Default MoP Beta Has Begun + Gallery Updates

The Mists of Pandaria beta has officially begun!

In support, I've actually updated our MoP Gallery (*gasp*) with all the screenshots and art from the press event earlier in the week.

I've also uploaded a few beta screenshots of my own. Not much here now since apparently the high level zones are not yet accessable. But I took some shots of a few of the new interface elements I noticed. I'll add more of the starting area later, and obviously even more in the future. Enjoy.

Update: There are now a handful of screenshots from the Pandaren starting area up. Be sure to check out some of the Pandaren emotes! (no /dance yet) /kiss and /sleep are absolutely priceless.

Update #2: Screenshots of the new Scholomance and Scarlet Monastery are up starting here! Both dungeons are still rather buggy (more than once I got trapped behind closing doors, including once where I wasn't supposed to), but the changes seem pretty cool from what I could tell. Scarlet Monastery in particular does a good job of consolidating two dungeons into one, finally forcing people to actually go to the Graveyard when it's not Hallow's End

The Pandaren race icon looks to the right, just like the Alliance races.


ALLIANCE BIAS!

The female Pandaren icon is a male with a bow.

MALE BIAS!

Is your avatar a female Arthas in a bikini or a Lich Queen Jaina in a bikini?

And why is she in a bikini? I hear Icecrown is quite cold this time of year.

Jaina. I also have the same picture without the bikini if you'd prefer that one. It would at least alleviate the temperature issues for males.

This...



...this is something that I should probably take a look at. For science.

How so?

There are arrow buttons on each page if you're referring to having to go back and forth between the thumbnails and large pictures...

P.S. - I am uploading the last batch now which covers up to the end of the starting zone.

Also, it amazes me this hasn't been fixed since Blizzcon

I'm clicking the pictures and getting sent to what appears to be a random picture in the middle of several hundred, I can't tell if each little subset with numbers ranging from 20-29 are all part of the same gallery and different 'sections' or separate galleries of hundreds of shots.

Go here specifically:
http://www.scrollsoflore.com/gallery....php?album=111

Coppermine is kind of retarded and doesn't use specific links - everything is relative to sort order or something. But if you go specifically to the beta screenshot gallery it should only be those screenshots.

Added a few more. If you still needed evidence that the starting area was gorgeous:


P.S. - I would kill for a "hide all nameplates when you ALT-Z" option. So annoying.
