Yep, WoW’s Big Final Raid for Mists of Pandaria has arrived, and everyone’s either beating on Garrosh’s minions or running around the Timeless Isle grabbing coins like WoW’s a ’90s platformer.
But what does everyone think of this huge final installment for MoP? Is it a win or a meh?
Let’s go to the blogs…
