Next WoW Expansion: Mists of Pandaria

Blizzard announced today, at BlizzCon, the next expansion for World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria. I know, people have asked for this for a long time, and there's been a Pandaren in the game since Warcraft 3, but still...I just don't know. on the one hand, it's gorgeous, they outdid themselves on it, and it sounds like they have added a good storyline for it. On the other hand, it feels...a little silly. I don't understand why the Pandaren are working for both sides, I'm iffy about the new class (and I hope that it's no a Hero class), and I'm leery of what they are going to do/add to the talent trees. One thing I'm pretty sure about, the "pet battle system" needs to die a horrible fiery death.



It's beautiful, and I do look forward learning the new lore, etc. Just wondering if this is the straw that will break my enjoyment. I left City of Heroes because I lost the immersion of it all. Expansions started to feel less like the continued evolution of the world's story line, and more like "game additions". That's fine and all, but a lot of my enjoyment comes from getting caught up in the world and setting. Some of what Blizz is adding in this new expansion is feeling that way. If that turns out to be the truth, then my days of playing WoW are definitely numbered.
