Farewell, Pandaria


Very soon, Blizzard will flip the switch on Warlords of Draenor and we will all zerg rush towards the new content like a dehydrated adventurer who has just spotted an oasis on the horizon. Mists of Pandaria copped a lot of heat from the outset; ‘Care-bear Pandas,’ dailies as far as the eyes can see and a distinct lack of ‘War’ in Warcraft had the haters out in droves. Even now, when I talk to many of my friends, they seem to hate the expansion even though they love many of the features that came with it.

Have you ever found yourself in a position where you don’t have a lot in common with this person, or perhaps truly don’t have time for a friendship with this person?
