When Will You Be Able To Play The New World Of Warcraft Expansion?

Just in case you didn't know, the new World of Warcraft expansion pack Mists of Pandaria is being released next Tuesday. Well, you can buy the game at retail from Tuesday — but when can you actually play it? Since Australia is ahead of most timezones, you'll have to wait until the servers are good to go.

Thankfully, Blizzard has sent us over a handy little guide, letting us know exactly when you will be able to start playing the next expansion, and it goes as follows.

New Zealand Standard Time: 7:00 PM Australian Eastern Standard Time: 5:00 PM Australian Central Standard Time: 4:30 PM Australian Western Standard Time: 3:00 PM

So yes, even if you do happen to march into your local store at early o'clock and hand over the cash, you are going to have to wait until those specific times.


    what is this "World of Warcraft Mists of Pandaria" you speak of?

    Or you know, just play Guild Wars 2 and save a bunch of money.

      Yeah and play a game whose player base is players who are waiting for the next wow expansion

      Yes, I haven't bought a game since Mario 64 because why play another game once you have already bought one.

        Yes, because the statement you just made bares so much relevance to the point that Jake was trying to make. Enjoy playing the fourth expansion of a dying game piratepete, and paying $40 for some more uninspired and gimmicky content. I made it to Cataclysm, I'm done with Blizzard's money grabbing for now.

        Subscription fee was the point I was trying to make.

    Installing the update was such a pain in the arse!

    What is everyone's thoughts on this expac?

    I raided pretty hard through BC and Wrath and burnt out then got hacked. Does this offer anything new that can be enjoyed in a much more casual way?

      Raid finder is raiding for casuals. There are also scenarios, 15 - 20 minute 3 man instances that don't require tanks or healers.

      I'd say almost every change that has been made to WoW lately has been to appeal to casual players. So if that's your desire than it should be just the ticket.

    I won't be visiting Pandaria for a while. I'll be too busy in Pandora!

    Saw the commercial on tv, thought it was for kung fu panda 3! Haha

    Gah! Thought they were going live 7pm AEST, going to be late to the launch... KEEN!
