Top 5 Epic Moments from Mists of Pandaria

Introductory Cinematic

If there is one thing Blizzard does right every single time it is their cinematics. Better than some movies I've seen, these cinematics are always worth watching and the one created for Mists of Pandaria is no exception. Not only is it visually stunning but here we get our first glimpse of the land of Pandaria, the start of what will become a monumental battle between Horde and Alliance and even a glimpse of player favorite Chen Stormstout. The opening cinematic really sets the mood and tone for the entire expansion and should be a must see for every player.


Meet Shen-zin Su

Shen-zin Su is the amazing turtle that carries around the Pandaren starting zone on his back. Typically, this guy just spends his time propelling himself forward through the ocean. However, due to some unforeseen circumstances (namely the arrival of the Alliance and Horde) it becomes paramount that Shen-zin Su be spoken to for the first time in generations. This task leads players on an engaging quest adventure that lead up to climbing aboard a hot air balloon and finally meeting Shen-zin Su face to face, an event not to be missed out upon.

Serpent's Heart

One of the major events taking place in the Jade Forest is the creation of a giant statue at Serpent's Heart. This statue has been a work in progress for nearly three generations. Upon completion will be used by the spirit Yu'lon to transfer her life essence into and a new generation will be born. However, this is simply not to come to pass. In a heart wrenching scene the Horde and Alliance face off. The hatred and anger release some very nasty sha and ultimately when the dust settles the statue has been utterly destroyed. While this epic moment may twist the heart, it is one of the best moments that takes place in Mists of Pandaria.

Defending Stoneplow

Stoneplow is a Pandaren settlement located in the western part of the Valley of the Four Winds. Once a thriving farming community, Stoneplow has come under attack by invading mantid who have managed to swarm through the Great Wall directly from the Dread Wastes. An involved and super fun quest line to save the townsfolk and stem the tide of mantid ensues, ending with the lucky hero fighting their way out of the bowels of a giant bug. Not sounding epic enough for you? Also found here is the quests that will also lead you onward to the Hidden Master, another epic piece of Mists of Pandaira gameplay.

The Hidden Master

The object of Lin Tenderpaw and company's quest, the Hidden Master is a seclusive martial arts genius that is often sought out by those dedicated enough to the arts to want to take their training to the next level. Lin and company will search for the Hidden Master (also known as Master Bruised Paw) all over the Pandaren continent. Lin will find information about Master Brusied Paw in the village of Stonepaw, and will seek him out with you in tow.

Master Brusied Paw resides in the northern portion of the Valley of the Four Winds. Once you have reached him you will be taken under his wing and your training will begin. Several quests and short cut scenes later and your training will be complete and you will have taken part in easily one of the best moments in Mists of Pandaria.
