Wow, thought the forum was gone for good this time...

Blizzard added a "upgrade to WoW 5.1" feature on the battle.net accounts yesterday.  Historically that usually means the release date announcement is coming.  That pegs release of MoP, barring some unforeseen issue, as probably planned for between September/November of this year.

Does anyojne have any thoughts about MoP?  I've been pretty casual through the entire Cata Xpac, and don't really see myself returning to the hardcore fold.  It does look like it has a lot of fun stuff, though, so I expect that I will play, if not as a regular raider.

What are the plans of others?

I'm hoping to continue raiding, and perhaps getting a second ten man group going.

Blizz announced, for the first time, a digital collector's edition for MoP today.  I'm not sure what's included yet.

This seems kind of odd to me, as the physical version usually has a music CD, "making of" materials, mousepad, art book, etc.  It would be kind of hard to justify a similar price for strictly digital content.

I can find no official Blizzard announcement related to this.

Heroes of Azeroth, prepare to embark for an exotic new frontier! World of Warcraft®: Mists of Pandaria™ is launching on September 25, 2012 and you can be ready to play when the servers go live by pre-purchasing the game digitally. Plus, for the first time ever, players will have the option to upgrade a pre-purchase to the all-new Digital Deluxe Edition which comes with all of the in-game items from the retail Collector’s Edition, including a World of Warcraft pet and mount, banner sigil and accent for Diablo® III, and Battle.net® portraits for StarCraft® II.

Beginning September 25, 2012, World of Warcraft players around the world will be able to set sail for the long-lost continent of Pandaria, where they’ll explore forgotten dungeons, vanquish risen evils, and play their part in the Horde-Alliance conflict as it reaches a critical breaking point.

Whether you plan to level your existing character to 90 or start fresh with a new pandaren monk, it’s never too early to begin preparing for your adventure. Simply log in to your Battle.net® account, and then pre-purchase Mists of Pandaria. You’ll then be flagged to automatically download the expansion content prior to release so you’ll be ready to go when the game launches.

During the pre-purchase process, you’ll have the option to grab either the Mists of Pandaria Standard Edition for $39.99 USD or the all-new Digital Deluxe edition for $59.99 USD -- or, if you snag the standard edition now and decide you want to upgrade to Digital Deluxe later, you’ll have the opportunity to do so for an additional $20.

The Digital Deluxe edition includes a full digital copy of the expansion, as well as a selection of Pandaria-inspired in-game content for World of Warcraft, Diablo III, and StarCraft II. If you’re looking for even more plunder, a special Mists of Pandaria Collector’s Edition with additional bonus items will also be available exclusively at select retail locations for a suggested retail price of $79.99 USD.

For more details on the September 25, 2012 release of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, be sure to hit the official press release, or head to our new Mists of Pandaria game page to learn more about the expansion and prepurchase your digital copy.

*When you pre-purchase World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, you will be able to download an encrypted version of the game once it’s available, prior to the game’s release. This content will be unlocked and available
