The Valley of the Four Winds is currently available for testing in the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria beta. The zone looks a bit like Nagrand without those huge canyons.
The video starts with the last quest of The Jade Forest talking to Fei the Jade Serpent.
She flies you to the Valley of the Four Winds where you meet Chen Stormstout and his niece Li Li.
Chen asks to stay at the Pang’s Stead. It’s the first time he comes to Pandaria and he doesn’t even know where he’s going. He just wants to explore the land.
Those who level up alt characters or newcomers can gear up items ilevel 372 through a vendor located at Pang’s Stead. Talk to Claretta (Assorted Weapons and Armor). The items are purchased with gold rather than Valor/Justice points.
Throughout the questing experience in this zone, Chen will be moving from place to place with you, meeting other pandaren and helping each in their current situations.
Sometimes Chen will go on his own, and leave you to take care of Li Li who also wants you to tour her throughout some areas of the zone, and you get to help those people too.
It’s more dynamic in Mists of Pandaria to do quests, when the NPCs come along with you.
This zone seems fit for leatherworkers, fishers, tailors (The Silkmasters)
