WoW Insider has the latest on the Mists of Pandaria!

Breakfast Topic: Were you impressed with the Mists of Pandaria press event?

Now that the NDAs have been lifted and we've had some time to digest all of the new Mists of Pandaria information from the big March presser, were you impressed with what you saw? As predicted, the female pandaren model is under community scrutiny but with a fervor greatly diminished from that shown during the many iterations of the female worgen. Players are especially excited about Mists of Pandaria's conclusion, which involves both factions' removing Garrosh Hellscream as warchief of the Horde. A lore surprise dominating the WoW headlines is a big deal for the CDev team.

What no one complained about was how gorgeous the environments, characters, and effects looked. For a game with a decade-old engine, WoW is really pulling some "rovers on Mars" crap on us. One day, when the Martian storms blow the final WoW server offline, we can put this game to bed.

Did you get what you wanted out of the Mists of Pandaria presser? Will all this knowledge and the very important fact that Mists seems close to completion be enough to tide you over until beta? Sound off in the comments.

Mists of Pandaria news coming in March with press sneak peek

Blizzard has announced that some information is coming about the highly anticipated Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft's fourth expansion -- well, information with regards to when there will be information about Mists of Pandaria. In the middle of March, Blizzard will hold a special press event for members of the media to see what kind of progress has been made, in showable form, since BlizzCon 2011's impressively far-along demo.

As Nethaera posted, information is coming, and we now have a date. This feels like Blizzard's taking a page from the Apple book. Pressers and hype events like these work incredibly well for a company like Blizzard that is very much an Apple of its industry. By calling its own press conferences, conventions, and press trips rather than announcing information amongst the rest of the gaming industry at conventions like PAX, the message is much more focused and clear -- the cacophony is removed. I'm excited to know when new information will be available. Of course, I'd rather have the information, but a day to hope for is better than nothing. It's gonna get busy in March.
