As promised the Pandaren starter zone was a wonderful, colorful start to the expansion, filled with beautiful Asian-style details and painted in a colorful palette.  I loved the vegetable patch sub-zone with giant vegetables and marauding bunny-men.  It is a nice change from all the doom and gloom of the starter zones for the Alliance since the Cataclysm.

Nude Pandarian Female Model BETA

I saw this amusing screenshot from the Mists of Pandaria Beta on Reddit.  I have always wondered if artists started out with a “naked” character model texture before adding the default undergarments to characters.  I guess now I know.

PS This was also the first image I saw of the red-tail panda model.  Me Likes!

Quick Shot – Into the Maelstrom

While I am sure you’ve seen similar screenshots, I think of this as the iconic image for Cataclysm.  That first quest that hits you when you log in as a level 80 on launch day, the cool but too brief cutscene with Thrall at the Maelstrom and this moment at 82 when you meet him and fly into Deepholm.

Quick Shot – Gnome Bowling in Uldum

One of my favorite quests in Uldum ends with a fantastic vehicle sequence in which you ride a fusion core to “eliminate” infected gnomes.  There is a great Katamari feel to the whole quest and who can resist mowing down tons of gnomes.  It is second only to the gut spliting humor of the previous quest to “hack” the Gibson supercomputer.

Quick Shot – Deathwing visits the Barrens

I was taking the flight from Thunderbluff to Orgrimmar yesterday when I ran into the big bad himself, Deathwing.  Fortunately I was safely in-flight so I wasn’t killed by his flames, but unfortunately this also meant that I did not get the achievement for being killed by him. Nonetheless it was suitably epic.

PS.  If you are trying for the achievement you need to be on the ground when the fire hits.  Jumping into the fire as it burns like a Twilight Cultist, won’t work.

Better late than never, I finally got to finish my quests for Shadow’s Edge on Antagonist.  A great quest chain, especially for the lore, and after all what are you going to do with the 11,000 justice points converted after the 4.01 patch but buy the last primodial saronites I needed.

I love the moment captured in this screenshot and it will be a fond memory of the events heading up to Cataclym.  It was a great part of the quest chain and combined a sense of purpose and Buffy/Evil Dead style humor with mispronoucing the incantation to mess up the summoning.
