Return to Pandaria

Return to Pandaria

With the absolute disaster Warlords of Draenor was, I thought it would be nice to talk about some pictures and screenshots I got from Mists of Pandaria and the fact that perhaps that xpac wasn’t as bad as so many people made it out to be.

Before Patch 5.3 “Escalation” dropped and the Vale of Eternal Blossoms was destroyed, I decided to get myself a bunch of screenshots of things I knew were getting wiped out after doing the 5.3 preview on the PTR. I’m actually glad I did even though we can never see these in their “pristine” form again (to use a recently thrown-up term, BLIZZARD)  But this was the Golden Pagoda as it was before it got obliterated in 5.3.

People may remember the two giant Mogu statues before they got blown up? Here’s a shot of them.

Another shot I got at a distance of the two giant Mogu Statues in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms before they – or at least one of them was smashed in Patch 5.3.

Another shot of the Golden Pagoda as it was before.

In the early days of my guild, Brew City Horde, my shaman, Treedragon– getting some screenshot pictures with some of the Golden Lotus members. I managed to get all the achievements available at the time for the Golden Lotus under “Eternally in the Vale” on both this character and my hunter before they disappeared with patch 5.3.

This shot I’m on my hunter at the Golden Pagoda with the members of the long-deceased Golden Lotus faction, once again- the only other toon I ever got “Eternally in the Vale” on before they took it away.

The gateway leading up to the Golden Pagoda from just east of the statues in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.

My hunter from back then with some old faces you can now only see in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid.

I have some more pictures I’ll be uploading at a later time but this is what I have for today.

Until next time… God bless!
