandaria. It could easily be contemporary with, say, the Goblin and Worgen starting zones.

You know, I hadn't thought about it that way, noyou, but if they're only giving us 5 levels again they had dang well better include an update to Outland and/or Northrend. Part of their justification for Cata's relatively minimal content was "But we spent SO MUCH TIME AND EFFORT revamping the Old World!" Now they will have no such excuse.
