Mists of Pandaria Beta Recap

Updated Thu, May 31, 2012 by Mem

Keeping up with the changes happening in any beta is difficult and the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria beta is no exception. The beta is in a near constant state of disarray with things being added and removed almost daily. To say the least, it is quite the task to keep up with things and can become rather frustrating.

In order to alleviate some of this frustration, we here at Ten Ton Hammer have pulled together a listing of everything we feel is important to know about the Mists of Pandaria beta. .Below you will find where the beta currently stands, what changes and additions are particularly exciting, and what has been tossed on the backburner for the time being. So read onward and say goodbye to those beta changes blues, at least for the moment.

Mists of Pandaria Beta Overview

The Mists of Pandaria beta probably resembles what the finsihed product will look like.

Currently players entering into the Mists of Pandaria beta will find a vastly different product from the one experienced by those who experienced it in its infancy. The beta today feels like a mostly done product. Having a near constant stream of feedback over the course of several months apparently has paid off. While there are still many features, raids, and arenas unavailable players will find that the beta will offer a rich experience that is a good indicator of the finished product.

With that being said, this is still a beta and things are far perfect. For example in any given day there is a good chance quest items won’t spawn no matter how many mobs you kill, abilities will only function half the time or not at all, and sometimes the entire thing will crash and burn in a fiery ball of glory that will make even the most calm WoW player contemplate /face palming.

Don’t let the problems deter you from experiencing the Mists of Pandaira beta while it is still available. This is the perfect time to not only test out the cool new features, zones, and other goodies coming in the newest expansion, but also provides you with a chance to have your voice heard about what changes need to be made to make this expansion great. Sure the beta is unpolished, but it is exactly this lack of refinement that can make it so appealing. Wondering what you should be checking out once you log into the beta? Read onward to find out!

Remember, this article is still a beta and things are far perfect.
