Somewhere in this forum, I mentioned my history with WoW. I'm curious to know what the differences are between Cataclysm and Mists. For instance, Cata brought us the worgen and the goblin races. MOP gave us Panda (and I don't remember if there was another race). In MOP, did they remove any of the old races? Can I still play a Worgen in MOP? Were dungeons removed? Did the landscape change between Cata and MOP - like it did between Wotlk and Cata?

Hello
They added a new continent. You could always play with Worgen. If not the other continents were almost untouched.
The quettes were modified. And the old raid to be able to do it solo

MoP was very similar to late Cata. New race and class added and then a new continent with the same kinds of new and scripted content cata had. WoD was really when WoW shifted to what it is today.

Mythic mode was released for the first time on MOP, the appearance of a mount carrying a transmogrifier, beautiful mounts in the jewelry trade etc ...

This thread might be old but:

Compared to Cata, MoP had a LOT of changes, some of them:

Scenarios
Challenge Mode Dungeons
Flexible Raids
Brawlers Guild
Isle of Thunder and Timeless Isle

Way better landscaping overall (in my opinion)
Better storyline including a lot of scenes/movies/cinematics compared to Cata

I feel like Mists Of Pandaria was THE expansion for WoW (seemed like Blizzard cared the most about WoW at this time) -> every xpac after, it kinda went down the river in my opinion.

The model and textures for that jewelcrafting onyx panther mount is in the files for 4.3.4. It's in the "wow-update-base-15595.mpq" file, listed as "Flying Panther". If you wanted to add it in as a functioning mount you probably could since you're so good at those things Jivani. :)

At least I think so. It seems to use the same model as the Winged Guardian, it just puts a bunch of armor and wings on top of it. Could be wrong but the textures are definitely there for Onyx Panther.

you just need a copy of normal tiger acar in the DBCs you can make any earthly mount a flying mount or vice versa depending on what the creator wants.
