New Player Guide: Mists of Pandaria Content Overview
16.03.2014 в 10:42
Today we're taking another look at WoW through the eyes of a boosted 90. Earlier in the week, we published
a guide to essentials for boosted 90s
including gearing tips, raid details, professions, and currency overviews.
This guide presents an overview of other new types of content added in Mists of Pandaria, in case you've been away from the game a bit or want a break from the gear grind.
Before we dive into the guide, be sure to check out our
1-60 Leveling Guide
if you want to boost a character but would like them to hit 60 first for the profession boost as well! Also check out our

In Mists of Pandaria, most rewards are now account-wide--titles, mounts, pets, and achievements. This is a lot more alt-friendly than in the past, where you had to farm up the rewards you wanted on each character.
Mounts: All mounts are account-wide save for a few restrictions--mounts from Gladiator PvP, Rated Battlegrounds, Challenge Modes, and class-specific rewards. Riding skills and
are not account-wide, so you will need the appropriate riding skill to ride some distinctive mounts.

An account-wide title is unlocked when you hit the minimum level required for your initial character to earn it. For example, level 80+ characters can wear

Several titles are not account-wide: Arena and RBG titles, as well as realm-first Challenge Modes. For a full list of titles, check out our
Your achievement total is now account-wide, meaning that multiple characters can work on different achievements and it will count towards one total number.
For many meta-achievements, progress is now account-wide as well. For example, two characters can work on seven different achievements each for
Слава рейдеру Оргриммара
and you will complete the achievement. Criteria within an achievement is not account-wide, such as
Лазеры, магниты, буры! Ой-ой!

Pet battling is an extensive new feature in Mists of Pandaria. You can collect pets, fight teams in the wild or other players, and try to beat special tamer challenges--NPCs with tricky pet teams.
To collect pets, you can acquire pets the same way you did before--achievement rewards, vendors, world drops, etc--or you can battle unique wild pets found in every zone.
Pets have a wide array of abilities and come in 10 families which are strong/weak against other specific pet families and have unique passive abilities, like
To level up pets, simply defeat wild pets or other players with battle pet teams. Defeating higher-level teams will give you more experience, and trainer teams are always a reliable source of experience. As you level your pets up, they will unlock more abilities.
Battle pets, even of the same type, can have many variations in stats which are due to several factors.
Quality: Pet qualities are poor, common, uncommon, and rare. You can upgrade a pet to rare quality with special Battle-Stones, which are found in pet reward satchels or bags from doing LFR or Flex.
Base Stats: Each pet species starts off with a distinctive amount of base stat points (Health, Power, Speed), which affects formula calculations for their stats and abilities.
Breed: There are ten possible breeds used for pet calculations. Breeds affect how a pet's stats are allocated as they level up, and each pet has a set list of possible breeds they can be.
