The ancient seat of the pandaren empire has been hidden for generations, shrouded in mists and walled-off by impassable mountains. The waters of the Vale are believed to have mystical powers… which has attracted the attention of ancient enemies as well as power-hungry factions within the Alliance and Horde. What secrets lie buried below this mystical font of power?

One of the first things I noticed when I entered the area was how slow the NPCs moved. The area itself seems to be heavily phased as your progress is based on gaining reputation through daily quests. There will also be no cross-faction city in Pandaria as a result of growing hostilities between the Horde and the Alliance meaning both sides will get their own capital city in the Vale.
