There's so much to look at that we had to resort to a massive gallery to even get a little of it for you. After the cut, I'll talk about some of the daily quests and how they play out.
Upon reaching the saurok region of the isle, I was immediately transformed into a saurok myself via a magical device, which is when I started running around doing what I could. One of the cool things I found were the scattered Cache of the Thunder King chests throughout the saurok part of the zone, containing gold, a vendor grey that sold for between 25 and 35g, and a Lei Shen Ritual Stone.
The interesting bit about the ritual stone is, according to the flavor text, it's a special focus that allows you to summon powerful combatants that will require a group to defeat. Sadly, I had no such group at the time, but it's very interesting. The quests themselves vary from the interestingly weird (like collecting four downed arcane golems, one of which is having an emotional breakdown) to surreptitiously making contact with agents behind the lines.
I also discovered some new lore - apparently the saurok are not buying the mogu party line about their origins, and have found a god to worship... a seven and a half ton tyrant dinosaur god, at that.
One thing that was really fun to see was the return of old faces. So far, Lor'themar Theron is my candidate for best move into the spotlight of this expansion, and both he and Rommath make appearances here. But as cool as the Sunreavers are, the Kirin Tor sort of steal the show with the return of an old friend.
