World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria beta patch build 15657 introduced the Shado-pan Monastery dungeon. The players I tackled this dungeon with had good feedback about the trash mobs, and the boss mechanics.

The dungeon has interior and outdoor scenarios with weather effects. There’s a snow storm going on while walking in the outdoor areas. Take a look at some of our screenshots.

Note: Video coming soon.


Not sure if this is really a spoiler, or a placeholder model, but the Marrowgar model was used in this dungeon. The boss is named Sha of Violence. If this is not a placeholder model, then we might have some new lore about the origin of the Marrowgar creature. It’s been used in Icecrown Citadel (Wrath of the Lich King) and in the Halls of Origination (Cataclysm).
