Mists of Pandaria Opening Cinematic Revealed

A couple hours ago Blizzard released the Mists of Pandaria opening cinematic that was presented at gamescon 2012.

Official Blizzard Quote:

You've ended Deathwing's destructive rampage and saved the dragonflights from extinction. Now you must unlock the mysteries of the lost continent and discover the dark secrets of Pandaria's past. Explore ancient kingdoms hidden since before the Sundering, plunder vast treasures from the depths of the forgotten vaults, and rise to defend Pandaria from the shadow of a long buried evil - before it's too late.

We are pleased to present the opening cinematic for Mists of Pandaria as presented at gamescom 2012. Whether you’re Horde or Alliance, there is one question we all must consider: “Why do we fight?”

The narration made this amazing, but the comedic value topped it.

It wasn't too bad to be honest, I feel like half of you are complaining just to complain.

Or because it wasn't really epic compared to the TBC and WotLK cinematic's. :>

I don't know about you guys, but i felt like it was trying to portray some type of immature comedy when the human passed the spear to the orc, it was a little depressing.

Definitely not something like TBC/Wotlk but you cant blame the business for trying to appeal to a younger target audience i guess.

Other than that however, it did look incredibly impressive tbh.

He passed it to him so they could fight together, as the human already had a weapon.

not to say you go fight him

That's not what he meant..
The scene was supposed to be funny, indicating that the monk was so strong that they stood there with their jaws dropped and even wanting to fight together.

It kinda makes sense to make it somewhat funny. If I remember all these Jackie Chan movies they also always had funny fight scenes so I guess they just tried to copy that.

The whole passing the spear to the horde was a hint at horde and alliance fighting together at some point this expansion imo look at the legendary quest line!
