So, I got into the Beta.
I did not however play that much. I will give you the impressions I got from the small amount that I did play.
I started out by creating a Pandaren Monk. Of course.
I got into the game and there were so many people in the starting area that you could not target the damn quest giver.
I logged off.
I logged on later and actually played a bit (until level 5 or so). So far I am enjoying the story and the starting area for the Pandaren.
Monk seems like it will be a fun class, but as the moment, it just seems very basic (at lower levels). I mostly just jabbed the crap out of baddies until they fell down.
I really like the roll ability. It is good fun.
Second, I copied over Darraxus and took him for a spin. I did a few quests at the beginning of Jade Forrest, and they seemed ok. Nothing ground breaking or anything.
The greatest joy I got was the talent choices you get and the new minor glyphs. The glyph of Thunderclap calls down a lightning strike!
There were two different shout glyphs that allowed me to levitate shortly after a shout and fear all critters in the area. These seem like they are going to be great.
I have now figured what I will stockpile for the patch before Pandaria as well....glyphs. There is going to be a killing made on glyphs one the changes go through.
Also, Area LOOT is awesome. I didnt even realize it was happening at first lol.
Pet Battles are not up yet. That is one of the top things I was looking forward to testing.
I dont plan on doing much in the beta outside of trying a few different things out.
What are your first thoughts?
