Mists of Pandaria - Mist sold separately
At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on Massively and then present them all in one convenient place. If you missed a big MMO or WoW Insider story last week, you've come to the right post.

When the embargo for World of Warcraft's Mists of Pandaria media event dropped last week, few of us had any idea that the expansion's beta itself was so near. In fact, an NDA-less beta launched on Thursday, complete with an exhaustive FAQ and access scandal. Our sister site WoW Insider attended the event and assembled a splendiferous guide to MoP, covering everything from pet battles and female Pandaren to dungeons and battlegrounds.

If pandas -- I mean, Pandaren -- aren't your thing, stop fretting: Blizzard is already working on MoP's successor. And if WoW itself isn't your thing, then enjoy Massively's other top MMO stories behind the break!
