WoW Insider has the latest on the Mists of Pandaria!

Patch 5.2: Mantid race added to archaeology

The mantid (especially the Klaxxi) have some of the most interesting NPC's in the game, with a mindset all their own and a fascinatingly other perspective on things. They're alien, yet just comprehensible enough to be really offputting yet also strangely compelling in their complete and utter disregard for anyone else but their own kind. Now you can explore their long history via archaeology, as Wowhead has datamined out several new mantid archaeology items.

By collecting Mantid Amber Fragments, you can solve various artifacts such as the Ancient Sap Feeder, the Praying Mantid (which reveals to us that the Klaxxi used to be a kind of priesthood of Y'Shaarj) and even the Remains of a Paragon who didn't quite survive the sap preservation process. Well, his head did. I admit, I was kind of hoping for another Puzzle Box of Yogg-Saron style solve here, maybe a Prayer Litany of Y'Shaarj, but this is still pretty cool.


Mists of Pandaria is here! The level cap has been raised to 90, many players have returned to Azeroth, and pet battles are taking the world by storm. Keep an eye out for all of the latest news, and check out our comprehensive guide to Mists of Pandaria for everything you'll ever need to know.
