Is it just me, or does Pandaria starts out HARD?

I got two characters there, a warrior and a monk, soloed it with the warrior but had to be very careful with my pulls.
After I finished off the horde boss that jumps through the portals and turns to a demon things started to calm down.

With my monk I encountered a mage and we did it together and it was still kind of hard.
Just wondering if anyone else had a rough time.

Expansions generally do start out a bit hard as the enemies are essentially in a new "tier" stats-wise, while you're still in your s***ty pre-expansion gear and level.

I didn't really find it that hard but the way they scaled it seems a bit off at first. But they give you new items fairly quickly so it balances out quickly.

Well Rama, I disagree, I played this monk and facerolled TBC, WOTLK and CATA, yet Pandaria is a real challenge.
jlc992 I hope your right, though its cool to actually fight for my life for once! :D

for me it doesn't seem to get hard until you hit Townlong Steppes.

If you mean they weren't a challenge recently, that's kind of the point. They aren't current, so they scale them down a bit. Doing Vashj'ir in full wrath greens terrible.

I would say do every quest you can in every area. It help unlock new things plus you be about a level above the recommended area so that should make it a bit easier.

I found the jump to Cataclysm harder, especially now with how early (and low-geared) you hit 80, enemies in early Hyjal have three times or more health and hit much harder than what you were just fighting in Dragonblight.

If you did them while they were current, you'd have a point.

This. The start of Pandaria wasn't bad at all imo.
