We have been told earlier this year that Molten had started working on developing a Mists of Pandaria server. Along with hiring new staff (which included reverse engineers most likely for MoP), we may just see their MoP realm releasing sooner than we think.
I was browsing Molten’s forum today and came across a new guide for installing Mists of Pandaria. It hadn’t really phased me because other members have already made guides for installing MoP if I could recall. Anyways, the moderator Zelta, the one that made the infamous Cataclysm launcher for Molten has now made a Mists of Pandaria 5.4.2 installer, with a screenshot of Molten’s new realm, Stormscout, confirming that Molten may be releasing MoP within the year.
According to staff, there will be a new announcement soon on the website so keep your eyes peeled.
What is currently known about the Mists of Pandaria realm is that unlike their Cataclysm upgrade process, everyone will start fresh; there will be no transfers in and out of this realm, however that may be subject to change. I suspect that they will open the realm in an ‘open beta’ phase so players can spot any serious bugs/exploits before they fully release.
That’s all for now, what do you guys think about Molten developing MoP? Is it too soon, or too late, should they be focusing their priorities on their current expansions, will the work load be too much?
