WoW: Mists of Pandaria opens first raid

Now that you've had a few weeks to prance gaily around the definitely-not-Asian land of Pandaria, it's time to put on your raiding trousers and get down to serious business. Blizzard yesterday opened up the Mogu'shan Vaults, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria's first raid for you to throw your corpses at in the hope of striking shiny loot. The Mogu'shan Vaults is a raid for 10 or 25 people in Kun-Lai Summit, with six bosses for you to crack open like loot pinatas. It's not on the Raid Finder just yet, though. For that, you need to consult upcoming raid schedule Blizzard also detailed:
  • Tuesday, Oct 9 - Heroic Mogu'shan Vaults and first half of Mogu'shan Vaults on Raid Finder
  • Tuesday Oct. 16 - Second half of Mogu'shan Vaults on Raid Finder
  • Tuesday, Oct. 30 - Normal Heart of Fear and Normal Terrace of Endless Spring (Must clear Heart of Fear first) with Heroic and Raid finder versions unlocking one week later
Fear not, once you're happily farming the Vaults, Blizzard will be bringing you more.

Say, what are all these lion statues doing in the Vault?
